A good experience in general but with negative aspects that make it not worth the trip.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at DLZ full-time for more than 3 years

ProsOnce I was there for over a year, the staff warmed up and I made good friends with 97%.

ConsAdministrative Coordinator and Staff are negative and prone to attack, willy nilly.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice. The issues they have are long-term. If they don't see them now then they never will.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

If You Like Car Sales This is The Company for You

Marketing (Former Employee)
Columbus, OH

I worked at DLZ

ProsBenefits are standard. Management is laid back and does not micromanage. Salary is slightly above average. Good coworkers.

ConsIt’s all about money. If you don’t produce income, you’re out. It’s cheap, high pressure car sales. Infighting between architecture/engineering is a big drag on morale. Company will sacrifice long term client relationships to achieve a quarterly goal.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind a new DLZ Ohio president that has the best interests of clients in mind instead of DLZ’s bottom line. Focus on quality, not who you can lay off next.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at DLZ

Prosleeway with job performance; challenging work; better than average pay; very good benefits
