I have been working at Drake Manufacturing full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great family culture, survived the recession and growing strong, strong customer service culture--not just in the mission statement. They listen to reason and the best ideas move forward. If you take responsibility and follow through, you advance. Company keeps adding customers all over the world.

Cons

Fast growth the last couple of years is tiring. Overseas travel is tiring--exciting but exhausting. Lots of new people that need guidance. Expectations are high all the time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not grow faster than you can develop your people.

    Pros

    Many good people working there.

    Cons

    Position was misrepresented. Was new position but did not have discretion to operate my way as I was promised. Wanted to maintain the status quo despite promises otherwise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The President needs to take responsibility for his failure to meet the business plan and for dragging his feet in obtaining additional financing.

    I worked at Drake Manufacturing full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    a good learning experience, good traveling to other countries and meeting other cultures

    Cons

    too many supervisors, too small of space for the jobs we where doing, no accountability, too many builders on one machine, too much back stabbing among builders and management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    wake up and take care of your builders when you promise something you need to deliver , you have one manger saying one thing and another doing something totally different

    Disapproves of CEO
