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

Pros

The culture here is amazing! Working across teams, with leaders, with peers is so easy - everyone takes Slalom's values very seriously and you can see it in each project. I've never worked anywhere else that has so many people that really strive to do the right thing always. It makes it easy to come to work with a smile, and makes taking on big/scary initiatives and projects more fun because you know you'll have great support along the way.

Cons

Slalom is still developing infrastructure in some key areas. There are a few tools/processes that make it feel a lot like a start up - but that also means that the right person in the right role can make a big impact by coming up with solutions to areas that haven't been "fixed" yet. BUT - patience and flexibility/adaptability are key. Some materials/development opportunities feel limited for Corp. Services/non-billable employees, but even that is getting better (I've seen big improvements over the past two years).

Advice to Management

Keep it UP. There are SO many great reasons why so many of us are #SlalomProud.

    Smart co-workers, variety of work, commitment to employees

    Cons

    Relentless drive for growth can lead to not-so-great projects. atmosphere can feel a little cliquey. Getting promoted from within can be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within.
