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

    I worked at FTI Consulting

    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

    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.
