Body shop with little concern for quality overly focused on staffing any role with no internal career path

Consultant Lacky (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

Pros- Flexibility
- Some variety in the work
- Network development

Cons- Lack of substance on being "consultant focused"
- Managers are time approvers and focused on filling staffing opps, little more
- Poor career path or advancement opportunities. The overly hyped "Career Development Framework" is poorly supported and barely used
- Installed base of leadership are a clique
- Work/life balance is a joke
- Totally reliant on a small group of big clients - be prepared for "wash, rinse, repeat" from engagement to engagement
- PTO is poor - leaders are always "looking at it" and never doing anything about it
- No tolerance for differing points of view or those who don't drink the leadership kool aid - assimilate or leave
- Shark tank attitude between incompetent sales team and customer account mgrs to land any role and get a warm body on it
- They market the life out of the "best place to work" surveys that aren't really credible
- Absence of "straight talk" internally, typical Seattle "fake nice"
- Obsession with national growth and driving revenue for the owner with little opportunity for others to share in the success or maturing Slalom's practices
- Slalom's spin on non-profit "contributions" are limited to employees doing things on their own time with no real investment from Slalom

Advice to Senior ManagementSlalom needs to stop pretending it's something that it's not. Management needs to back-up their words with tangible actions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
