    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Base salary was not bad. Some colleagues had a strong professional background and you can leverage any knowledge gaps from them.

    Cons

    Lacked effective leadership, diversity, and projects. There were not any major projects during my time at Navigant. Most of the Directors were a one man team or they had one junior consultant. None of the Directors or above were able to sell any of our services to clients, so people kept getting laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone should have a fair chance to succeed at Navigant. There should not be just one Junior Consultant and one Director per project. Everyone should be treated with respect and leadership should discipline those who do not comply to respect their colleagues.

    Pros

    Easy to get exposure to and recognition from upper management;
    Managerial support for career goals;
    Merit-based recognition

    Cons

    If it's your first job, you have to, "put in your time," in the trenches

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    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

    Pros

    - Company size
    - Exposure to senior leadership
    - Project diversity
    - Learning opportunities
    - Flexibility of work hours and places

    Cons

    - Compensation is not on par with boutique LS companies
    - Diverging cultures between different verticals of the company
    - Work life balance is not stable; sometimes very good and at times very unpredictable

    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

    Entrepreneurial environment. Great camaraderie. Good work life balance. Happy employees.

    Cons

    Continue to hire well qualified people. Do not allow nepotism or legacy folk to remain in the company if they are not adding new value.
