    I worked at David Aplin Group full-time

    Pros

    At one time there was the "home/work" balance, but that was slowly changing when I was released. They let you run your desk the way you want to run your desk as if it is your own business, its about making the numbers which makes sense. Flexibility in regards to attending to family at home, option to work from home was a perk for employees with children. When the economy is good, and your billing,life is good here, when the economy took a turn, things changed, you learned your value quickly.

    Cons

    Lots of staff turnover in leadership and consultants, revolving door of poor hires lots of change in consultants during the seven years nationally. Weak leadership for branches, challenge to find someone to manage the branch took over a year to secure someone, numerous managers during my time. Technology, computers needs to be updated more than ten years old, screens were old, nothing seems to be updated with the times. Don't spend extensive money on marketing the organization was a long term employee, when the economy took a downturn there was no support in assisting to make a decent living and over exceed the draws. Continually takes earnings away from consultants with their new major accounts initiative which was started at the beginning of the year.
