Weighing possible change to a different firm and wondering what thoughts are between RightPoint and Slalom. Specifically the culture, work-life balance and leadership.

Besides pay, I don’t understand what you could really dislike about WMP. And honestly, even pay is fine if you negotiate to higher end of your pay band and hit just a few travel bonuses

Agree wholeheartedly. After all the talk of I&D just look around at how many females or people of color in leadership roles that haven’t been there since the doors opened. Tired of the having to look, talk and act the same and highly judge mental culture.

FWIW, very happy at west Monroe the past 10+ years. Maybe could have gotten more $ elsewhere, but think the overall working conditions more than compensate, and the esop is turning out to be very lucrative. Have personally experienced many client environments plus interaction with competitors, and have not found a compelling reason to change.

WLB is relative. Is it better than Deloitte? Sure. Is it wayyyy worse than industry still? Yup. “Quality over growth” is the bigger heap of steaming slag. We are experiencing major growing pains and client delivery quality is all over the place. Shared services are much more consistent... but consistently underperforming. Frustrating how the PTO changes and comp restructuring were rolled out - good consultants can smell BS a mile away.

Do not go to RightPoint, don’t take my word for it. Ask Nick Carlson and Dan Adams, they used to work there and can give both perspectives.

I am kind of going in the opposite direction. Talking with WM now. Would you recommend it? For your question, I don’t know much about RP but Slalom has a good WLB since they mostly do local projects.

Hey WM OP - sorry to hear you’re considering leaving. Happy to talk through anything via DM if it helps. However, I also understand if you are considering leaving and have no judgement - this firm isn’t for everyone I will admit. M1 - Personally, I’d recommend WMP. Happy to talk further via DM. But again this is just my perspective.

But then your recruiter seems to be really low balling it. They need to understand the level alignment a little better. Perhaps some training?

Ahem - any ladies have tips and tricks for hair removal practices I came from a culture of waxing but that requires hair to fully grow + my hair grows pretty quickly so waiting for full growth for waxing is hard to work around (for legs, underarms, etc.). I tried shaving but my hair began showing in 1-2 days. In general though, not something my family struggles with in general, but I’m just hairier? I know this is a weird question, but looking for any tips and tricks!

2nd year associate here. Has anyone made a jump from a boutique firm to big law? I found out that I’m a front runner for a gig with an Amlaw 100. I never thought I’d have this chance having graduated from an unranked law school and still being so junior. Even though the firm asked if I’d be willing to start as a 1st year given my lack of litigation experience, it’s still a monumental upgrade/ jump. I’m nervous about the culture shock and whether I’ll cut it. Could really use some advice!
