    Pros

    The core values that are publicly posted on Slalom's website is how the company approaches everything, from alliance partners, solution development for clients, and internal operations.

    Cons

    Offices and groups can sometimes act as separate entities with room for improvement in collaboration.

    Pros

    The people. There are some super smart people here doing some really interesting projects and growing the Houston market. They know how to party and celebrate. There is a company trip yearly that is super fun and company meetings regularly with drinks and activities. They do their best to be socially responsible of the current social landscape recognizing BLM and gay rights efforts and organizing awareness events. They have done great offering support during Covid 19.

    Cons

    Highly focused on billings hours so I miss many of the fun events to ensure I don't lose my bonus. There is no exemption when there are company events. Missing work to attend Conant training or company meetings you must work overtime to make up hours. They also encourage you to work 44 hour work week instead of 40. I would also love to see even more diversity in the Houston office.

    Pros

    Organization is very culture focussed and has perfect work life balance.

    Cons

    More experienced consultants might feel stuck with their salary if they don't want to pursue sales roles. Unfortunately, upward growth happens only if you do sales.

    Pros

    Amidst this global pandemic Slalom is sticking true to our values and I'm a firm believer that we will come through this stronger than ever. The leadership team has taken a human approach to protecting our teams during the recession. They are showing-up in conversations about equality, social justice, and race with empathy and openness. Overall, Slalom is an incredible company to work for.

    Cons

    You have to carve your own path for career growth. The leadership team talks openly about the opportunity to build more infrastructure for growth and movement within the company.
