ZS vs. Slalom? Money is very similar for roles at both with focus on LS compliance so just asking for a sense of culture and WLB

Comp grows faster at ZS, but WLB will not be as good

ZS has better exit opps than slalom in my opinion

LS compliance? Did you get recruited for a specific practice area, cause compliance is definitely not a ZS niche.

Yes, sounds like an area they’re trying to build out

Interesting that the comps are similar. Slalom gave me the impression that the employees are mostly ex-consultants who took a pay cut so they can focus on families. If you want more work life balance, go to Slalom. If you want more money, go to ZS.

Currently talking to recruiters for a new job and it is honestly such a turnoff when they talk too much about having a strong company culture and/or talking about making sure I'm a good fit culturally. For me that borders on culty and is a red flag. I would much rather hear from a recruiter that a workplace's "culture" is that they are accepting of all cultures, diversity, and personality types.
