    I have been working at Daugherty Business Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The prior Atlanta branch leadership did not execute Daugherty's business model well creating too many staff aug type assignments. The new client partner team is driving change in the business and selling some interesting new assignments. There is an increased sense of optimism and energy throughout the office.

    Cons

    Took too long for senior leadership to recognize the issue and make a change.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the new client partners and let them run and grow the business.

    I have been working at Daugherty Business Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone who is terrible at their job gets paid extremely well. All you really have to do is not hit the bench.

    Cons

    If you hit the bench, you will be fired after 4 weeks waiting for them to sell new work, which rarely happens. Tick tock. Assignments are all staff augmentation, and they sell one person at a time. No project work. They're clinging to one or two major clients in each market. It's a house of cards.

    Advice to Management

    Sell. Quit holding people's careers hostage. Quit spending money on incompetent sales people.

    Pros

    Competitive salary and decent benefits

    Low bonus potential. Self-described as a consultancy, but mostly staff-aug. Career advancement only available to those willing to work 40 hours for the client and then 20-40 hours uncompensated.

    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?
