Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Seattle, WA

Pros

Variety of clients to potentially be engaged with
Roles can also vary from project to project
As consultants, you can provide guidance to your managers as to your career path and/or interests
Lots of Company hosted functions that are always optional (e.g. Happy Hour Events, Quarterly Meetings, Company-wide funded weekend retreat to wonderful/local destinations, Holiday Parties, etc...on and on...)

Cons

It's important to be part of a team and/or have people know about your skillsets. If you're relatively new and somewhat shy, it can be hard to be recognized. You must take it upon yourself to go out and contribute to your personal/professional growth and network, network, network...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The benefits are ok. Would love to have the company provide for better 401k matches - the current rate is relatively poor in comparison to other companies.

    Pros

    Interesting culture, friendly people, sometimes exciting work.

    Cons

    Poor / lack of management, less than average benifits & PTO, left out of company events and rewards, short staffing basic services means more work for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting like a little comapany jumping over dollars to pick up dimes at staffs expense. Pay bills on time, honor your word.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Work on improving quality and complexity of client opportunities.
    - Better showcase Slalom capabilities to clients beyond basic staff augmentation roles.
    - Perception that the founders/exec team have lost sight of why they founded the company in the first place.
    - Lack of financial rewards being shared throughout the organization, rewards are disproportionately distributed.
