Solid place to work
Office Manager (Current Employee) –  Washington, DC25 January 2017
Navigant hires bright, motivated people and gives them room to grow. Several training opportunities if you seek them out. Also, some practices are better than others at providing mentorship.

Culture is very collaborative in larger offices. Smaller offices tend to be single-practice, and up to that office's leadership.

Corp management struggles to meet demands of investors (bottom line) and still provide a place where directors have the flexibility to create their own practices.

I'd recommend this company to a self-starter, and willing to speak up for assistance, training, and guidance.

Productive and fun work place with ping pong table
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) –  Boulder, CO29 August 2016
Overall, it is a good and solid company.
However, the projects are assigned very un-usual way.
I sense that the projects usually goes out to anyone who is close to you and for the ones that are left out has to earn the project despite of their work performance.
Pros
Flexible hours with flexible locations
Cons
low compensation. weird project assignment

Excellent Place to Work
Sr IT Data Analyst (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CA19 July 2016
Navigant is a fast-growing enterprise, with many talented co-workers.

In my business unit, the hardest part of the job is the language barriers and cultural differences between employees.

Management can be a bit overly harsh, at times, when projects are running into a deadline.

There is little collaborative team work, in my business unit.
Pros
Big name employer, flex time, work from home option
Cons
Rancho Bernardo can involve a 45 minute commute from Mission Valley, at times.

Navigant Review
Tier II Desktop Engineer-Public Trust Clearance (Former Employee) –  Washington, DC19 January 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, NJ18 August 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

A typical work day at navigant consist of driving business to business on a timed appointment made schedule, and study there electricity running throughout the building. The only down plus about this job is that it isnt a full time position nor is there any full time positions year round.
Cons
No benefits and not full time
