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.

    Pros

    Management is very casual. There is not much "red tape" in regards to PTO and such. Benefits (401k, PTO amounts, health care, etc) are all very generous.

    Cons

    There is no formal learning or education path.

    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 Management

    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.
