    I worked at Daugherty Business Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Opulent Buckhead office
    All of leadership (Directors, VP) from former Big 4 (heavy on E&Y), working toward getting the career mgmt process to be similar
    Local work only, with new option for travel if desired
    Salary, health plan
    Great for Custom Dev (.net, java) and PM work
    Paid OT

    Cons

    Lead Recruiter, a great saleswoman, is a bit misleading on expectations
    Many levels, expect to start at levels below your prior employer
    If you are technical manager, you won't be told, but should expect to write code.
    Reality is, large amount of 'staff aug' (they won't call it that) work.
    BI LOS - limited enterprise level, thought leadership BI work. Mostly DM layer work or could be anything to do with moving data around (e.g. application integration)
    Directors (most) are not 'though leaders', but account executives who can sell services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Atlanta VP needs to filled by someone with more experience.

    Pros

    Good salary
    Good Benefits
    No Travel
    Good culture

    Cons

    Limited to no opportunity for overtime (10-15% was pitched during interview)
    Vacation is horrible - 2 weeks for 17+ years of experience
    Expenses are a joke - so many caveats make it almost impossible to get reimbursed (they make you subtract 20 additional miles for any reimbursement, just beacuse)
    It is staff augmentation not management consulting
    Bonus is a joke too - $17 per month of service

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be clear on job interviews, tell people what it is and what it is not (it is not a consulting company), maybe it is for systems, but not a management consulting firm

    I worked at Daugherty Business Solutions

    Pros

    * Good employment packages
    * Good work/life balance
    * Good leadership (except company has restructured too frequently)
    * Good place for Project Managers to work

    Cons

    * Atlanta branch is mostly a management consulting practice now
    * Very little technical work
    * Projects are, on the whole, not very exciting
    * While some gigs are project based, much of the projects I worked on leaned more towards staff-aug

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus less on management consulting, more on cutting edge project work.
