Thoughts on Patterson Belknap? What are the hours like? I know their requirement is ~2100 hours but imagine the predictability (or lack thereof) can’t be as bad as biglaw.

Do laterals make you look like you failed to get a promotion? I’m up for promotion, have a great story and strong performance; a good opportunity to lateral came up at a much better firm - but promotions are so random and shrouded in secrecy at my company that I kinda want to join a better firm while I can.

Slalom Consulting people, what’s the difference between Business Analyst vs. consultant level roles at Slalom? The consultant and business analyst roles both ask for 2+ YOE and have a similar pay range on the job descriptions. I recently hit my 2 year mark at Accenture and am wanting to continue doing consultant-type work, but am worried about taking an analyst level role (if it’s similar to entry-level) as I would be getting consultant this year if I were to stay at Accenture. Any advice?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
