Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Engineer

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

Pros

Slalom has been an excellent place to work. I had been nervous when I applied 2 years ago that the positive reviews were coerced by management but I haven't heard a peep in the entire time I've been... here. Colleagues are great, work life balance is great, and the company wants you to bring your full self to work.

Cons

As it goes with consulting, you might get staffed on projects you don't always love. Matrix model can be difficult to receive real constructive feedback. Benefits could be better

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing in terms of work life balance and hiring the best people who make a great culture. Invest in your people with better benefits (health, 401k matching, parental leave)
