An Insider's view of Slalom

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Slalom provides us the autonomy to work in the ways we are most effective. This can include opportunities to work from home, at the office, as well as at the client site.

Chris

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I work across multiple projects with various co-workers and teams, which means I both learn something new and introduce others to the value of design every day. I love watching people get jazzed about things that I love and it’s great knowing that if I ever a question or problem that has me stumped, the answer is only a conversation away.

Ryn

At Slalom, growth isn’t just a title change or adding managerial responsibilities; it's the opportunity to grow into the professional you want to be. The consultants on my team are able to take charge of their growth by proactively seeking out what they would like to learn, do or achieve — and my job as team lead is to help them get those chances.
