As you might expect, your day-to-day responsibilities vary dramatically from client to client and project to project. Given the breadth of industries we serve, your exposure could range from Aerospace to Agriculture, from Pharmaceuticals to Financial Services, from Engineering to Entertainment or from Real Estate to Retail. Your projects will run the gamut as well. Today you might be running a due diligence engagement, tomorrow you might be reengineering a close cycle. This week you might be “going live” with an SAP implementation, next week you might be developing a strategic planning process. This month you might be integrating an acquisition, next month you might be interpreting an accounting pronouncement.

I joined DLC because it is a world class organization with a small company feel. I didn’t have to choose between having challenging assignments/career growth and working in a comfortable, supportive environment.
CPA with Coopers & Lybrand. I have held positions in financial reporting and analysis, planning and forecasting, as well as strategic planning in companies such as PepsiCo, Disney, Sony Pictures, THQ, eToys and 505 Games.
I serve on the Board of Directors as Treasurer for the Pacific Palisades Woman’s Club (501c3), and participate in the UCLA Alumni Mentor Program. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends and love staying active.
How We Support Your Success.
Because our consultants are our firm’s greatest asset, DLC is deeply committed to training and development. Our goal is to provide our consultants with comprehensive and easily accessible tools to quickly advance the learning and development process. We realize that in order for DLC to reach its full potential, our consultants have to reach theirs first.
We get you started on the right track with an orientation program that covers all aspects of the consulting experience. The program is designed to cover a lot of ground in an efficient manner. Topics covered are vast and varied and can range from overcoming specific client challenges to maximizing the success of an engagement.
We offer customized training programs through a web-based learning portal that provides access to over 1,000 academic resources.

In addition to customized training, DLC also offers its CPAs additional training to stay current with their CPE credits.

Where DLC Can Take You.
DLC Can Elevate Your Career To New Heights.
The consultant experience at DLC is specifically designed to accelerate our practitioners’ development. Many of our most well-rounded consultants entered our firm with narrow industry and functional experience and dramatically increased their transferable skills in a short period of time. While we would like our consultants to make DLC their last career move, we recognize that the skill and experience they amass while working for our firm makes them extremely attractive in the marketplace. Whether they work for a multinational corporation or a venture capital backed startup, our Alumni hold positions of prominence in the organizations they serve.
Building a Network and Lasting Relationships.
As a DLC consultant, you will gain instant access to a network of talented professionals as well as the collective intellectual capital of our firm. Your colleagues will routinely share their insight, knowledge, and perspective to assist you with technical issues, client management issues, and even your own professional development.
In an environment that fosters sharing and open and honest communication, it’s no surprise that many of our consultants forge lasting relationships that transcend the workplace.
