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

    Pros

    Great vision and diversity/inclusion initiatives. Good benefits. Good if you are a Sr. Consultant or above.

    Cons

    Same problems most large companies face - Top executives don't really know what's going on with the "little guys," Managing Directors are expected to be treated like royalty, entitlement based on title/role. Administrative staff is treated like second class citizens, despite the efforts of management to make compensations - but the reality is admins aren't as important as "billable" employees (even though they are the glue that keeps everything together). Administrative structure is strange and there aren't opportunities for much growth or movement. Accounting needs an overall attitude adjustment and billers deserve more recognition and appreciation for their hard work.

    Advice to Management

    All employees should be treated more as equals and there should be more employee recognition (all levels). Admins should be assigned to support practices rather than the operations umbrella. Many administrative assistants feel out of the loop.
