It’s so horrible that I am not going to have a kid until I move to a different company.

I would just speak for myself. 1. Leadership is great and are easily approachable 2. Salary is good compared to big4 (I have never worked for big4 but cleared interviews and they could not match Slalom’s package). 3. Culture and the people are very good. It’s like working with your family. 4. Healthcare benefits aren’t that bad. 5. No peer pressure to climb up the ladder. But immense support available if you want to. 6. I have mostly worked no more than 40-45 hours a week. Except for 1 where the team got additional PTOs. 7. No expectation to work over weekend or after hours at my level.

Op. Other than the maternity policy and 401k, everything else is pretty much great! 😄

I’m sure it’s amazing.

C2, can you share what benefits / other factors you like? Thanks for your insights!

Thanks C2!
