As a smaller player, how does Slalom differentiate itself in the market from Big 4 firms and how are they positioned to grow their business going forward compared to bigger firms like Accenture, MBB, Big4? Is it price? Quality of work? Specialized work? Curious to hear perspective from someone with experience or knowledge of the competitive landscape.
6 months into consulting and bored of being aligned to only 1 industry. Thinking of switching to a small firm but is there a long term career benefit of staying at a big 4 firm for a couple of years?

PwC CMAAS offer in hand, but one thing holding me back from accepting at the moment is the work/life balance. I’m transferring from audit. I understand work/life is a little crazy right now in CMAAS.

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

Anyone with experience negotiating above the stated salary range? Job posting says 75-90k, assuming they offer at the higher end that’s less than 15% pay bump for me but I liked the company and the people I interviewed with.
Got an offer from uber. Taking a pay cut on the base side but compensated with the equity portion where it is a little lower in aggregate than my current salary. Thoughts?
Anyone taken the pay day to switch between competitors (ACN, Deloitte, PwC, etc.)? If so, what kind of raise / bonus did you get? I'm a new consultant making ~$95k. Also interested in MBB figures.
Chicago Tribune: Huge crowd gathers at Rotary Hill near Naperville District 203 offices to demand area schools reopen. Hundreds of Naperville-area parents & students rallied Monday to urge local school boards to bring students back to the classroom and the playing field. Hmm...so all these parents just want to send their kids into schools do die, right? And kill all the teachers and their families too. All out of pure selfishness.
Partners - a candidate has made it to the final round with you. What do you notice and what sets apart a great candidate? More of a poll than a “here’s how to ace an interview."
So I made a job update (promotion) on my LinkedIn profile and made sure to also enable 'Share with Network' but why isn't my network being informed of the good news through notifications. Is there some sort of delay or bug going on with LinkedIn? HELP
What are your thoughts on jumping soon after promotion/comp increase? Does it automatically burn a bridge?
Should be getting a raise by the end of this month, I am definitely being underpaid, do I bring this up before or after I find out how much my raise is?
Ladies I am 35 weeks pregnant and going on maternity leave in 2-3 days. Politics on my project has led to poor project snapshots. What should I do?
I am scared to take a medical leave of absence for depression / burnout even though I know and my therapist agrees it would be the best thing for me to do right now. I feel like I will be removed from my current team and I will be marked in the office as “weak” (even though I was rated 2 and then 1 for PYs) and it will ruin my chances of being promoted to senior next July. Are my fears valid? Will this medical LOA derail my career progression? Or am I thinking about it the wrong way?
What do you guys do for benefits? I was laid off a few months ago and my cobra package is ending soon. I’m doing well freelancing but not sure what my options are for affordable healthcare. Is Obamacare my best option?
