Will Slalom ever do covid layoffs?

We’ve gotten this far through the COVID crisis without laying anyone off, and I have zero reason to expect that’ll change anytime soon. @OP, I take some offense that it’s because we “don’t have the balls” to impact our rating on Glassdoor. You might instead say that we have the conviction to actually practice what we preach; the first core value is, “Do what is right, always.” And we’re doing what’s right. The office manager hired in my office two weeks before the COVID shutdown is still on staff. Their role has shifted, but we committed that they’d have a professional home, and we’re keeping that promise.

Since we have abandoned that ideal with the demonstrable conduct of the layoffs...will consider slalom for future moves. Thanks!

I feel like they don’t have the balls to do it to so they don’t tamper their “best place to work” branding

Sorry specifically meant the Glassdoor ranking of Best Places to Work that Slalom got last year.

No company can afford to hold onto a bench indefinitely... I will say Slalom has a strong bias to avoid layoffs as much as possible. Saw this first hand in NY when a large client suddenly ran into financial difficulties and cancelled all work. Something like 50 people hit the bench at once and all were eventually redeployed on other projects

Yup saw that same situation happen down in a TX market.

Why? In Chicago we had a dip starting in April, but we've seen a rebound to the point that certain practices no longer have a bench. Certain departments are going to start hiring. Why would slalom have to consider layoffs now?

I'm avoiding gyms due to covid, so I'm only working with my weights and bench, but I'm having issues with butt workouts.

Happy 2021 everyone!! If you stayed in town over the holidays and assuming no work, what did y'all end up doing in the last week?

I have been to several lakes and trails over my 3 years here but found them underwhelming. Arbor Hills Preserve is probably the only decent place. Suggestions? TIA

I got a verbal offer from one of big 4 and the 💰 is decent. Here is my hesitation : I want to go truly because I want to grow to be a leader. I am a Sr. DS, specialize in financial risk analytics.
