Consulting

Any insight into Alixpartners? A recruiter reached out about their restructuring practice? Ive been wanting to move out of Slalom and this seems like it would be a good move during this time

I think it’s a good time to move and heard they take care of their people well during these tough times. I heard that their priority is the safety of their people, and continuing to grow and do the right things for them to make sure they make it through this tough time together. This culture comes all the way through from their exec team being committed to the single item of living our values and doing the right thing as their guide in this unpredictable time. Oh ........ sorry that’s us. I don’t know anything about them good luck.

AP is pretty much the market leader for restructuring and turnaround. Smaller company ($1B+ I think) but has a very good reputation. I think they’re branching out too into Digital and Org Performance too.

With AP you have to take some “entrance exams.” A competency/IQ style exam and if you’re looking at thenTurnaround practice you have to understand finance, cash flow models, be able to create a 13 week cash flow and really know your stuff. Not sure what practice you’re from at Slalom (I’m excited Slalom), but I met very few people at Slalom that had these strengths. I jumped the Slalom ship very fast because I realized If I stayed I’d have a hard time going back to a top firm and my skills would erode. I also knew one Slalom person who left and went to a top boutique and came back crying and begging to return cause they couldn’t cut the mustard. Not saying you’re not capable, just ask a lot of questions and make sure you have the skills they’re looking for so you’re set up for success and will be happy. No matter how great the culture, if you’re not a skills fit, you won’t be happy.

No, not at AP now. I had lengthy conversations with them and was going through the process, but a different firm made me an offer I couldn’t refuse!

We are heating up now with all of the chaos in the markets, and lots of us who don’t normally do so are likely going to do restructuring work in the coming months, myself included. Happy to chat by DM.

These are all consulting firms. Client first always, you’re next. No company is going to bend backwards for you. Stay where you are and try to ride the wave. Maybe 6 -12 months from now, the demand will be high you could jump then.

They've got plenty of ex-MBB and top accounting people from Big 4. A friend who moved there from Bain loves how he is much more like an imbedded executive rather than a consultant. He's run P/Ls for clients for 3-6 months during turnarounds.
