This in unintentionally hilarious that you're asking since McKinsey is the opposite of Slalom in a lot of ways (focus on WLB/kinder culture at the expense of prestige/pay). A foreign concept!

Yo this is the funniest question I've read on Fishbowl. How did it ever get interpreted as the Hebrew word for peace when they have snow covered mountains in half of their marketing material and it is spelled the same was as the ski race? BAHAHAHA.

I'm dying that Slalom consulting went from an innocent ski race consulting firm to a Jewish vs Palestine peace treaty consulting firm. LMAO.

Slah-luhm. It's not a unique word...it's a type of ski ⛷️ race, the one where they weave through flags. It's also the obstacle of poles that dogs weave through in agility courses.

Anyone else think the "Audit Experience" requirement for FDD roles is overblown? From my experience talking and working alongside individuals in FDD is that the first year has a steep learning curve and while an Audit background is a nice to have the work you'll be doing is different from Audit. I would think it would make more sense to bring in an associate sooner rather than wasting another year in Audit when they could already be learning the FDD role.
