I worked at Drivestream full-time (Less than a year)
Growing company with a unique offering to their clients. People are friendly and leadership are fairly approachable. Good flexibility and less travel than many consulting companies as client budgets are smaller. Good team of knowledgeable consultants always eager to share knowledge and help out when needed. Clear career model with good alternatives for those not on the leadership track. Learning is encouraged. Casual dress allowed at head office when important clients aren't visiting.
This is a fast growing company and it's experiencing some growing pains. Lines of communication can appear less open for work-from-home employees. Can feel a little isolated at times. Factory model takes a bit of getting used to and it can be very hard at times to not just jump in and do things ourselves. I personally don't like the term "factory" for the offshore team, it's a bit old fashioned. I also don't think the sales team engage with the consulting team enough. Some consultants overworked, some don't have enough to do
Advice to Management
There's been a few great new initiatives lately, keep them up! Continue working on ways to better make use of the offshore team and improve the process of assigning work to them. Engage SMEs (or at least the team leaders) in the sales process from the very beginning so we know exactly what's in the pipeline. Improve the process of assigning work to the offshore team.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Drivestream.
HR person was nice. First information presented was how great people were, how great company culture and job performance was evaluated. Toured office. All vaporware. Ask to speak with current employees of your choosing.
easy. They're desperate. Name your price if you're good.
