    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. They really care about your growth and development.

    Cons

    As FTI is mainly a consulting company. So being a developer can sometimes feel a little strange from a corporate level. But they are developing great software, and it is a great team to work with.

    I worked at FTI Consulting full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very competitive salaries with decent yearly advances and a competitive discretionary bonus program. Above average employees can easily see 10 plus percent annual bonuses. Lots of PTO (more than many can actually use). Decent benefit package.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunities for continued advancement - especially for those who work out in the business segments as opposed to those who work for corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on long term goals instead of worrying about how the next quarter will look in terms of EBITDA and margin. I survived four rounds of layoffs at FTI which were all due to upper management getting freaked out about margin and demanding the segments cut employees to lower costs. As a result the segments lost a lot of talent and were poorly positioned to take advantage of future opportunities.

    "Tech segment in a rough spot, overall FTI is sound. Review is focused on Tech."

    I worked at FTI Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers were smart and experienced.

    Cons

    There is a good ole boy network. If you aren't in it or connected to someone that is, getting ahead is difficult. The Tech segment hasn't made money in many quarters. Recent attempts to sell the segment led to courting several suitors who backed out and those that did place a bid did so at a very low valuation. Recent attempts to lower costs to improve the financials seem desperate at best. Morale is currently low.

    Advice to Management

    Tech management is not clearly communicating goals and the tactics being used to achieve them.

    I worked at FTI Consulting full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the smartest people I've ever worked with. The work is challenging and interesting. IT support is spectacular.

    Cons

    Very little mobility. The select few "golden children" get fast-tracked through the organization. Others stay stuck in the same position for years.

    Advice to Management

    Don't tell your employees that their opinions don't matter. Trust your employees to do the right thing. Don't micromanage. Recognize when entire departments of employees are leaving, that it's likely the manager they're leaving and not the job or the company.
