    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time

    Pros

    The workload is pretty steady and not too overwhelming. The pay is pretty good for the work being done. There are so many departments allowing for different career paths. The company culture is as expected for working in technology.

    Cons

    Advancing to different departments is not the easiest. Sometimes the expectations of employees is a bit extreme.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overlook good employees because they aren't going out of their way to impress.

    Pros

    Has lucrative complex clients and there is much to be gained in enhancing ones skills and on the job knowledge and experience.

    Cons

    The atmoshphere/culture is lacking; offices don't function as a unit. Offer many consulting services and employ a variety of professionals with different credentials.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Form more of a cohesive group. Give employees better performance feedback. Enhance the culture and unit.

    Holdover from the Big Four - the good and the bad

    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you join the company as a consultant, you'll get an opportunity to work long hours, travel, get compensated well for overtime, learn a lot, and develop some great technical skills.

    Cons

    As you go up the ranks, it becomes more of the ole boys club with NYC's boy's club ruling the roost. For good or bad, the culture here is holdover from the Big Four. Compensation becomes more difficult and competitive and the benefits are lacking, especially health care and parental leave. The company can also be very silo: how well you do very much may depend on who is your champion. Finally, with all the acquisitions through the years, the company hosts many disparate types of busiesses, and FTI has no consistent culture or brand in the market.
