Little room for advancement, conniving management, and bad work atmosphere.

Pros

The salary, benefits, and bonus was very competitive compared to other competitors. Outside of known deadlines, the work was steady so the hours were reasonable and the work / life balance was great. Co-workers on the staff level were very nice and helpful.

Cons

Management has little regard for staff level consultants and cares little about professional development or skills you can learn. Consultants often get pigeonholed into working on dead-end projects for years. Staff employees are talked about among management behind closed doors. Company turnover and burnout is quick, as consultants rarely make it past 2 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop staff level consultants and move them around to different projects so they can improve their skills. Be honest and open with everyone in the company, not just management. Avoid playing obvious favorites, it doesn't help productivity in the office.

    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.
