    I worked at Dixon Hughes Goodman full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people, lots of runway ahead

    Cons

    Some teams are better than others. Some leaders can play the bully role too well and employee growth is driven by the employee, not by the leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on Advisory. Listen to the people at all levels.

    Pros

    DHG continues to surprise me ... I thought after 2 years the glow would be off of this place, but not so! I am still 100% delighted with my choice to join this awesome firm.

    Cons

    401k / profit sharing could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Continue OneDHG and your emphasis on people. It really is working

    Pros

    The people at DHG are exceptional! Your team becomes your family, as you spend all of your time with them.

    Cons

    The work-life isn't always great. Public accounting firms expect a lot during the busy season, which most people knew going into the job. However, depending on the industry you work in, the rest of the year can be just as busy.

    I have been working at Dixon Hughes Goodman full-time

    Pros

    DHG does have great benefits!

    Cons

    The Recruiting Team needs lots of improvement - from process to leadership. Growing too fast! There is lots of favoritism and prejudice and upper management isn't listening. Hiring mangers do whatever they want - they doesn't show up to interviews or cancel at last minute.

    Advice to Management

    The HR and RAS Leadership Team needs to be more involved and hold managers accountable.

    Pros

    The firm has a good referral bonus program

    Cons

    The firm needs that bonus program because they can't retain talent. They'll gladly pay you $6k to refer one of your friends in, but put in the least possible amount of effort required to keep you around.

    Want to do Regulatory Compliance, IT Audit, IA, or Finance Transformation? Don't bother with this place. They'll lure you in the door, or out to the client site, and then bait and switch you faster than you can say "bait and switch".

    Advice to Management

    Quit saying one thing and doing another... or double down and keep mixing up the Kool-Aid. Does management even care about the things they read in this section?

    You should pay royalties to Larry Tesler. Had this guy not invented the copy & paste functions, you'd have no work to staff employees on.
