    More transparency from corporate, more snacks

    I worked at FTI Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Huge network of people globally, great benefits, great exposure to many different areas of expertise. Obviously long hours in this business, but FTI does a good job at attempting to balance the work/life issue.

    Cons

    Knowledge sharing leaves much to be desired. Cooperation between teams and departments is lacking. The company was built by acquisition of many smaller firms, and still functions as a fragmented alliance, rather than a cohesive organization. Sales people from different departments are calling on people while they are already engaged with FTI. Poor transparency and communication.

    Advice to Management

    Need to keep reinforcing cooperation among the various teams. this starts from the top down. There need to be incentives for cross selling. Need to reassess the culture and values, and determine whether they really mean anything to the employees.

    Pros

    This is a company that values ideas and hard work. If you're looking for a place to make an impact and grow professionally then FTI is going to be a good fit for you. This company is actively trying to invest in their people and will find its way to success very soon.

    Cons

    Benefits package is status quo.

    Advice to Management

    FTI occupies a unique space in the professional services industry. Own that fact and keep doing things in your own way. Find that niche thing that makes you unique and run with it. Take benefits for instance: You don't have to offer the best benefits package across the board but if you make one aspect of your benefits better than your competitors then you'll have a significant advantage.
