    Excellent health care benefits, 401K is average

    Too much branch work and initiatives. Also becoming a staff augmentation company instead focusing on core consulting. Depends upon LOS.

    I worked at Daugherty Business Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good consultants. Some very good managers.

    Cons

    This company is attractive on the outside, but once in you find that you were hired to fill a seat (contractor) at a client site. Yes, a handful of senior folks do consulting, but it's mostly staff aug. Don't be fooled. If Daugherty is your only job offer, then consider it, you will be working with some good people. If you are looking for a career, this is not it. High turnover, too. Leadership just sweeps it under the carpet.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at your leadership in the Atlanta Branch. Why is there apathy and why are people leaving?

    Pros

    Great benefits. That's it. Atlanta is an absolute wreck. I worked here for 3 years to get off the road and in that time management has drastically turned over. it took me a while to figure out this out but they're a staffing company so if you're billing you're heads down and don't really know what's going on back at the ranch until you hit the bench. I hit it twice and the second time was let go along with 4 others

    Cons

    I don't have any actionable advice other than to stop selling yourself as a consulting company. This is a TOTAL body shop. The worst was we had our corporate party announcing what a solid year we had after laying off half our bench. reach out to any former employee before working there. Just pick one Anyone!!

    Advice to Management

    I don't know how much more time the husband/ wife owners have so why not just sell it and be done with the headache already???

    I worked at Daugherty Business Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company offers good base pay and medical benefits. There is also plenty of opportunity to train and learn new things at this company. The consultants are generally nice and easy to work with.

    Cons

    A considerable amount of senior management and office staff turnover- maybe 30 or 40 percent this year has led to an unstable career environment. If you hit the bench, you have a few weeks before you may be terminated. There have problems with keeping and growing accounts and salespeople. As others have said, you will have to work much more than 40 hours to keep up with what is going on.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect, Revisit your human resources practices. Hire professional sales people, implement a retention program.

    Pros

    Great culture, excellent benefits, lots of opportunities, lot of great clients. No travel out of Atlanta required.

    Cons

    Traffic on 141 towards Buckhead is bad between 8am and 9am and in the evening from 4pm to 5:30pm.

    Advice to Management

    Get more clients to work for in Alpharetta, Johns Creek area. Give employees warnings/second chances/set time to prove themselves, if they are not able to fetch a project instead of removing them from the company.
