    Very interesting work, high profile clients, network of intelligent people with strong drive for growth and collaboration across Energy Practice

    Low opportunity to pursue projects with business models other than fees for time and materials, performance / incentive compensation is inadequate

    Pros

    It is a well diversified company that provides excellent health benefits and training opportunities. It also provides an motivating environment to develop as a consultant.

    Cons

    The different sectors of the company do not seem to blend together in an amalgamated fashion. There seems to be different corporate cultures across different practices.

    Pros

    Management is very employee-friendly, flexible to work from home, proactive about training, communicating strategies, and community involvement. Income is competitive and incentives are based on performance.

    Cons

    None really, as long as you work hard and bring skills to the table. More than 3 weeks vacation would be nice.

    Pros

    The people are simply great - so collaborative and helpful. The practice I joined is global, and the people we have around the world are wonderful to work with. The atmosphere in the office is hugely positive - it is just a great place to be. I had a family friend here on work experience recently - she was blown away by it all too. I did the same job for 24 years before coming here, and had no reason to move, but the more people I met the easier the decision became. I would highly recommend Navigant as an employer.

    Cons

    Getting used to the corporate culture (not Navigant specific corp culture, just generally) was a shock to my system as I had not been in this environment before, but I am slowly picking it up (with the help of my wonderful colleagues).

    Pros

    Our leadership team has clearly articulated a vision for future growth, we are bring top talent on board and winning great engagements that keep our workforce challenged and motivated. The company offers internal and external training options to advance its workforce and the culture here embraces diversity through Employee Resource Groups. The Firm also supports new ideas and has created platforms, like the Innovation Challenge to reward employees for out-of-the-box thinking.

    Cons

    Change doesn't always happen overnight, but the company is making strides in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating and articulating the path for growth to employees. It's great that management offers feedback on areas that need work. The senior leadership team is also doing a great job of communicating the vision for growth, but it would be great to see more examples of how that vision is (or will be) actualized.
