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 Management

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.

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

    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 Management

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


  2. Very positive and easy experience

    Pros

    The placers at slalom, xversity, or 2 degrees are excellent at what they do. They are very informative and make the experince very enjoyable.

    Cons

    The only con that i could think of is for people with less experience just entering into the work force could use some better options.

    Advice to Management

    I think they could create another division for people that are just getting out of college looking for jobs.
