    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture can be invigorating because the company is full of highly intelligent and create people working together. The culture is open to anyone on a project team to offer ideas and the company moves quickly to incorporate new ideas into a project.

    Cons

    There is no clear reporting structure which causes confusing and competing requests. The promotion, raises, and bonuses being tied to performance are also kept secretly. At times there is no work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage the employees to use more of their PTO.

    I worked at FTI Consulting as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Overall good experience. Work directly under MDs on projects. Will put you on the road for certain cases. Learned a lot about the lifestyle and nature of consulting from traveling and working directly with clients. Good pay.

    Cons

    If business is slow, work can be extremely boring. In addition, large learning curve to a lot of the work you will be doing, and not much training, even if you are a finance person.

    Cons

    Long hours prohibit a good work/life balance. Sometimes very stressful. Some of the health insurance benefits could be better.

    I worked at FTI Consulting full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people I worked with. People were friendly and smart. The work was interesting for the most part, and office was a nice place to work

    Cons

    Compensation was just average compared to the value you provide. The hours were kinda long as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward high performers better to retain better talent. Also, listen to your employees. If you have employees who want to travel, staff those people on the travel engagements vs people who are sick of it.
