    A good company, but fragmented and inefficient

    Pros

    For people in the core business of recruiting, this can be a nice place to work. Performers are recognized with contests, prizes, and so on.

    Cons

    It seems like no one is focused on the big picture. There is no Drake employee community. If anything, employees seem to be back-stabbing and out for themselves. Everyone is terrified of the owner, and so tells him exactly what they think he wants to hear. Resources are not allocated to make projects successful, and so they wither and die on the vine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a corporate intranet and reward employees for contributing to it. Stop duplicating effort and centralize systems and resources. Refine time-wasting processes like expense reports and purchase orders. Create a positive employee culture of collaboration.

    Pros

    Pay is ok if you negotiate your rate - Half consultants on ok rate, others not so good.

    Cons

    More cons than pros.
    Bullying, intimidation and workplace health and safety issues are regularly swept under the rug. You will not get anywhere within the company if you are a regular consultant.
    Favouratism is shown to senior management, everybody else is not important therefore pushed to the side.
    As a consultant, you are expected to work 10-12 hours minimum with a minimal lunch break (10-30 minutes) and no overtime paid or lime in leiu offered.
    Wouldn't recommend as a place to work - Horrible company to work for, strongly urge you to apply elsewhere if you are looking for a valuable and enjoyable recruitment career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach! No point in having a HR Department as complaints staff are trying to get help about are getting them nowhere. You are losing valuable staff and have a high turn over rate because of poor practices.
