If you had to choose, which one would you work for: KPMG or Slalom? 😄

I really don't get all the K hate on here these days. You guys all sound miserable but I don't see many threads like that from K. Good work/life balance, great relaxed people, not all getting laid off. You could do a lot worse than K.

I don't get looking down at Slalom - different model. You get to be home-ish. That is a great value prop. As for Big5 firm rankings, theres a pecking order but that doesn't mean all Deloitte consultants are superior. The company is the best run of the Big 4 though. Depending on what I wanted from life, I'd choose Slalom over MBB - especially with kids

Does Slalom sponsor work visa?

Ugh that's a tough one. I'd do Slalom in a heartbeat if they traveled, but they don't really, and as my username might suggest, I'm kind of a travel junkie

Slalom. If i do kpmg, then it could look like i didnt really get in at the other big 4. If i did slalom it could mean i'm just looking for something different

⛷ does travel dd. Think I'm about to get a job offer for their cross market team.

They're called Slalom because they meander down the hill vs. skiing straight down. If you're cool with that and have given up on full tilt ambition - go there. It's a good place for people looking for balance

Big 4 is closely related to hunger games. Instead of President Snow, you have PPEDs putting people through trials and tribulations to represent your district (or BU/Practice)

I'm a bit confused about the K hate as well. Shocked someone would be scared of having a mark that they didn't get into other big 4. I turned down a job a Deloitte for K and would do it again 10/10 times. Culture at D isn't a fit for me.

Thinking about moving to London to look for management consulting, any advise and guidance is welcome in terms of what to expect - culture, differences between US and EU, pay, types of engagement etc. would be super nice to speak to someone who made the switch...

How do you ask work (start-up that I’ve been at for over a year) about employer-sponsored health insurance? It was mentioned as an idea during hiring but not enough employees at that time. I’d like to inquire without sounding pushy or financially desperate (in truth, out of pocket expense is killing me but I really like my work and don’t want to sound like I’m ready to jump ship over this).
