    I worked at Navigant full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    One of the best professional working environments I've ever worked. Opinions and skills were valued by my supervisors and subordinates. I was allowed to grow professionally and contribute to the growth of the organization.

    Cons

    Often times over-utilized (too much work, not enough time). Which is a good problem to have - the extra work/demand was recognized in bonuses/promotions, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more clearly to all staff strategic direction.

      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Navigant full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Most people are approachable. Compensation tends to be higher than market.

      Cons

      The BICM group is not well run and is not selling. Upper management is pretty selfish and money motivated and will throw employees away to achieve their goals. There are not always opportunities for everyone. If you are on the bench you could be there your whole time at the firm and just be let go. A lot of people are dissatisfied and leave.

      Advice to Management

      Understand that the people you treat poorly are potential clients. Treating people poorly to make more money is being pound foolish and penny wise.

      "GIC Consultant in NYC - Large project"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Current Employee - Consultant in New York, NY
        Doesn't Recommend
        Negative Outlook
        Approves of CEO

        I have been working at Navigant full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        1) Lots of on-site training; 2) Good opportunity to enter the field of compliance as a recent college or someone looking to switch careers; 3) The information that consultants work with is very interesting and varied each day

        Cons

        Be careful of big projects where most of the consultants are recent college grads. I know that each project is different, but for this one, it's very difficult to manage the quality and quantity of production. There is a general culture of fear and stress because the weekly quota is prioritized above everything else. Communications with management can be conflicting and intimidating, especially with the production rate....

        Advice to Management

        Please work on supporting the project's consultants at each level. The expectations of the project can be better managed with more encouragement and less negative reinforcement.

        Doesn't Recommend
        Neutral Outlook
        No opinion of CEO

        I worked at Navigant full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Interesting work, diverse environment, efforts were made to feel connected to various other parts of a large company

        Cons

        There seemed to be a good amount of favoritism in the particular division I worked in. The potential for success hinged greatly on being the "right" person - training or resources weren't readily provided. Often projects had very little time to be completed.

        Advice to Management

        More clear direction, pay more attention to who is in charge of smaller groups.

        Pros

        Really interesting projects, opportunity to travel, decent comp

        Cons

        No work-life balance and place is run as cult of personality depending on which practice you work for as Navigant grew through acquisitions.

        Advice to Management

        Give experienced hires, especially AD and up, the freedom to run their projects as the experienced professionals they are. You trusted them enough to hire at their level so stop treating them like junior consultants. Also, what's the point of holding team calibration discussions if senior management just ignores the consensus decisions make makes final decision that is often contrary to the calibration results.
