    An anonymous blog post from a Slalom employee:

    Blog - Work-life balance

    Most companies have a set of core values, though it's not always clear how those values are demonstrated day to day. I confess: as an employee, I've sometimes thought, "Oh those are nice," but I don't have a real expectation that my company embodies or stands behind a particular value.

Slalom Consulting – Why Work For Us?

What makes us unique?

Slalom Consulting brings business and technology expertise together to help companies drive enterprise performance, accelerate innovation, enhance the customer experience, and increase employee productivity.

We are the consulting firm with a national network of local offices. Slalom consultants are locally-based, handpicked experts that form a national community delivering powerful technology and business innovations.

How does it work?
Every Slalom consultant can reach out to other Slalom experts who are ready to help–from across the hall to other Slalom offices, and through national specialized teams. Through this model, we share knowledge, ideas, and tools to solve client challenges and help develop our future products and services.

How did this start?
We invented it. While there are many local national consulting firms, we pioneered the national network of local offices model.

Our clients like us. We work with interesting and diverse clients, from global leaders to emerging companies, who are doing amazing things. We help them innovate and take advantage of new opportunities. We are flexible, easy to work with, and focused on solving problems—not selling.

Slalom believes everyone can win. Fulfilled employees thrive personally and professionally. Satisfied clients and partners spread the word. The company grows and invests in people, technology, and services.

People love working here

Founded in 2001, Slalom has rapidly grown to more than 1,300 consultants across 11 North American offices. Slalom is a great place to grow and learn personally and professionally, celebrating hard work and success together through events for the whole company and our families. We are consistently rated by national publications as one of the best consulting firms to work for.

Slalom consultants choose their own career paths. From training and mentorship to career development tools and sabbaticals, we give our people choices that enable them to take on new challenges with the autonomy to make the right choices for their clients.

Our talent works alongside some of the best and brightest in the industry, on the most strategic initiatives for Fortune 1000 companies. Our local model allows consultants to build long-term relationships with world-class companies in their own communities, eliminating unwanted travel and providing the possibility to innovate, seize opportunities, and build their expertise in exciting new practice areas. As a private company, we answer to only two constituencies: our clients, and ourselves.

If this sounds like a place where you would thrive, we would love to hear from you – recruiting@slalom.com.

WORKING FOR A BETTER WORLD

Slalom has repeatedly earned recognition not only for consulting excellence, but also for our community involvement. We believe that life is more fulfilling when you give back.

We live and work in the same communities as our clients, fostering a local connection. We also strengthen our communities through volunteering, service, and by supporting charities and people who are committed to making a positive impact.

Every year Slalom sponsors–and our consultants participate, help organize, and even create–charity events and fundraising activities through each one of our office locations. As an organization, and as individuals, Slalom is committed to the communities where we work and live, and making a positive impact on the world.

    Pros

    Probably the most generous company I've ever worked for. This is one of the great perks of working for a company that is privately held and truly cares about it's people. The company culture is fantastic, there are honestly so many people here that I would be friends with outside of work, so the people are amazing. There are always team building events happening which brings the group together (even more important in a consulting firm where everyone is typically spread out at clients).

    Cons

    There are a few who have been promoted into leadership (CSL, BDE) that have you scratching your head as to why they were put in those positions to begin with. But the other senior leaders are pretty much great people both in LA and OC.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow but be careful that the people you are promoting into sales oriented leadership roles will actually SELL something. I think a little accountability would be great in this area.
