Slalom – Why Work With Us?


 

The year was 2001. Wikipedia launched. Apple released the iPod. The Agile Manifesto began a new era for software development. And the meeting of Brad Jackson, our CEO, and John Tobin led to something new for the consulting industry.

Slalom got its start by attracting the brightest lights in consulting to the promise of no unwanted travel. Instead of a grueling, up-or-out career, we gave people the opportunity to love both their work and their lives. We believed that what was good for our people would be great for our clients. And we were right.

Today, Slalom is a $1B company with over 5,000 employees, and we’re regularly recognized as a best place to work. Our clients include more than half the Fortune 100 and a third of the Fortune 500—along with startups, non-profits, and innovative organizations of all kinds.

 

People love working here

Our people work are some of the best and brightest in their industries and work on some of the most strategic initiatives for Fortune 1000 companies. Our local model allows consultants to build long-term relationships with world-class companies in their own communities, eliminating unwanted travel and providing the possibility to innovate, seize opportunities, and build their expertise in exciting new practice areas. As a private company, we answer to only two constituencies: our clients, and ourselves.

Giving back to the communities in which we live and work

Slalom has repeatedly earned recognition not only for consulting excellence, but also for our community involvement. We believe that life is more fulfilling when you give back.

We live and work in the same communities as our clients, fostering a local connection. We also strengthen our communities through volunteering, service, and by supporting charities and people who are committed to making a positive impact. We are committed to the communities where we work and live, and making a positive impact on the world.

Inclusion and diversity

A diverse, inclusive culture is critical to our future success. At Slalom, we’re committed to embracing different thoughts, opinions, and people. It doesn’t just benefit our teams—it also translates into better outcomes for our clients.

Diversity the Slalom way

We want our people to bring their authentic selves to work.

Here, diversity is much more than numeric representation. It’s the daily inclusive dialogue, breadth of perspective, and participatory decision-making. From taking action and nurturing an open, collaborative work environment, to seeking more diverse representation in leadership, inclusion is embedded in the DNA of our culture and in the way we do business.


GLASS

Slalom Veterans

Slalom Veterans—an affinity group for Slalom employees who have served in the Armed Forces—was created to foster the diverse experience and backgrounds of our veteran community. Its mission is to ensure that veterans at Slalom are recognized and empowered by a program that helps engage, educate, recruit, and retain veterans within the company, and to extend that to our local markets by engaging with the veteran community in a meaningful way. More details: https://www.slalom.com/about/inclusion-and-diversity 

Women’s Leadership Network

Our Women's Leadership Network (WLN) embodies the values and focus we want to espouse as a company and within our organization. WLN’s mission—to engage, inspire, and encourage every Slalom woman to achieve her full and unique potential—provides the foundation for a strong focus on personal and professional growth.

Inclusion councils

Our local councils, which help oversee Slalom’s inclusion and diversity practices, support our leaders as they drive the diversity agenda, and play an active role in assessing inclusion and diversity issues, setting strategic direction, and prioritizing our actions, both locally and nationally. Representatives of the collective voice of all Slalom employees, members of each local council serve as business advisors who encourage behavior and decisions that foster a diverse, inclusive, and authentic workplace for all.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Slalom (Washington, DC) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Slalom's interview process was one of the best I have ever experienced. I did not feel like they were just trying to fill a position with just anyone. Slalom is looking for people who will fit well with their culture as well as individuals who are determined to grow their careers. Throughout the entire process everyone including the recruiter, senior level employees, and hiring managers made sure to get to know the type of designer and person I am from asking my short and long term personal and professional goals.

    The process took about a month including application, recruiter screening, two phone interviews, and one in person interview with three senior level employees. Each interview was very conversational, but also there were some technical design questions here and there, which is to be expected when interviewing for any design role.
