Pros

Talented people move up quickly

Cons

Lack of strategic focus. Senior management staff should be providing the inroads from marketing, product building, thought leadership and strategy development. Just a club that sets a goal and checks utilization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You can't outsource strategy. Your senior management staff has to be the cultural leader and strategy provider.

    Pros

    Navigant does a great job hiring people who are knowledgeable but also fun and easy to work with. The people are its greatest strength. It also works in a number of different industries, geographies, and functional areas, so there's availability to pursue varied interests.

    Cons

    The tasks assigned to lower level consultants and new hires in the D&I practice can be really boring and mundane considering you just finished a rigorous undergraduate degree. However, the work can get more interesting once you get more responsibility and placed on different project types.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Navigant should offer some clearer pathways to transfer to other parts of the organization, even as part of a rotational program. This sort of initiative would have to be organized by upper management, since many of the individual offices and Managing Directors run their operations as a stand alone business.

    Good place to stand out, but terrible corporate structure.

    Pros

    Internal mobility.
    Direct opportunities to interact with upper management.
    Opportunities to learn transferable skills sets.
    Amount of vacation time (4 weeks).
    Caliber of people who you get to work with.

    Cons

    Some people work 100 hours a week, others work 40, there is little to differentiate between those who work 100 and those who work 40.
    Some management doesn't understand how to explain big picture behind project.
    Different practices fast track the promotion cycle, even though there may be others more qualified for promotions.
    A lot of internal politics.
    Lack of transparency from corporate execs to corporate citizens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Send a unified message.
    Compensate your hardest working and most talented people the best.
    Strive for transparency at all times.
    Take time to solicit feedback from employees at the most junior level.
