@sc1 We mostly only hire experienced so we get a lot of senior consultants and managers. Title wise you would be hired as a consultant or solution architect depending on whether you are on the tech track or biz track. Careers website wise....i think most of the positions that they are hiring for map to those two levels unless stated otherwise

West monroe or slalom. Just ask how far from your home location their clients are as some people have reported commuting 90 mins to reach their clients

Slalom. But we have a lot of clients in the burbs like everyone else

Slalom, are you guys hiring at M level? I'm not sure how your titles map. Thanks!!

Protiviti. Solstice as well, although I'm not sure if they do risk

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.

What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
