Lots of hours spent on mind-numbing projects

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

I have been working at Navigant Consulting full-time for more than a year

ProsThere are some talented co-workers

ConsNo regard for work-life balance (in Financial Services and Valuation groups), high turnover
Learning curve plateaus quickly, rate of skill development slows sharply after a short period of time due to lack of intellectually challenging work
Less training than at other consulting firms
Politics plays a very big role in promotions
Yearly salary increases are menial even when the company is doing great
Awful healthcare plans

Advice to Senior ManagementCompensate better, find more interesting projects, be meritocratic, respect your employees

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pure body shop, MD level has no strategy, market connections or real expertise.

Director (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at Navigant Consulting

ProsTalented people move up quickly

ConsLack of strategic focus. Senior management staff should be providing the inroads from marketing, product building, thought leadership and strategy development. Just a club that sets a goal and checks utilization.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou can't outsource strategy. Your senior management staff has to be the cultural leader and strategy provider.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good place to stand out, but terrible corporate structure.

Consultant (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at Navigant Consulting

ProsInternal mobility.
Direct opportunities to interact with upper management.
Opportunities to learn transferable skills sets.
Amount of vacation time (4 weeks).
Caliber of people who you get to work with.

ConsSome people work 100 hours a week, others work 40, there is little to differentiate between those who work 100 and those who work 40.
Some management doesn't understand how to explain big picture behind project.
Different practices fast track the promotion cycle, even though there may be others more qualified for promotions.
A lot of internal politics.
Lack of transparency from corporate execs to corporate citizens.

Advice to Senior ManagementSend a unified message.
Compensate your hardest working and most talented people the best.
Strive for transparency at all times.
Take time to solicit feedback from employees at the most junior level.
