    I worked at DayNine Consulting full-time

    Pros

    1) Varied Work: You will be doing multiple jobs on many clients all at once. It may be the exact same job, but it will never be the same client to client.

    2) Opportunity to Move Positions: DayNine is superb in letting you drive your own career. You will be able to take any training that you want to get into the role you desire.

    3) Knowledge Base: Some of the work that is being done at DayNine is not done at any other firm implementing Workday, and it is done quite well.

    4) Travel: You will be able to visit many cities as most clients that you will be on are not in your Hub city.

    Cons

    1) Work/Life Balance: If you have a home life you care about, it will suffer. You will probably be asked to travel with only day(s) notice and if you cannot do so, you will be made to feel as though you are not a team player. There is a high probability that you will have to work weekends, nights and some holidays. If you schedule PTO, there is a very high chance that you will be asked to work while on those PTO days. Any time you spend away from work, you will be required to make up upon your return. These may be only issues to the lower level employees, but they will be constantly prevalent.

    2) No Guidance: A benefit to consulting, in general, is that you are allowed a lot of freedom to both increase your bonus percentage through billable hours and to manage your own career. The detriments, however, are more pronounced at DayNine. You will spend the first few months begging for work from everyone in the company. When you ask for help from someone, known to have the knowledge to help you, instead of answering your questions, you will be directed to a) look it up in Workday documentation, b) check on Workday Community for a similar problem/solution, c) ask other colleagues or d) wait until the person you originally asked is no longer busy or they are allowed to bill hours to your client. In the end, you will, more than likely, have to figure everything out on your own, since help is so hard to come by if another consultant can't bill the hours for it.

    3) Hierarchical: There is a seniority system in place at DayNine. Those employees with an employee number under 75, are allowed to more leeway to do what they want, usually without repercussions. This has included: not replying to Project Managers & Client Partners, being overtly unhelpful or even canceling a client meeting for non-work related reasons. Your only recourse with these people is to provide feedback that is seemingly ignored and try your best to not offend these employees, since it will only reflect badly upon you, in the end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Hold everyone accountable for their actions.

    2) Pay less attention to the puffery on Work.com and closer attention to the Project Manager's assessments of consultants based on their work on a client.

    3) There are exemplary workers at DayNine. Don't lose sight of good workers, just because their work isn't loudly bragged about at all levels.
