Firsthand Findings

FTI Consulting operates along the classic consulting model: wherever the client requires assistance, that's where you'll find the firm's consultants, for as long as is necessary to get the job done. While that might not translate to great scores for insiders on hours or travel requirements, most accept this as the tradeoff for getting to do the kind of work they enjoy. 

That feeds directly into one of the key benefits for consultants at the firm: exposure to tough, often high-profile cases, particularly in finance and economic consulting. These create opportunities to learn new skills on the job, and are sometimes cited by employees as being superior to the firm's formal development offerings. &...

About the Company

FTI Consulting has grown from a small forensic consulting firm founded in Annapolis, Maryland, in 1982, into a global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance enterprise value in an increasingly complex legal, regulatory and economic environment. The firm was founded as an alternative to the Big Four—back then, the Big Six—but over time, with the turmoil in world markets, the advent of Sarbanes Oxley and the emphasis on transparency and objectivity, FTI Consulting has had a great impact on world affairs in a variety of different capacities. With more than 4,600 employees located in 29 countries, FTI Consulting has grown to become a market-leading global consulting firm by serving as a trusted advisor to its clients in both good and bad times. From headline-grabbing engagements, including the Bernie Madoff investi...

Employee Reviews


  • "FTI is a relatively large firm. Individuals that are self-motivated and willing to actively manage their career will do well at FTI."
  • "FTI is uniquely positioned as a firm, within the notoriously demanding professional services industry, that truly values your career development and well-being. You never feel like just a cog in the machine at FTI, and your worth (no matter what level) goes way beyond the billable hour. Working at FTI for a first job has spoiled me in the realm of professional services: I feel like my ideas are valued through all levels of the organization, and I am never made to feel less important because of my level. FTI is a great place to work, with challenging and interesting work, intelligent people, and a culture that truly cares about you."
  • "The quality of the staff members is the best I've encountered. No corporate drones here. Hard work and innovation are rewarded."
  • "There is a clear long term investment in our people at FTI whereas most other firms grind their new hires down to their bones to the point of being miserable. The turnover here in terms of headcount is far less than other firms I interviewed with."
  • "While FTI's brand may not be the most well known, we work with the most high profile, biggest companies in the world on a daily basis. Our culture is fantastic and the firm is loaded with talent and a long-term focus on developing our people. Compensation is competitive and highly merit based. Speaking with any senior manager at the firm will show that the firm is going places and the outlook is extremely positive from our CEO."

Getting Hired Here


  • "I am not familiar with the call back process, just that we are very good at following up with a 'yes' or a 'no'. The ideal candidates are those that can leverage past experience and expertise, depending on level, in order to contribute to the diverse portfolio of project that we work on."
  • "My office's interview and callback process is pretty straightforward, quick, and relatively easy. Our office tends to like quirky people who aren't too well polished (to appear insincere) and can interact with different types of case managers well."
  • "The interview process is different for whatever level a candidate is interviewing for, but my process as an entry-level (but not intern-level) hire was very thorough. I interviewed with almost every member of my ~20 person team, and the process ended with an in-person interview and tour of the office. I appreciated the thoroughness of the process, as I felt I talked to different personality types and got a good feel for who I would be working with. Additionally, the firm was extremely flexible with start dates and locations, choosing to work with me throughout the process. The ideal candidate that FTI is seeking at the entry level is someone who is smart, good at writing, hungry for new information, and has a love of learning."
  • "This depends on the practice area but generally our internal recruiting people are organized and make sure the candidates are moving through the system."
  • "We seek someone who will roll up their sleeves and get the work done. Mental horsepower is important but FTI seeks candidates that will do whatever it takes to achieve an aim."
