Great projects to work on especially in the Life Science sector. They were quite challenging with a steep learning curve from the beginning. Management was great for entry level consultants and accessible.

Navigant Review
Tier II Desktop Engineer-Public Trust Clearance (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 19, 2016
Navigant is a place for someone looking to get their hands on various technology and learn on the fly. Beware you are required to work beyond normal hours for their in house clients who avoid holidays in order to finish project. Depending on which pay scale you are on, you will be working for free after hours.
Pros
Free lunches from time to time

No Reason to Stay
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, NJAugust 18, 2015
The company is in a freefall. Corporate culture is non-existent and management knows this. Their attempt to have monthly meetings and team building exercises only exasperates employees who are under paid. Work is not challenging. Managers have very little understanding over daily operations. Come here for entry level experience, leave before you become a part of the furniture.
Cons
Poor management, Low pay, High Turnover

Security and advancement potential are low, work and compensation are good.
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 4, 2015
Work is dependent on clients, so security can be less than ideal, but that's the nature of consulting. Good people, good pay, great support when traveling. Work was a great learning experience.

Good environment
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 25, 2015
I was able to learn procedures. On my down time I would assist other departments, such as Marketing, with their initatives. I was able to teach co-workers programs that they were not familiar with. Using my skills and learning new ones was the most enjoyable.

You Control Your Destiny (sort of)
Managing Consultant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 2, 2014
The healthcare consulting division is "up and coming" in the overall corporation, with thoughtful leadership that considers future trends, but can get sidetracked by too many initiatives. A silo-mentality is prevalent, but seemed to be undergoing a change and, if successful, a change would go a long way towards making the environment and work culture much more valuable and interesting.

There is a somewhat entrepreneurial atmosphere where you can make your career as you choose - as long as your utilization remains high. As in any consulting company, utilization is paramount and if it's not there, you may not be either. But again, you can have some control over your career by stepping outside your silo and being assertive and proactive.
Pros
entrepreneurial spirit, great colleagues on teams
Cons
typically conservative thinking of larger corporations
