    Pros

    - Overall, great people
    - Good training
    - Social events

    Cons

    - Annual reviews are worthless when it comes to raises and discretionary bonus
    - FTI and the industry has not been winning interesting cases lately, and this trend will most likely continue
    - Lack of interest from both, regional and corporate, in retaining top talent for Consultants and Senior Consultants
    - Very easy to get stuck on one project without an defined end date in-sight
    - It's a crap shoot when it comes to staffing
    - Senior management has been unsuccessful in accurately forecasting business-flow, but are unwilling to adapt

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit trying to grow the company through acquisitions. Concentrate on your core segments and learn to grow the company organically. Work on retaining your employees early on. If you only hire director and hire positions from other companies, it will only result in a clash of different cultures. To harp on what someone else wrote, quit putting money into the wrong programs or initiatives. It looks terrible when the Company opens up another HQ in West Palm Beach while they are laying off 10% of its work force in one quarter....especially during a recession where FTI was supposed to to thrive.
