    Nice office, bright colleagues, big clients

    I was told by my manager that all employees should have a 'poker face'- it was not acceptable to be authentic and a very hierarchical environment felt quite oppressive

    Thanks for sending in this review - we're glad to hear that you give your colleagues, our CEO and our clients high marks, but sorry that some of your experience felt less than ideal to you. It's difficult to tell from your review if you're still working with us, but if so, we encourage you to speak with the HR Business Partner for your group about your experience.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Highly motivating; very respectable and specialist leadership team; caring employees and leaders; engaging and interesting workload; everyone is incredibly loyal and truly believes in the work they are doing; massive appreciation shown for hard work and dedication; it definitely doesn't go unnoticed that the team is very well looked after!

    Cons

    The supporting services could be improved for instance finance, IT, HR and facilities. Also there are some very old, time-consuming systems that really need updating/changing eg. Carpe Diem for time-entry and Chrome River for invoice entry. Lastly, there is a ticketing system used for all the services eg. IT, which is very poorly designed and it would be much easier if they got rid of it all together.

    Awesome! Thanks so much for the review and for so eloquently describing the positive atmosphere and culture you've experienced at FTI, and at our London offices in particular. We also appreciate hearing about areas for improvement. As we've grown as a firm, we regularly review our software systems and vendors to make sure they meet/exceed our current needs. I'm sure we'll continue to see tweaks/updates in the future! Thanks again for taking the time to post this impressive review, and for all the great work that you do!
