Current Employee - Managing Director in New York, NY (US)
Current Employee - Managing Director in New York, NY (US)

I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of freedom and responsibility quite early on regardless of level and experience.
Complex and challenging client problems on every project - SMD's do a good job of pushing team members to develop the solutions and present directly to the client.
Very much a merit based culture and "work hard play hard" attitude amongst teams.
Practice leaders understand what it takes to grow the business and are willing to invest in new service offerings and in team member development

Cons

Compensation appears fair and at market level but is not a transparent process
Experience and culture can vary significantly by practice and office - not enough consistency globally.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Come visit the core offices and make an effort to know your employees below the SMD level. Don't spend all your time in West Palm Beach.

    Pros

    A good place to learn some new skills. Able to work independently. Some performance managers are really great, however their enthusiasm gets hampered by the leadership. Co-workers are pleasant to work with. Social outings are nice.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance can be poor for staff in consulting roles.

    Lack of real advancement...just because you went from consultant to sr. consultant, to manager really doesn't mean anything.

    A lack of a unified vision between teams and departments really keeps the practices and products from improving.

    If you're hired, once the "honeymoon phase" is over, unless you've made it into one of the cliques, you're pretty much parked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good look at the middle management layers...the managing directors and senior managing directors. Those people are there to line their pockets and they may not really be concerned with the long term growth of the business. Look at the history of the stock price as an example, it's half the value it was in 2008.
