    I worked at Navigant full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the best professional working environments I've ever worked. Opinions and skills were valued by my supervisors and subordinates. I was allowed to grow professionally and contribute to the growth of the organization.

    Cons

    Often times over-utilized (too much work, not enough time). Which is a good problem to have - the extra work/demand was recognized in bonuses/promotions, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more clearly to all staff strategic direction.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating employees better. Respect goes both ways.
    Address the toxic atmosphere and look for ways to create and improve team morale.
    Stop the constant trashing of certain employees which is regularly heard on the office floor.
    Get rid of the blame culture which only promotes the negativity and toxic atmosphere.
