    Pros

    - friendly and supportive team - flexible work options/work from home - good medical/dental/vision coverage, RRSP employer matching

    Cons

    - small Canadian presence (but growing) - lacks brand recognition when compared with competitors like the big 4s but are well-known to someone who works within the industry

    Thanks for the terrific review and for drawing attention to the supportive team environment you've experienced here - it's exactly what makes FTI such a great company to work for! We opened a new office in Montréal within the past 6 months, so you are definitely correct in stating that our Canadian presence is growing!

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

    Pros

    Good infrastructure and communication between practices

    Cons

    As mentioned, the practice senior managing director (based out of country) was an utter failure and made the position (and practice) untenable. It disbanded rather quickly after I left.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at FTI Consulting full-time

    Pros

    - You will come across some great work every now and then, however you will need to come equipped with experience from a prior role to perform the work, because it is difficult obtaining help from management - Free soft drinks in the fridge

    Cons

    - Management has zero mentoring ability and shows no effort to care about the careers of lower level staff - Management does not really make an effort to connect better with lower level staff - No training provided at all - No feedback provided for work performed, and if you try to ask for feedback, most will act busy and avoid it - Work environment is de-motivating - Management rarely treats staff to lunches/dinners/misc.
