    Pros

    Pays well; good benefits; longevity of position if you work hard, are dedicated and committed; promotes within; there are some good people who work for the company, for the most part.

    Cons

    Rigid corporate environment; "old boys club" mentality; work/life balance practices need improvement; office politics make the environment toxic.

    Advice to Management

    Improve and "freshen up" the culture to make working at FTI a more pleasant and appealing experience for its employees.

    Pros

    Interesting work and good opportunity to work with great clients.

    Cons

    Since the economy has become so competitive, the culture at the firm has become very cut throat. The question that's asked by everyone, especially the SMDs, is "What have you done for me lately?" Everyone says it's a teamwork oriented environment, but the notion of teaming or sharing is a joke. Folks here protect contacts, protect clients, and don't practice cross sharing or cross selling. Lots of great talent not being nurtured, and incompetent folks getting promoted. Management also lacks the ability to communicate any news effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Read all the "Con" reviews on Glassdoor carefully. They are definitely sending a consistent message to management: no transparency, incompetent SMDs, short term gains at the expense of long term vision, lip service on teaming, old boys network, poor pay, bad benefits... These are all true.
