Inexperienced Management and Lower End Compensation
Managing Consultant - Navigant McKinnis (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 11, 2018
I was very disappointed in the lack of experience in the management at Navigant. In addition to the lack of experience, they come across with a know-it-all attitude. It wasn't an ideal job, in my opinion.
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – February 8, 2018
Standard 9-5 job. Went in at 9 and left at 5. Learn about the business functions, government, and work environment. Great management. Great workplace culture. Great coworkers and great opportunity to learn.
IT Specialist (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 23, 2017
My typical day at work was filled with helping my fellow employees resolve their technical issues so that they could be productive and make money for our company. I learned patience and understanding and how to troubleshoot effectively for my customers. The hardest part of the job only occurred when I was not able to resolve the issue to the customers satisfaction due to not having the proper equipment they wanted. The most enjoyable part of the job was being thanked for helping someone when they needed it.
Good benefits, compensation, employees and managers
Not many I would work for them again if there was a remote position available
Records Assistant and Document Scanner (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 30, 2017
Professional atmosphere working in a cohesive environment. Everyone was very professional and I looked forward to going to work everyday. I worked in the Human Capital department scanning their human resources files.
Specialist (Current Employee) – Boulder, CO – February 23, 2017
The company strives for an all inclusive culture and promotes diversity. However, admins are often treated like second class citizens without the perks other employees have. Difficult to grow or move within the company and feel stuck. The administrative structure is based on formality rather than reality/needs.
Navigant is a great place to work. Very supported, diverse population where there are many practice areas to find your calling. Work life balance is applauded but strict deadlines also mean dedication to late nights and weekend work.
ADMINISTRATIVE SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Suwanee, GA – November 19, 2014
High turn over in this company. Management is very poor. They rule with an iron fist and threaten firing if you do not fall in line. I learned how to be guarded with trust and to document, document, documetn everything. Most coworkers were nice. The hardest part of the job is the oppressive culture. The most enjoyable part are those offices which had a social committee which did their best to try to bring a little bit of joy into the workplace.
Terrible culture, poor management and leadership, favoritism, non-universal support for education
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – July 29, 2014
No regard for work-life balance (in Financial Services and Valuation groups), high turnover Learning curve plateaus quickly, rate of skill development slows sharply after a short period of time due to lack of intellectually challenging work Less training than at other consulting firms, training that is provided is not applicable to actual work Politics plays a very big role in promotions Yearly salary increases are menial even when the company/practice is doing great Awful healthcare plans Hardest part of the job: coming in every day - the horrible work grinds more and more as time goes on Most enjoyable part of the job: nothing is enjoyable Worst things: the longer you stay, the harder it is to leave (lack of marketable skill development and valuable experience increases exponentially over time), absolutely no recognition for a job well done / extraordinary effort
horrible projects, not meritocratic, no skill development
