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

    Pros

    Great people
    Plenty of work

    I really enjoyed the culture and the people at Navigant. Only of the most welcoming communities and still feels like a small firm despite large growth (at least in the Healthcare department). Definitely feel like the firm is on the up.

    Cons

    Learning / development
    Compensation

    Still don't pay as competitively (but not bad) as some other top consulting firms and the learning/development process is still developing. Need to offer more/better training if they want to keep employees and hire top candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training young employees as the company grows from a boutique firm to a large, horizontal focused consulting company
