I just started a job as a Consultant at Slalom. I am immediately getting some “cult” vibes. I think the nice thing is that everybody is super friendly, which is a nice environment to be in. Though it is almost a bit uncomfortable for me, because I am not my authentic self. I am a very dry, analytical, and a no BS thinker - and it’s exhausting for me to be giddy. Anyone else struggle with that? Does it get better once you are on engagement with client?
