Good Company, but Getting Very "Corporate"

Organizational Development Consultant (Former Employee) San Mateo, CA

ProsPeople are genuinely friendly
Those with an entrepreneurial spirit who want to work in a corporate environment could do well. FTI likes "big picture" thinkers
San Mateo Campus is an excellent facility with good amenities like gym, cafe, employee services
Benefits are excellent and 401k matching is exceptional
It's surprisingly easy to wind up working there for many, many years

ConsBase salaries may not be market-competitive
Decisions are VERY consensus-driven, making innovation and agility difficult
The friendly and relationship-oriented environment makes it hard to have difficult conversations. Those with direct/blunt communication styles face a tough time at this company
Financial services is highly regulated and FTI is fairly conservative. Getting things done involves multiple layers of approval and revision, which can be frustrating and painstakingly slow.

Advice to Senior ManagementFeedback and succession planning happens in a bubble making it difficult for employees to really understand their strengths/weaknesses. Open up the feedback loop.
External consultants do NOT always have better answers. The staff is surprisingly talented and accomplish great things if you give them a chance to take prudent risks.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
