What Employees Say
I have been working at Navigant full-time for less than a year
They hire from very diverse/different backgrounds (teachers, lawyers, bankers, sales, IT), plus, top performers straight out of school (mostly with a graduate degree). Most employees speak more than... one language and have interesting experiences. The company assigns mentors to new hires, cleverly adjusting mentors' performance expectations to allow time for this critical activity. Mentors are volunteering for this role and most are really supportive and great at their own jobs. Culture is very supportive/caring and constantly thinking about the mission that the company is driving (in my case, it is fighting financial crimes). The culture is also transparent with work-specific and company issues discussed openly during lunch breaks. Senior executives are also very approachable - they do periodic meet & greet for all employees. The firm is well managed which comes with a tight performance review culture. The management is adept at sizing up new hires quickly and suggesting the right project fit. Many negative reviews here are likely from people who struggled with challenging work - I know many such people personally and they were fun co-workers but couldn't manage the complexity of client requests and information analytics. Under-performing employees are given plenty of opportunities to recover and even had a chance to move to a less demanding role. But at the end of the day, fighting financial crime is an increasingly complex profession where AI/tools are playing a larger role, so this is not for everyone. In our location (NYC), we are provided with free fruits twice per week, plus, a nice selection of coffee & tea. There are regular interesting sponsored events (soul cycle, rock climbing). Finally, for high performers, the company pays for your certification and training..
The pay for NYC is average, not complaining, just don't expect an extra generosity. They seem to sign up for too much of client work and are struggling to get the business model right which results... in lower profitability - which means lower salaries, little of annual salary increase, and no bonuses unless you are the highest performing employee. It would also be nice if we could get Friday lunch and maybe a monthly happy hour to create opportunities for employees to gel more.
Advice to Management
Slow down growth until you are able to manage economics and hiring better. As you could see from these reviews, in your rush to grow, you are hiring too many employees who are lacking abilities for... such demanding profession.
