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

    Pros

    Pays overtime incentive bonus. Great place to learn QC skills. Management will tell you directly what you need to improve upon. Career advancement opportunities are good.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic - Poor leadership from management has led to incredible turnover rates

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the people more (training, listening to their gripes and coming up with action plans to address, etc.)

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

    Pros

    A good place to learn some new skills. Able to work independently. Some performance managers are really great, however their enthusiasm gets hampered by the leadership. Co-workers are pleasant to work with. Social outings are nice.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance can be poor for staff in consulting roles. Lack of real advancement...just because you went from consultant to sr. consultant, to manager really doesn't mean anything. A lack of a unified vision between teams and departments really keeps the practices and products from improving. If you're hired, once the "honeymoon phase" is over, unless you've made it into one of the cliques, you're pretty much parked.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at the middle management layers...the managing directors and senior managing directors. Those people are there to line their pockets and they may not really be concerned with the long term growth of the business. Look at the history of the stock price as an example, it's half the value it was in 2008.
