    Pros

    Great People Great Culture Work-Life Balance Improving Benefits Growing Company no layoffs during covid. no travel unless you want to

    Cons

    If you are not in technology - there are very few opportunities to do great work. Strategy practices are still selling mostly PM work. No clear direction or strategy from Seattle leadership to leverage advisory work. The salespeople, or the leaders within various offices, don't understand how to sell strategy work. They are not willing to invest in the right type of strategy leaders. They need to understand that advisory work brings in more technology work – it is all connected. If you are a strategy or a finance professional – best to look elsewhere. Maybe Slalom will get their act right when it comes to selling strategic work but I don’t see it happening. Not many growth opportunities for non-technology folks. The new career framework was not rolled out properly. They wanted to standardize roles and titles but did a poor job of it. They did not consider people's experiences. Giving someone with 20 years of experience the same title as another consultant with 5 years of experience is not the right way to do it. They purposely held back people and didn’t give them the deserving titles because Slalom did not want to increase their pay. Now, everyone is trying to get promoted to a position they should have already gotten and or looking to move out of Slalom. Pay is lower than the competitors.
