    Pros

    As a software engineer, working in the Seattle office has a fantastic balance of work and life. Folks are kind, fun, friendly and personable. Few engineers take the day to day grind so seriously they can't break for a game of cards at the lunch table. If you can get job satisfaction from punching the clock doing assigned tasks on a monolithic, feature-rich, legacy-bound, and technologically diverse software offering, this is the place for you

    Cons

    The parent company treats all employees as consultants -- expendable, replaceable, and worth only what they can do for you in the moment. Knowing this, it is possible to be successful (if not appreciated) by simply doing your tasks and keeping your head down. Innovation is pushed, skunk works projects are unheard of (unless directed by upper management), and frequently engineers are placed between disagreeing upper managers. In all, this can be a very frustrating experience for an engineer beyond the entry level or not near retirement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that FTI Consulting and FTI Technology will continue to be highly successful. The business needs do not require content or exceptional software engineers -- revenue is driven through IT and consultants in the cloud offerings. To that end, I believe management is doing right by the quarter-to-quarter bottom lines.

    I worked at FTI Consulting full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you get promoted up to the SMD level you are very well paid, with little regard for your effort, skills, or value you bring to the organization

    Cons

    An amazingly inefficient company. There is a lot of expertise there but no one shares ideas or works together (that might reduce billable hours). Lots of inept upper level management who diligently work hard to make others look bad in order to not have their own mistakes noticed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the executive level, take a very hard in depth look at the SMD level. There is an amazing amount of dead weigh. Lots of SMDs that provide little to no value. Not to mention many that do a lot of harm by only looking to maximize their own bonus, not the overall good of the company.
