    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

    The Company has great benefits depending upon where you fit within the organization.

    Cons

    The company headquarters being located in Washington DC actually creates a greater than average government-mindset. The politics are worse than in most companies but any mature-minded person can navigate them quite easily. Most younger careered individuals may find the environment rather challenging to navigate.

    Advice to Management

    Management and Leadership are not necessarily congruent. There are many managers within this company but very few leaders. Because of this, there is nothing I am willing to share with the management because of concerns it would fall upon deaf ears.

    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.

    Pros

    Upper management is almost never around

    Cons

    Middle management is left to do what ever they want and it is far from ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to being individual contributors; I am sure you are probably better at that.

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

    Pros

    I enjoy the people I work with. Lots of opportunity for interesting projects. There can be growth in the company pending on what work you do. Our segment is well organized. PTO and benefits are good!

    Cons

    Work load is highly dynamic, where it's either too slow or overly stressful. With that, Work-life balance can be variable. In most cases, I end up working on PTO and always checking emails. Sometimes you feel overworked and underappreciated. High turnover rate for younger (upcoming) consultants.

    Advice to Management

    Some people are good supervisors and great to work with, where others are not willing (or able) to take on that task. Be sure mentors and people with management power are willing to step up to be available to consultant level employees.

    Challenging and dynamic work

    Cons

    No equity except for a select few
    Bonuses could be higher
    They should rethink their approach to travel policies
