Disapproves of CEO

Pros

- Flexibility
- Some variety in the work
- Network development

Cons

- Lack of substance on being "consultant focused"
- Managers are time approvers and focused on filling staffing opps, little more
- Poor career path or advancement opportunities. The overly hyped "Career Development Framework" is poorly supported and barely used
- Installed base of leadership are a clique
- Work/life balance is a joke
- Totally reliant on a small group of big clients - be prepared for "wash, rinse, repeat" from engagement to engagement
- PTO is poor - leaders are always "looking at it" and never doing anything about it
- No tolerance for differing points of view or those who don't drink the leadership kool aid - assimilate or leave
- Shark tank attitude between incompetent sales team and customer account mgrs to land any role and get a warm body on it
- They market the life out of the "best place to work" surveys that aren't really credible
- Absence of "straight talk" internally, typical Seattle "fake nice"
- Obsession with national growth and driving revenue for the owner with little opportunity for others to share in the success or maturing Slalom's practices
- Slalom's spin on non-profit "contributions" are limited to employees doing things on their own time with no real investment from Slalom

Advice to Management

Slalom needs to stop pretending it's something that it's not. Management needs to back-up their words with tangible actions.

    Pros

    The placers at slalom, xversity, or 2 degrees are excellent at what they do. They are very informative and make the experince very enjoyable.

    Cons

    The only con that i could think of is for people with less experience just entering into the work force could use some better options.

    Advice to Management

    I think they could create another division for people that are just getting out of college looking for jobs.

    Pros

    Slalom's business model is to have local consultants for local clients, which means no travel. It is good for those who have a family and want to see them every evening. Slalom pays competitively.

    Cons

    Management is very Accenturic! A little arrogance in senior management. Senior management analyzes everything too much and it makes some employees uncomfortable.
