Regularly 9-6 work day
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.

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

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

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

Good company with management that means well, but hard to be a publicly traded consulting firm
Consultant/Senior Consultant (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAJuly 11, 2012
-Tend to hire good people
-Management doesn't always make perfect decisions, but seems to care
-Going public was a poor decision -- the public model is not a good fit for professional services consulting firms
-Typical struggles that go along with working for a very large consulting firm -- lack of transparency in decisions and compensation, risk of lay-offs when the economy is bad or when company is not meeting the street's expectations, cumbersome administrative requirements
Pros
good opportunities given the large size of the firm, good training
Cons
occasional layoffs, poor communication from upper management

Talented people but less competitive compensations.
Associate Director (Current Employee) –  Westbury, NYApril 12, 2013
Staff are generally competent and friendly. Good Work/life balance. Benefits are OK but compensation is not impressive. Cross practice cooperation is minimum and culture/value is not unified. It's a good place to start career.

Inconsistencies within management
Consultant (Compliance Tester) (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCApril 6, 2013
The typical workday is flexible, 8:30am - 5:30pm. You may arrive at 9:30am and leave at 6:30pm. All confidential information that cannot be disclosed. Therefore, everything learning are not transferrable skills. The management needs better structure. Co-workers had their own cliques. About 95% of the workers were recruited from top schools, and they carried themselves as though they worked as the CEO.
Pros
pay was great
Cons
everyone is expendable including top management. hence, no job security.

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.
