Just Another Consulting Company

Consultant (Current Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at Daugherty Business Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

Pros- Good Pay
- Excellent Health Benefits
- Good Training Opportunities

Cons- Long hours after billable time is required to make yourself known.
- Some managers should not be in management positions.
- Not much opportunity to change accounts.

Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership at the client level is seriously lacking.
Provide more opportunities for changing clients since this is what you sell consultants on.
Provide a better picture of consulting life to new employees. Recruiters make it sound like it is all rainbows and ponies when it isn't.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Atlanta POV

Manager (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

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

ProsOpulent 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

ConsLead 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 Senior ManagementAtlanta VP needs to filled by someone with more experience.

Good transition job to get off the road

Manager (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Daugherty Business Solutions

ProsGood salary
Good Benefits
No Travel
Good culture

ConsLimited 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 Senior ManagementBe 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

Good place for project managers, not so great for technically minded folks (stable, but boring work)

Senior Consultant (Technical) (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

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 Senior ManagementFocus less on management consulting, more on cutting edge project work.

Not entirely what they preach.

Consultant (Former Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

I worked at Daugherty Business Solutions

ProsDaugherty was a great place to work, as compared to other local consulting companies. They do a lot of project based work and Daugherty teams work well together.

ConsDaugherty is very poorly managed. When coming off a contract you dont have any idea where you are going next if anywhere. They preach about their bench. They hire consultants to a bench because they know they are 'Daugherty Profiles.' Yet lately everyone that hits the bench gets laid off.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlan ahead. Manage your resources. You know when their contracts are up, you also know what you have in te pipeline. Match things up before consultants are unbillable.
