Perfect fit

3.3 of 5 stars

Experienced in Health Care and/or Pharmaceuticals | Indianapolis, IN | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Flexible schedule and interesting work

Downers

I usually feel "out of the loop"

Great place to work for a career in energy consulting, with unique opportunities and very smart people, but highly dependent on the group you are in.

Industry specialization, work/life balance, interesting project opportunities

Downers

Uncompetitive pay, hit or miss depending on the group you land in

Comments

Internal mobility is not easy, so make sure to accept a job with a description that fits your interests

Depends on the project- "Project availability communication lacks substance"

The people I work with - They are awesome

Downers

To many unknowns relative to the direction the firm is heading in

Comments

I think is it very important to stress the any candidate that is interested in a consulting position that;
1. Having a relationship could be a challenge if the partner is not 100% committed to the candidate being on the road
2. One must be prepared to work 80 hours plus
3 There is nothing glamorous about weekly travel
4. They must be passionate about making a difference
5. They be prepare for the client that doesn't think they need outside help.

Interesting work, but little emphasis placed on wellbeing of employees.

Midlevel in Energy & Utilities | San Francisco, CA | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Good compensation, interesting/challenging work, good location, good work/life balance.

Downers

Not flexible, not many perks, little interest in employee wellbeing or development, little collaboration between groups

Comments

The firm is very much divided into it's different practice areas, and within those practice areas it is very divided into sub practice areas. Thus, there is not very much overlap in terms of work between the groups. This is a downfall in terms of missing opportunities for collaborating and it causes a lack of a sense of being part of the firm as a whole. Employees feelings are therefore specific to the sub practice they are in.

so far, underutilized, disorganized, reactive more than proactive. Much emphasis on sales, little on leadership.

Good compensation; great environment to work on new ideas

Downers

Our stock price gives rise to serious questions about our long-term future.

Come get a really solid intro to the Business and Energy sectors, improve your technical skills, meet people, and make money for stockholders!

3.3 of 5 stars

Entry-level in Energy & Utilities | San Francisco, CA | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Very minimal weekends/overtime, good amount of projects, generally interesting/relevant/worthwhile projects, IT, all-around professionalism, my current office peers

Downers

Disorganized culture, feeling that the goal is to make money rather than to produce good work product, callousness to personnel issues, bad mix of top-down and team-level organization

Comments

You will have to be your own advocate, and that can be hard.
Pretty good place to spend a few years out of college and learn the ropes.
There is not an overarching culture - it will be luck of the draw to some extent.
Not as collaborative as one might like.
Navigant cares a lot about its image, and will enact policies accordingly. Some of these turn out to be awesome, most you will never actually experience effects of.

Navigant cares more about their shareholders then they do about their employees

ability to be virtual

Downers

they often get rid of employees without warning when work slows down including higher level such as Associate Director

Comments

have a strong advocate who can protect you when they are looking for people to terminate when the work slows down. All focus is on making shareholders happy and meeting projections, not on keeping employees.

Too new to make that headline

Always talk to current or former employees if you can.

Succeding in spite of the lack of firm support.
