What people are saying about Navigant

I was at Navigant for 5.5 years from consultant to manager. Worked in the FS group and did some TAS work across industries here and there. We were under the Guidehouse name for the last two years or so. In terms of resume, would folks suggest I use the Navigant name, Guidehouse name, or both? I know neither carry weight and I’m aware of the reputation of both, so no need to remind me, just curious if one would hurt less on the resume.

Just thinking about it, why wouldn’t Grant Thornton be excited to join Guidehouse? I bet there isn’t much of a change in benefits or position levels. If anything it will be the same or better. Has anyone from Navigant or Dovel noticed a difference?

I’m looking at o build a management consulting practice for an IT / Digital Transformation firm with $1B+ in revenue and very strong PE backing. What did I need to do to recruit a few healthcare tech partners from firms such as Guidehouse / erstwhile Navigant? I’d be looking the partners to bring in their own customers and teams / hierarchies. TIA!

I know we all think we are the best at what we do, but is there any folks from industry who would rank their perception of payer and/or provider management consulting firms? I know KLAS and the other "awards" do their thing, but would love to hear from actual buyers. Also interested where Guidehouse fits, given that we still have to mention or previous name (Navigant) to open some doors...

Everyone at theo firm is very friendly and the work/life balance is very good.
The corporate structure and employee benefits need to be improved
- 4.0Feb 25, 2014Senior ConsultantCurrent Employee, more than 5 yearsChicago, IL
-Complex, challenging engagements -Many young, smart people -Strong focus on training and continuing education -Flexible work arrangements, among other initiatives, are currently in the works
-Not a great work/life balance -Inefficiency is rewarded here; bonuses are based on utilization, rather than quality of work -Managing Directors can get away with some pretty appalling behavior if they're bringing enough business
- 4.0Oct 31, 2016Anonymous EmployeeCurrent EmployeeNew York, NY
- Company size - Exposure to senior leadership - Project diversity - Learning opportunities - Flexibility of work hours and places
- Compensation is not on par with boutique LS companies - Diverging cultures between different verticals of the company - Work life balance is not stable; sometimes very good and at times very unpredictable2
- 4.0Apr 19, 2012Anonymous EmployeeFormer Employee
- Friendly colleagues and senior management fairly approachable. - Strong expertise in certain verticals healthcare, energy etc. and a great opportunity to learn for junior level employees. - Good work/life balance options in terms of being abled to work flexible schedules - Reasonable compensation and benefits.
- Limited collaboration across practices and within certain practices because compensation structure for Ds and MDs is based more on achieving individual targets. - Challenging work environment at mid career stage where utilization targets are too aggressive which does not lend itself well to focusing efforts on business development initiatives that will get you to the next career stage. - Work in some verticals can get boring and junior staff at times may not have flexibility to develop skills beyond their sub practice areas.

Great coworkers with a lot of young driven and smart entry level employees.
Poor work/life balance; management does not work to keep their employees engaged and happy.

Great work/life balance (if you're in the energy practice)
This may not be an issue for everyone, but I would have liked to have a greater variety of projects
- 2.0Jan 14, 2015Managing ConsultantCurrent Employee, more than 5 yearsSan Francisco, CA
There is a lot of flexibility to do the work you are interested in and the flexibility to maintain a good work/life balance.
It is a very corporate environment which allows for people to fall through the cracks and promotes competition over collaboration.3

You can work remotely as needed and decent work life balance (both contingent depending on your supervisor and practice area).
-Very political -Tall organizational structure -Lack of a community -Lot of travel depending on your project -Compensation is not great
