Wilson Perumal & Company
Wilson Perumal & Company is a small boutique strategy & operations consulting firm. The company primarily works with commercial, private equity, and government clients in areas like business transformation, growth/tech strategy, business re-alignment, execution, value capture, and cost reduction.
Wilson Perumal has a unique virtual office model allowing consultants to live and work near any major U.S. city. The firm was voted Best Small Strategy Firm to work for by Consulting Magazine (2019) and certified as a Great Place To Work in 2021.
The firm offers a small, collaborative work atmosphere: people stick around here much longer than at other firms.
The firm rarely hires straight MBA grads as it looks for more experienced candidates typically, but the firm is elite in terms of engagements and educational backgrounds. Yet, doesn’t really care where you went to school, as long as you are smart and entrepreneurial.
The process is selective and similar to other firms; roughly 6% of 1st round interviewers are given an offer. The casing is tough and rigorous (2 1st-round cases, 4 final round cases including graphing out operations and inventory levels on the fly) and is Bain-style (most of the partners and managers came from Bain at one time).
