FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) today announced that it has been named to Consulting magazine's 2018 Best Firms to Work For list, which is based on an annual employee satisfaction survey completed by more than 10,000 consulting professionals from over 300 firms. FTI Consulting placed in the top 10 in the career development, client engagement, leadership, work-life balance, and compensation and benefits categories.
"Being named a Best Firm to Work For reflects the core mission that we are on, which is to ensure we are leveraging our deep expertise to help clients successfully navigate their most significant challenges," said Steven H. Gunby, President and Chief Executive Officer of FTI Consulting. "As we do so, we are winning the biggest assignments in the marketplace and therefore are able to provide powerful, exciting work and growth opportunities for our people, which in turn allows us to attract and support a talented and committed group of professionals. All of this makes the future of our firm incredibly bright."
Earning a top spot on Consulting's Best Firms to Work For list follows other workplace honors for the firm this year. In April, FTI Consulting was named to Forbes magazine's list of America's Best Management Consulting Firms for the third consecutive year in 18 sectors and functional areas.
In May, FTI Consulting and its Compass Lexecon subsidiary were recognized as firm of the year in four categories at the annual Who's Who Legal Awards ceremony in London. FTI Consulting was named Consulting Firm of the Year, Arbitration Consulting Firm of the Year and Investigations Forensic Accounting Firm of the Year. Compass Lexecon was named Competition Economics Firm of the Year.
In June, Compass Lexecon led the Who's Who Legal: Competition 2018 – Economists list, with 42 professionals recognized for their expert testimony in complex antitrust matters and advice on intricate matters of competition economics. In addition to having the most experts of any firm named to the list, Compass Lexecon had the most individuals recognized as Thought Leaders.
In July, FTI Consulting and Compass Lexecon led the Who's Who Legal: Consulting Experts guide for the third consecutive year with 144 professionals recognized, more than twice as many as the next firm. These experts represented the firm's Corporate Finance & Restructuring, Economic Consulting, Forensic & Litigation Consulting and Technology segments and hailed from 18 countries around the world.
Earlier this month, FTI Consulting was named Global Turnaround Consulting Firm of the Year for the fourth consecutive year and honored with 21 Turnaround Atlas Awards by the Global M&A Network.
For the boss you loved, the coworker you hated, and everyone in between
Two things are inevitable when someone leaves your team at work: there will be an abundance of sweet treats (I'm partial to those giant cookie cakes from the mall) and there will be a card passed around for everyone to scrawl the professional version of sweet nothings in. Depending on the "importance" of the person, you may get the bonus activities of farewell gifts and/or an all-team champagne toast.

Whether you are a software engineer, fitness enthusiast or both, you won't want to miss PowerToFly's evening of product demos and networking with the women tech leaders and allies at Peloton.
Founded in 2012, Peloton brought top talent together in its Silicon Alley headquarters to create a new concept in fitness. In their words, "We loved cycling but had a hard time finding a workout that consistently fit our schedules, and our at-home workouts never felt quite up to par. So, we set out to create a world-class indoor cycling studio experience on your time, and in the comfort of your own home."
This event is your chance to hear directly from the women tech leaders and allies who make their revolutionary products like the Peloton Bike, Peloton Tread and Peloton App possible. We'll be devoting a large portion of the event to taking your questions and I know the Peloton team wants to hear from you!
The unique evening will take place on Wednesday, February 12th from 6pm to 8:30pm at 125 W 25th Street.
