    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours - Good Friends

    Cons

    No bonus or increase of job duties unless you are part of the "click" Employees receives no recognition. Shared Services questions are pass along to everyone. Never on the same page. All payments are paid late because management does not allow support Managers mostly stand around gossiping about employees

    Advice to Management

    Become involved with your employees duties. Take classes to be more familiar with your department. Supervisor should fight for higher raises and bonus instead of taking all of it for yourself.

    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I feel like my coworkers are sharp and educated. Compensation is pretty good. They have also been mindful of my young kids in determining travel schedules. My particular segment is definitely growing.

    Cons

    None bad enough to mention.

    Advice to Management

    Continue efforts at cross-pollination of segments.

    I worked at FTI Consulting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are very nice. Most are competent, and willing to assist when needed. Great vacation package, and good bonuses (if you are eligible).

    Cons

    Very limited promotional opportunities. If you are fortunate, you will be in the select group of those who continue to move up the ladder. Most of the truly dedicated employees are ignored, and the talented ones leave within three years.

    Advice to Management

    To the new C-suite group, listen to the employees who are actually doing the work. Management will cover themselves; take the information in their "paper trails" with a grain of salt.

    Pros

    Paid fairly well but it's not a software development organization.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is legal consultants working on multi million dollar contracts. This means that when something goes wrong there's a "reaching out" to grab whoever can fix it. All well and good until the number of emergencies makes it impossible to do the development that might oh.. prevent the emergency.

    Advice to Management

    You have expert accountant consultants. Maybe they can set up an internal billing system so that when someone reaches out and grabs developers off their projects, the project they're grabbed for gets billed for the time lost in a way that encourages planning ahead and getting official resources.

    Pros

    The model of the firm is similar to the partner/associate model in a law firm; much of the day to day will depend on your manager. This tends to result in a entrepreneurial atmosphere in the firm, in my experience. So far I've enjoyed my time here.

    Cons

    Good/bad here. I think it really depends on your personality. If you are someone who needs to plan every single day the same way, this is not the place for you. Every day is different. I enjoy the excitement but sometimes that makes planing my personal life a bit of a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the entrepreneurial spirit! The positivity is infectious, in a good way. One minor sidebar: there is an opportunity for efficiency in terms of our portfolio of employee/internal software
