    I worked at Dawson as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    They will find you a job.

    Cons

    They lie about what kind of job they are placing you in, the perks, and advancement just to get you to accept the job. My recruiter completely lied when I asked if the job she was setting me up for was data entry (it was) she said no and also lied about being hired on permanently. It was also impossible to get a hold of her most of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk some sense into your recruiters. Nobody likes a liar.

    Tragic career move taking a job here

    I worked at Dawson

    Pros

    The recruiters are young and outgoing, but have very little experience or knowledge of life outside of Dawson. The management has been there a very long time. The owners took over their Dad's company, which leaves them very hands off, letting the workers earn the dollar without help from above.

    Cons

    Management is democracy at it's finest here. If you arent an attractive female, need not apply. You will be expected to hammer out plenty of cold calls as management will review your talk time. Over promised and under delivered is their way of business, negative service in the IT department to customers. Much more reputable firms in Columbus other than Dawson, look for those.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new managers, actually practice the changes you pretend to implement. Become more active with your hard working employees. Listen and actually BE the change you wish to see vs. pointing the fingers elsewhere. There is absolutely no accountability in management, which trickles down to staff.

    Pros

    Sirius Satelitte radio pumps through office. Hoshizaki ice machine on site.

    Cons

    The management is terribly out of touch with reality. The founder Facebook's all day long. The Director of IT is very agressive, very pushy and demeans his staff verbally. He micromanages to an uncomfortable level. He has a very limited professional background. He is also very loud and verbose. I would strongly recommend that any true professional avoid this company altogether.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating people like dollar signs.

    I have been working at Dawson

    Pros

    The goal is to help BOTH the candidate and the client at all costs. The experience is uplifting and informative. The staff is engaged and driven to succeed for you.

    Cons

    Since it is a team the silo work style is not encourage so if you are not collaborative by nature it would not be a good spot for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing just more of it. The team is strong and will be getting stronger and stronger.
