    Pros

    There are some talented co-workers

    Cons

    No regard for work-life balance (in Financial Services and Valuation groups), high turnover
    Learning curve plateaus quickly, rate of skill development slows sharply after a short period of time due to lack of intellectually challenging work
    Less training than at other consulting firms
    Politics plays a very big role in promotions
    Yearly salary increases are menial even when the company is doing great
    Awful healthcare plans

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate better, find more interesting projects, be meritocratic, respect your employees

    Great Junior People, Silos, Lack of Accountability

    I worked at Navigant Consulting full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great people at the junior level, some amazing Associate Directors and Directors as well. Very interesting and engaging work. Some nice perks, good work-life balance. Never felt over-worked. Life is great if you have a good MD.

    Cons

    Non-competitive benefits package. Projects and skills poorly matched. Very specialized practices and lack of diversity in projects assigned. Each sub-practice is its own siloed territory, guarded fiercely in some cases by MD warlords.

    Had some AD's who would work remotely basically everyday, and junior staff would get blamed for ensuing chaos. Limited room for professional growth and development within smaller, more top-heavy siloes. Great/smart/talented people at all levels, mixed in with some incompetent people at the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure project managers actually show up to work. Consulting is unstructured by nature, but that shouldn't be because of the managers. Have more inter-practice collaboration and consistency throughout.
