Consultant (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WAApril 27, 2016
I was a project employee at Slalom for 4 years, but I was able to interact with fellow consultants during all-hands meetings at the client site. The people who I interacted with were very professional, willing to share their knowledge and help out.
Pros
Monthly meetings with fellow consultants to interact and catch up
Cons
As a project employee, I was not included in many activities that FTEs were involved in.

Taking Over the World
Infrastructure Engineer / Support Analyst II (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAJune 15, 2015
Slalom is poised to quietly take over the world of professional consulting. With an amazing way of benching stagnant resources and taking care of people regardless of work or not, it's no wonder top talent is drawn to this company.
Pros
Solid Advancement Opportunities
Cons
Internal Growing Pains (2010)

Software Engineer, promoted to Consultant (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAJune 3, 2015
Slalom is likely one of the best consulting companies you could work for. The work-life balance is excellent, the team culture is great, and the people are all fun.

Only con I can really think of is a lot of "projects" are more staff-aug work than actual projects.

Technology Consultant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 24, 2014
Typical Consulting minus the bureaucracy to that extent. I wouldn't say it's not there but not as bad as the Big 4.

However they have to sill improve their compensation/Benefits to attract & retain top talent.

Transitioning - Growing while struggling to maintain core values
Corporate Services (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAJuly 29, 2013
As a high growth consulting firm, the focus is rightly on the consultation side of the business. Unfortunately this is often at the expense of the corporate services that support them.

This results in a high allure but ultimately stagnant environment for any employee not directly generating billable projects. Many of the management are from large local tech firms and only hire or promote people they have previously worked with, unwittingly working to create a semi-hostile workplace for newcomers. If you can make it past this period of antagonism, the company itself is amazing to work for and the people are top notch.

They are growing fast and still trying to figure out the work division and individual roles needed to maintain service levels. Thus, hiring is slow and workload is high for most internal departments.
Pros
fringe benefits, colleagues, activities, interesting work
Cons
workload, lack of training, embedded management, lack of support
