Pros

you can be assigned interesting work from time to time

Cons

poor raises and bonus structure changed to make it harder to achieve. this while blowing their own horns about "record profits" during the height of the recent financial crisis.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

dont complain about retention problems once the economy recovers.

    I worked at FTI Consulting

    Pros

    FTI pays quite well, and the office environment itself is quite nice. Management essentially allows each practice to run itself, making some practices exciting and excellent places to work.

    Cons

    Lack of central management and oversite of individual practices means some practices are very poorly run. A practice can easily be failing or severly underuitilized while another practice blasts away working 80 hour weeks. Some managers have serious problems micromanaging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sr. management (the executives) seem happy to leave each practice leader alone. This makes most practice leaders happy, but creates no opportunity whatsoever for more junior staff to explore the different practices within the company and find a great fit. As a result, many talented professionals feel compelled to leave. Find a way to keep quality talent.

    I have been working at FTI Consulting

    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.
