    Thoroughly disappointing - watch out if you don't fit into their narrow culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsThere are alot of events to try and get everyone to socialize - kickball, paintball, segway tour, museum visits, etc. Unfortunately these aren't really that "fun" because if your behavior deviates in the slightest from what the professional expectation is, you are judged and ostracized, akin to a elitist fraternity. Some of the work can be interesting if you enjoy programming with SQL.

    ConsThere is absolutely no appreciation for people or ideas that don't fit their "vanilla" (literally and figuratively) culture. If you value individuality and creative thought, this is not the place for you. At the DC office, people force a happy face and put on a facade of over-joyousness. Most people are not down-to-earth and genuine in the slightest.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnfortunately, FTI's business model is endemic to most of corporate America. It'll probably work on a superficial level - the types that don't fit in usually aren't very vocal in their discontent and the ones who do are quite aggressive in their promotion of the firm. Don't expect a diverse set of backgrounds or ideas going forward though.

    It is not a company with a strong corporate culture or mission

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsIntellectually stimulating....allows for telecommuting; works on high profile maters quite often

    ConsNeeds stronger employee engagement, better bonus system, a foundation, more structure among employee ranks and more collaboration among practices

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to employees; better compensation and bonus structure

    Used to be better

    Managing Director (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsCan be challenging work for the right people.
    Bright coworkers who you can learn a lot from if they aren't completely wrapped up in their own agenda.

    ConsPoor communication from corporate management.
    Poor communication and decision making process in our practice area.
    Over time self promotion has gotten out of control.
    Reward system favors people who aren't team players.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management needs be more transparent and open. Local practice areas need to follow suit. True leadership needs to be developed in local practice areas.

    Great professional growth opportunities

    Director (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsFlexibility - no punching the clock - merit based - no facetime
    exciting and challenging projects on timely and important clients

    Conscompensation is lower than banking
    compensation structure rewards billing a lot of hours regardless of efficiency, work product quality, or performance
    too much focus on being "billable" and not on developing business and leaders

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more money on people via compensation, real training seminars/courses, and develop talent.
    communicate more - dont use "confidentiality" as an excuse

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good but with a ceiling

    Managing Director (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    Prosinteresting work, varied and opportunity to travel; smart people to learn from, decent compensation for senior staff to young managers.

    ConsPoor training for fresh out of school new hires, difficult path to senior managing director, upper level compensation (below sr managing director) is sub-par especially for a public company

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed better direction from senior management, compensation package for the higher level below senior managing director is poor, need better training and assistance for new hires & managing directors (assistance to ascend to senior managing director).

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Ok

    Consultant (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsFTI has great benefits and the people completely make the company. The management is very understanding of the work/life balance as well.

    ConsNot nearly compensated enough compared to similar fields of work. There is a very strict advancement structure that generally is not broken.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would find a way to be more transparent with the lower level employees. In addition, find a way to communicate happenings in other offices so that everyone knows what is going on with FTI as a whole.
