    Pros

    Amazing environment. Great, helpful coworkers.
    Wonderful benefits package.
    Unique career and resume builder
    Parent company is one of the most successful health care Staffing agencies on the market

    Cons

    Limited opportunities to advance
    High turnover rate
    Little to no training
    Compensation could be better
    As a growing company more individuals are needed to keep up with the amount of new business that is being brought in. From travel to credentialing, D&Y is short staffed and it will impact the business for months until proper staff are hired, trained and have time to make a difference.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time training and developing your employees.
    Eliminate the sink or swim attitude.
    Improve communication.
    Continue to improve company morale by building up. Not tearing down.

    Pros

    Free monthly breakfast.
    Free food at monthly meetings.
    Across the street from a great shopping center.
    UHC or BCBS available for healthcare.
    Yeah. that's about it.

    Cons

    1)Favoritism runs rampant here. It is almost laughable how obvious the favoritism is.
    2)Absolutely no training. None.
    3)They actually held a contest offering incentives to employees for working.... OFF THE CLOCK... FOR FREE. Is that even legal?
    4)HR cannot be expected to treat your concerns with respect, nor treat you respectfully when you decide to leave (and especially not when they decide to get rid of you). Be wary of giving 2 weeks or any notice when you separate. You will be escorted, possibly physically, off the property, without an opportunity to retrieve your belongings.
    5)Marketing is little to non-existent, which of course makes your job even more difficult when no one has ever heard of you.
    6)No respect for work-life balance (see Number 2)
    7)Literally no room for advancement. Literally. The managers that are there have been there since forever. And they aren't going anywhere. You can move from tele-recruiter, to staffer. Yes! You guessed it, it's pretty much the same thing.
    8)Micro-managing is the culture there. It's just the nature, the atmosphere, the environment, the ambiance. D&Y has developed a culture of micro-managers. They are quite good at it.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to do better with the manner in which you treat your employees. Your human capital is one of your greatest assets. If you do not value the people who build your company, someone else will. Realize that the jobs that you offer are, indeed, dead end jobs, and as such you should treat your employees with respect for wishing to do well there despite knowing the outcome.

    Pros

    All the colleagues are nice and friendly! Health benefits are great.

    Cons

    This is a telemarker job not real recruiting. No training. They put you on the floor and expect you to be succcessful alone. Low paid job. No raises annual as they throw that you get commission. Too much micro-management and no leadership. Managers have their favoritism employees. They never invested in training their employees. This company has such a highest turnover rate with not giving an excuse. No room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Need to take care of your employees, and help them be successful with training. This is why your employees are leaving left and right. You need to check your competitors out that's why they are doing so well. They send their employees to offsite to get real training. They keep all their employees. Stop hiring people that don't even last 6 weeks on the job and that never did this job. You are wasting time training them. When they don't work out then you waste time filling paper work out to fire them. The manager is never involved with their team.

    Pros

    Colleagues are typically pretty friendly.
    Managers want to do more to help, even though C-level management is an obstacle.
    Monthly meetings serve food.
    Health benefits are great.
    Holiday parties are fun.

    Cons

    1) This company is severely outdated.... Training, marketing efforts, mindsets of C-Level Management. They talk a lot about wanting to improve, but couldn't manage to hold on to the one person in the company that was on a mission to bring us to the current century.
    2) Lots of micro-management, but still very little leadership.
    3) Horrible software infrastructure. It takes far too long to complete one task within the given database tools.
    4) Hardly any training whatsoever.
    5) Most managers work hard to implement positive changes for the recruiters, but are shut down.
    6) Very little consideration for work-life balance. Come in early, stay late, don't be late the next day no matter what time you left the office. Don't get sick either.
    7) Lots of talk about investing in new property. Zero talk about investing in training for the employees.
    8) You are required to pay up front and be reimbursed for any company-mandated travel. Average expense is well over $200 at any given time. Be prepared to have that money handy.
    9) Hardware (computers and printers) are outdated and in frequent need of repair.
    10) High turnover rate, with the often-given excuse, "That's the nature of the business."
    11) Very little room for growth as a recruiter or account executive. Absolutely no talk of opportunities for advancement.

