"I’ve grown more in the past five months than in the past three years. People at Slalom don’t have a corporate mask on. Everyone supports each other and builds each other up. My associate consultant group was welcomed with open arms in our local market, and then we all flew to bootcamp and spent a week learning all about a project life cycle with people from all over the world. After that, the Data and Analytics Academy was a smaller group working together, and we got really close. Now, I’m on projects learning so much, and I feel like I have a huge support group."

"The Consulting Foundations program is a phenomenal way to enter the business and technology industries and build a network. It was a really good career move for me because it allowed me to test and prove my skills and be a constant learner and continually improve, but within a safe environment. I was struck by how much support there was in the bootcamp, and I was really impressed with my cohort."

"My experience has really been defined by the relationships we get to build at a local level. I came to Slalom because I thought its staffing model was a true enabler and facilitator of its core values. It wasn't all just talk. People here are encouraged to pursue their interests, at every single level. It's invigorating to have that culture of perpetual learning, so many people passionate about what they're doing. Come with an open mind. Come eager to learn. You're going to be exposed to so much."

Hands-on learning, real-world impact

Associate consultants at Slalom work on all kinds of projects, honing their skills by working closely with experienced consultants and clients. Here are a few examples of projects people worked on during their first years.
"I helped the finance director of a large beverage company figure out how to resolve all the discrepancies between his four different data systems. I was able to make a big impact in just two and a half months."
"My first project as an associate consultant was the perfect blend of exciting and challenging—different from what a lot of my peers are experiencing in their first jobs."
"I worked on a big project with a global media company, where we moved them from their old CRM system to Salesforce, cleaned up all their data, and implemented that all over the world."
