Slalom Consulting folks: what salary would you expect 1-2 years post-MBA? Medium COL city if that matters.

We really don't differentiate between someone with 8 years of experience and an MBA, and someone with 8 years of experience and no MBA. Get one if you think you'll benefit from the knowledge and networking, but Slalom doesn't put a premium on it. If you want a salary bump, spend the same time and get your Salesforce technical architect or similar.

Depends on your pre MBA experience.

I think a MBA can help you better understand core business problems and resolutions via people/process/technology - which will enable you to grow in leadership, acct mgmt and sales. So, overall your salary would likely be higher because of a higher role but you wouldn’t see a higher salary in a lower role because of it.

$115-130K. (And what SC1 said)

Slalom appreciates an MBA cause clients may like it, but they won’t financially value you for it because their business strategy is more technical and data analytics aligned. If you want a financial bump from them, a data related masters is a better bet.

I'd say forget a masters and get the cloud certifications. I doubt a masters would be valuable to Slalom in general. They only value the technical know how you get from it.

I know this has been done to death, but I'm pretty giddy and don't want to tell family/friends. I PASSED THE 1 MILLION NET WORTH MARK! I won't say I did it all on my own, as I was lucky enough to have parents who paid for my education and also gift me $12k/yr of cash for the last few years. But for someone who was making only 36k 8 yrs ago and has only this month broken six figures for base salary, I'm pretty pleased with myself.

I am in a design/production role at a mid-sized agency. We currently only have one person on the digital team doing UX. I recently presented my manager with a proposal for a new position, UI Designer, that I want to move into. I would love some advice on how to negotiate salary on a new position that doesn't current exist. How do you respond to an offer? What if they say it's a lateral move and don't offer me any additional compensation?
