I would guess many of us are interested in Slalom. Any info would be appreciated. How are things there now? Would you call it a body shop? Still want to advance quickly like big 4. Is this possible?

Oh didn't know about that, maybe when I'm ready to leave. I have a friend starting in a few weeks there out of MBA so she said she would tell me how she likes it in ATL. I'll prob go thru her for a referral if she likes it. My hesitation is brand recognition with slalom. ACN/big4 looks a little more prestigious, which might be stupid but one of the reasons I joined was to build up my resume

Mostly security, did QA for a security tech company, SOC and been doing security implementations and architecture here. I've heard slalom is recruiting for security but haven't seen too many reqs for NYC. Can you elaborate on digital transformation? Is that like how some banks r trying to eliminate brick and mortar moving to more mobile platforms. I know BOA jus laid 7k people for that very reason.

Great point. I've never worked at PwC so didn't know. Sorry to hear that. Yes, I'd go to a nicer firm then, if you already get that kind of work. The real key will be figuring out how to get the experience so you can go to either another firm or client at a higher level in a few years. Not sure of career at Slalom but really no idea

Slalom is doing very well and growing over 30% a year which none of the big 4 are doing. Not a body shop.. projects tend to be smaller and focused in hot technology areas. Big 4 like advancement is absolutely possible, but there isn't an up or out push.

Why Slalom? Body shop totally. Maybe big aspirations but will be a challenge. I'd bet they are on the block

Tbh good marketing and the local model attracted me. What's behind all of that? That's what I'm trying to figure out.

Same, but a lot of the reqs feel very staff Aug. they jus started posting strategy reqs that actually feel like consulting if that's your route.

Thanks Accenture 1. Sounds like you are looking around as well. I would be looking at their Data Analytics group so I know some staff aug would be unavoidable. They do look like they have good stuff going on especially in Tableau. Wish there were more people on here that actually worked there.

Looking for some perspective and advice. I’ve moved to an in-house analytics organization for a large fortune 10 company and have prior experience with a big 4 and a startup as head of analytics & data science.

Received an offer at an advertising agency for a senior role (slightly more money) and torn on taking the offer or not. This would be my first stint with an ad agency. Potential reasons against: 1) risk? I’m in the safe side already 2) longer hours? 3) less upside growth potential?

I need some advise on my situation. I have 4 YOE and am currently at B4 in the Middle East making ~$70k (no tax). I’ll be getting promoted to manager in Oct (~90k). I applied for a role at a government owned company and was told the TC would be 140-155k. When I got the offer, they asked for my current salary and then only offered 127k. I’m standing firm by saying I want 147k, middle of the original range. How would you play this? Im an expat and don’t intend on being here forever.
