FTI Consulting

Have an offer for EY Parthenon - Working Capital. Would it be worth the jump from FTI Consulting - CF & Rx? The offer is roughly 25% more than what I make now with roughly 1.5 YOE out of undergrad. Is this a no brainer? Will I regret it? I heard all incoming EYP associates come in as generalists even if they are aligned with a competency, is this correct? Can you share more details on this? Any and all information would be great as I make this important career decision!

    Extremely professional

    May 17, 2022 - Senior Consultant in Washington, DC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The organization is built around getting the best work out of their employees, so your work feels extremely valued. Little things are taken care of, and my team gives me the flexibility to work when I want, in order to let me be more productive.

    Cons

    For my team, the value placed on work can sometimes overvalue work without value. I.e. people work longer hours than they should.

    Pros

    Easy assignments, good communication between project managers and KAs, kind people, will roll you over onto other projects, can get overtime hours and pay (time and a half), can WFH, managers open to feedback and suggestions and responsive

    Cons

    Underpaid, a lot of short term doc reviews with downtime between projects, have to use facial recognition software and be recorded entire workday, diff levels of project managers (with the lowest level being a LOT more work for $2 more an hour), no benefits for hourly employees

    Good

    May 12, 2022 - Senior Recruiter 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Good values and benefits (great PTO plans, 401k match, etc) -Much better work/life balance for "consulting" than many, esp. Big 4.. -Culture is good overall vs. big 4 and many others. Positive environment -Smaller company = less red tape and politics, easier to go to A to B and to seek out who you need and get a meeting with them -Most Hiring Managers and Hiring Teams are respectful to recruiting -Company Leadership and CEO are very stable and visible, tell it like it is (when they said they are not laying off bc of covid shutdown, it held true)

    Cons

    -FTI good, recruiting team could be better organized and more tactical. -Some of the KPI and metrics driven data to measure recruiters is way too stringent and dated. -Recruiting Leadership can be disorganized and confusing, reactive sometimes vs. thinking through issues for longer-term solutions- lot of shuffling around groups and roles. -Pay is solid but hasn't overly kept up with market (both for recruiting team and external offers to candidates).

    Great work environment as individuals were friendly around each other which created a positive atmosphere.

    Have not worked with anyone very negative. Only downside is managers sometimes are too tightly wound and create unnecessary stress/drama on engagements.
