    I have been working at DLC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I've been a Consultant at DLC for six years and have enjoyed a variety of engagements with over a dozen clients. The work has been challenging and interesting, crossing multiple industries and roles. I've gained more skills in M&A Due Diligence, Project Management, FP&A, Financial & Technical Accounting, Pricing, Spin-offs, Leadership and Management, Post-Acquisition Integration, and a handful of ERP and budgeting systems. DLC provides opportunities to make a difference with clients during those critical moments where a real difference is needed. I've been part of DLC Consultant teams that have succeeded against all odds, and in many cases I've had the opportunity to be the only face of DLC to the client. The compensation model really makes sense and is a win-win for the client and consultant. I've made a lot of friends and contacts with this job, and I'm rarely bored. Joining DLC has been one of the best decisions I've made professionally. I'm proud to work here. I love my job!

    Cons

    DLC is highly selective in its hiring process, only hiring Top 25 MBAs and CPAs from Big 4 Accounting firms with fortune 1000 experience. In a few situations I've met highly qualified individuals who wanted jobs here but didn't fit the selective profile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow our client base, pursue additional opportunities with our existing clients, hire and develop highly qualified people, and build a high performance culture. Keep up the good work!

    I worked at DLC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    DLC in Orange County was a great place to work. Your experience with DLC will be dependent on the projects you're on, but I only had one bad client in the few years I was there. Also, you earn your base salary whether you're on a client or not.

    Cons

    Pressure to get yourself off the bench when you are between clients. Also, it's sometimes confusing whether you're going to get incentive compensation or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work in Orange County!

    I have been working at DLC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Consultants are paid for every hour they work, and for those we are are on the bench waiting for that next great assignment. Consultants are given an annual employment contract. Great employee benefits from health care, wellness program, 401K, , challenging work utilizing my skills every day, opportunity to consult to some of the top companies in California. Can't ever rest on your laurels :-) every day is a new day and every project a new beginning.

    Cons

    DLC only hires Top 20 MBAs or CPAs from Big 4 Accounting firms with private company experience. It is great to be held in such great company and to work with such incredible professionals, but that means not everybody can work here!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Keep winning those top notch clients and exciting projects and keep attracting the talented professionals that are proud to be DLC Consultants.

    I worked at DLC

    Pros

    They pay you by the hour when you work, but that's not a whole lot of incentive when they're sending you somewhere that requires a 2+ hour commute each day.

    Cons

    The worst part about working here may be the lack of career progression you won't be showing. You may get great exposure to different industries or work experience, but it will be difficult to show in such a flat organization where promotions do not exist (literally, this is true as part of the business).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate sacrifices employees make and recognize they are truly giving up something for the sake of the firm rather than dismissing what they do as part of the job.
