    Pros

    Practices covering many industries (e.g. Finance, Economics, Healthcare, Energy, etc.) and presence in most major US cities. Great place to start right out of undergad or grad program.

    Cons

    Lack of direction and limited integration within practices and business units. Very little foresight in accepting projects and utilizing talent. Sterile office environment and unapproachable leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a communications strategy from leadership. Make more than a facile attempt at integrating business units and practices. Assess adequacy of compensation in relation to peer companies and adjust accordingly.

  2. Nothing remarkable, summer internship experience

    Pros

    Really fun, young group of people.
    Has a lot of intern activities.
    Lots of interesting projects and work with exciting travel opportunities

    Cons

    Lots of turnover, people are constantly in and out (I imagine they have their reasons).

    Pros

    Navigant has great people and everyone seems to be extremely bright and committed to satisfying the needs of our clients. There is a lot of growth especially in the Financial Services Practice

    Cons

    Not too much vacation time. Benefits are average at best. Coming from a huge bank, there is an adjustment of expectation that needs to occur.

    Advice to Management

    Work life balance is key. Be sure that compensation remains competitve so that you keep great people.

    Pros

    Compensation, "discretionary time off" policy for senior leaders is theoretically nice, expert co-workers, good office locations

    Cons

    Lots of change, meritocracy kills innovation by rewarding only those things that payoff right now and teamwork by promoting individual performance over the team, out of touch leadership which should be resolved with Goodyear's departure. No upward mobility for almost everyone on the staff. The job you have when hired is the job you'll have in 10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Need to find a way to entice teamwork and innovation without killing the generally helpful merit based culture.

    Pros

    Easy work, good work-life balance

    Cons

    No upward mobility, lack of transparency, unexciting work

    Advice to Management

    Don't string people along by starting them off as temporary. Acknowledge your employees' hard work. My previous review was removed so this is a re-post.

    Pros

    Very engaging, bright, and fun junior staff
    Very accomplished and intelligent managers
    Very flexible work hours
    Impactful, interesting, and challenging casework

    Cons

    Strict hierarchy
    Innovation does not seem to be a middle management priority
    Disconnect between executive team and junior staff
    Disconnect between executive team messaging/vision/goals and day-to-day work
    Below-average commitment to training/professional development/continuous learning opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Encourage training and professional development from the top down
    Embrace/encourage a culture of continuous improvement, innovation, and thought creation from all levels
    Create a culture where frequent, insightful (even informal) feedback is the norm, not the exception
    Re-align incentives (for all employees) to better match firm-wide goals/mission (e.g. if work-life balance is a priority, don't count company-wide holidays against utilization)

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule is nice

    Cons

    Siloed groups within practice areas, creates competition rather than collaboration. If not actively marketing yourself your work is easily overlooked.

    Advice to Management

    Create compensation, vacation, benefits package that is competitive. Plenty of great places to work in Boulder, Navigant should want to be known as one of them.

    Pros

    Interned with Navigant this summer and had a great experience. The firm was professional and let me dip my feet in higher level work. I got to work directly with a Managing Director, which was pretty cool since most interns barely even meet their higher-ups. They also went out of their way to make sure they planned fun events for us (the interns) and got exposure to a variety of practices within the firm. Met a lot of friends.

    Cons

    Sporadic deadlines, my supervisors often had to work long hours and come into the office on weekends. Other than New York , DC, and Chicago the offices are small.

    Thank you for sharing your internship experience. We work to ensure that our interns have an opportunity to experience all that Navigant has to offer and glad to see that you did.

    Pros

    They offer competitive benefits and a supportive work environment. I also found my co-workers to be very friendly and there was good camaraderie and team work.

    Cons

    The middle and upper level management tiers could be more transparent. The organizational structure also seemed somewhat complex, although this may have been due to the nature of the consulting industry.

  11. I like the company more than the specific department
