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

Pros

* People are sharp, humble, and fun to work with!
* Company is continuing to grow very quickly, so a lot of new faces
* Strong leadership team that has everyone pointed in the right direction
* A true meritocracy...people are rewarded for their achievements rather than tenure

Cons

* A lot of hours...the work is enjoyable, because you're contributing to the firm's growth, but it is a major time commitment.

Advice to Management

Keep on doing what has gotten you this far! Love the focus on hiring the best and driving strategic growth.

    I worked at Slalom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Local model guarantees evenings at home with family. High quality workforce, mostly sourced from the likes of Accenture, Deloitte etc.

    Cons

    Very monocultural - the entire company seems to be populated by suburban Big 4 types. Born in a suburb, went to a major sports college, started at a large firm, lived in the city for a while, met a girl, moved back to the suburb they were born in, had kids, wife told them their traveling days were over, quit the large firm, started at Slalom. It's fine if that's your thing...

    I worked at Slalom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial and expansion minded. If you can keep your clients happy, you do great. This translates to a higher bill rate, which translates to higher income potential.

    Cons

    Don't expect someone to really develop you - you are on your own. Want a laid back experience or a stressful one? It's on you. Each office operates independently, so don't expect consistency in offerings, cultures, or career trajectories.

    Advice to Management

    Decide if staff aug Or technology consulting is what you want to be. Develop a training ground for those that want to have a career and not just a job.
