FTI Consulting - is FTI a good firm to work for (not heard much about them before)? TIA

I think it depends on group. I’ve worked at PwC and FTI. I like the culture more at PwC. But I find FTI to have impressively smart, driven people that I haven’t found elsewhere in the same way.


They are in growth mode, recruiting aggressively. Plenty ex b4 partners leading.


It’s a great place to work. I’m former B4 and IMO culture and comp is much better (may vary by group/office, but this is the same everywhere). In terms of Rx, we get a good amount of debtor side roles, many are not public. As for league tables, FTI is the #1 Rx advisor and has been for more than 10 yrs.


They’ve been another vendor on my engagements before - not impressed


Very good in restructuring, mostly creditor side though (not my cup of tea, but still a great career). Beyond restructuring they’re a step below big 4. In restructuring they’re tier 2


A1- For Rx, genuinely curious why you think T2 ? They are usually considered the same as A&M and AP, except as you mention that FTI has been more creditor-side historically, though as D1 mentioned this is changing. These 2 examples are not the only one when you look at the top 10 mandates in 2020, just the largest. The only one I could see as above are IBs (Moelid, HL, PJT) but they do a different work

It was good. All the senior people we’ve poached from Deloitte and big 4 have ruined the culture in some groups.

Desi folks (male specifically) - how have you dealt with marital issues? It’s unfortunate but men are not known to show emotions. Me and my wife have had so many issues. I also can’t initiate a divorce due to a child in our marriage. I feel like mentally I’m not in a good place and really lost on what to do. I’m constantly depressed, have contemplated suicide and just overall not in a good place but I’m keeping this all to myself and not talking to anyone
