    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1. Working with a number of great people, some have become dear friends.

    2. Refreshments on tap!

    3. Office is suitably located for high profile clients

    Cons

    1. Heavy clique-based atmosphere, and sadly senior management uses it as a basis for deciding promotions/bonuses rather than talent - if you're not in a favourable circle, you're opportunities are limited.

    2. HR are more concerned with protecting the company than the challenges that are faced by its employees. They can not be relied upon for support and often sensitive info "leaks", making an uncomfortable working atmosphere.

    3. Unclear promotion path can sometimes generate "dog eat dog" behaviour from colleagues. Again, if you're in a favourable circle, this conduct is overlooked.

    4. Very little budget for training, colleagues have funded their own courses which they take in their own time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See beyond your favourites, communicate and invest in all your staff. The sense of belonging and being part of a team rather than just a worker will keep people there!

    I worked at FTI Consulting full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with really bright people who want to do well for their clients. Individual teams work well together. Nice office, well located with good extras- stocked kitchen, help yourself drinks etc.

    Cons

    Highly silo'd mentality; individual business units so hard to understand where the company is going. Doesn't feel like the European business is going anywhere. Poor quality senior management; individually they are bright and inspiring experts in what they do but actual leadership is really poor.
    A lot of demotivated people in the heart of the business that can mean the mood can be flat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Join up the company. Open up your senior leadership 'club'.
    Treat people in the heart of the business better; more recognition and involvement.

    Narrow approach to human capital - accountant-driven leadership at it's least inspiring.

    Pros

    Great collection of people - very smart people under the hood.

    Cons

    As a company that quickly grew through M&As, they don't have a clear and winning culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't ignore the soft stuff of employee satisfaction. People will work for you if the money is good, but they won't follow you with heart and soul of they don't believe in you. Sounds like jargon but it's real at FTI.
