    Pros

    Work hard play hard mantra, unlimited vacation after two years, weekly Friday company paid lunches and most importantly the best candidates and coworkers on the planet!

    Cons

    We work with clients and candidates that sometimes don't understand what sets us apart from the other "box store" staffing companies. It's more than just putting the right leg in the right location. It's finding a match that challenges someone personally, professionally and makes them want to go to work each day!!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. This ship is headed in exactly the right direction and I wouldn't change a thing

    Pros

    There have been a lot of changes over the past 5 years and it has made The DAVIS Companies a better place for it. A lot of emphasis is being placed on continuous improvement and management is very supportive in encouraging staff to consider furthering their education, taking public speaking classes and attaining relevant industry value add certifications.

    There is proven opportunity to advance your career as a principal contributor or in leading your own unique team... It is a fantastic time to be at DAVIS, the next 5 years are set up to be very exciting.

    Cons

    There have been changes and as a result there has been turnover. This seems to have slowed as it seems the right people are now in the right seats.

    Advice to Management

    Continue communicating company progress!! Sometimes there is too much time in between updates.

    Pros

    -Can be really, really fun
    -Understands that there is life outside of work
    -Made some great friends

    Cons

    -Pay is not competitive at all
    -Promotion/hiring is based on who, not what you know
    -Limited to no career growth
    -Lack of guidance from management
    -Lack of knowledge/advice/mentorship from senior management

    Advice to Management

    -Complete a full, comprehensive salary survey. Don't rest your expectations on a few good perks outweighing lack of a competitive salary.
    -Promote based on experience and skills, not just because you know them.
    -Practice what you preach. I've read the blog posts regarding life at Davis, career opportunities, etc. It sounds great but is not an accurate portrayal of Davis. There's a reason turnover has been high for the past year.

    Pros

    Davis does a great job of building a collaborative environment where knowledge is shared and all parties involved are working towards a common goal. In an industry where cut-throat attitudes and aggressive territorial behaviors tend to run rampant I am very happy to have landed in a competitive environment with a pack mentality. Compensation is excellent... decent base and excellent intensives for success as an individual AND as a group.
    Company was founded on giving people the tools they need to split off and run with something they are passionate about. That mentality is alive and well today.

    Cons

    As in most recruiting and sales jobs, hours can be long but the people you have working on either side of you make the hours go by quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!!!
