I have been working at FTI Consulting

Pros

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

Cons

Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

Need 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).

    Pros

    You will receive your paycheck on time. There are always plenty of tasks to be completed for this company. You can learn some things with FTI.

    Cons

    Career advancement within the company is extremely difficult to impossible, as current staff does not advance from existing positions.
    Employees are not given competitive compensation, nor are they compensated appropriately for going above and beyond, but expect to do so on a regular basis.
    Technology Management will regularly demand you work during vacation time (PTO).
    60 to 90 hour work weeks are expected and without compensation.
    Inter-team communication is poor to nonexistent, and employee - management communication is very nearly zero as well. If you have a family, be prepared to not see them for a large portion of your time. FTI Demands a certain high level of commitment from employees that is unreasonable and if an employee is unable to keep that commitment, will reflect very poorly for you in employment reviews.
    Technology has a difficult time retaining employees as there is a lack of respect for most employees by management. Do not expect to work within your job description, this company uses "Other Duties as Assigned" for a large portion of your actual work day. The best way to advance your career is to stay away from this company. It is a chop shop running through a nightmare with seemingly no end in sight. Employees are expected to perform personal reporting on the job that is easily seen as taking care of managements work for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When management asks questions of its employees, it is recommended that you listen to what your people are telling you. Build relationships with your employees instead of treating them as less than human. Put a stop to mistreatment.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I 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.
