    Pros

    Competitive pay + very good pay rise (just a bit light on the bonus) High profile clients + companies + projects Good atmosphere in London office among junior staff ( lunch break all together, Friday drinks, etc) Some very smart directors with excellent network in industry allowing you to work on top notch projects

    There can be periods with long working hours (although relatively good for the consulting sector) Some directors (not all) do not look after their team enough With a new push to expand team, some recent questionable hires

    I worked at Navigant full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    ADVICE: DON’T ACCEPT A JOB OFFER, YOU WILL QUICKLY COME TO REGRET IT!!!!!!!!

    Cons

    Literally from the moment I would approach the Navigant building in the heart of London, my heart would sink, knowing that I had to enter that horrible and nasty environment. It’s an American company, so naturally the senior management think they can ignore UK employment laws, because they don’t have any in the USA. There is a weird atmosphere in the London office, nobody talks to each other. Everyone works hideously long hours and is it any wonder all the employees are miserable. The workload is unbearable, targets impossible and senior management are nasty bullies. They bring in contractors, and then they all leave as soon as they realise what a complete mess the organisation is. New faces come and new faces promptly leave, I don’t blame them that’s why I exited at the first available opportunity. It is a place where your mental health will suffer terribly, don’t expect any of the management to care. ADVICE: DON’T ACCEPT A JOB OFFER, YOU WILL QUICKLY COME TO REGRET IT!!!!!!!!

    I have been working at Navigant full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They hire from very diverse/different backgrounds (teachers, lawyers, bankers, sales, IT), plus, top performers straight out of school (mostly with a graduate degree). Most employees speak more than one language and have interesting experiences. The company assigns mentors to new hires, cleverly adjusting mentors' performance expectations to allow time for this critical activity. Mentors are volunteering for this role and most are really supportive and great at their own jobs. Culture is very supportive/caring and constantly thinking about the mission that the company is driving (in my case, it is fighting financial crimes). The culture is also transparent with work-specific and company issues discussed openly during lunch breaks. Senior executives are also very approachable - they do periodic meet & greet for all employees. The firm is well managed which comes with a tight performance review culture. The management is adept at sizing up new hires quickly and suggesting the right project fit. Many negative reviews here are likely from people who struggled with challenging work - I know many such people personally and they were fun co-workers but couldn't manage the complexity of client requests and information analytics. Under-performing employees are given plenty of opportunities to recover and even had a chance to move to a less demanding role. But at the end of the day, fighting financial crime is an increasingly complex profession where AI/tools are playing a larger role, so this is not for everyone. In our location (NYC), we are provided with free fruits twice per week, plus, a nice selection of coffee & tea. There are regular interesting sponsored events (soul cycle, rock climbing). Finally, for high performers, the company pays for your certification and training..

    Cons

    The pay for NYC is average, not complaining, just don't expect an extra generosity. They seem to sign up for too much of client work and are struggling to get the business model right which results in lower profitability - which means lower salaries, little of annual salary increase, and no bonuses unless you are the highest performing employee. It would also be nice if we could get Friday lunch and maybe a monthly happy hour to create opportunities for employees to gel more.

    Pros

    variety of project types in the core industry for someone who wants to a broad exposure to a specific industry - great learning opportunity

    Cons

    1) seems to be no real standard when hiring someone with regard to the level they come in at, or the salary 2) no clear promotional path - staffing & utilization, roles and project feedback are all based on who you know with clout will advocate for you - people who do great work may not get hours or promoted 3) very old school on-site travel requirements and lack of wlb in some segments/business units. time for Navigant to do more than pay lip service to putting their people first
