    I have been working at Navigant (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The breath and depth of project
    The learning experience in the pharma, biotech and medical device space
    The people that you work with
    The exposure to clients
    Work life balance for a consulting company is good

    Cons

    Salary is low compared to similar firms
    The bonus is a joke
    The culture has been lost, it use to be a great place to work but now it seems that management does not care about peoples career, goals and to retain them, really sad

    Advice to Management

    I would take very seriously internal reviews and try to retain talent that is flying away

    Advice to Management

    Management should improve training opportunities for junior staff and encourage more collaboration between different practices. This collaboration should not only be focused on the D/MD level.

    Pros

    NCI has a great technology practice supporting individual projects as well as projects from other segments. The staff is dedicated and very knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Senior management doesn't support and encourage staff. Firm has relocated the NY office and shrunk employee space and reduced privacy. Mid-level staff and lower are working in a bench-like environment.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your managers, trust them, encourage growth and support staff. Shrinking staff space doesn't help moral or the work get done. A cost cutting effort that affects junior staff to the benefit of senior management.
