    Pros

    While you still feel the competitive spirit of working with smart, capable people, the constant pressure to outperform peers and "move up" is nowhere near the levels of the traditional consulting model. The flat organization structure allows people of different backgrounds and experience levels to truly develop and learn through stretch roles instead of being shoe-horned into roles based on title or service line.... Slalom's org structure and ATL leadership allow you to carve your own path. While the responsibility is on you to decide how you buy into the culture, learn and develop, and ultimately move up in the organization, that freedom allows you to feel a sense of ownership in your career, rather than simply being told what to do to move up to the next rung. People are happy at work. In my experience, teams at Slalom are built on trust, which allows them to flex to fit team members' needs and make progress rather than teammates constantly feeling the need to talk about how "busy" they are. This leads to better work/life balance and greater day-to-day enjoyment of the work.

    Cons

    Processes like performance management and staffing are constantly changing, which leads to a lack of buy in of the new processes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be flexible and listen to the growing organization. Changing culture is not a bad thing.

    Pros

    Slalom really depends on its values and keeps them at the focus of their daily business. They have nice offices and are continuing to grow. The interview process is really one of the best processes I had and everyone so far has been just as kind and helpful as day one.

    Cons

    Snacks and drinks are so popular they aren't always well stocked! Not the worst thing in the world. Really have to negotiate a fair salary but they will budge after presenting an offer. It is slightly offensive that you can be told a number during the interview process then be offered a number 10-20k less than discussed.
