    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, balance etc

    Cons

    If you are not a consultant and work in recruiting or another smaller "niche" area, you are not embraced.

    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time

    Pros

    1) Very smart, personable, and down-to-earth colleagues
    2) Opportunity to work on varied types of engagements/clients
    3) High profile clients
    4) Opportunity to take on responsibility and do meaningful work from early on in career - not too much in the way of "busy" work in my experience so far.
    5) Good place to develop sought-after technical skills.
    6) Large firm resources with a boutique firm feel.
    7) Compensation is fair, good benefits.

    Cons

    1) Lack of consistency in Consultant experience by practice, region, and even at an individual level.
    2) Easy to get pigeonholed into working on the same client/engagement indefinitely.
    3) C-suite does not engage with lower level employees (;interested to see how this plays out after the upcoming change in management). Still seen as an "old boys' club".
    4) Slew of acquisitions resulted in lack of a unified culture and ambivalence as to where FTI fits into the market - broad and sometimes uncoordinated array of service offerings.
    5) High turnover rate among the most talented lower-level staff.
    6) Promotions/raises/bonuses are not adequately merit-based.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make everybody happy (not just the MDs and SMDs) and you'll see higher retention and development of a more unified culture.
