    Pros

    Very down to earth and approachable leadership, very transparent, open minded and outstanding culture.

    Cons

    Sometimes we don't utilize our own methods of change management in implementing internal changes.

    I worked at Navigator Management Partners full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The screening process at Navigator Management Partners is fairly stringent. The group is prima facia very welcoming.

    Cons

    There is no room for dissent at all. They made many promises when our company was acquired and chief among them was to relax because they have never laid anyone off. Less than 60 days later were layoff phone calls. In the phone calls were a number of statements (e.g. "call with HR to explain the process and details...", etc) and all of those were reneged upon. Many libelous accusations were made against each of the people that were laid off internally and to the outgoing personnel directly. They implied theft and a lack of cooperation while their few directions were followed explicitly and other questions were left unanswered. In short, once the separation decision is made there is no integrity or honesty in how they handle the separation. They cut off all of my access while still asking me to be on client site for 2 weeks. I found out that my purchasing card was cut off when the hotel bill would not go through. They are untrustworthy and they treat others with the same distrust that they deserve. When I personally told the management that it was unethical for me to remain on a particular client site because there was literally no work for me they gave me a layoff notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice. The character issues are so embedded that any advice would be dismissed.

    I have been working at Navigator Management Partners part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very talented, experienced co-workers who are always willing to help out. A trusting culture that values employee input. Good work-life balance, especially for a consulting firm that competes with large, traveling firms. Devoted to non-profit efforts and local community.

    Cons

    It's a flat organization with leadership opportunities, but not many traditional advancement opportunities. This can be hard for some who find satisfaction from job titles.

    Pros

    Very strong leadership team with a high set of values that they live and work by
    Ability and support to run with your ideas
    Strong support of the local community... not just with monetary donations but with time
    Transparent organization - ask and you'll get an answer (good or bad)

    Cons

    It's a small company that is growing so there are some growing pains.
    Competition is often much bigger companies with wide-spread brand recognition

    Pros

    If you are an employee in the Columbus office with SAP or PeopleSoft experience you will have opportunities to work at some of the best companies in Columbus.

    Cons

    Management does not interact enough with the employees in the offices outside of Columbus. You will feel like an outcast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to meet with the employees in the locations outside of Columbus and get to know them and listen to their ideas and suggestions

    Pros

    If you are located in Columbus, you have exposure to the management team. If you are at one of the of the other locations, such as New York or east coast, you are isolated.

    Cons

    Smaller company - so limited opportunities for advancement. Management doesn't reach out to the smaller offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make time to meet with your staff and get to know them. They have some great ideas - ask them.
