    Pros

    FTI invests a great amount of resources into training its recent grad employees.

    Cons

    Management is not transparent. Feel mislead about the type of work I was told about during the interview process and what I'm actually doing now. Many offices feel more like an old boys club than a modern, professional environment.

    Pros

    Flexibility. Depending on your position, office and team, there are opportunities to work from home (or remotely) and work flexible hours.

    Cons

    Everything is political here, and there is very little diversity. They overwork you, and do not fairy compensate you with the benefits or salary that you deserve. Overall company culture is okay, at best.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your support services staff better. Although getting the bottom line work done is important, keeping your employees happy and hungry to work hard is important too.

    I worked at FTI Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    the pay is pretty good but it is all given to the people at the top.

    Cons

    I am a former HR employee and I saw it all behind the scenes. This company is so unethical in the way they do things. If you or a loved one is sick and need time off the company culture will not support you. If a loved one dies you are expected to return to work after 3 days. So many people are leaving the company because of the poor company culture. DO NOT BE FOOLED!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the corporate people in HR Department in Annapolis.

    Pros

    Great people who are smart, down-to-earth and possess innovative thinking.

    Cons

    If you don't have a Consulting background, it will be a challenge to get caught up to speed due to minimal training of the "FTI Way" for experienced hires.

    Find the proper development situation for experienced hires.

    Pros

    control your own destiny type of environment. Small organization, so you do meet a lot of folks within your service line.

    Cons

    Health Services never felt like it had the right vision and directions of where it wanted to go. Leadership was saying wanted to be more in health IT space, but most resources were converted industry staff. Many layoffs last summer after posting record quarter earnings.

    Low utilization across healthcare, but layoffs did not focus on utilization metrics. Many let go with good metrics, but they were not hired by right person

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring managing directors to lead groups that can't deliver and force reductions in workforce to support their salaries! What have you done lately? Not what did you do a decade ago.....
