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

    Pros

    Great colleagues, good opportunity to learn all kinds of things, room for growth when it is earned.

    Cons

    Work life balance, but that's given the nature of the industry. Management does a decent job trying to help.

    I worked at FTI Consulting full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    They valued work life balance.

    Cons

    Budget constraints didn't allow for outside training as much as I would have preferred. They did offer a wide variety of e-learning experiences which was nice, but I wish I would have been allowed to grow my own career by working towards certifications.

    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Overall - people are friendly, ethical, kind and smart. If you are interested in turnaround and restructuring consulting, probably one of the best firms to work for. Work/life balance is pretty good. FTI is good about providing continuing education and developing talent. One caveat to all of the above that will apply to any large consulting organization, individual experiences might vary depending on what projects you are working on and who is on your project teams.

    Cons

    Bonus structure for lower/mid-tier employees is a black box - in theory it depends on how high your billings are, but no way of proving this. No stock options or stock purchase programs for employees.

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

    Pros

    - Diverse range of work and ability to move around teams if desired - Social events are very nice

    Cons

    - Pay is way below industry average, especially given the lack of work/life balance - PTO is not respected and is almost irrelevant - Promotions are very tough to get and very political. You are completely at the mercy of your manager. If they don't like you, you might as well leave the firm. - There is no training to grow staff. Even when it is available, you aren't allowed to participate unless it's a very special situation - Unethical place to work. I've seen countless examples of dishonest work, not to mention the multiple times the firm has been in the news for unethical behavior - No brand name. Nobody knows about FTI unless they are in the restructuring space. Completely irrelevant as a strategy firm.
