I worked at Slalom Consulting full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Local model guarantees evenings at home with family. High quality workforce, mostly sourced from the likes of Accenture, Deloitte etc.

Cons

Very monocultural - the entire company seems to be populated by suburban Big 4 types. Born in a suburb, went to a major sports college, started at a large firm, lived in the city for a while, met a girl, moved back to the suburb they were born in, had kids, wife told them their traveling days were over, quit the large firm, started at Slalom. It's fine if that's your thing...

    I worked at Slalom Consulting as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, projects and resources.

    Cons

    Slalom did not fulfill on their recruiting "sales pitch". I felt like they using their recruits as practice for their sales pitch to clients. I had four years big 4 consulting experience and left my former business analyst role to join their team. Yet I sat on the bench for 2 months and eventually left.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit responsibly and competently.

    I have been working at Slalom Consulting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing, talented colleagues. Opportunities to do challenging work that matches my talents and interest areas. Encouraged to grow, develop and creatively contribute. Good work life balance. Fair compensation. Fun, innovative culture. Good accessiblity to company leaders.

    Cons

    I can't think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Company could improve communications and use of collaborative tools. We have the tools but not everyone knows about them or uses them. Sometimes we are so focused on our clients' needs that we overlook our own. We could benefit from better integration across our service areas.
