    If you are a trained monkey who will do what they say when they say without question and are willing to rip off clients, this is the place for you. The company is extremely hierarchical and full of men who belong to the good ole boy network.

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

    Pros

    Eager senior executives seeking to develop stronger standardization across the delivery model and focus/coordinate the solution offering.

    Cons

    Integrated engagements are driven by M&A leadership micro focused on engagement issues and they do not focus on true root cause issues such as accurate and reasonable project engagement budgets.

    Advice to Management

    Get a true leader over the M&A group who has the ability to recognize root cause issues and form corporate culture versus knee jerk reactions at a micro engagement level.
