    I have been working at DrFirst full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The feeling that you are in control of your own destiny. You can advance as little or as much as you want. I have seen people that started in a support position become VP of the company.
    The company as a whole genuinely cares about their employees, sometimes you might not feel that way but after 10 years at DrFirst I know they do. There will always be people who feel slighted or that they are not being heard. Yes, DrFirst is not perfect but I am positive they try to be fair to everone.
    The company is not for everyone but neither is the Army. I spent a few years there also and saw 50% of recruits wash out so each of us have to find their own comfort zone. Not comparing the Army to DrFirst but all jobs require a certain amount of commitment. And yes if you cannot meet those goals you will know that. But they will usually give you a opportunity to try something else.

    Cons

    Sure there will be days when you will work more than your 8 hours a day. But I do not ever remember a job other than in high school that you left at 5pm on the nose. Sometimes people might not be recognized as fast as they should be if you continue, you will.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the real faces of the company that actually talk to clients and know what they like and put them together to brainstorm instead of after the fact. The boots on the ground win your wars not the generals who do not ask the opinion of the ground troops. This is coming around so can I complain? Sure. But I think we are moving in a positive way.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at DrFirst.

    Interview Details

    The process was straight forward.
    5 programming challenges to implement in java on a paper and then a technical interview with technical team.
    Then some technical question about my experience,... and why I'm looking for a new job and normal thing.
    I was not willing to be employed there because of many negative post on this website about the way the expect their employees to work overtime also some bad user experiences from their customer ( I found those info 2-3 hours before the interview).
    But the interview was not very challenging and It was the way I expected it .
