Banking vs. consulting. - Which is really best?

Investment banking and strategy consulting are like avocados and quinoa: both attract the elite (or, in the words of one ex-McKinsey director, “insecure, deeply left-brain, hyper-intellectual, OCD over-achievers.”). Both pay well. Both involve some serious commitments of your time and some heavy academic achievements.

Global consulting firm Slalom opens Manchester office

Global consulting firm Slalom has chosen Manchester as the location for its second UK office.

Partnering with over 200 solution providers including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, Salesforce, Microsoft, and Tableau, Slalom helps companies tackle ambitious projects and build new capabilities.

Slalom opened its first UK office in London in 2014.

“Manchester is a city of digital enterprise with strengths in a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, healthcare, utilities, and consumer services; which perfectly complements Slalom’s breadth of expertise,” said Dave Williams, Slalom UK Country Managing Director. “We’re looking forward to helping our clients solve their biggest challenges while we also invest in the local community.”

Based at Peter House, the Slalom Manchester office is looking to tap into the city’s talent pool as well as invest in the development of its existing team members to grow its UK reputation. The firm plans to employ over 200 people in Manchester by 2025.

“Greater Manchester is a hotbed for collaboration and innovation, making it the ideal location for pioneering businesses like Slalom,” said Tim Newns, Chief Executive of MIDAS, Manchester’s inward investment agency.

“There are strong complementarities between Slalom and Greater Manchester’s efforts to collaborate with companies going through digital transformation and supporting them to grow within the region. Establishing operations within one of Europe’s largest digital and technology clusters will provide the consulting firm with ample opportunities to join forces with the rapidly increasing number of world-leading brands that are choosing Manchester.”

Slalom Managing Director Paul Squire, who will move from the London office to head up operations in Manchester, said, “I’m excited about working with our clients in the North West of England, helping them deliver people-centric change, bring strategic solutions to life, and ultimately, love their future.”

Founded in 2001 and headquartered in Seattle, Slalom has grown to over 6,500 employees.

The New Hiring Practices At McKinsey And Goldman Sachs

Accepting a job is like a legal marriage. You can usually leave at any time, but the associated costs can really add up. Job switching costs for an employee, both in time and money, are high. Firing, for a firm, is equally expensive. There’s the severance cost, the training costs, the cost of the burden placed on existing employees who have to temporarily pick up the slack. And in countries with rigid employee protection regulation, firing costs easily skyrocket.
