FTI offers a challenging work environment which helps with career progression. The FTI work environment allows you to explore different expertise areas and gain experience with different skillsets. There is no micro-managing. Therefore, you put into your career/role what you get out. You must be highly motivated!

    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.

    I worked at FTI Consulting full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    They valued work life balance.

    Cons

    Budget constraints didn't allow for outside training as much as I would have preferred. They did offer a wide variety of e-learning experiences which was nice, but I wish I would have been allowed to grow my own career by working towards certifications.
