    I worked at DRC|CTB full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This company was second to none and had excellent benefits. Employees were amazing team players and most knowledgeable in the industry.

    Cons

    Employee work was not balanced. Many were overloaded with work, while others in the same department did not have enough.

    Advice to Management

    work/life balance is important. Many middle management employees were not needed as many teams were self-sufficient.

    Pros

    Great work environment, a boss that let me keep my own schedule. Freedom to work from home part-time.

    Cons

    not really a lot of cons, big company, to big separation between management and workers.

    Advice to Management

    Go for lean six sigma all the way. Better planning and execution for temp workers (not humanity in some cases, and quicker to cut the losses in others).

    I worked at DRC|CTB (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Autonomy; great support internally and for customer relationships; great Finance management for programs; team members who cared very much about quality; colleagial work environment (other companies I have worked for have an every-man-for-himself atmosphere); great pay (compared to industry); strong processes supporting management of programs; generous benefits; fantastic location of corporate office

    Cons

    Leadership never seemed to clearly see the future issues with online testing taking over and maintained clunky systems, which inevitably was the downfall of profit and CTB, even though it was apparent and discussed often amount Program Ops; many hours logged - tough work/life

    Pros

    Smart, hard working group of people work here.

    Pros

    Pros:
    Company general reputation is really good. It has quality key leaders. It has great products/services. I also admired other company initiatives (marketing campaign, community involvement, training programs etc.) Company awards were great and company management philosophy as well as company values were admirable

    Cons

    Nothing to say about cons or disadvantages.

    I worked at DRC|CTB full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall, great hardworking dedicated professionals. Group is helpful and works as a team to solve problems and support customers. Vacation time and benefits are adequate.

    Cons

    Hard to use vacation time. Not because time won't be improved, but the work load makes it hard to take a week off from work. CFO is great to work with, but some other finance people are more difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Need to pay more attention to finances and spending. Be more cognizant of pricing and contract agreements. Sales makes promises to customers that can't be met.
