A company that has very little invested in its employees

I worked at Navigant Consulting

Pros

For a period of time, Navigant was comprised of bright, energetic people. Some of the leaders within their respective fields congregated under the larger umbrella.

Cons

Navigant's strategic goals were unattainable for years. There was a campaign to "build to a billion" without any discernable direction. Prior to the recession, Navigant bought several companies without thinking about how the separate entities would assimilate. To solve the problem of cost growth without commensurate revenue generation, Navigant experienced heavy attrition; conveniently ascribing its management problems to larger economic forces.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Navigant's leadership needs to take ownership over its poor decisions. Accountability would create changes in leadership, which is much needed for the organization.

    Pros

    Fair pay and fair benefits.

    Cons

    No communication on firm-wide policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let employees know simultaneously what's doing-send emails to keep them informed and not in the dark the way you do now.

    Outside Training is the best take away

    I have been working at Navigant Consulting

    Pros

    The company is set up as silos and it is not easy to move between. Some groups are great and work well, a lot of groups are terrible. If you want to pursue a certification or outside training you can usually get support for it.

    Cons

    Skilled project work is coveted and you have to work hard to obtain meaningful work. The company does not promote from within and the staff is not diverse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management does not appear to have any strategic planning in the works for the future. Also, it is very easy for non-productive management and employees to "hide out" and not do anything.
