      Pretty good work life balance depending on team / project, 401k match has gotten better in recent years, overall people are cool, kind

      FTI Consulting Response

      Thanks so much for your 5-star review! It’s especially heartening to read your Advice to Management to “continue progress on cultural issues”. Our CEO and Executive Committee members have recently hosted a multitude of Global All Staff calls and focus groups across the firm, and as a result, have introduced a number of initiatives and avenues for FTI employees to discuss, share, learn and get involved in our Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging initiatives. Our Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging page on Atlas is a great place to explore the depth and breadth of these strategies, and also links to our Corporate Citizenship portal.
