Slalom is a great company. If the position and culture seem right to you, I wouldn’t think it too much.

Slalom is great for people that are tired of consulting and want to take a break or want to transition out of big box consulting.

The strategy group varies per office so you will want to ask a lot of questions to figure out what type of work they are doing

Ex slalom here. Agree with google 1. S&O in each office varies greatly!! Ask a lot of questions on what work they actually do vs. what they aspire to do.

I worked at Slalom before. The saying is correct that Slalom is a good transition platform from B4 to some other co or vice versa. Many many folks who worked at Slalom eventually landed in PwC, IBM etc. It works fine for 1-2 years but if you stay longer then getting back into reality gets difficult. Personally I enjoyed my time at Slalom in pre Covid era when travel was a big deal. Now all companies are in the same situation. Doesn't matter if it is Slalom or EY. Also, well being is a priority in almost all the firms. Then why Slalom.

I moved firms a little over 3 months ago and have realized my new role is way too qualitative/pmo oriented and I prefer more quantitative work.

I’m worried about job hoping too quickly but also don’t want to lose my quantitative skill set and be blacklisted for roles that are a better fit.

Do you think it’s possible to work part time as a corporate associate? New mom, based in Boston, currently at an amlaw100 firm that is a big Boston firm. I’ve requested 80% but wondering if that’s really possible. Also in an ideal world (which probably does not exist…) I would love to work until 3 PM and be the kind of mom that picks up the kiddo from school for the daycare/preschool/elementary years). The trick is I actually like corporate work.

I know that if we require an employee to participate in any training that it must be paid. However, we want to give employees the opportunity to request voluntary training if they want to, for example, brush up on creating powerpoints or learn how to create effective sentences or how to deal with difficult people. If an employee requests voluntary training that could potentially make them a better employee, do we have to pay for it? Can we require that employees complete any voluntary training during their personal time?
