    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at FTI Consulting as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits and location

    Cons

    Prison camp environment with cameras on you and prison guards, sorry, project managers and room monitors always watching over you in case you commit the crime of revealing your cell phone. Project managers, with one or two exceptions, are petty people who act discriminatorily in favor of those they like without regard to merit. Many people hate working there, including me, and would never go back. Avoid this place, unless you are willing to sacrifice your dignity and self respect for $24/hr.

    Advice to Management

    Review the track record of your project managers you will unearth the misery they are dispensing and learn why so many hate working for FTI.
