    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time

    Pros

    FTI Consulting looks good on a resume
    Snacks in the office

    Cons

    Terrible culture throughout the firm. Some segments have better culture than others, but overall it's a poor work atmosphere. Upper management does not provide clean and concise expectations for junior staff. Work-life balance doesn't exist. There is an extreme lack of continuity.

    Advice to Management

    Instill some sort of positive culture and work life balance. Also give guidance on how to progress your career and don't play favorites.

    Pros

    The Consultants are among the best in their industry and people there are highly intelligent.

    Cons

    The company changed since I first started there 6 years ago. The company is going through major changes since the new executive team joined and there is no clear vision. The company acts as a holding company for 6 business segments so there is no consistency or collaboration across the firm.

    Advice to Management

    You need new leaders in the support services and to build out your support teams.. Need to develop a culture of trust across the firm.
