    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Phenomenal team-oriented environment.
    Great culture, especially in the Construction Solutions practice. A great group of people who enjoy exchanging ideas and knowledge.
    Supportive environment that supports personal and professional growth.
    Work-life balance.

    Cons

    Management can get too focused on bringing outside talent rather than developing the existing talent pool.
    Compensation and benefits are not bad, but could be a lot better.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage out-of-the-box thinking and innovation in your employees.
    Focus resources on developing and properly compensating existing talent rather than pursuing outside talent.

    Pros

    This varies group to group, but there is a very healthy atmosphere at FTI. The company is making huge strides in becoming a major player in the management consulting realm. We frequently compete (and win) against the Big 4 firms as well as McKinsey, BCG, and Bain. Generous benefits and vacation with more than fair compensation. You can't trade the experience working here for anything.

    Cons

    As was said above, there is some variability within groups at FTI. Some are super fun and collaborative while others are more rigid and cold.

    Advice to Management

    Continue promoting a culture of cross-collaboration between groups in the firm.

    Pros

    The company let me directly work on the production software, Ringtail 8. I was placed on a team of experienced full-time employees and expected to contribute equally. Though the problems being solved may not be super challenging, the work environment was friendly and engaging.

    Technologies used here aren't the latest, cutting-edge ones used in the Valley
