    A company who promotes excellence, Then once you work for them they lie to you and treat you like dirt.

    Pros

    Benefits are hands down the best. 3 weeks vacation, plus 2 weeks sick and 2 floating holidays, cheap medical and other benefits.

    Cons

    They pay you like crap, no advancements. If you work in the medical field this is not the place for a guy to work. This company is extremely sexist. Hard to work for.

    Pros

    Interesting project work (sometimes)
    Generally good compensation
    Flexible work location

    Cons

    Pace and expectations of output for junior employees are often unrealistic.
    Senior management can be hard to work with.
    The worst manager I've ever had was promoted from a pretty high level to a really high level while I was employed.
    Project management processes were old and bureaucratic

    Pros

    Great place for staff to get some good experience
    Good Forensic Accounting Practice
    Good Global Investigations Practice

    Cons

    Compensation Structure is weighted to the Managing Directors, Directors are second class people.
    Biggest competition is the guy sitting next to you, no collaboration. (AT ALL)

  8. Decent company but don't stay too long if you're ambitious.

    Pros

    A lot of flexibility and remote opportunities available within the Corporate Services teams.

    Cons

    IT is not viewed as a strategic partner of the firm, although it has some talent to fill this role. Navigant doesn't refresh their technology, so to stay relevant with cutting edge technology, ambitious employees will leave after a couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    If Navigant's IT Departments business objective is to stay status quo, then change nothing. If leadership has a vision to be more innovative, strategic directors should be brought in who are empowered to make real change.

    Pros

    Practices covering many industries (e.g. Finance, Economics, Healthcare, Energy, etc.) and presence in most major US cities. Great place to start right out of undergad or grad program.

    Cons

    Lack of direction and limited integration within practices and business units. Very little foresight in accepting projects and utilizing talent. Sterile office environment and unapproachable leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a communications strategy from leadership. Make more than a facile attempt at integrating business units and practices. Assess adequacy of compensation in relation to peer companies and adjust accordingly.

    Pros

    Really fun, young group of people.
    Has a lot of intern activities.
    Lots of interesting projects and work with exciting travel opportunities

    Cons

    Lots of turnover, people are constantly in and out (I imagine they have their reasons).

    Pros

    Navigant has great people and everyone seems to be extremely bright and committed to satisfying the needs of our clients. There is a lot of growth especially in the Financial Services Practice

    Cons

    Not too much vacation time. Benefits are average at best. Coming from a huge bank, there is an adjustment of expectation that needs to occur.

    Advice to Management

    Work life balance is key. Be sure that compensation remains competitve so that you keep great people.
