    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.

    Pros

    Great place to start career

    Cons

    Political. Promotion and career development can be hard if certain key decision don't like you. Career development, bonuses, can be easy if you are liked by the key decision makers.

    Practice groups operate in tight silos and rarely mix, which makes it hard to feel the "corporate culture".

    Advice to Management

    Be more inclusive and more transparent to all.

    Pros

    I worked at Navigant, in their Energy Efficiency & Policy Analysis group, right after graduating from college. It was an excellent place to start my career and develop skills and earn experience in the consulting world. The team I was on was truly great, and the people tend to be dedicated and very smart.

    Cons

    Suffered a bit from being too big in terms of obnoxious corporate policies, at times. As I mentioned, the small teams I was a part of were great and if that was the extent of the company culture I think this place would be ideal-- but too often there were training courses you'd be sent to that didn't end up being relevant, too much big picture looking as opposed to seeing how it affects individual careers/projects, etc. But that's a minor group in the grand scheme of things

    Advice to Management

    Work to reward your well performing employees earlier and more aggressively, rather than everybody who is there for X years ends up with the same bump.
