I’ve seen people leave Big4 for Slalom and then have come back. Heard the work at Slalom was more staff aug.

Whether slalom is a good fit for you comes down to three things 1. City 2. Group 3. Level Two other things are certain. Slaloms tech skills are better than better than accentures. And as certain - their people's consulting skills are worse than accentures The core issue is that slalom does not have a mid tier that mentors new hires. Basically you have senior analyst / entry level consultants pushed 1-2 levels higher than they should be. The more senior people are all in sales like roles and don't have time to mentor the junior people. It may be a good fit for you if you like being an individual contributor, want to work as few hours as possible or want to bounce to a faang company later on

I think all of this REALLY depends not only on office but on area of work and your skills and interests. I joined in the last year and I see that this is a great place to work culture and work life balance wise, and that it’s amazing professionally for people that have good alignment with the strong practices in your local market or who are extremely entrepreneurial/aggressively sales-y and want to try to create a new revenue stream. Personally, I am finding it difficult to find my place (despite being a rock star with top marks for 8+ years at my old firm) because I think my personal skills are just not a great fit to the office. There are other offices I think I would be shining in, but it’s not my geography. I think they are working to find a place for me but it just feels crappy. So I would be really careful about skill match. I think this is more true at the “leader” levels than the consultant levels.