    Pretty much, there are lots of priorities that are not in order.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees, and they will take care of you. Your losing employees left and right to competitors because you think you're helping your "bottom line."
    Catch up with the competition in marketing and technology. Your competitors are light-years ahead of you.

    Pros

    Small company so you make a difference, laid-back environment, lax dress code, incentives to drive production

    Cons

    Management has tunnel vision, compensation plan needs revamping, training is not structured

    Advice to Management

    Management is too flat - add layers to free upper management from day-to-day responsibilities, invest in training coordinators who will train all new hires, embrace change

    Pros

    Benefits, sales contests, positive environment, very strong company. Great for recent college grads and experienced sales people.

    Cons

    Competitive Sales Environment, Lots of pressure to succeed. Definitely not for someone that doesn't like to compete, meet goals, or do a lot of talking.

    Pros

    Strong performance-based comp program that has increased incentives and offerings each of the past 5 years while the economy has gone the opposite direction, continuous contests and recognition events, defined growth and development plans and positions that are occassionally developed specifically for an individual's skills and abilities, a thriving market, managers that care about the development of their employees!!!

    Cons

    It's hard work!!! You have to be able to sell over the phone and build virtual relationships - if you can't do that, it can be frustrating.

    Pros

    the best reason to work at D&Y is the monthly meeting where they bring food and cake. And boy I miss that cake. Seriously thats about it working there. Steer clear of that place management is so scrammbled

    Cons

    Omg where do I start. You have managers who knows nothing about their job they ask their staffing consultants who are their inferiors how to do their job. Its alot of favoritism there. HR is like a programmed robot. I would advice anyone to steer clear of that place. Dont waste your time.

    Advice to Management

    Really hire people with sufficent experience not just people that worked sales for rental car thats not really sales.!!! SMH . You need to regulate the staffing and sharing of doctors. I mean if you get someone to sign a non compete that means that they are not your doctors so inside staffing consultants should share doctors meaning growth for all consultants.

    Pros

    I have never worked for a company that values it's employees like D&Y. There were employee appreciation activities going on all the time. The atmosphere was fun and challenging - the goals set for the sales people ware very achievable. Normally 5-10 people on the sales team surpassed 100% of their goal expectation each month and made good money.

    I was amazed at how well the sales team worked together and got along. In all the other sales jobs I've had with various companies, most of the sales people really only looked out for themselves and didn't care about how others in the office performed.

    Oh, and there always seemed to be really good food either cooked or brought in for us. There were guys brought in to wash cars weekly, on site laundry service, listerine in the bathrooms, 3 different kinds of coffee served daily, company outings, etc..

    Overall, a great working environment.

    Cons

    With any sales organization, there is a certain amount of stress that comes with the job. Sales is not for the weak of Heart. Unfortunately, there are some who consistently do not perform at the minimum level expected and often fail to accept responsibility for their own lack of performance. Normally those individuals blame the company or a manager, and ultimately make everyone else around them miserable with finger pointing and drama. During my 2+ years at D&Y, I rarely saw people leave during their first 90 days.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Despite management, other employees are very nice and helpful. Office setting is pretty. Do offer great benefits and quarterly special events.

    Cons

    Company philosophy is that you are going to fail therefore, they set goals so that you do. One person in five last more than 90 days. Out of approximately 115 employees only a dozen have worked there more than 3 years, 2 dozen more than a year. Company began in 1989. Cameras, recorders and micro-management creates a very stressful working invironment. Setting a policy then not informing staff it has been changed until they are about to be fired. Not consistant across the board with employees. The jobs are telemarketing sales, even though they say it is not during interview.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize proven business management solutions to employee problems. Believe in your employees and they will perform well on your behalf. Set policy, notify in writing and stick to the policy. Do not set up your employees for failure and punishment. Have fewer managers, less micro-management and believe in success of your employees.
