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

    Pros

    – Good health and dental insurance – There are some really nice people in the office

    Cons

    – No work life balance, you are expected to work and be available at all times, though I appreciate this is practice/segment dependent – To this end, the salary is on the lower end of acceptable for the city – Although they say otherwise, they are not flexible working friendly. Again, this is likely dependent on the Practice/Segment, but nevertheless those working in administration should be very aware, particularly returning parents – High turnover and no accountability when the cause is senior management. Some of the practices are terribly managed and this is common knowledge throughout the firm, yet so long as these individuals are generating business/making money, a lot is swept under the rug

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Firm wide employee initiatives should be enforced across all locations, Segments and Practices of the business, no exceptions. It is no good if they only apply to your fee earners in practice. There are service lines selling excellent and sound advice that they are not following in their own teams and there are visible consequences which should not be ignored. Your reputation is only as good as your SMDs’, so ensure each one of them is representing the firm as they should be internally as well as externally. Just do better in caring for ALL employees.
