    Pros

    One of Slalom's core values is to be a great place to work, something they continually improve upon and celebrate! Slalom continues to win as a company because of the culture and the consultants, that have a passion for winning for clients, families, communities.

    Cons

    I can't think of any...

    Advice to Management

    Continue the strong motivation and respect you currently provide to your teams!

    Pros

    Innovative technology implementation, local model and incredible growth potential. I have never worked for a company that values quality of life and is still dedicated to providing the best possible outcome for clients.

    Cons

    If you like a lot of travel, then Slalom is not for you. Slalom has a local model that allows consultants to work for top clients in their own backyard.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide new offerings and develop innovative ways of helping clients win.

    Cons

    None. I love what I do and I feel challenged on a daily basis. I would reccomend my company to anyone looking for an adventure at a company where you are truly valued.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Can we open an office in Hawaii?

    Pros

    Great culture, strong consultants and leadership that is involved at a local level. The clients are names known nationally and the projects are challenging. Most of all, they stay true to keeping people local and listening to the consultants.

    Cons

    Still has some growing pains. Slalom is moving from 8 local offices to being able to leverage capability nationally and it takes a little while, but they are making good strides.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to leverage the experience you have had in older markets in the newer markets that you are building.

    Pros

    The company has done a great job establishing itself in Seattle and making headway in other markets. While the company has grown, it's also done a good job in keeping the energy and culture. Love the sabbatical and flexibility.

    Cons

    This is probably a result of the consulting industry, but I'd like more opportunities to work and socialize with my colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, and keep pushing on harnessing the capabilities of our people to do more amazing work. Iphone develompent - very cool.

    "Not a bad place to work if you take it for what it is. More of a stagging augmentation company than a true consulting."

    Pros

    Get paid for any overtime worked. Very little administrative duties required.

    Cons

    Day to day work and job satisfaction completely dependant on client you are working for. Very little interaction with anyone else from the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get consultants into the office more often. No interaction with other consultants professionaly.

    Pros

    They offer a very competitive base salary for sales and marketing positions.

    Many of the consultant's are top-notch.

    Cons

    Re: Sales
    The culture is not what they say it is at the home office.
    It is full of politics and inner circle games.
    Sales people are brow-beaten and bullied, consultants lauded.

    If coming from a larger company you'll be shocked at the meager benefit's package.

    The senior sales management is not at all qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Slalom needs a strong independent, external board of directors to cut out the weak links and break up the inner circle.

    Pros

    I was surprised that the company was acutually adhering to their spoken philosophy of putting consultants first. Rewarding tenure and delivery to our clients.

    Cons

    Their are a few leaders that I really question the value of...tenure shouldn't mean hanging on to folks and sometimes it seems that way.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the core of rewarding consultants as this is the revenue stream and it sure would be a bummer to forget that.

    Pros

    Work / life balance and social hours. Too bad the social times couldn't have been cut back instead of letting good people go.

    Cons

    During this economical time lay offs were kept hush hush of who and how many. Never a poor review ever and I got let go along with others. However during the same time salaried consulting directors were put out on billable jobs and consultants were let go.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the people with respect... never know when paths may cross again.

    Pros

    Amazing people and culture, no travel, flexibility, autonomy, interesting clients and projects.

    Cons

    None - really. Unless you want to travel, in which case this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change the model.
