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

    Pros

    Slalom is by far the best company I've worked for. Slalom genuinely lives its values and has leadership that cares about its employees. During the COVID pandemic in 2020, these values really came to light. We had no layoffs and the response from leadership was positive, consistent, and transparent. There was and continues to be a lot of support to employees. In my own role, I have incredible management and support that helps me succeed at my job, and I feel I am making a significant impact on my market.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any as of now.

    I worked at Slalom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I met one outstanding human during my time at the company.

    Cons

    Leadership is disorganized, unknowledgeable, immature and does not take accountability. Training and on-boarding was insufficient at best, provided by an associate that either did not have a thorough understanding of the job, or was mentally checked-out already. I witnessed first-hand an incident of bullying by a colleague then by a superior. While feedback was solicited, it was not well received and perpetuated a feeling of a fake positive culture. Whereby you are gaslit into believing everything is great by simply not acknowledging the team’s shortcomings or areas of growth, and admonishing or negative-shaming those that provide authentic and transparent feedback as requested. Unfortunately, it would seem this company - while claiming a great culture of “doing the right thing” and leading with empathy, are really just the same as any multi-national corporation. Only wanting to hear what they want to hear, and discouraging dissent.

    This is John Tobin. I will share this with the Toronto leadership team as this is definitely not the type of behavior we would support at Slalom and certainly different than what I have seen in my time here. And regarding mental illness, I feel we have greatly improved our focus there especially during COVID. If you want to share more with me regarding the specific items you observed / felt, simply email me at johnt@slalom.com to set up a time to talk.

    I worked at Slalom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Variety of projects, culture and some nice people

    Cons

    One individual was very arrogant and difficult to work with. His feedback and approach was condescending and highly unprofessional. It was shocking that he got promoted to a leadership role when so many people complained about him, even clients.
