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.
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.
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.
Attracting, retaining, supporting, and advancing the careers and lives of our LGBT and allied employees matters to us. Our GLASS (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender & Allied Employees Succeeding at Slalom) program supports this community throughout their careers at Slalom through professional development, networking, and community events.

We recently launched REACH, a black affinity group. The group exists to build awareness, attract and retain top talent, and expand relationships for the betterment of Slalom, our people, and our black community. More details: https://www.slalom.com/about/inclusion-and-diversity
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
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.
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.
We're an equal opportunity employer, and strive to find ways to attract, develop, and retain highly qualified individuals representing the diverse communities in which we live. Decisions and criteria concerning the employment relationship with all employees are made in a non-discriminatory manner, without regard to race, color, creed, religion, gender, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran’s status, citizenship, disability (as defined by applicable law) or any other characteristic protected by law.
I have been working at Slalom full-time (Less than a year)
Having worked at Slalom London for almost 3 years, I'm still amazed at the quality of work, amazing clients, brilliant people and superb company culture. The work is always interesting and career development is given priority, including certifications and conferences. The work/life balance is definitely the best I've experienced. The compensation and benefits are competitive also.
Given the continued company growth and outlook for the future, I'm excited to be part of Slalom.
We've managed to grow so fast that we're at capacity in our current office space, meaning we've had to conjure up some creative ways of working. This is due to be addressed in due course, but I guess thats a good problem to have!

3rd Interview ~30 minutes: Met with Boston General Manager, was asked a few questions
Final discussion with Recruiter about next steps - They wanted to move forward, but needed to wait on an offer until the new year started.
