    I have been working at FTI Consulting

    Pros

    Nice place to work, flexible and the project managers are great, and make an effort to keep the contract employees engaged continuously on projects

    Cons

    No benefits and not many paid holidays

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If contract employees are bound by the same rules as full time employees and required to be in the office "core hours" then we should have access to an optional healthcare plan. Also for people who have been there a year or more they shouldn't have to work the day before a holiday to get the holiday pay, and we should have the same paid holidays we had with our staffing agencies (Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Years Day). Instead of only 4th of July, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

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

    Pros

    I feel like my coworkers are sharp and educated. Compensation is pretty good. They have also been mindful of my young kids in determining travel schedules. My particular segment is definitely growing.

    Cons

    None bad enough to mention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue efforts at cross-pollination of segments.

    I have been working at FTI Consulting

    Pros

    good leadership although small size, but everyone works together well and the company culture is decent enough compared to other firms i have worked at

    Cons

    not many cons but perhaps small size? department wise though, so perhaps with expansion plans this can change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more focus on employee training would be a boon, but generally management is decent

    I have been working at FTI Consulting

    Pros

    The model of the firm is similar to the partner/associate model in a law firm; much of the day to day will depend on your manager. This tends to result in a entrepreneurial atmosphere in the firm, in my experience. So far I've enjoyed my time here.

    Cons

    Good/bad here. I think it really depends on your personality. If you are someone who needs to plan every single day the same way, this is not the place for you. Every day is different. I enjoy the excitement but sometimes that makes planing my personal life a bit of a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the entrepreneurial spirit! The positivity is infectious, in a good way. One minor sidebar: there is an opportunity for efficiency in terms of our portfolio of employee/internal software
