I have been working at Navigant Consulting

Pros

Young work environment. Good culture. Decent benefits packages. Offices in every major city. Recruits from good schools. Flat management structure.

Cons

Disparity in opportunity and compensation amongst practice areas. Lack of transparency. Bad sharing of knowledge between practice areas. Lack of teamwork at higher levels.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Firm management and some practice area management should be more closely regulated and managed. Training programs need to be improved. Collaboration with other firms must be encouraged and facilitated.

    Pros

    Competitive Salary, good experience gained from bad experiences.

    Cons

    Lots of Micromanaging, good employees are treated like crap, hardworking employees are rewarded with more work and less resources. Management shows favoritism when determining promotions and layoffs. Senior Managers seem to make a lot of bad decisions and mistakes and are very quick to point fingers at lower level employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs an intensive training on Leadership & Ethics

    It really depends on the group you work in. Could be OK, could be horrible.

    Pros

    The pay is on par with the industry. Bonuses completely determined by hours worked with no performance component, which is good and bad, of course. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    I can only speak to the Economics practice and mainly to the Chicago Partners end of it. The practice consists of three separate firms that have been merged into one. There are remnants of LECG, Chicago Partners, and Empiris at this firm. They do very dissimilar work. Chicago Partners concentrates on very high end, large stakes litigation with prominent academic economists. That seems pretty interesting. However, these economists have clearly decided that there's no way to make their earn out and have decided not to bring any cases. A horrible practice to be in for career development and mobility.
