    Pros

    The pros really depend on where you start your career here, I believe. Certain new hires go through a lavish orientation and are equipped with more equipment and research materials than they'll ever use. The firm's technology is strong--to the point possibly that there's redundant software and subscriptions. Lots of support staff, such as office administrators, marketing professionals, IT, etc.

    There are occasional people in leadership that really seem to care. Senior management, for better or worse, is trying to raise the firm's status and image to that of a Top 10 firm. This has its issues though, as discussed below.

    Benefits and pay are comparable to other firms, possibly a bit higher than direct competitors. Promotions come easily, but that's a double-edged sword of course.

    Cons

    Unless you work within one of the larger offices, a new hire is likely to get silo'ed pretty quickly underneath a single partner or director. Despite senior management's desire to be seen as a firm with four distinct and uniform divisions, many offices continue to suffer from fractured lines due to rapid acquisition of local firms. In my experience, I was assigned to a particular partner and soon found my lateral mobility within the firm was zero. While I was branded as being part of a "national practice", the reality was I served the pleasure of a single person, seldom able to follow my own interests or pursuits.

    I suppose if you luck up and pair with a decent partner, you could have an enjoyable career here--but I saw just as many losers as winners. And by losers, I mean partners stuck squarely in a loop of "do my thing, get my bills, do my thing again" with very little thought to succession planning, growing people, and expanding skills. In my years at DHG, I saw a great many bright young associates throughout the region either get let go or leave due to lack of work and mobility when it was clear it was that person's partner to blame. How this can happen in a firm that is supposedly a "super-regional" (their term, not mine) is a shame.

    In sharp contrast to that, the firm tends to have an "up or out" career plan in which it doesn't tolerate professionals who want to stay at a certain level. The "up or out" taken in tandem with the lack of lateral mobility and freedom of pursuit can make a person begin to feel pretty stressed.

    I won't say there's NO communication from upper management, because that's not true. There's lots of it, but the problem is most of it is bogus. If you pay attention over any span of time, you begin to see a lot of retractions, reversals, and contradictory positions.

    TL;DR - This firm is a hodge-podge of small firms trying to perform as one large one. I predict it's going to have several years of growing pains before it will be a uniformly-stable work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Glassdoor wants me to give advice to upper management, but I wouldn't presume to tell them their business. My advice is to middle-management (regional leaders)... put a stop to the silos in your regions. They're a product of a bygone era of the profession. They allow a bad manager or a bad partner to do too much damage. They lock new employees into paths assigned by chance.

    And maybe cool it with the fancy new titles.
