    I have been working at DHG full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great culture. Competitive compensation. Career advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    It’s a public accounting firm. Some will always see this as a negative, but there are also many benefits of doing financial consulting for a company with sufficient resources and diversity of expertise.

    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Having a company credit card was cool. There are also free snacks and drinks. They also make you work so much that they provide free lunches and dinners some nights while still promoting “life beyond numbers” at the same time.

    Cons

    While I was there they cared a lot about their Glassdoor rating which is obvious by a bunch of similar reviews around the same day saying “great place to work”. Office management and politics are insane here. Management plays clear favorites and if you aren’t a favorite good luck getting a good raise or evaluation even when you work more than most people in the office. They straight up lie to your face to keep you... quiet and try to get you to stay with broken promises that never come to fruition and you realize 6 months later that you wasted your time by staying. Turnover is so bad in some offices that partners are actually doing workpapers. Stay away and get your experience elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Try to focus on all of your employees instead of just the ones you like.

    Pros

    DHG has a strong culture focused on the career development of their employees. They offer unlimited PTO. There is also flexibility with working from home

    Cons

    Can be high stress for long periods of time. Strict timing for promotion and raise opportunities. Upper management can be slow to respond to concerns of employees.

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

    Pros

    Free coffee, vending machines, catered lunches and the ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Management hired me for a skill set but quickly had me performing work that was outside of our agreement. The work hours that were discussed was 50, but it was frequently more (and we were pressure to “do what it takes”). Management shows little initiative to teach and frequently forces lower tiered employees to “own” projects with little instruction. Hostile and stressful most times. Opinions and... suggestions were met with a negative response and questioning employee commitment.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your associates from beginning to end. “Open communication” isn’t open if the employee feels that their voice isn’t valued.

    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.

    I worked at DHG

    Pros

    Tons of free food, standing desks, nice laptops

    Cons

    Zero training, unrealistic hour expectations four months straight out of the year, overburdensome technology, catty office environment

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people! The company could easily solve the problem of people being overworked by hiring extra people, but they won't because that will cut into their profits.

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

    Pros

    They provide a lot of CPE to new and existing staff. Most employees below manager level are fun to work with. You sometimes have the ability to work from home depending on the time of year.

    Cons

    Management consistently tries to operate at a minimum staffing level to maximize profits. They are aggressive with when you can and when you cannot take time off and you often have to explain what you want to do with your time off. Charge hours are monitored on a weekly basis and you can expect to get called out whenever you don't meet your scheduled chargeable hours for the week even though you may be on track for... or above your annual charge goal. Employer 401(k) contribution is only 3% of base salary.

    Advice to Management

    Stop limiting the time that employees can take time off to 3-4 months out of the year. Hire more people. Stop burning out high performers with heavier workloads and spend more time to develop underperforming staff.
