    Pros

    Working Environment, camaraderie, and benefits are above par. Great people to work with and advancement potential.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons. I would say that it's hard to keep up with the demand for IT professionals.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Excellent leadership

    Pros

    Daugherty Business is an honest and direct company. Daugherty allows you to succeed in your career by supporting your efforts to improve yourself. Daugherty has in house partnerships with multiple certification companies and offers to train & certify you in areas that you express interest in. This does require that you sign up and attend the classes.

    Cons

    The only "con" that I can even think of is the limited information available surrounding raises. I am constantly being told that "it depends". It goes without saying that if you do well you will get a raise however there are 2 titles that each person carries. A consultant title and a billable/role title. If you move up in title for either the consultant title or billable title then your raise will be reflecting your new title. Thus I cannot get a straight % answer for a simple question.

    Pros

    Great culture, employee focused with strong delivery and client credibility. Great client base in Atlanta and some of the smartest people I have worked with. The leadership cares and it shows.

    Cons

    Should offer more work from home opportunities. Atlanta commute is getting worse and worse.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Competitive salary and decent benefits

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Fun, friendly, supportive working culture. Good mix of consulting projects and industries to be exposed to.

    Cons

    401k vesting period is lengthy

    Pros

    *You will have the opportunity to learn, both self directed and instructor based.
    *The benefits are truly better than any where I have ever worked.
    *You will have the ability to learn from a variety of people.

    Cons

    *Learn from a variety of people...in the past year we have turned over the majority of our leadership with little to no communication to us. We find out people have left when we ask people why our emails have gone unanswered.
    *We are supposed to be focused on sales, but we have also turned over 7 sales people in the last three years.
    *We were told a new management structure was coming back in July, there has been no further communication.

    Advice to Management

    Why are we not communicating to our employee base? Why are we saying negative things about leaders that leave? I am starting to feel very insecure, and I know others are as well.

    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?
