I’ve heard Slalom is at the top for WLB

Can confirm. My managers have let me turn down projects that I was not comfortable with and usually the hours are 9-5. Sometimes it’s less sometimes a little more. Clients treat us as employees which can be good and bad. Sometimes it feels like staff aug but the projects are generally pretty interesting.

KPMG is one of the better firms from a wlb perspective. Slalom or similar are probably tops.

Look into middle market firms. GT has better WLB than big 4. Probably true for RSM and BDO too.

I agree. GT is great for WLB, especially for govt consulting. I’m exiting to capital one for a nice pay bump

Thanks everyone... how does Slalom rank in terms of compensation? I've set an ambitious goal for myself to be making $200K by the time I'm 35-40yrs old. Is this possible at Slalom? What levels?

You can make 6 figures as a Consultant.

Feeling that my brain has been on “auto pilot” mode for years. I am Principal in one of the top consulting firms, promoted on fast track basis, so have not been “lazy” and doing good at work. But everything feels the same, nothing gets me intellectually stimulated anymore, and now I feel like if the trend continues, I might lose my ability to adapt and learn new things altogether. Does anybody else feel the same way? (Contd).

Alright moms. 4th kid in daycare and this one just won’t nap. We send a portable white noise machine and she has a lovey. But she apparently has serious FOMO. I’ve asked them to move her to the furthest corner. Then moved her to the younger baby room. But I’m out of ideas. 11 months old (10 mo adjusted). I had chalked it up to just starting at daycare but we are almost 2 months in. She’s a hot mess in the evenings. What magic do you have for me. All of my others fell in a routine by now!

need advice. I have been working in an interim role as a portfolio manager. I was promised that the role would be mine. However, after doing the job for 2 months, I have been advised that we might not get the funding for the role and I might not get the raise and the title but my responsibilities will be the same. Its a political minefield. How should I back out elegantly that I need to be compensated fairly and competitively from this mess without burning any bridges
