    I worked at Navigant for less than a year

    Pros

    The team was well resourced and had exceptionally intelligent leaders. Lead by example.

    Cons

    One of the main contracts was for a government agency, which meant that the development time for major projects was exceptionally long. As an intern this meant not being able to see the results of your work.

    I worked at Navigant for less than a year

    Pros

    The internship program is great in terms of giving you fun activities to do and helping you get to know the company. However, the level of responsibility it fairly low and you end up not really learning a ton. The people are great and the compensation is solid however.

    Cons

    This is specifically within Disputes and Investigations, but some of the work depending on sub-practice is very tedious work, and it's also hard to move around sub-practices - you get locked in to one for at least 1-2 years.

    Awesome place to intern at. They really do a great job at getting you the necessary experience to propel yourself into a successful career. The people are amazing as well and a great pleasure to work alongside with.

    Cons

    The salary (especially in Washington DC) is not ideal depending on what kind of degree you have.

    I worked at Navigant for less than a year

    Pros

    Good intern program. Very supportive and good events. Help you to understand the entire company with weekly lunch talks given from different divisions. Co-workers are very understanding of the interns and respectful at the same time.

    Cons

    A little boring work (just particularly my division). As an engineer working in energy department, not very exciting and a little bit separated from the other interns

    I have been working at Navigant for less than a year

    Pros

    No formal training program means that it truly is a baptism by fire. Mentor program is good for the interns, but they have no sway in terms of a formal offer.

    Cons

    In my contract I was told that any hours worked over 40 would be time and a half. Commercial projects mean that many weeks we would be working 50-70 hrs per week, but I was directly told by my manager to not input them into the system. After speaking with other employees about this, it seemed that this was very normal for interns to be scammed out of their overtime. The reason is because the managers undercut the competition on pricing projects in order to win them so that there is no money for overtime. When I finally told the HR coordinator about this at the end of the internship, I was told to input them all in (on my last day). My manager (before knowing I inputed overtime), said that he wanted me to work there full time. After this happened, I "suddenly" was not given an offer. This is because the projects that I worked on with him now were over budget, which made him look bad.

    We appreciate the candid feedback. I’m sorry you did not have the best experience at Navigant. We will be incorporating more guidelines to project managers about their interns' hours to ensure there is no confusion in the future.

    Pros

    Overall it was agreat learning experience, the directors have high expectations, but the experience depends on practice your placed in.

    Cons

    It seemed like many of the employees had either negative or neutral feelings towards upper management and the firm in general. That was particularly disappointing as in consulting, the employees ARE the firm

    I worked at Navigant for less than a year

    Pros

    Got to meet and talk to some very high up managing directors on a daily basis; experienced conference calls with high up executives; many intern events that allowed a casual environment for the interns with the employees.

    Cons

    The internship is only eight weeks long

    All the people at Navigant are amazing. The upper level management is easily accesible. People are always willing to help you. Stress-free, cooperative environment. The work can be very interesting and you get a great deal of independence. Alot of activities for the interns.

    Cons

    Depending on the group you are placed in, your work may seem a little tedious at times. However, the overall cases are very interesting.

  10. "Great Company to Work For"

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

    Pros

    There is interesting work at all levels of employment. If an engagment is small enough, you may have the opportunity to learn new skills and being involved at all levels of the engagement. There is lots of diversity in your day to day projects and tasks. Very friendly culture, not an overwhelming feeling of seniority.

    Cons

    Often 40+ hours a week, but that is typical given this type of work. Parking is very expensive and the metro in DC isn't that cheap either.
