    Pros

    Terrific culture - people really enjoy working together
    Great flexibility - I am able to balance a career I love with my family life.
    Tremendous Leadership - Leaders you can trust and leaders who inspire

    401k is a little dated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!! Especially in finding ways to be more flexible in a traditionally inflexible industry. No matter how much we grow, keep the culture - it is special. And keep the focus on growing women in leadership!

    I have been working at Dixon Hughes Goodman full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Growing with a consulting practice that feels more like a startup than a big consulting shop.
    - The importance of work-life balance is highly regarded and encouraged throughout the entire firm.
    - They truly care about their people and making sure they're happy and listen to them when they want to be heard.
    - A refreshing alternative to working for the Big 4.

    Cons

    - Some individuals may feel more like an employee of the client than DHG itself. However, the RAS practice is taking this very seriously and is addressing the issue.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to motivate people that are on less than desirable projects.

    Pros

    Fast paced and changing environment where your success is based on performance and hard work. Management cares about employees and will frequently discuss new opportunities and suggested training. The Risk Advisory space has many talented people and continues to expand it's horizons.

    Cons

    Work can take over at points, but that is the role of a consultant where the team is there to get a job done. Plans can also change at the last minute, which can be frustrating but can be used as a learning moment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep enhancing transparency and allow for the practice to grow while retaining the best talent.

    I have been working at Dixon Hughes Goodman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been at the firm for a year and a half after previously working at multiple financial institutions. I've found that my career ceiling is only limited by my personal ambition. The personal interest and support from upper management is far superior to any other corporation I've been a part of. Being a part of a growing firm and having an impact on the direction of my service line is a tremendous feeling after feeling like just a number in my industry positions.

    Cons

    Extended barrier to qualify for a firm contribution to 401(k) plan

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what's working. The trajectory of the
