I have been working at Slalom full-time (Less than a year)
It is such a pleasure to work around so many intelligent, hardworking people who still maintain a focus on being inclusive and friendly. In my time at the company I have experienced a number of helpful trainings and encountered so many people who are willing to help when you ask. Great office location as well. The leaders work very hard to make sure that the work we do is interesting and fulfilling to their teams as well.
Not many. The company pays a lot of attention to the individual and where they want to work and what they want to learn.
Advice to Management
Feedback, feedback, feedback. As a leader it can be easy to forget that feeling of just wanted more time with your manager to learn and develop.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Slalom (Palo Alto, CA) in October 2016.
Initial communications with recruiting was stellar. Open and forthcoming about the company, how they want to do business, and what their plans are for the future. Recruiter set up the first on-site interview with himself and another senior designer. On the day of the interview, the designer cancelled a couple of hours prior to the meeting. I took the day off so I met with the recruiter and got lots of people info about the company. The recruiter set up another interview a couple of weeks later with the design manager and the same designer that cancelled the first time. Neither of them showed up to office for the interview. The designer called into the interview. I didn't speak with the design manager at all. Two days of PTO down the drain because they couldn't be bothered to look at my portfolio before the scheduled meeting.
