Good People Going Through a Transition
Sr. Consultant (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAFebruary 11, 2016
You will have an opportunity to work with great people, during a rough time for FTI. You will be managed out of DC, so therefore office politics are all virtual.
Pros
Great Colleagues
Cons
Shady Upper Management

Productive environment; fast paced, challenging
Director, Computer Forensics San Francisco (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAFebruary 1, 2016
Work life balance was poor and travel was required although not as much after development of local contracts/projects progressed. No assistance provided with training at all. Employee turn-over in late 2015 began to climb. Opportunities for advancement did exist. Management was inconsistent with some support and other times leaving employees adrift with no feedback. Management pays close attention to the bottom line and business development is priority number one.
Pros
high responsibility, freedom from micro-management
Cons
work life balance and training was neglected in favor of paying projects

Loved the job, not the culture
Senior Consultant (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCDecember 17, 2015
I really enjoyed the technology they utilized and my responsibility. Worked with the newest .Net platform with all up to date tools. Surrounded by smart engineers.

Main issue was the building conditions we worked in. For the revenue they drove, the lack of environment/culture was the concern.
Pros
Management was snart, employees are sharp, up to date tech
Cons
Terrible working conditions...building was no good and zero culture

Slow and quite work environment often having to find something to do
help desk technician (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAOctober 27, 2015
I did not enjoy working here, and when I broke my hand they fired me. I will not recommend working here to anybody. Often had to find something to do to stay busy, only support 100 people ,but most of the work from home so you really on support around 20-30 a day.

Casual consulting office

Short Stop
Operations Engineer (Current Employee) –  Annapolis, MDSeptember 22, 2015
Depending on the Job that you are working, you can get pigeon holed fast.

The management is generally to busy to focus on managing.

Co workers all have different personalities to deal with which is ok.

The night time hours.

The breaks and sometimes the work if it is challenging.
Pros
Learn the responsiblities of the job.
Cons
The mall is close so the breaks can be quite enjoyable.

Productive workplace with relaxed atmosphere
Senior Test Engineer I (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh PAAugust 5, 2015
FTI has always been a very relaxing place to work. The employees that work here are more of a 'family' than merely co-workers. It's a smaller office and therefore allows people to develop strong friendships.

Management at FTI however, is not good at communicating directives, changes, etc.

A good place to work if you are not big on a rah-rah culture
Director, Global Real Estate & Facilities (Current Employee) –  Annapolis, MDMay 26, 2015
A typical day can be very dynamic; filled with interesting work and smart people. If you are a consultant it is a great place to work with an obvious career path. If you work for Corporate it is a bit more iffy with a career path that is a bit muddled. The Company is in flux with a new C-suite so it will be interesting to see how the culture changes
Pros
Interesting work, good pay and benefits
Cons
muddled culture borne by mergers and acquisitions

Poor work-life balance and no mobility
Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Annapolis, mdApril 13, 2015
Bad work-life balance in corporate office. Unfair treatment. No mobility for most people. Management prefers to hire from outside as opposed to promote internal candidates. High turnover. No career path. Would not recommend.

High Motor, Great learning environment, Many opportunities, Global
Corporate Applications Engineer (Current Employee) –  Annapolis, MDJanuary 27, 2015
Member of a lean Enterprise application team. As such we deal with many applications, user request for technical expertise and customization. In a typical day I will complete a Disaster Recovery test, deploy a patch or release in the test and/or production environment, create scripts to glean information from databases, create a SharePoint site and resolve a dozen or so trouble tickets.
Pros
allows a wide range of applications to work on. work from home options. trainings are paid, and any equipment or software is provided.
Cons
can be stressful, difficult to rise within the company. better work from home and home-life balance is needed, company is global

Decent pay and horrible direct management
temporary consultant (Current Employee) –  ny. nyDecember 31, 2014
Pay is market for specialized temporary assignments, there are also paid holidays if enough hours are accrued for hourly employees. Direct management is pretty horrible. Examples:
Manager doesn't speak directly to employees about a problem, but immediately emails a long elaborate email to higher ups, giving major dress down. Once there is an email, an employee is automatically ignored if there was any positive interaction with the management previously.
The snacks that have been proven unpopular are supplied because otherwise people "hoard" the others (granted it's nice that there are snacks but come on is that the way to pick them??)
Misleading employees about performance.
Condescending treatment.
Constantly watch over employees.
Passive aggressive behavior, delaying respinding to requests from "disliked" employees
Hiring the nastiest people for administrators

The morale is pretty low. People are here only because no other better opportunity is available.
Pros
pay, some snacks, coffee, tea
Cons
horrible direct management

Design Consultant, Independent Contractor (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 15, 2014
The work consisted of reviewing court cases and creating persuasive powerpoint presentations for trials. The most useful skill I took away from this job was my growth in familiarity with Microsoft Office - particularly Powerpoint Presentation and the different possibilities of animation within it.
