I have been working at Slalom Consulting full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The overall engagement of the office is amazing. We really do live the core values, starting with "do what's right, always" and ending with "Smile". A very unique approach to people management and empowerment.

Cons

It's not for everyone, if you require massive amounts of structure and hand-holding, this may be harder for you. Not sure that's a con, just an observation.

Advice to Management

Keep it up, not sure how you do it, but keep it up.

    Pros

    Great culture, very inclusive. Everyone is encouraged to get involved in areas they are most passionate about. In my two years with Slalom I've grown significantly, both personally and professionally.

    Cons

    As with any growing business, we're not perfect. However, I really appreciate the feedback driven approach our leaders take to implement change. I know I have voice here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in our people, clients, and communities. Empower everyone, from our newest hires to our leaders, to get involved. Recognize that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. That's what makes this place special.

    Weak & Insecure Leadership Team

    Pros

    It's like Grad School for Accenture rejects, who could not advance in Accenture's hierarchy. Think about that... do you want to join another Accenture? Consultants overall are not as skilled as advertised. Business Intelligence team is extremely weak, almost unable to staff. We are still unable to staff technical resources on my project, so most consultants are on an island by themselves - taking all the heat from the client. Little to no support from the weak management structure.

    Cons

    Weak & insecure leadership team. Leadership team blames anyone but themselves, so be careful of this type of environment. There is no clear view into pipeline and projects, nor project alignment to skill sets. Management team - I've never worked any place where they are this insecure and closed off. No vacation - any time off is taken from pay (doctor, sick time, family emergencies, etc.). Awful. Relatively low pay considering model. Beware of variable model of pay, as bench time will lead to half pay and/or termination. 4-7% bonuses on average. No pay raises. Do you want to earn $40-50 an hour, have little to no chance at advancement and continually clean up after other weak consultants? My advice - you deserve more than Slalom. Don't believe the hype.

    Advice to Management

    Need new management / leadership team. Denver office is weak compared to other geographic locations. Quit trying to be Accenture, align consultant skills with project needs. Be more humble. The air of conceit is very off-putting and undeserved.
