    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent company culture. Strong sense of collaboration. Many training opportunities available to continue to learn and grow. Most importantly, the firm is standing by its employees during Covid-19 and our CEO/C-Suite is doing an excellent job in communicating with staff about FTI's current and future state of business.

    Cons

    Long hours occasionally required but opportunities to work remotely help with work life balance.

    Thank you for the positive review! We agree with your observations - from the top down, the key to our business is our commitment not only to our clients, but to our team members. Because taking care of our team members is one of our core values, we’re always looking for ways to encourage growth and development opportunities, and to ensure employees feel valued, are treated fairly and respected.

    I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Love working with very smart, motivated and fun teammates on a global team. A culture of equal parts support and autonomy to create your own path, depending on how much you want to put into it. It's a real confidence booster, and makes coming to work, dare I say, a pleasure! Flexible schedule and remote work situations even before Covid 19. The amount of flexibility will depend on your team and /or engagement, but I'd say its more often the case than not. Compensation and benefits packages are excellent in this fast growing company. The 401k match is the best I've had in my career. Some phenomenal company events for networking - my favorites being FTI WIN (Women's Initiative) and WINtern programs, holiday parties and corporate giving through matching gifts, paid volunteer time, pro-bono work. For all the above reasons, and more, it makes me proud to tell my acquaintances that I work at FTI Consulting.

    Cons

    Potentially long hours depending on your project/engagement. But then you're rewarded for the extra effort, both financially and in recognition of a job well-done, so I'm not sure that's a con! Just be aware to set some boundaries on your time.
