I worked at Navigant Consulting

Pros

- Friendly colleagues and senior management fairly approachable.
- Strong expertise in certain verticals healthcare, energy etc. and a great opportunity to learn for junior level employees.
- Good work/life balance options in terms of being abled to work flexible schedules
- Reasonable compensation and benefits.

Cons

- Limited collaboration across practices and within certain practices because compensation structure for Ds and MDs is based more on achieving individual targets.
- Challenging work environment at mid career stage where utilization targets are too aggressive which does not lend itself well to focusing efforts on business development initiatives that will get you to the next career stage.
- Work in some verticals can get boring and junior staff at times may not have flexibility to develop skills beyond their sub practice areas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Create a compensation structure for MDs and Ds whereby those who collaborate are rewarded more than those who stay within their silos.
- Try to actively provide cross practice development opportunities for individuals interested in learning about the complete business. This can also improve inter practice collaboration.
- Explore options for becoming privately held so that practices can spend time developing strategic areas without having to constantly worry about margins.
