    I worked at Navigant for less than a year

    Pros

    Navigant Consulting is a great company to work where you will learn new methodologies every day and gain valuable experience everyday. The Financial Services and Disputes practice is the best department to work for and no day is boring and every employee (full-time, part-time, or contractor) are valued as team members.

    Cons

    The drawback at Navigant Consulting is the Valuation and Financial Risk Management Practice which can be a hit or miss depending who you are working with. I would strictly recommend inquiring who you will reporting to. I would recommend not working with a senior consultant. The senior consultant does not treat contractors well and is not properly trained on how to deal with employees and gain respect. She tends to turn to the "blame game" philosophy when something goes wrong instead of trying to fix the problem. She does not know how to train employees and shelves out incomplete information and expects you to figure out the rest. She was put in charge of a project and was extremely disorganized considering the project was being worked on for six months before we were contracted. I would definitely recommend not working with her and then the Valuation and Financial Risk Management can be definitely interesting.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Navigant for more than a year

    Pros

    Work in a nice part of DC.

    Cons

    Terrible training. Disorganized workplace. Extremely uninteresting work. If a recruiter tricks you into this, you're probably overqualified for the work. My next consulting job pays me 2.8 times as much and I actually enjoy it. This a great place to earn $17 an hour for never seeing a human being, tagging mortgage documents to get banks out of trouble for the loan crisis. Nobody who gets this gig is actually hired on permanently.

    Current Contractor - Risk Analysis Consultant in Washington, DC

    I have been working at Navigant for less than a year

    Pros

    Work is easy, insanely boring data capture, page bookmarking. Work without lunch. No career path upward. They did warn me that I wouldn't like any part of their work but I can't wait until my new job starts at McKinsey.

    Cons

    Very poor training, boring work that will not build your resume, lower than industry-pay.

    I have been working at Navigant for less than a year

    Pros

    Comprehensive training program, competitive, yet collegial, culture, employees from diverse and interesting backgrounds from all over the world.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency (particularly with respect to senior management), lack of long-term vision and structure to develop and promote staff, inattentive middle managers.
