    I have been working at Navigant full-time

    Pros

    The people are really good to work with and there is a nice team environment. Very diverse, inclusive company.

    Cons

    The company could do a lot more to support a healthy work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Put people above profits and you will keep the turnover rate down, which is extremely high at this point even for a consulting company.

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

    Pros

    New location at 150 N. Riverside Plaza.

    Good Culture - fun, young people.

    Actively hiring people right now - looking to expand the healthcare consulting practice substantially.

    Cons

    Pay seems to be lower than average for Management Consulting.

    Navigant is public, lots of politics.

    A lot of people have a "grind until you burn out mentality"

    Advice to Management

    Increase compensation standards.

    "Healthcare Consultant"

    Pros

    Lot of learning opportunities under a very knowledgeable supervisor. Was involved in a variety of projects, which helped in many ways

    Cons

    Career advancement opportunities are limited. The company is still growing, but is promising to join as a beginner. If you are looking for a learning experience, this is the best place

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

    Pros

    Base salary was not bad. Some colleagues had a strong professional background and you can leverage any knowledge gaps from them.

    Cons

    Lacked effective leadership, diversity, and projects. There were not any major projects during my time at Navigant. Most of the Directors were a one man team or they had one junior consultant. None of the Directors or above were able to sell any of our services to clients, so people kept getting laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone should have a fair chance to succeed at Navigant. There should not be just one Junior Consultant and one Director per project. Everyone should be treated with respect and leadership should discipline those who do not comply to respect their colleagues.

    Keep doing what you're doing

    "A depressing workplace"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    1) The people that I get to work with are among some of the smartest folks I've seen

    2) Projects are interesting, complex, and full of learning opportunities

    3) Abundant trainings and courses available for employees to continuously develop

    Cons

    1) Do not even think about having a life outside of work. Now, this may vary depends on the group and people, but I have generally heard from several individuals from different offices and practices said that they are being overworked. Leaving on-time even during non-busy days are being frowned upon. If you value your personal time, do not work here.

    2)Lack of flexibility from employer's side. Employees are asked to be extremely flexible from all aspects in order to meet project needs and deadlines, but the desire for flexibility is not reciprocated. Working remote is strongly discouraged. Be prepared to make yourself available at all hours.

    3) Be aware of ruthless superiors. Big revenue generators in the company will get away doing whatever they want.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the voice of the employees. Get rid of toxic middle-upper managements.Sure they may generate revenue in the short run but you will lose the good, smart staffs who can actually execute the work in the long run. A general without good soldiers accomplishes nothing.

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

    Pros

    Work with C-Suite executives for to Hospitals and Health Systems in the country. Variety of solution offerings. Colleagues and leadership are industry leaders. Just became a billion $ company. While competitors are struggling, NCI is on the up.

    Cons

    It's consulting. So 80 hour weeks happen. If you don't like long hours or being on the road (i.e., travel), you should think about another profession outside of consulting...

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

    Pros

    The breath and depth of project
    The learning experience in the pharma, biotech and medical device space

    The exposure to clients
    Work life balance for a consulting company is good

    Cons

    Salary is low compared to similar firms
    The bonus is a joke
    The culture has been lost, it use to be a great place to work but now it seems that management does not care about peoples career, goals and to retain them, really sad

    Advice to Management

    I would take very seriously internal reviews and try to retain talent that is flying away
