I have been working at Slalom Consulting full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The overall engagement of the office is amazing. We really do live the core values, starting with "do what's right, always" and ending with "Smile". A very unique approach to people management and empowerment.

Cons

It's not for everyone, if you require massive amounts of structure and hand-holding, this may be harder for you. Not sure that's a con, just an observation.

Advice to Management

Keep it up, not sure how you do it, but keep it up.

    Pros

    The company is doing a lot of great things, great culture & community if you choose to get involved, positive future with quick expansion, and has good "intention" to do right by their people and clients.

    Cons

    * PTO is limited (sub par to consulting industry 18 days vs. 25+ days)
    * No stock options (RSU or ESPP)
    * Bonus is below industry (between 5-10%)
    * Below industry standard for 401K match about 50% less than standard
    * Base pay is average but if considering the entire package, then it's below industry standard
    * Starting to hire lots of junior and non-consulting people, which makes it hard for team lead to deliver to clients on a consulting standard
    * Not trying hard enough to keep the good people to stay
    * Senior management sometimes will do/say anything to sell a project and staff their projects including some misleading or (not specified) expectations or take into account what the team members want
    * There's an impression of mis-trust between management and everyone else for reason listed above

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your middle manager(s) are practicing the values that you preach on a consistent level.

    Pros

    The people are amazing! And the local model is refreshing!

    Cons

    It's not for people who aren't comfortable with challenging themselves with new/different opportunities or those who require a step-by-step guide on consulting. Experience is key.
