    I worked at Navigant full-time

    Pros

    Convenient to public transportation, nice offices, amenities in building such as restaurants, gym and bank. Admins get overtime.

    Cons

    If you wanted to be treated like a small child (instead of a professional) go work at Navigant. The EAs at this company are treated like neglected stepchildren. Even with a long career at Navigant or anywhere else the senior level staff have no respect (younger ones worse). Only 2 WEEKS of vacation (only position at Navigant that has this restriction - no negotiations). Mgmt expects you to act like a consultant and know the business. They watch you like a hawk via an IM program. Everyone else comes here with packages, sign on bonuses, negotiated vacation, large salaries but not the admins. They will higher you for one job then pile people on you. Give summer hours but don't be fooled because you have to make up the whopping 4 hours you get to leave early.

    Advice to Management

    If you respected the admins then maybe everyone else would follow. Unhappy overworked admins make your senior execs less productive. If we could have taken work off their shoulders they could produce more. Helloooo.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    None, avoid this place at all costs...

    Cons

    Management is more interested in churning out employees and taking a cut from the subcontracting companies than actually doing any substantive work. The office is rife with politics so watch your back. The DC office is a perfect example of this.

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

    Pros

    On first glance this company seems to have values and commitment to employees. They encourage volunteer activities for community events.

    Cons

    Working as a remote employee you do not get to share in the "company culture" and you are subjected to the mercy of your managing director.

    Advice to Management

    Stop all the silos. You need to be better at creating the company culture that can spread out to your remote employees and have more opportunities to be engaged with the company.

    Pros

    Couldn't find any - suboptimal medical benefit. some staff was "protected" for no reason I could perceive, it certainly wasn't based on contribution to the project.

    Cons

    Horrendous turnover with many not even making it to 6 months, low morale, dishonest senior leadership. Poor leadesrhip and client management at the project level.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize staff, communicate accurately in recruitment because lies are revealed day 1 on the job. Sell work you can actually deliver so turnover on projects will decrease

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

    Pros

    Benefits are hands down the best. 3 weeks vacation, plus 2 weeks sick and 2 floating holidays, cheap medical and other benefits.

    Cons

    They pay you like crap, no advancements. If you work in the medical field this is not the place for a guy to work. This company is extremely sexist. Hard to work for.

    Pros

    Easy work, good work-life balance

    Cons

    No upward mobility, lack of transparency, unexciting work

    Advice to Management

    Don't string people along by starting them off as temporary. Acknowledge your employees' hard work. My previous review was removed so this is a re-post.

    Smart people. Not much else.

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

    Pros

    Many nice people overall, mostly below senior management levels. Good presence across US. Good place to start off career at consultant level.

    Cons

    Long hours expected and appreciation for sacrifices not readily acknowledged. Management seems to change strategy fairly often. Actions do not always match communications. Promotions are hard to attain.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to strategy (not just in words but in actions that support same strategy).
