I have been working at Navigant full-time (More than a year)
I've worked in one of the healthcare sub-practices for over 2 years now. Overall, it hasn't been a terrible experience, although I'm not thrilled with my job either. The biggest benefits have been work-life balance and limited travel. But those vary considerably depending on your project and manager.
The company is so segmented between different offices and practices (and even within those practicies) that it's impossible to describe a typical office or employee. Some of the frustrations I've encountered are monotonous and repetitive work (you can only format so many Excel spreadsheets before you start hating it), unclear reasons for staffing or moving from one project to the next (if performance is an issue, please raise those issues with staff, just be transparent about why), bonus structures (it's based almost entirely on your utilization rate, which is billable hours / total hours, so good luck if the directors in your practice haven't sold enough work to keep everyone busy). I know the pay is a bit low compared to some of my friends from grad school with similar careers, and from my conversations with other/former co-workers getting low-ball offers seems to be common with recent grads. Some of the managers have a repeated and highly annoying tendency to take a long time to review projects you've sent them, only to send them back with "can you address this ASAP" at 5pm.
Advice to Management
Either ensure that associate directors and above review work in a timely manner (not sit on it for a week and then send back on a Friday afternoon) or empower staff to work with less oversight. Offer staff more ability to seek out projects on their own with different practices that need staff instead of telling them to sit around on the bench for weeks while you find work for them.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Navigant.
The process consisted of a networking event the night before the interview, which was 2, 30-minute interviews. Four weeks later I learned that I did not receive an offer. The interview was for a technical consulting internship.
