    Pros

    Good work environment. Great opportunity to learn from experts in various topics. Room to advance through the corporate ladder. Typically entails challenging projects. Good compensation. Semi-flexible with schedule depending on the project. Annual bonuses.

    Cons

    Long hours prohibit a good work/life balance. Sometimes very stressful. Some of the health insurance benefits could be better.

    I worked at FTI Consulting as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Overall good experience. Work directly under MDs on projects. Will put you on the road for certain cases. Learned a lot about the lifestyle and nature of consulting from traveling and working directly with clients. Good pay.

    Cons

    If business is slow, work can be extremely boring. In addition, large learning curve to a lot of the work you will be doing, and not much training, even if you are a finance person.

    I have been working at FTI Consulting as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Decent rate for the work I do. Long project. Convenient, new offices. Some snacks, tea, coffee and milk provided

    Cons

    Bosses treat people at different levels differently. The non-stars get bad treatment. You can tell by the treatment what level you are. The direct boss is a passive aggressive snake, capable of any kind of low behavior, would rather complain to higher ups than talk to employees directly, would make you wait for things to get back at you. The snacks were wonderful at the beginning, now the feeling is that the crappiest least popular snacks are being ordered (don't get me wrong I appreciate what they provide, but why go from decent snacks to crap?). I think the popular snacks stopped being ordered because the people quickly emptied the supply, now the snacks remain. If I had another long lasting opportunity with the same pay, I would leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat people like crap, even the lower level employees need decent treatment. Also, stop with the passive aggressive behavior. Teach direct managers how to manage well.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people I worked with. People were friendly and smart. The work was interesting for the most part, and office was a nice place to work

    Cons

    Compensation was just average compared to the value you provide. The hours were kinda long as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward high performers better to retain better talent. Also, listen to your employees. If you have employees who want to travel, staff those people on the travel engagements vs people who are sick of it.
