Not a great company for career advancement
Senior Consultant, Healthcare (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 3, 2015
I currently work in the Healthcare division within Navigant at the Senior Consultant level. The organization suffers from a poor career pathing process and undeniably under-utilizes junior staff. This has led to the typical tenure of Consultant and Senior Consultant level employees to be 1-2.5 years because the organization does not understand how to retain talent by either compensating them adequately or helping to develop them. The division often wins innovative work in the healthcare space such a ACO and CIN development, Bundled Payments, and varies other strategy projects, but junior staff are not typically assigned these projects and when they do, they are often utilized as administrative assistants responsible for editing and printing meeting materials and doing analysis versus actually being integral to strategy development, which many of us are capable of. On a positive note the company is very collegiate among the junior level staff and has good name recognition in the healthcare industry. But ultimately it is a springboard versus an organization you can really grow your career.
Work from home flexibility, floating holidays, friendly culture.
Poor compensation, lack of career advancement, poor management.
