Friend of mine speaks highly of working at Slalom (great work / life balance, good pay, culture, can choose to be local or travel, etc.) Sounds too good to be true, can anyone confirm or deny?

I've heard those things but also that it's hard to move around as freely to explore things. Granted, it's hard relatively at every firm... I guess if like consulting but don't like some of the big firm bs that comes with it, slalom could be a good place to go. If you realize consulting is 💩, not even slalom can help you.

I did hear u need a big name on your resume for them to consider you tho.

Big consulting name that is

The only bad thing I heard was my friend who's about to start there out of MBA didn't get a signing bonus...wonder if they do that

What are their levels? I think I read somewhere that it's flat... I know a manager from PwC to went to Slalom to be a "consultant" which is like the only title I've seen

No idea

My own experience... it is too good to be true. Personally, I am disappointed with the leadership here.

Heard the backend HR support is lacking with not a good 401k match. But everyone seems happy with the money they make there.

Thanks.
