    I have been working at Navigant full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive pay + very good pay rise (just a bit light on the bonus) High profile clients + companies + projects Good atmosphere in London office among junior staff ( lunch break all together, Friday drinks, etc) Some very smart directors with excellent network in industry allowing you to work on top notch projects

    Cons

    There can be periods with long working hours (although relatively good for the consulting sector) Some directors (not all) do not look after their team enough With a new push to expand team, some recent questionable hires

    I worked at Navigant full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    ADVICE: DON’T ACCEPT A JOB OFFER, YOU WILL QUICKLY COME TO REGRET IT!!!!!!!!

    Cons

    Literally from the moment I would approach the Navigant building in the heart of London, my heart would sink, knowing that I had to enter that horrible and nasty environment. It’s an American company, so naturally the senior management think they can ignore UK employment laws, because they don’t have any in the USA. There is a weird atmosphere in the London office, nobody talks to each other. Everyone works hideously long hours and is it any wonder all the employees are miserable. The workload is unbearable, targets impossible and senior management are nasty bullies. They bring in contractors, and then they all leave as soon as they realise what a complete mess the organisation is. New faces come and new faces promptly leave, I don’t blame them that’s why I exited at the first available opportunity. It is a place where your mental health will suffer terribly, don’t expect any of the management to care. ADVICE: DON’T ACCEPT A JOB OFFER, YOU WILL QUICKLY COME TO REGRET IT!!!!!!!!

    I worked at Navigant full-time

    Pros

    Free Diet Coke Some great colleagues Opportunity for diverse work

    Cons

    Bullying is a tactic used by management to pressure people into giving up time at the weekends and work unsociable hours. Blame rolls down hill with usually junior members of the team getting the blame for problems occurring at the project management level of the work. There is management but no leadership, all short term goals with no term strategy.

    I worked at Navigant full-time

    Pros

    Nice offices and facilities. Free Diet Coke. Good company benefits Decent and hard working colleagues who will often pitch in to help peers who are working non desirable hours and to assist complex cases. Opportunities to travel to some interesting countries and work on varied projects.

    Cons

    High turnover of staff. Bullying goes unaddressed, even when reported to Senior Management. Very little training or development. “Junior” members of the team are expected to regularly work long hours, weekends, and public holidays to ensure ridiculous deadlines are achieved and receive very little appreciation or respect. Project managers are afraid of “pushing back” and are just “Yes Men”. Very little Consulting. Management are reactive as opposed to proactive. No team morale. Toxic atmosphere. Terrible blame culture. Project Managers look to pan the blame on those at lower levels instead of taking responsibility.
