    Avantages

    - Great base pay. - Opportunities abound for people who can work like consultants - Growing company with lots of perks. - Consulting culture is strong and overall people seem happy

    Inconvénients

    - This is NOT a sales run organization. - Very much considered a 'necessary evil' from the consulting teams. - Cut throat environment where sales leadership will micro manage deals and try to take credit and muscle their way into deals.

    Conseils à la direction

    - Senior sales professionals should be given the full spectrum of resources to succeed in their positions, especially in new markets.

    This is John Tobin. I believe our sales teams are a huge part of team and frankly I rarely see any cut throat behavior. I would also agree (that by design) we are more consulting-led vs. Sales-led and I don't think that is a bad thing. I'd be happy to talk to you more about what you experienced if you would like - simply email me at johnt@slalom.com to set up a time to speak.

    Avantages

    Good lunch and learns hosted by leaders in the practice where interns can ask any questions related to it. Really helps because it keeps interns eyes open to new possibilities. Can literally ask anyone out for coffee and they will gladly make time to ask more questions. Managers try to provide as much support which is appreciated!

    Inconvénients

    Needs to move to a bigger office soon, getting really stuffy.

    Avantages

    great in-office perks (snacks, beer, drinks), lots of social events, fair market base pay and bonus

    Inconvénients

    I joined Slalom just over 3 years ago when the Toronto office was still new and the organization was very entrepreneurial. Back then, the company felt like a dream - small family-style team, everyone got along and respected each other, leadership listened and made changes. Once Slalom Toronto broke even profit-wise about 1.5 years ago, however, the company took a sharp negative downturn and is only getting worse... with each passing week. Recruiting took a nosedive and now hires virtually anyone with a pulse. Leadership is focused purely on sales to hit their numbers and get their big bonuses, and there is no longer any care about lower employees on the hierarchy. Promotion is entirely based on perceptions - if you suck up to the leadership and parrot their false smiles constantly, you get promoted regardless of merit. Conversely, delivery or technical excellence is no longer a concern. Projects have become chaotic, filled with poor-performing practitioners, and stacked with expensive leaders billing but not contributing. Additionally, projects are no longer interesting - the focus has become to sell anything, rather than selling interesting and fulfilling pieces of work. The local consulting team is slowly getting phased out, with everyone focusing on selling developer (Build/XM) projects or augmenting their offerings. Finally, even the culture has hollowed out - Slalom Toronto no longer lives by the company's core values and just parrots meaningless platitudes around to each other in an echo chamber. My advice for those looking to join would be to understand if you're looking for fulfilling work and career progression, or if you're looking for a shallow superficial "happy" place to work. Slalom will not provide any meaningful fulfillment. Caveat Emptor.

    Conseils à la direction

    Create a proper method for upward feedback. Listen to your employees, don't just dismiss them because you don't like what you're hearing. Stop hiring your friends to fill in senior leadership roles despite them being unqualified or disinclined to do any meaningful work. Bring back the Slalom that existed 2-3 years ago! Stop growing simply for the sake of growing and start only hiring quality again, with full vetted... recruitment.

    This is John Tobin. I have shared this post with the Canada GM, with some additional suggestions for making sure there is communication about various initiatives underway to ensure the culture and core values remain strong in Canada as the business grows there. I appreciate your efforts here at Slalom and since you were here in the relative beginning for Canada, we have probably met before. I'd be happy to talk to you more about this if you would like - simply email me at johnt@slalom.com to set up a time to speak.
