I have been working at Slalom 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

    Slalom Hartford is fully focused on providing successful solutions for local clients. It affords you the opportunity to be proud of the work you are doing and feel like you are part of improving local area businesses rather than looking at them as sales figures - Slalom cares about the success of their clients. The culture in Hartford is the right balance of fun, creativity, and hard work. It is the right place for smart people who want to figure out solutions to complex business problems but still through a party once in a while. Ensuring an engaged and happy group of employees is a clear priority.

    Cons

    There are a lot of planned social events designed to promote teamwork and friendship among employees. Depending on personal interests these may seem to interfere with your personal balance. If you want to work 8 hours and go home without seeing anyone else, Slalom is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to leverage the great work being done in local markets such as Hartford to make them more broadly available. Do not break the local market focus consulting model.
