    I have been working at DB Consulting Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I am very lucky to work here. This company allows me plenty of opportunities to grow and work on projects I feel passionate about. My management really stresses the importance of having a strong work/life balance, and I am allowed to telecommute whenever possible. The pay is also more than adequate.

    Cons

    Human resources does not always have sufficient knowledge to answer all of my questions about pay, insurance, and leave time.

    I have been working at DB Consulting Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits package - if you're single. Very expensive if you have a family
    Average compensation across the industry

    Cons

    No tuition reimbursement
    No career path or investment in improving skillsets
    You are hired as a contract employee for the life of the project, typically one year. You are expected to be fully capable to perform all tasks assigned and hit the ground running. They do not invest any more in you as employee since they don't plan to re-staff you when your project ends. Their focus is on winning business, making as much money as they can off the resources allocated to that contract. If you're looking for more than just a paycheck, look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider investing more in employees, specifically developing skills that are valuable across many projects. You would earn more from keeping them staffed from project to project vs. terminating them at the end of contracts and starting over with someone new at a higher initial cost.

    Pros

    Location. One block from metro.

    Cons

    HR is unprofessional and not trustworthy, which is a serious problem considering they should act as employee advocates. Some of the managers/upper management actually know what they are doing, the rest are going through the motions or pretending. No tuition assistance, no recognition for a job well done. It is general knowledge that some managers take advantage of their positions, are notoriously unprofessional, wasteful, unethical, inconsiderate, etc. and yet, they remained employed and unchecked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in employees and innovative project management, and reduce waste. Address dysfunctional HR department and managers.

    Pros

    DB Consulting Group tries to provide big company benefits like solid insurance. The pay is reasonable.

    Cons

    The company is heavily tied to contracts. Loss of contracts equals immediate reduction in staffing. The company does not offer any fringe benefits or profit sharing.
