Pros

Great atmosphere and culture (read that as super friendly coworkers with many social events) with key leadership that really inspires.

If you enjoy consulting, but hate the Mon~Thurs travel, Slalom has a great local model that seems to work.

Cons

Client work: unless you have cutting-edge skill-sets, your work will most likely be of the staff-aug variety.

Career progression: slalom worked hard to develop a "career development framework", but it seemed to obfuscate career progressions more than streamline potential leaders to management. Definitely a who-you-know kind of environment where playing nice with the in-crowd gets you quick rewards.

Compensation: average comp with minimal bonuses

Advice to Management

Find a better way to identify leaders other than having them jump through endless assessment hoops.

    Pros

    Despite the issues that some may have with pay/compensation/expectations, I have never felt that my opinions or concerns went unheard. There has always been opportunity to provide feedback, discuss my career goals/objectives, or voice issues.

    Cons

    - Based on the results here on Glassdoor and stories of others in the market, I fear I may be underpaid in base salary. Knowing that I am being compared to market competition would be beneficial.

    - The company is growing larger at a fast pace, especially in Chicago, so I fear that our culture and objectives will change and start to resemble those of former employers

    The people are very well balanced. Work hard, pleay hard mentality.
    Slalom puts their people first.
    Great benefits.
    Amazing resources and support.

    Cons

    More PTO would be nice, but you can't complain too much when all the other areas are so well taken cared of.
