    Pros

    Overall the people at Daugherty are great. They are experienced professionals that know their craft. They employees themselves are great and the culture is very easy to assimilate into.

    Cons

    The leadership in Atlanta has changed over drastically in the last 5 months. The 6 top leaders all left at the same time to start up their own consulting firm, Aspirent, and has left the corporate leadership reaching at straws. So far their idea of fixing and righting the ship is somewhat laughable. They are reverting right back to being a staff augmentation shop where we are bidding on anything and everything just so we can "Grow". This is not what they sold to me. It's obvious to a lot of people that they are looking for "yes" men (women) to step into leadership that they can control from St. Louis. But be wary as it looks like they are firing or forcing out anyone who would object or question anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage people to speak their minds and bring some contrasting ideas to the table. This is how ideas and organizations grow. However, if you want people to just be cheerleaders for your brand and pretend everything is ok when we are hemorrhaging from multiples lines of service and losing business left and right to our competition than please do not do a thing.

    Pros

    Decent Base Compensation, Good Benefits, and Overtime Pay
    Great Sales Pitch
    Serious 'drinking culture' at the Atlanta office. (If you like to drink.)

    Cons

    Although Daugherty claims that North Highland is their closest competitor in the Atlanta Area, most services they provide could be handled by a temp agency. They provide all staff aug work at their 4 major local clients - not project based as claimed - and will take any opportunity as long as it is billable. Encouraged by team management to bill clients for Daugherty internal work - in my opinion just one instance of integrity issues with client billing. I've observed that the most successful consultants at Daugherty are those that the clients are most unhappy with. Serious 'drinking culture' at the Atlanta office. Must enjoy networking at company socials to find your next opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop stretching the truth beyond it's limits.

    Pros

    No travel. Good pay. Friendly people in the trenches.

    Cons

    No way to move up the chain. While I was there, 2 people were promoted to Principal level (basically limited partners). These were the first 2 people to ever be promoted to that level in the Atlanta office (15 years or so). Both left shortly after their promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within and stop trying to get a quick fix by injecting new management.
