    I have been working at Navigant Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Forward thinking, results oriented leadership provides growth opportunities for anyone interested.
    Consulting can involve long hours and hard work - regional philosophy allows for less travel and more work life balance than the competitors.
    Excellent experience with the recruiting organization as well as all of human capital.

    Cons

    Practices are somewhat silo like - would be nice to get more exposure across groups especially at more junior levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognition that corporate service employees, while not billing, are essential to the success and I growing growth.

    Pros

    -Complex, challenging engagements
    -Many young, smart people
    -Strong focus on training and continuing education
    -Flexible work arrangements, among other initiatives, are currently in the works

    Cons

    -Not a great work/life balance
    -Inefficiency is rewarded here; bonuses are based on utilization, rather than quality of work
    -Managing Directors can get away with some pretty appalling behavior if they're bringing enough business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that your consultants do not get lost; assign mentors to the young people.
