    Pros

    On the surface, there are a lot of great things about Navigant Consulting: many of the people are very smart and very hard-working and dedicated to doing a good job for clients. NCI has a professional environment and pays reasonably well. But, your situation at Navigant largely depends on which practice you are in. (Navigant has several disparate and unrelated practices that don't fit together easily in a coherent whole.)

    Cons

    There is no way to sugarcoat this: employees are completely expendable at NCI--much more so than at most other companies. As a result, the culture is extremely unhealthy at Navigant. Both voluntary and involuntary turnover at NCI is very high and Navigant is very quick to let people go. Moreover, Navigant is extremely callous when it terminates personnel. It is difficult to state how much more disrespectful/disdainful/dismissive Navigant is to its employees compared to most other companies--the lack of consideration is way off the charts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most companies speak the line: "employees are our most valuable asset". Navigant could not say that with a straight face. The first step toward fixing a problem is acknowledging that you have one, so let's call a spade a spade: Navigant does not respect its employees. Navigant uses and discards employees (quite unceremoniously) more than most other companies, and until this changes Navigant will not be a healthy place to work and the culture will remain broken.
