Pros

FTI treats their employees well. From little things like breakfast on Fridays to bigger things like supporting ridesharing and professional development and keeping employees aware of how the company is doing. FTI is also good about informing employees of changes to existing policies and explaining the decision-making process when tough decisions are made. Overall, it's a very collaborate working environment, and I enjoy working there.

Cons

Advancement can sometimes happen a bit slowly. This is probably similar to other companies in the industry. Aside from that, there aren't many downsides.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    -Competitive Salary
    -Good people
    -Great benefits, health, dental, vision
    -Lot's of PTO, even though it's probably too much to take
    - training opportunities

    Cons

    -Beware of downturns in economy, they can lead to, and have led to massive unilateral layoffs with seemingly no regard to utilization rates.
    -Some groups are very top heavy so can be difficult when you are an entry level to learn. You don't always want to ask an MD simple questions, but you have to.
    -When you think to yourself, "Is my job safe? Because I'm not as busy as I thought I would be"--it's not.
    - Work life balance can be challenging, even if you're not traveling there are times when you're basically "on call" until X:00 at night.
    -Be sure your SMD is a GREAT seller of projects, takes care of his/her people, and is competent in the field (in that order).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Do not hire during economic downturns just because high quality talent is available. If you won't be able to use this talent it is going to cost you money in the long run.
    -When considering layoffs discuss with people BELOW the SMD level. Some groups can be SEVERELY handicapped by losing 1 or two people.

    Pros

    Company has done well in the last few years.
    Opportunity to grow personally and professionally

    Cons

    No corporate culture. Years later, FTI is still a ball full of stuff.
    Wildly inconsistent hiring standards.
    No leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check out the 'leadership' positions and how they manage their business. Fear, intimidation, etc. There are people leading offices (i.e. Atlanta, Boston), that shouldn't be allowed to run a hot dog stand. Completely disfuncational corporate culture that no one cares about since we have been so busy. 2010 will be different and the hallways will be empty by the end of the year unless you fix the problems YOU ALREADY KNOW ABOUT.
