I have been working at Slalom Consulting

Pros

- Fantastic, experienced, smart people to work with (no junior consultants!)
- Lots of opportunities to help grow the business - both internally and externally (sales)
- Super friendly culture with lots of social events
- Low key, laid-back attitude balanced with high standards of delivery
- Great facilities for such a small company
- Highly flexible work environment - you can really live the consulting lifestyle here!
- No travel unless you want to
- Great salary and vacation
- Very hands-off management, because they only hire senior consultants they trust you to do your job, manage your client, and work with your team

Cons

- Small market limits type of work and clients, which means sometimes you just have to do what you have to do!
- No junior consultants means you have to do all the dirty work too :)
- Benefits package is mediocre at best, I'm paying a lot more out of pocket
- Flexibility comes with risk - if you're on the bench you only get paid 50% of your salary
- Because it is a growing, small company - bad infrastructure (slow network, no knowledge management, very little process in place)
- Just starting to define career paths - very little career management in place so you really have to find your own way

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- A more robust process around the biz dev pipeline that leverages people who want to help could result in a more stable pipeline and improved account management
- Need some more focus on building expert communities and intellectual capital that can be shared across the nation

    Pros

    Good reputation. Some smart folks with lots of experience.

    Cons

    Not sure how on earth they got their good reputation! Poor management at a the consulting level. This firm is really a staff aug firm that diguises themselves as a solutions firm. Very disappointing experience if you are a seasoned consultant. Very territorial behavior by all and very cliquy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie to folks during the interview process. Be clear of job role, type of work and the fact that you will to keep yourself billable.

    Pros

    The culture and the events set this company apart from the rest. The talent level at this company is very high and I hope it stays that way with all the growth.

    Cons

    Less PTO then other companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase PTO and maintain high talent levels with hires but otherwise doing a great job.
