    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Access to online training. Good life/work balance in the summer months. Snacks in the office.

    Cons

    The firm paid me a $4k annual bonus at a mid-senior level, which is ridiculous in this industry. The company also doesn't value its employees - I was laid off due to reduction in headcount right in the middle of the coronavirus outbreak, which left me without insurance and income in such difficult time. I never received any coaching, I had a formal coach, however, he never discussed my performance with me. The company isn't really interested in your development, I was invited to teach financial modeling at an educational center, however, my SMD told me that I should not do that "at my level". No real collaboration between groups and segments, no teamwork. Lack of projects

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at FTI Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    FTI is a growing consulting firm and pays much better than the Big 4 firms on both base and bonus. You also have the ability to to get staffed on projects outside of your assigned service line when on the bench if you request it. Additionally, while the senior leadership is unprofessional, most of the staff and directors are very engaging and enjoyable people to be around.

    Cons

    FTI has a lot of work to do in terms of streamlining it's processes. Tools for time/expense entry are lacking and make admin tasks needlessly time consuming. Furthermore, promotions at FTI are very political and training is non-existent. Moving up often involves being a yes man and getting on the right projects with the right managers. This isn't like a Big 4 firm where simply delivering quality work on time consistently is enough for a promotion. FTI has vague criteria for what constitutes "exceptional" work and making director or beyond is moreso based on the clout of the people you do or don't have in your corner and what they say about you during promotion time.
