"From a recruiting and retention perspective, I view DLC's employment model as a compelling differentiator among traditional consulting firms. The combination of their salary model, employment agreement, bonus program (which includes pay for hours billed in excess of forty), and deployment of local talent philosophy should be very appealing to top-tier finance and accounting professionals interested in consulting."
