Got offers from Slalom (build) and Accenture Toronto. Compensation is almost the same, Accenture is a bit more. I heard Slalom does lot of cloud projects and Accenture lot of on-prem big data projects. Which one is better?

    Accenture because if somewhat technically proficient you will have ur pick of the litter of projects.

    Slalom culture is way better than Accenture today. Go for slalom..based on my first hand experience with both.

    biggest question is: do you want to get on a plane and be away from home every monday-Thursday. if so, go Accenture if not, go to slalom. I've worked at both.

    Slalom, if you can’t get a legitimate data job that is. Consulting firms barely do any data work

    Slalom has a much better culture but is a much more localized structure (harder to transfer). Accenture is way larger and you can more easily transfer market/teams if you have a good relationship with your partner

    Are you a SWE? Avoid both.
    People I know at slalom seem happy though.

    Sensitive here as I don't want to necessarily d0x myself... I don't work in the Toronto market but I've worked closely with the team there and some of the folks that setup the _build center. I will say that we do a lot, lot, lot of data work, the majority of it, especially in the build network, in the cloud (aws, gcp primarily).

      How much is the TC for SDE positions?

      There's not enough detail to answer this so "it depends." Build or market, consultant or engineer, architect, leader, tech, certs, geographic location, how urgent is the need for your skills?

    Go to Accenture. Slalom build is something that no one really knows how it is going to work. It just came out and the benefits here suck. Cloud projects are not exciting.

    Slalom for work life and no travel
    But Accenture for better training, better people (with business skills) and better exit options
