Why is everyone applying to Slalom Consulting? Is it because of good WLB? I heard their work is mostly staff aug

Ex Slalom employee here. It really isn’t as staff aug heavy as you might think. Yes, like all consulting firms a good portion of their work is staff aug. But while I was there I never worked on a single staff aug project. the people are some of the most genuine I’ve ever worked with. Hours are better than B4 but the more senior you get the more comparable they are. Leadership is meh but if you want to work with kind and hard working folks with a better wlb you should consider it. It is a tech consulting firm so if you have an accounting / finance background you likely will be doing staff aug work. If you have an analytics or software engineering background you will work on some really cool projects. People at Slalom drink the koolaid way too much, so keep that in mind.

Got it, thanks for the detailed response! I hear you on the pay vs. hours equation... I left consulting for a job that pays 20% less, but I also work about 20% less and so far it's been worth it. Just need to keep the decent WLB going!

Apart from other answers, they also pay really well in UK. Much more than Big4/ACN S&C.

I currently work at a very ”hyped” food delivery tech company. I’ve been there for 1,5 years now, but the pay is low, bad company culture and I don’t feel appreciated for the work I do. So i’m overall not to happy there, and looking for a new job. However every interview I’ve had so far ask why I want to leave such a ”great” company after less than 2 years? I don’t want to shittalk my job but it’s really makes me feel like i should stay another 6m just so I don’t look bad. What would you do?

Recruiter from Amazon reached out for a phone screen for a L7 role st Amazon - Principal Product Manager, Technical. I'm a first year M and have been in consulting mostly. I do have the technical expertise the role requires but no product management experience per se. Think L7 at Amazon for me is a reach. My concern is if I interview and fail, I will be barred from interviewing from another role for 6 to 12 months. Should I give it a shot or save my chance for something more realistic (e.g. L6)?
