    I worked at Navigant full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Project work can lead to diverse experience, and the majority of my colleagues were great people and very smart/capable. Projects provide a significant opportunity to make a positive impact on clients and the industry.

    Cons

    Regular leadership and organizational changes can make it difficult to understand your practice's plan or vision. While there are competencies for each level, interpretation can vary significantly between practices, making advancement difficult or unpredictable. Lots of acquisitions recently, and integration has been a mixed bag. Extensive travel can be difficult for some, but many consider it to be a positive.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on stability, and make more of an effort to develop staff and provide a more clear cut path for advancement.
