Suggestions for improvement
- Give consultants time to move from place to place. Give them fair COLAs. Don’t bully them into moving somewhere they don’t want to move, without proper compensation.
What I like about the company
Consulting gets you lots of diverse experience and industry exposure. The salary was also very competitive right out of college and went up quickly for the first 2 years after that. You get to meet a lot of very smart people from around the world
What I dislike about the company
I felt like the higher echelons of the company didn’t care about me as a person. Especially whenever they forced me to move, I felt like they were just trying to get me billable to the customer as quickly as possinle. I was only given 9 business days of notice to move to a state I told them I did not want to kove to, and they gave me less than 1/3 of the cost of living adjustment that I asked for (and I asked for LESS than what the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER) said was necessary to maintain the same standard of living in the new place.
To add insult to injury, they had me working remotely for the customer during those 9 days, so it was even more difficult to get anything done for my move. My mother and best friend packed up most of my apartment for me while I sat on a 4 hour long conference call with the new customer. I felt awful. Not to mention you have to pay for everything out of your own pocket and wait for them to reimburse you. My credit score tanked like 20 points because of all the new credit card debt that sat around on my cards waiting for them to pay it off. Plus some of what they reimburse you is taxed, so you don’t even get it all back (that’s more the government’s fault than their’s, but still, working and moving for Dynatrace can easily leave your finances in a wreck).
