    I have been working at Daugherty Business Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    After working for top 3 consulting firms for over a decade, I decided to make a move to a local model boutique consulting firm "Daugherty", 3 reasons why I true love my career at Daugherty:
    - When they say " Work Life Balance, they truly mean it with great benefits-their medical is the best in industry
    - Great clients including list of fortune 500
    - Above all they are picking up cream from top consulting firms, so you are surrounded and talented people who value family life, work life and hate big 4 politics

    Cons

    When you work with any company of its size you are bound to face the following challenges/opportunities to improve:
    - Not all Policies and Procedures are matured
    - PTO not too great but frankly speaking even though I had great PTO package in a top consulting firm, I could never take advantage of it anyways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good job and don't give up on the core values of this company as we grow

    Pros

    Enjoy a stead work/life balance while gaining a ton of experience, picking up state of the art skills, expanding your communication skills.

    Also, the free food & beverages, great peers, social events, and after hours learning opportunities are a plus.

    Cons

    Client work comes and goes, so you will have to be patient in-between projects. Don't worry though bench-work will keep you busy. ;)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Negotiating more vacation days would be a HUGE factor to change during the hiring process.

    *This one perk could spike your retention and prevent talented candidates from accepting other offers. Think about it, 1 or 2 weeks of additional vacation in return for talented candidates that could potentially revolutionize your future business for years to come.

    Pros

    One of the key benefits of working at Daugherty is the local business model (no travel).
    This company is very focused on excellent client delivery and has an excellent reputation.
    The management team is great to work with and they really want you to succeed. They try very hard to place you in assignments that fit with your career plans.
    The firm is small enough that you can make a big contribution to the growth and success of the firm, but big enough to have a good portfolio of clients and a growing range of technical and strategic solutions.
    The health benefits plan is the best around.

    Cons

    The vesting period for the 401k plan should be reduced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on treating your employees well.
    Improve the 401k plan vesting period.

    Pros

    Daugherty is a growing local consulting firm that is focused on making a real difference for clients, while matching their consultants with career growing opportunities. Work-life balance and innovative thinking in the areas of Business Intelligence as well as a defined methodology in business process and analysis make Daugherty an exciting place to work.

    Cons

    Daugherty is a growing brand in the consulting market. It does not yet carry the name recognition of the Big 4 firms, however the motivation of leadership and caliber of talent will help build that over the coming years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the consultant's core strengths AND passions when matching them with roles and opportunities. This will only increase team productivity and dynamics, leading to our shared success!

    Pros

    What Daugherty Business Solutions brings to the table is different from most other consulting companies. They are excellence focused - hence the aptitude. They espouse a culture of delivering value - hence making you invaluable to the customer you're consulting for. And they are small enough, and growing rapidly, for you to grow with. They have a welcoming workforce that wants to see you succeed - and they have fun too. Non-existent politics. What more could one ask for.

    Cons

    Caution! You may become a bit of a nerd here. Translation: you will become very good and versatile in your area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the growth momentum and culture. And keep providing opportunities to your consultants. They're the reason for your success.

    Pros

    Benefits. Leadership. VERY Sharp Colleagues. Work/Life Balance. Caliber of clients. Interesting projects. Great opportunity for growth. Offer professional training internally and externally. Full Career Development Plans. Company gatherings. No travel.

    Cons

    Knowledge Sharing is strong, but could be improved internally as far as our Company Dashboard. Would maybe like to see more opportunities to visit other offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although we are growing fast, take some more time with one-on-one employee communications. Leverage current employee knowledge base to insure we continue strong execution delivery.
