Principal has a few targets. Some revenue number. And people management. And you need to be hitting those targets before promotion. I don’t think the years matter. You’ve got to demonstrate you can do it. FWIW, Promotions at slalom are tough to come by, so come in at the highest level you can!

Thank you!

Varies by market. Ours has lots of SC’s with 10-15+ years of experiences. The youngest Principal in our office is probably 30 but that’s definitely the exception, most are older. It’s a lopsided, but I think it’s because principals have specific targets they need to reach. Might hurt us when recruiting though.

SCs not SC’s :-)

I have 6 years of experience but have been promoted rather quickly. I’d imagine this is only possible for internal employees since I had generated a lot of sales while a consultant.

No clear cutoff like SC1 mentioned. I think years of relevant consulting/sales/BD experience is key given P expectations. Have seen late 20s Ps but also folks with 10+ years of not-consulting experience get duped and brought in BELOW SC.

Yeah, I wonder with me@slalom formalizing if we will see people transition out if those cases quickly or what

Just feeling depressed….peers all made it to C and I got passed over because I burned out on a project. Then my LinkedIn is full of people getting into great b schools. And I’m just not getting interviews for positions I can do and keep having to battle around the “why didn’t you move up question?” I’m happy for my peers but I keep wondering when my time will come….

Applied to Deloitte for a SC position & was told by HR that I was aiming too high so she had me interview for a Consultant position instead. Received an offer, she asked what salary I wanted & I said $100k based off the averages I saw online, she quickly agreed. Today was my first day & I saw that in the system they have me as a SC which has an average of $120k so now I’m not sure if there’s an error or if I got finessed out of $20k 😭 is it worth it to ask HR about/any tips on how to go about it
