    Pros

    Terrific culture, fantastic colleagues to work with, great client problem solving opportunities

    Cons

    Analytics and PM tools are evolving, not state of the art. But you as a new or existing employee can make a difference and lead necessary changes/investment

    I worked at Navigant full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked at Navigant for almost five years, Navigant has a lot of good people who are smart, motivated, fun, and dedicated to delivering excellent work. The company also implemented more flexibility for employees (flex-time, option to work remotely). Great opportunities and exposure to high profile clients if you are capable. My boss was supportive and a great mentor. The CEO visits offices and personally thank her employees.

    Cons

    Growing pain- middle management has to maintain utilization while training junior staff on or outside projects with tight timeline and budget leading to some overworked managing consultants and associate directors.

    Advice to Management

    Give more support/internal budget to project work training

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

    Pros

    (Warning: I have worked at Navigant for 4 months, but the consulting company I worked for previously, for 3 years, was recently acquired by Navigant). Navigant seems to really cares about the development of their employees. The management team puts in a lot of effort to assure lower level employees are given the opportunity and feedback to grow, and succeed. Navigant does a pretty good job of creating a culture that supports a sustainable work-life balance, which isn't common in management consulting. Although I have only been here for 4 months, I am pleasantly surprised with the emails our department receives when employees leave the company, as they employees have a very positive view. These employees typically state the following... 1) That they have been with the company for over 4 years, 2) that they love the employees they work with, and 3) that they learned a lot along the way. This is simply an observation, but still, a very promising one.

    Cons

    I haven't been with the company enough to give a negative. I am sure some will come about but at the moment I haven't been exposed to them.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice for management at the moment.

    Pros

    Great culture, pay, and cool projects

    Cons

    A little tight on budget

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees for hard work, most people don't go after the high utilization bonuses because if you calculate it out- it ends up being less than minimum wage to spend the extra time over 8hrs in the office.
