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

    Pros

    The people are generally pretty great to work with. The hours are not terrible, but it mostly depends on your client and the nature of the project.

    Cons

    It's very easy to get pigeon-holed into a particular area you may not be interested in, just because they need bodies to staff certain projects. However, this is the case with most consulting firms.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on developing your people's skills. While billable work is important, your staff need to feel like you are investing in their future as well. The more you invest in your people and the more you care, the more they will invest back into your firm.

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

    Pros

    You will be exposed to a a larger corporate institution which will be useful for future endeavors. You will also develop good technical skills that will be attractive for when you decide to work for a better firm.

    Cons

    Very regimented, bottom line corporate culture. You are a number in a pool of workers. Promotions do not come from hard work, but more when they decide to call your number. Rather quiet and uninviting work environment. And finally, a huge communication gap between consultants and directors. You are more looked at as property than a hard worker.

    As I said in the title, this is a good place to start your career, but don't stay here too long, there are plenty of better companies out there that truly value your hard work and will reward you for it.

    Advice to Management

    Promote employees when they deserve it, not when they're number comes up, and create a more work friendly and inclusive environment to keep talent there for the long run.
