    I have been working at Slalom full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I enjoy working with Slalom. I'm in a newer, smaller market office (San Diego), and I feel the type of work that we have is more impactful than that projects that I worked during my many years at Deloitte. The office seems more agile and nimble with more self-determination than typical Big 4 consulting. Everyone that I work with is super friendly and sharp. And I appreciate that my projects are with fellow San Diegans. The pay is competitive and the client list is growing.

    Cons

    The Slalom name is not yet widely known in San Diego, so I have to explain what Slalom is almost every time someone asks me where I work.

    I have been working at Slalom full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Uniformly smart, driven, ethical colleagues, - A commitment to transparency and truly living our values, from leadership to compensation models, - Exceptional vertical and lateral mobility - if you're interested in something and self-advocate, you can make it happen, - Local, purpose-driven consulting with little staff-aug. Consult on strategy, not filling out SDLC documentation, - A candid, caring culture. This will be my last corporate email address - I won't always be in this role, but I don't see the need to leave.

    Cons

    - Internal knowledge management is still a work-in-progress, - Not great if you love airline and hotel points, but great if you value time with family instead

    I have been working at Slalom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Incredibly intelligent and kind people - Awesome network of resources around the nation - People-focused (for the most part, not all-inclusive) - If you're a 29-45 year old consultant, this is the place for you. Great people, but the vast majority of the office falls into that age group. If you're coming straight out of college, I personally would've potentially preferred a different firm.

    Cons

    - Leadership loves and welcomes the word diversity but the only diversity I've observed them pursue until recently is gender parity. As a person of color, I didn't feel they completely had my interests at heart until there was pressure from the world. - Talked about during the interview process and confirmed within 2 months of starting, I brought up work travel, asking if there were opportunities. They said I could if that was what I desired. To that, I said I want to travel as close to 100% as possible. It's been over a year since I started and I haven't gotten an opportunity to travel for projects. - Earlier in the interview process, I asked if I would be acting in an individual contributor on projects. I'm a growing professional who wants to learn from the intelligent people at Slalom. They said I wouldn't be alone. The last two projects I've been assigned to, I've either been the only Slalom employee at the client or the only Slalom resource on the project. - Slalom told me I would receive a promotion in 6-12 months if I delivered after I started. About 9 months in, I took the initiative to play a role on a project two promotions above my current position. I delivered well, the client trusted me from the beginning of the project, and we worked well together. Thirteen months later, even after delivering exceptionally, I'm still promotion-less with a promotion date that stands as TBD.

    This is John Tobin. There is not quite enough information for me to comment, but I can tell you that you get out of Slalom - especially in terms of pace - what you put into it. I would love to talk to you and find out what you are experiencing. Simply email me at johnt@slalom.com to set up a time to talk.
