Incentive cross-selling and spend more to promote organic growth, rather than growth through M&A

    I worked at FTI Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation is competitive
    Perceived corporate reputation has value
    Great lessons on what not to do

    Cons

    Employees are generally dissatisfied with executives living in the bubble
    Perceived corporate reputation is only 40% accurate
    Too many leaders have been with the company under loose practices for too long believing that this is the way things should be managed - out of touch with the state of best practices
    Too many cowboys, leading to redundancy, and risky management practices

    Advice to Management

    Sell the business to new owners who know how to manage a global company, and who will implement better management practices
    Pass the torch
