What I found is Slalom’s definition of consulting is completely different from B4 consulting. I didn’t last too long at Slalom and boomeranged back. So maybe it’s worth looking at other firms.

D1 is right. Slalom isn’t structured enough to have industry folks jump right into consulting. I’ve seen folks get left hanging because they’re experienced technically, but not in delivery. Then leadership is knocking them for poor delivery wtf

Have no motivation to apply for jobs. Majority of companies that I apply to have either hiring freezes or I get emails saying job posting has been canceled or put on hold. Anyone that is looking for a job, are you still applying for jobs or have you put your job search on hold?

Is there anybody who moved to International Tax team from another team? Currently promoted senior and I have been working on International Tax items my whole time here, but I feel like I am in lack of training or supervision compared to actual person in ITS. I also do a lot of domestic work, but part of me really enjoys international tax and want to specialize in it. How hard is it to change teams as a senior (from non ITS group), and are those groups hiring or even open to internal transfers?

Not sure why people are complaining about raises and bonuses. I’ve been at the firm 4 years and been happy every single year. If you weren’t a top performer, don’t expect top performer pay.
