    Pros

    The people at Navigant cannot be raved about too much. Everyone is kind, welcoming, and fun, in addition to being incredibly smart. The work is very important, and you learn valuable technical skills really quickly. People are wiling to depend on your work early if you prove yourself, and everyone is always available to help you out personally or professionally.

    Cons

    The work is repetitive and not well-suited to creativity. Management promotes largely based on time, not merit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Providing young, ambitious employees quick opportunities for growth would go a long way to retain top talent. Varying responsibilities and cases would help too.

    Pros

    Great firm, great leadership, flexible with working from home, with many high profile clients in a variety of industries. Transparency as far as advancement and placement is also a plus

    Cons

    People are spread out across the country, which can make interaction difficult, hard to coordinate. Also makes for a less collegial atmosphere as you call to chat about work, not much else

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Office culture is decent, training was very little, could be improved.

    Pros

    They hire really talented mid-level consultants

    Cons

    Management has no direction, overwork staff and seem not to care about the high turnover. Little quality work in Financial services and as a result senior staff likes to hog the meaningful work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop grooming the same type of people for success and embrace employees who bring diverse skill sets and work experience

    Pros

    Company allows you to seek out opportunities you are interested in. Lots of smart people working on interesting and relevant problems.

    Cons

    Still can be a stuffy, corporate environment with standard corporate training, meetings, and mind-numbing performance evaluation processes. Training leaves a lot to be desired.
