    Slalom new hire here. So we're supposed to have work/life balance. After billing 40 hours to the client, there's commute time and expectations of doing a bunch of Slalom training and socializing.

      Mixed bag of some positive and very negative experiences

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Most of the positive reasons have faded since COVID. Office interactions and some genuinely good people made working here great. When leadership decides to help you and push your progress you can move up quickly but its not consistent, equitable or based on any observable merit

      Cons

      - extremely political place that is masked with toxic positivity making everyone feel not genuine in any interactions - any disagreement or voicing genuine concerns is also shot down with toxic positivity that doesnt lead to fruitful action - the advertised work life balance is a lie...this is still consulting - growth is based on who leadership likes and not skill, productivity and target achievement

      Hi - this is Steve Walintschek. Thank you for feedback, I appreciate your openness. I would love to further understand what you mean by toxic positivity. As a leadership team, we are doing our best to be positive, through what has been a difficult time. I would encourage you to directly reach out to me so we can have an open, and confidential conversation about any of these areas. Alternatively, if you’d like to share more feedback anonymously, please consider doing so via this survey: Slalom.Feedback Survey (surveymonkey.com)

      Outstanding Culture.

      Pros

      Highly collaborative culture. Pragmatic decision making. Customer centric thinking. Invests in people and partnerships. Rapid hyperscale growth.

      Cons

      Under construction. Firm is evolving quickly and growth is bumpy, but culture and people are their best asset to keep their teams and people focused. Slalom is for builders, not operators. If you want to write the playbook join Slalom. If you want to operate and be told what to do, go work for Deloitte.
