Terrible place to work, advancement blocked by more senior professionals

Director (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time for more than 3 years

Pros- Most of the people here are very smart and hard working
- Pay is solid and on par with industry

Cons- Senior leaders are very narrow minded and will not allow people below them any flexibility to try new initiatives
- Bonus is driven way too much on utilization, which provides no incentive to do good work and only bill hours
- Don't do anything to retain talented employees, a lot of which leave within 1-2 years of joining the firm
- No integration of culture from the plethora of acquisitions over the last 5 years
- No strategic vision or leadership from practice leaders or senior management - increasing bill rates and hiring more people is not a sustainable growth strategy. Also no transparency or communication from same leaders.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to provide more communication and transparency, as well as develop a legitimate strategy and actions to achieve the end goal. Just stating the end goal without any implementation is useless.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good but with a ceiling

Managing Director (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at FTI Consulting

Prosinteresting work, varied and opportunity to travel; smart people to learn from, decent compensation for senior staff to young managers.

ConsPoor training for fresh out of school new hires, difficult path to senior managing director, upper level compensation (below sr managing director) is sub-par especially for a public company

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed better direction from senior management, compensation package for the higher level below senior managing director is poor, need better training and assistance for new hires & managing directors (assistance to ascend to senior managing director).

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Quit buying more firms and focus on FTI's core consulting practice

Managing Director (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at FTI Consulting

ProsFTI offers very high salaries and excellent benefits and vacation. The work can be very challenging (this is a plus). The work schedule is flexible, which can be good or bad - some days are not busy while other times you may have to work weekends.

ConsThe structure at FTI is very hierarchical. The review and promotion process is Byzantine. There is little support for mid-level managers - the transition from obtaining work from senior people to generating your own business makes it very lonely in the middle.
