    I worked at DHG full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None - this firm is a big SCAM (NY office)

    Cons

    I can write a million of things that are wrong with this company (again, I am referring to NY Office). They lie when they hire you that you can work on a multiple interesting projects and you can transfer from a project to a project - it's all a bog lie, they struggle to get clients and the few projects they have are low-tier mundane exhausting hours type of work that's on top of that mismanaged by unprofessional toxic managers. Once you start, it's slavery with abusive managers (bc all the normal people leave and given the psychotic set-up that's created and the nature of back-office low-value added work where clients do not respect the firm or people who work there (bc of the way the firm operates by the NY-based partners that rule it who cannot get good clients bc they're incompetent and don't have good rep in the industry - so they have to settle for 3rd tier mediocre left-over projects/clients that no other respectable consulting firm wants to take on, that's reflected in the corresponding level of treatment of DHG's employees) no self-respected manager level professional person wants to stay there for too long. As for the consultant/senior & lead consultant level - they hire and fire employees on an industrial scale basis. They just lure you in to use your resume and talent to bid for clients, then they dispose of you or pigeon hole you into low quality back-office lower-tier long-hours type of work. Hypocrisy rules from above all the way down. Consultants and Sr / Lead Consultants are actually nice professional people, but majority are terrified to lose their job to speak up, bc they instantaneously get fired if they do. The only people who survive and move forward are the ones who agree to close their eyes and fit in within the toxic culture.

    I worked at DHG for less than a year

    Pros

    The people I met were very invested in my experience at the company. I had opportunity to gain exposure to a lot of interesting projects and work.

    Cons

    I believe that the company has more growing to do before it can offer the experience that students out of undergrad are looking for. There isn’t a formal training process and it can be difficult to know what to work on and where you fit in.

    Pros

    NYC office is pretty small, so you get to know everyone. Most of the consultants and senior consultants are friendly and personable.

    Cons

    They claim to be advisory consultants providing strategic work for clients but majority of the projects are BAU work or work that the client does not want to hire a FT employee for. You are also most likely placed on a project that does not fit with your skills or expertise and be asked to do a lot. You do not have a say in the projects you want to build your career. You are more a glorified contractor than anything else. Most of the lead consultants and junior managers are not technically smart. When you look towards them for advice or gain expertise in the subject matter at hand, they have the same amount as experience as you. They get promoted based on favoritism, office politics or just know how to sell than on subject matter/expertise. Lack of transparency from senior management about projects. Currently right now, there is about one third of the office on the bench and senior management keeps saying project is coming from but they have been saying for months now. Senior Management keeps the office in the dark about what is going on behind the scenes. The review process is non transparent at all. First, you fill out your review highlighting your accomplishment etc.... Second, you ask feedback from your team members and the client. One those are complete your performance shares the feedback with you and what they going to say at a round table discussion with senior management. At the round table discussions, they talk about your work etc and then place you on scale where you get promoted etc.. but that process in of itself is shady because its subjective and you are not aware of your score. Recently, the company has been laying off/firing people and blaming it on poor performance. Most of the employees are blindsided by this decision because they get positive feedback from clients and peers and their utilization rate is good. They did not get a performance improvement plan, they were not aware their performance was below standard or notice before getting canned. HR gave them a that a senior management made the decision highly unethical business practices. Finally, if you're a person of color or a women, there is high probability you will not get promoted. I have been there for two promotion cycles and seen so many minorities, who do the right thing (great performance, high utilization, attend all the social events etc..) but get over looked for promotion for those who know the right senior managers, play office politics or know how to sell business. I think they prefer people who can sell business than hard workers or technically smart. Also if you are person of color or woman, you are on very short leash, if you make a mistake or something senior management deemed wrong, you most likely to get to fired compare to others. DHG has a whole are pushing a Diversity and Inclusion initiatives but clearly the NYC's senior managers, managers and lead consultant lack it especially on how they treat minorities and what they write in their reviews.

    I worked at DHG full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Relatively small office in NYC which gives family feel at first but it's only on the surface.

    Cons

    - Trainings are a joke, no resources to provide quality technical skills - Incompetent talent pool. Smart folks smell the rotten system quickly and leave just as fast - Promotions are highly favoritism-based, no matter what your skills and experience are - If you're not on the Sr Management's boat (NYC office has only a few ppl on top), then they'll fire you no matter how great your client reviews are and even if you've been continuously on the client side w/t any bench time - HR and Sr Management FORCE employees to make a certain number of referrals on LinkeIn. Isn't it what HR is supposed to do?? They promise referral bonuses but don't want to pay them out when you bring the poor victims in. If you care about your friends, do NOT refer them here - They talk about work /life balance but will make you work on holidays even if you reserve that time off in advance and volunteer to work during other / earlier holidays - Very low pay, bonuses are hideous peanuts - If you come from the Big4 or any other serious institution, you'll feel degraded in your skills
