    I have been working at Navigant full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This review is for the Banking, Insurance, and Capital Markets (BICM) group. Variable compensation can be very high and is transparent / aligned to key metrics (i.e. performance rating and utilization). It is a smaller firm when compared to Big 4, Accenture, etc. so there is less bureaucracy and more access to senior leadership.

    Cons

    Utilization expectations are much higher than comparable firms. Essentially anyone at the Associate Director level or below is expected to be utilized 100% of the time while taking on greater responsibilities in the areas of practice development, sales, and leading internal initiatives. This leads to burn out among the Managing Consultant / Associate Director group as they have to work long nights and weekends to keep up with all internal and client demands.

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

    Pros

    Perks that come with travel are great, which is a huge Pro when you’re gone every week.

    Cons

    Senior Leadership is closed minded; nepotism and favoritism are rampant and spread like the flu. Heaven forbid you have a different idea because you actually KNOW how to help a client, if you voice it you’re blackballed and you will be “laid off”

    Pros

    Leaders focused on growth and mentoring but people in the middle aren’t following the same lead.

    Cons

    Too many toxic MDs and Ds in healthcare management who have picked their people and they only promote them and give them chances only . Management doesn’t address negative behavior of those individuals. - too many green people being promoted too fast and lack skills to do their work

    Eager senior executives seeking to develop stronger standardization across the delivery model and focus/coordinate the solution offering.
