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 (more than 3 years)Pros
As a career consultant this is the first company I've worked at where I can see, feel, and know that everything I do (i) impacts my clients, (ii) impacts my company & practice, and (iii) allows me to truly own my career.Cons
There is a healthy tension that exists between "local market direction" and "national structure/strategy". This can result in different markets pursuing the achievement of larger strategy in different ways. For people who want a highly structured environment - this creates a bit of uncertainty.Advice to ManagementAdvice

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Slalom Consulting.Interview Details
Process is a bit lengthy and spread out over many days. Expect to speak with 4-5 different people all the way up to senior leadership before getting an offer. Most of the conversations are very casual and they seem to be looking as much for cultural fit as for technical skills or subject area knowledge.Interview Questions
