Great company for a self-starter

Solutions Architect (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Slalom Consulting full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat culture and management listens to employees. Some fantastic co-workers. Have to be a go-getter and self-starter. As they have a mix of Management Consultants and Technical Consultants there is a lot of variety in the projects they get called in for.

ConsStill a lot of staff augmentation type work. Benefits still on the leaner side. Improving though.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't just focus on growth, but hiring the right people and focus on the long-term strategic vision to become a top-notch consulting company.

Great culture with strong focus on work life balance

Consultant (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Slalom Consulting full-time

ProsSlalom is fantastic if you are great at self promotion. The horizontal organizational structure requires you to find ways to differentiate yourself through things other than title. This is a huge 'Pro' depending on your personality and drive. The focus on people is also very, very real. Slalom recognizes us as their greatest asset and reminds everyone of this focus on a very regular basis. Great office events. Did I mention the people? The people are great.

ConsA majority of the client work is focused on roles that would otherwise be considered staff augmentation work. While I understand the importance of maintaining a semblance of the staff augmentation business model (for reasons of blending out variability in revenue, etc.), the associated work may not be what new hires are sold on.

Advice to Senior ManagementA vertical structure would not be the end of Slalom culture. In fact, creating more structure would better enable career growth and progression through the facilitation of a more formal development structure.

Amazing culture and meaningful work

Technology Consultant (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Slalom Consulting full-time for less than a year

Pros- Hyper smart people
- No politics
- Great work environment with a flat org
- I have a life after work
- Fun company sponsored activities.

Having moved from a dull and boring corporate job to Slalom I don't think I can ever go back. I learned so much more in the relatively short time I was here than my entire time at the previous job. Everyone here is excited to work with the latest technologies and do the job right instead of just average.

Cons- PTO is not as good as big companies, only 3 weeks of vacation and you have to accrue it.
- No Sick Days
- 401k match is mediocre
- Pay can vary a lot from person to person

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Chicago, IL

I have been working at Slalom Consulting full-time for more than a year

Prosgood salary, no relocations, lot of office parties

Consno relocation even though there is a better project in another city. Lot of mandatory office parties taking up your evening free time

Advice to Senior Managementput people in the roles they want to be. Don't make them work just because you couldn't find a better project
