    I have been working at Navigant full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good global reach for mid-sized firm
    On paper, practice groups are complimentary

    Cons

    No communication...from anyone about anything
    Aggressive sales culture prohibits collaboration
    Lack of Leadership
    No enforcement of best practices or common go to market strategy
    No tracking tools adds to dysfunctional and backstabbing
    Very siloed practice groups
    Slow internal processes, many of which are unnecessary

    Advice to Management

    Talent is in place, yet an attitude of resignation is in place to the dysfunction due to your collective weakness as leaders. Revenue goals could be accomplished and exceeded by implementing and enforcing a standard approach that is practiced by all. Lack of education and understanding of various practice groups. Even admin pool have negative attitudes/do whatever they want.

    I worked at Navigant as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the Best reasons I found working there are the excellent and well versed staff. From the CEO to the very bottom-the janitor. Yes, that's how diverse they are with language, skills, assestments and general morale. They have a state of the art lunch and dining area. They provide the food and drinks and snacks. They have fun things you can sign up to do on weekends. Training classes. Seminars, Travel arrangements. The works.

    Cons

    I can't think of any downsides of working there. I had too much fun when I was there on a temporary assignment. Yes, they use temp agency to hire for overloads. My temp agency hasn't been able to get me back on with them, but If I could, I would.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management seems to know just how to prioritize and get the work down just by using some plain and simple reverse psychology tools that's been around forever. It works. Keep up the good work.
