    Pros

    Coworkers are great, company creates a good team environment - encourages support. A lot of opportunity for internal growth with both horizontal and vertical career moves.

    Cons

    Growing fast which caused a lot of growing pains and often heavy workloads. The org structure hadn't fully caught up to the company's growth.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of conflicting tensions in the company that could be addressed through structural changes

    Pros

    The people here are absolutely incredible. Such a great environment to work in, and being surrounded by passionate, motivated hard working people is extremely inspiring. The environment the company represents in terms of how they care for employees and how everyone is able to contribute is something all companies should strive for. The management teams are transparent in their communication from top to bottom. You... feel like you mean something to the company from Day 1. There are opportunities galore to move vertically and horizontally within the business, so you can find your niche and what makes you most comfortable within DayNine.

    Cons

    DayNine has some growing pains. Almost growing at a rate that is too fast! If you don't like change then stay away, this is a place that is constantly growing and evolving, which is a good thing as long as you can handle the pace! Also the certification and interview processes are very long and arduous. Work/life balance can get thrown off a bit when you are in crunch time, but that's expected in the consulting... realm.

    I worked at DayNine Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people and great leaders! Workday is a fun system, and DayNine is the best in the business for implementing, so if you are interested in Workday, DayNine is where you want to be. DayNine supports a "work hard, play harder" culture, so prepare be around the best and the brightest, who all have many talents as well outside the workplace, and also enjoy doing happy hours often. There are plentiful... opportunities within the company, and as the company continues to grow so do the opportunities. I came in as a mid-level consultant, and within 6 months I was executing senior level work, and within 9 months I was involved in pre-sales work. Since DayNine is a startup, the visibility is very high (even amongst the senior executives), so if you are good it will be noticed and recognized quickly.

    Cons

    DayNine is doubling in size year over year, and with the rapid growth they experience growing pains. The subject matter expertise in some of the functional domains is low (since Workday is still very new), and it puts too much pressure and strain on the senior resources to ramp everyone up, sometimes leading to poor work/life balance and turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! As a DayNine alumni, I am still very much a promoter of the company. I still come around to DayNine events, and still hang with a lot of my DayNine colleagues. I only left to pursue a career outside of consulting, and would not hesitate to go back if I decide to go the consulting route again.

    Pros

    The People working here are cream of the crop professionals that are fun to work with! It's an awesome culture at DayNine. Fast-Paced, cutting edge work that is exponentially in demand! The leadership is open with people.

    Cons

    Because the company is a little on the younger side, there are some growing pains, and administrative inconsistencies. Sometimes you have to kind of make your own way to get what would be thought of as "readily available info".

    Advice to Management

    The leadership is doing great!
