What do people think of Slalom?

Had a friend who left Deloitte to join Slalom. Left after 2 months. Said it was the worst decision she ever made. Definitely pay more and recruiting hard now. But much more staff aug.

Probably high, friend got offered 130 in GA for post MBA, I was told its higher in NYC. So I imagine manager is ~160?

So. Given that I just switched from EY to Slalom I'll give you some insight for NYC. It's not staff aug in this market. They won't take a project if it is staff aug. They're not as established as the big 4, but clients see us as a strategic partner since we don't carry the bs and frills some larger firms will have. Personally, I love it since I now have a life and am not working a million hours a week while doing meaningful work.

Thanks for the insight @S1

Think it's a decent consulting firm

Mostly seem to be staff augmentation rather than strategic consulting. I wanted to like them but have only had bad experiences working side by side thus far on two occasions.

They seem to be recruiting well, they jus made fortune 100 list for best companies to work for, all local projects and seem to pay well. No idea on the type of projects tho

I've heard they are aggressively trying to grow in many markets and are moving beyond staff aug

Anyone know what comp is roughly for manager equivalent?

Surprisingly competitive/high. If it was less staff-aug it might be a consideration. Will be interesting to see where they go over the next year or two.

^yeah they have good traction for sure. I feel like in 10 years or so, they'll have a big name for themselves.

Staff aug for ppl who couldn't hack it in real consulting.

Downhill is better

Let's see how this goes. Could be a new chapter

@S1 what is the equivalent of a big 4 SR Con at Slalom

Like I commented in a previous post, they got some busted ass looking people

Flat org structure so no real levels. That being said, sales is rewarded heavily and they'll raise you up accordingly (in $ and responsibility).

Why is everyone so bothered by staff aug? I managed multiple tech projects at ACN and whether you knew it or not, majority of their roles were also staff augs but wasn't labeled that way.

^usually after the design/consulting/recommendations/implementation process, u move into staff aug until they hire their own people. I think it's great if it interests u...beats creating decks and presentations on what u plan to do forever.

Me & my roommate had a great outdoor area (terrace of about 200/300 square feet) in Brooklyn. However, it’s all stone pavers & I’m trying to figure out the best way to add some green/plants plus add additional privacy between the common & private space. Selfishly, my window looks out to all the air conditioning units so hoping for something with a little height.

Any recs for plants (either aesthetic or practical), planters, outdoor furniture that isn’t stupid expensive & won’t immediately die?
