    I have been working at DayNine Consulting full-time

    Pros

    They train in Workday. Consultants working there are typically very good.

    Cons

    The disparity between what clients are charged and what consultants are paid is ridiculous. The vaunted company culture is supposed to make up for the disparity. Employee retention however tells a different story.

    Because of retention issues, projects are staffed with not-so-experienced consultants. Experienced consultants get stretched very thin across multiple projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make an actual effort to review and improve compensation, and not just provide platitudes about culture.

    I have been working at DayNine Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I get to implement a great product, one that I honestly find fascinating. If asked about Pros a year ago, I could have written a book. Not anymore.

    Cons

    Management stopped listening to their people and are instead more focused on revenue.
    Work around the clock. We all know consulting is not a 40 hour work week but at DayNine, it's no less than 60-65 hours per week.
    You seriously expect us to be in the office every day when we have been traveling or working 14 hour days? Sure, let's add 2 more hours commute time to our day!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit the gimmicks.
    Quit with the company culture nonsense. Quit the fraternity-like attitude and recognize all outstanding consultants instead of recognizing the same people over and over again in the painful weekly company meetings.
    Most of all, quit making us feel like politicians having to campaign for our self worth on the ridiculous Work.com.
    It's nauseating hearing the praises of the same 10 or so employees. I beg you to just recognize the person, the hard work and the sacrifices your employees make to get the job done. A simple acknowledgement goes much further than you might think.
