Management Consultant (Former Employee) –  Dallas-Fort Worth, TXJanuary 21, 2018
If they practiced what they preached and trained us to do, the company would run much more successfully than it has. Turnover is constant and they blame it on travel, in some cases that is true. However, poor management is the biggest driver.
Pros
Travel
Cons
Poor Management

Managemenet Consultant (Former Employee) –  Norfolk, VAJanuary 17, 2018
As everyone works throughout their homes and work sites there is no actual HR or management to go to when there is an issue. With all the travel it is difficult to have a work/life balance.
Pros
See new places
Cons
No personal time

Company is a sinking ship
Business Development Specialist (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXOctober 31, 2017
For the business development role the base and commission plan seems great at first however I was there way over a year and never saw the 47k also commission is a great number but will always find a way not to pay you for them. However you will be required to do everything for their outside sales reps who get paid 250k+ you will be responsible for everything they do. The direct management is immature and extremely negative, never motivating and you will not learn how to do this job or learn what the company actually does. You will be talked down to, screamed at, belittle and told how replaceable you are and even if you do manage to hit over the unattainable and unrealistic goals, that aren't just expected but demanded. it will still never be enough. Tense and extremely hostile work environment. Just know this is not a long term position max 1 year. You can also expected your family life to be non existent. This place demands 45 hours minimum per week and no lunches.
Pros
Benefits pay and vacation
Cons
Hours, morale, no integrity, no work life balance, micro managing

Too much constant travel
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Dallas-Fort Worth, TXSeptember 21, 2017
Great experience in manufacturing environments but too much travel Culture was excellent in the beginning of my tenure, but at the end the culture was confrontational and all about billing

Being on the road making a difference
Consultant (Former Employee) –  VariousAugust 21, 2017
Daily review with team before meeting with client on how to improve and change their corporate culture. Some clients were easier to deal with than others. Pressure was constant from the time you arrived at airport to time you departed home airport later that week.
Pros
Many different industries to few.
Cons
Long hours, lot of time on the road.

Pay is good but watch out
Management Consultant (Former Employee) –  Denver, COAugust 21, 2017
The pay is good, but they will always be watching you and you can be ghosted for absurd reasons. Beware the company getaway, its a chance for them to make you drop your guard and it can have repercussions.

Good starter company if you're looking to start in the consulting business
Management Consultant (Former Employee) –  United StatesJune 27, 2017
This is a good place to start out as a management consultant. You work in all areas of consulting and with a wide variety of workforce fields. The company has decent benefits; however, you fly every Friday and Sunday for 50 weeks a year. Additionally, you work a significant amount of hours, before dawn and well after dark.

Struggling Company
Associate (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJune 11, 2017
DB&A is currently in a struggle to maintain and or increase their revenue stream. They have been in a period of rebuilding and realigning but this has been slow and painful at best. Some very good people within the company however the entire company thought process and operations mentality are stuck in the late 80's and 90's regarding management concepts. Executive management has been raised up within this culture and has not demonstrated the ability to get away from what was bringing them success 15 to 20 years ago and thus they are stuck defining and redefining the word insanity.
Pros
Lots of experience in different lines of business in a very short period of time
Cons
Little guidance, minimal if any actual training, no definable product or process.

As business climates change, DB&A stays the same
consulting (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXApril 5, 2017
The company has been trying to improve its culture over the past several years but most of the senior management is stagnant and unwilling to change. The CEO has been unsuccessful changing those reporting directly to him and unwilling to change the last of the remaining guard.

The company management will talk about the way things used to be and how they have changed. When things are going well, which seems to happen less and less often, the project climate is positive. When things on projects are not going well, the management reverts right back to their old way of doing things. Senior management micro manages the project management and forces the project management to churn and burn the consultants.

There appears to be a complete lack of strategy, I am not sure some of the management even knows what it means. Client management at the senior management level is lacking which is causes most of the issues on a project. When senior management fails, they blame those below them.
Pros
Competitive Pay, benefits are decent, the different locations and client types makes for interesting learning experiences
Cons
Company Culture is inconsistent depending on the project management and project, Prepare to be highly criticized with little intention of being developed, I am terrified that this review will cost me my job

Travel see lots of airports, hotels and car rental counters
Senior Management Consultant (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXMarch 24, 2017
Clients success is the reason I took the job and stayed, the management of the company did not care about front line workers, just about themselves and increasing the value of their bonuses and shares.
Pros
build up flying, hotel, and car rental points
Cons
home only 1 full day each week, no support or job security

Great Place to Develop and Advance
Management Consultant (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXFebruary 13, 2017
DB&A is an awesome place to work with great people in senior management! Feedback is not only taken well but asked for regularly. The skills and tools you learn and use will help you the rest of your life.
Cons are you must be a road warrior. This is a travel demanding job and hours are long but they do fly by. I personally enjoyed the travel very much however my family became a growing one and could not continue to travel!

Overall I give it a 4star out of 5 and only due to being gone all the time!
Pros
Meeting people all over the country! Working within a family atmosphere! Great Medical benefits, travel perks (points/miles)
Cons
Being away from family and lack of home time.

Horrible Place
Consultant (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLJanuary 20, 2017
This company will throw you to the side without notice. You have no job security. You will not get development and you will be the first person to go when management does a bad job, you are the scab goat.

Process Improvement Consultant (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMay 5, 2016
Traveling 50 weeks a year takes it toll. Good place to learn a lot of different areas of process improvement.

No 401k match.
2 weeks vacation.
2 - 3 years and you are out if you are not preforming.
Pros
Great place to learn
Cons
Traveling 50 weeks a year

Tough but good
MANAGEMENT CONSULTANT (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXDecember 3, 2015
DBA is the best company I have worked for. The problem is the travel, 51 and perhaps 52 weeks a year. Expect to leave your house Sunday at 2 pm and return Friday around 5-6 pm every single week you work there
