Does Slalom not pay well or have a good 401k match?

Just like nearly every where, some are underpaid (in which case we try and adjust accordingly to not lose talent), others are paid just right, and a few are over paid. I think we aim to be pretty equitable and benchmark well against firms much larger. 401k match is under par but slowly improving.

The more information you have, the better position you're in for negotiation. I had a couple people working for at the end of last year who were both within $5k of my salary and I managed to get a decent bump based on higher expectations in role I am in. Anything is possible, especially if you're similar years experience and equally well received by clients and peers. Rarely ever hurts to ask so long as you aren't overly aggressive in your demands. Make a strong case for yourself and put it in writing.

Can you negotiate and ask for higher salaries after being there to be more in line with peers?

Most everyone we brought over from big 4 or acn received 10-15% pay increases at the lower levels. Experienced consultants and higher got the same pay for a lot fewer hours of work. All in all...i compared the hours i work here against my director and senior manager friends and i easily make 30% more per hour. Now do they make more total...yeah. but do i make a lot and work a ton less hours - oh yeah. And if you are wondering....im talking about pulling 180-190 as a manager over here. Now is this normal....not really...but its sweet for those of those that are brutally efficient and are drivers

Making 90k 3 yrs out of undergrad. I want 115k for C level. Is that reasonable slalom folks?

Back again with a question for the McKinsey folks! 1. Is it true that if you are internal (specifically PD) you are not eligible for a performance bonus? Just base and the 401K profit sharing? 2.

The recruiter painted it as a range (from 7-12%), but other fish in the main consulting bowl said it’s either 7 OR 12% (no in between) based off of if you’re client facing or internal - which is true?
