    I have been working at DAVACO full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good.

    Cons

    If you have any problems personal or within the company there is absolutely no understanding or compassion. You get black listed and they stop sending you out on jobs. They do not fire you they just stop communicating with you entirely. They just leave people hanging on to a false sense of job security.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with field employees. Listening to all sides of situations before passing judgement.

    I have been working at DAVACO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Travel. Getting to meet new people.

    Cons

    Never hardly home, family isn't allowed to come and visit even though you pay for their travel expenses.
    Takes forever to move up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Waiting for 5 years to get some of the perks that are given then is stupid. That is part of the reason for some of the high turn over rates.
    You also don't take notice of your newer employees background experience and place them on jobs that would actually benefit the company.

    Pros

    This company is horrible. But I guess a pro would be that you choose the times you would like to work. Schedule is flexible.

    Cons

    Everything this company is Horrible with a capital H. You have absolutely no support from corporate and the commutation is none existing. I was with the company for three years. And to home ever is considering working for them DONT. You will just waste your time. They will not care about you and the will just throw you to the wolfs.
    WORST company ever!!!

    Advice to Management

    Support your team. Without them you would be even worst than you are now.

    I worked at DAVACO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The job itself was great, enjoyed the people I worked directly with and the ability to work independently once I got the hang of all the tasks required of the position.

    Cons

    Salary was too low for the position and amount of work load expected to be done. Worked 50-60 hours a week to meet expectations and no compensation for it.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate the positions you have and be more competitive with pay scale.

    Pros

    Nice people and great work-life balance if you are just a project coordinator.

    Cons

    If you want to work in a place where they continuously add to your workload causing you get overly stressed and extremely underpaid, with no advancements or raises (other then the 1-3% yearly cost of living raise) then this is the place for you. Upper management does not give a care in the world about their project coordinators. Even if you go above and beyond at your job and do the best work, you will not get rewarded. They also do not promote or hire from within.

    Advice to Management

    Hire from within and if you give employees more and more work, you should compensate for that. Being paid well below market average and expecting to get exceptional work out of an employee is not rational, we get burnt out. Do something to show your hard working employees that you appreciate them.

    I have been working at DAVACO part-time

    Pros

    None to report at this time.

    Cons

    Started with company had lots of accounts which the have since lost. Also had the opportunity to travel lots. Now I have lost all my accounts and now that they have someone new staffing lots of us who have been around don't get staffed as work goes to certain ones. They also claim they staff on proximity which has proved to be a lie. They had a influx in hiring of lots of lazy and heavy cell phone users that get most of the work.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your coordinators that have been around and has lost lots of work. Staffing on installs should be distributed fairly not the same people continuing to get the work.
