    Pros

    Lots of work. Jeeps you busy

    Cons

    They bring in help at a higher pay and they can't do work as expected

    Advice to Management

    Don't pay the help more than you pay your top people. If you have a problem with the help the answer shouldn't be " Deal with it"

    I worked at DAVACO full-time

    Pros

    I've heard that I was hired to work on the one team no one wanted to work for, so it's possible other departments are better.

    Cons

    Immediate supervisor was jealous of other female employees. My second week there I had seniority. No training to speak of and no assistance when I had questions.

    Advice to Management

    Rein in your people.

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

    Pros

    Pay and benefits. Traveling perks. Company has a good reputation

    Cons

    Little to no communication throughout the company. Coworkers and management will cause strife if they do not like you and will conspire for you to quit or be terminated. The code of ethics hotline doesn’t work and there is nothing you can do about being mistreated and harassed. Unprofessional behavior by lead goes undisciplined

    Advice to Management

    discrimination is against the law

    I worked at DAVACO full-time

    Pros

    Good money that was it about this company and some of workers was nice

    Cons

    Out 3 to 4 months at a time maybe 4 or 5 days home then coming home on a break finding a job at home and telling them that you're not coming back and then when you decide you want to go back and they Put you on the no hire Davao is not a company people wants to work for especially if you have a family and kids

    Advice to Management

    When you have someone who would be home on break and company calls and you go out at drop of hat need to try to keep this employee

    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.

    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.

    I worked at DAVACO part-time (More than 3 years)

    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.
