They pay really well.
They have very supportive internal staff (for IT issues, HR issues, etc.).
They have some really fun company events (annual retreats, quarterlies, etc.).

There is no accountability and very little honesty.
They have ridiculously bad middle/upper management.
They are very political and slow to act.
They write horrible SOW's which come back and bite the consultants.

    "They don't walk the walk about work life balance. Middle management is largely inexperienced and need improvement."

    Pros

    Peers are competent. Slalom works hard to provide opportunities to socialize with co-workers.

    Cons

    Slalom doesn't support employees. You are a billable resource and nothing more--regardless of Slalom's significant efforts to move up the ranks in "best place to work" polls like this.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training middle managers or promoting people who have actually done it before. provide more than twoo weeks total vacation and sick time.

    Pros

    Local model that prevents the need to travel, but has the option to do so if desired. Slalom is growing rapidly and looking for feedback on how best to do so. Employees are very bright and the screening process is very stringent with a strong focus on cultural fit.

    Cons

    Lacks the benefits package of a Fortune 50 company, but I have faith that the winning model will get there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up and don't lose sight of the vision. Listen to your employees and grow the services offered through innovation.
