    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fully sponsor your ACA/ CFA
    Time off to study for the qualifications
    Variety of projects
    Work under industry leaders

    Cons

    Majority of the work is contentious, not meant for people interested in more generic economic advisory;
    Nature of work isn't too varied- most work involves some amount of valuation and actual/ coutrerfactual scenario analysis

    Advice to Management

    Would be helpful to interact more with junior levels of the team by giving them further opportunities to be a part of client meetings/ other communication.

    I worked at FTI Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work can be interesting at times, although not nearly as varied as it's made out to be.

    Cons

    Culture and environment are soul destroying and oppressive, with an entire team often working in total silence for whole day. Horrendous social politics within teams and between them. Treatment of graduates borders on abusive, with open discussion in front of them and the entire team about the cost of them and how they will get that money back out of them. FTI put on a good veneer, but it's a manipulative first world sweatshop. Expect to work 5+ hours more than anyone else in the team until someone else comes along that they can force to instead. I cannot list here all the ways in which the environment is made miserable and employees treated like donkeys.
    If these cons seem exaggerated, just look at the level of turnover for those in the first 3 years of their career.
    Also, the pay is below comparable PR consulting firms and bonuses regularly cancelled or reduced, regardless of performance.

    Advice to Management

    Total cultural overhaul. Your high employee turnover is not supernatural. It has been going on for years and until you start treating people with an ounce of humanity it will continue. Try getting managers to motivate and integrate employees instead of verbally abusing them.
