    Pros

    The Daugherty Atlanta Branch is rapidly expanding. Recent leadership changes created many opportunities for advancement and personal career growth. Culture is very entrepreneurial. It's an environment that is open to change and carving out your own niche. Worth a look if you're a rockstar who's tired of being just another fish in the big pond. Plus, we have great clients in the Atlanta area!

    Cons

    Trade off of weekly travel for Atlanta traffic/commute. Clients are all over the metro area. Career management is self driven.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    My experience at Daugherty Business Solutions is good. It is a great place to work. After working at various companies throughout my career you can easily recognize when a company strives and takes the measures of doing things right and keeping their folks happy, and it doesn't become a challenge to write a review on them. It's sort of like when you discover a good restaurant, a gem, and you want all of your friends/colleagues to know about them to experience how good it could be. I've watched how Daugherty does not just talk to the talk but truly walk the walk in how they operate. They say they value work/life balance-check I've seen that here. No travel required with this company. They say they have clear defined career growth plans and allow you to be a driver of your career path- check I've seen it here. There are smart and passionate people all around here at Daugherty that are going after the same goal. On top of that they are people that you can become good friends with.

    Cons

    Commute is a bit tough but that's anywhere in Atlanta. Luckily, there is some work hours flexibility with that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work you're doing in Atlanta. Continue to have that team collaborative approach.

    Pros

    Daugherty has great colleagues that I can work with. They are smart, professional and actually nice. There isn't the cut-throat competitiveness that exists in other consulting firms.

    Cons

    Vacation has been a challenge but the company rolled out a new PTO policy which should be better.

    Advice to Management

    Don't tip the balance of focus between Client and Consultant. There seems to be a good balance right now.

    Pros

    Very smart people and the company is willing to invest in good ideas and the right people. Growing because of strong client relationships and successful engagements. The technical team in Minneapolis is growing, and it is nice to have a larger and more diverse group of developers to bounce ideas off of.

    Cons

    More communication for headquarters in St. Louis is needed. It is nice to have some autonomy in each branch, but I'd like more insight into the overarching strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating, and keep making strides in the right direction with PTO and 401k.

    Pros

    People are great -- smart, nice and motivated. Medical benefits are top notch. Good work/life balance. Management seems to care. Local model is not just talk. Some client work is strategic and fun. Ability to have an impact. Rolling out new development center and investing in more sales.

    Cons

    Not all client relationships are at high enough levels to do strategic work. But seems like we are making some progress.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting from within and improving knowledge sharing.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    I haven't worked with a group of such talented people in my career. Pretty much everyone I have come into contact with I can immediately tell is seasoned, has fantastic experience, and is always willing to lend a hand and help enhance an area where I haven't had expertise in order for me to help my clients. Additionally, while it is a business, the interest of the client seems to truly be at the heart of everything and not just making a sale.

    Cons

    Some of the internal processes could be amped up a bit, but it those things are actively being worked on, but with a growing company, those kind of things happen. IT also gives opportunity to people to help design what those process should be.

    Advice to Management

    Continue top promote from within and train the excellent talent you have in house.
