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.

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.

I have been working at Slalom Consulting full-time for more than 3 yearsPros
The people are legitimately great. I really enjoy working alongside my peers, solutioning client challenges with my teams and leadership, and grabbing beers after work with pretty much anyone at the company. It's a fantastic blend of new challenges all the time, the ability to build and expand the brand, a great support system (front office / back office / national / local), and a company that knows how to have fun. Our projects are increasingly strategic, challenging, and valued by clients.I enjoy going to work. I enjoy hanging out with coworkers after work. It's a great place to be.Cons
Some of our legacy clients still view us as a Staff Augmentation firm and some of the "old guard" still think about our company that way too. This is changing, but it's a process.
Also, if you need a super rigid work structure, with a well defined career path (i.e. 12 months after an MBA you should expect X title, and 12 months after that you should expect Y title), you might be disappointed. Our company is growing, it's fluid and dynamic, and that may not be comfortable for everyone.Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Application Details
I applied online - interviewed at Slalom Consulting.Interview Details
The interview process was quite long but they like to keep interviews on the more relaxed side. I started out by having coffee with one of the recruiters, who went over my work history, desire to leave and skills. Having passed that, I had lunch with someone fairly senior in my practice area about 3 weeks later. After that, another 2-3 weeks passed and I was called into the office for an interview with the practice area lead I would be working under. During this interview, I went into detail about my past projects and skills. Finally, I was called in to speak with the Managing Director of the office for a final yes/no.
The interview process is aimed to make you feel more at ease and comfortable talking to your interviewers.Interview Questions
