    I have been working at DVV Solutions part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lovely friendly company. Varied work. Positive management. Modern offices and parking on site.

    Cons

    My only negative is my journey, which is not the fault of the business

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do

    Pros

    There is very little positive to say, other than perhaps the location is good, close to motorway and train links.

    Cons

    The cons are too numerous to list. All of the previous negative reviews are true and possibly even understated. Employees treated extremely poorly by management.

    Advice to Management

    Treating employees as human beings and not as commodities will actually bring out the best in the workforce with more favorable long term results.

    Small Caring Environment, lots of responsibility and lots of opportunity to learn

    Small but steadily growing company so limited opportunities for promotion until they get a little bigger.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look after your staff

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at DVV Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Since the companies inception to the point I left, the majority of the staff are good and honest people.

    The commission is above the market rate of 20% of gross margin.

    Cons

    Unfortunately there are far more cons than pros.

    From the interview you will be told whole bunch of lies such as strong vendor relationships (which for most part don't exist), strong customer base (any customer that you acquire will be then taken on by management therefore no scope to earn further, any previous relationships will not be given to you under any circumstance, as well as this the customer base is limited to transactional business), 20% commission on gross profit (management will do as much as possible to avoid paying this).

    In terms of personal development, there is very little to no scope in this happening for two reasons; the first is that the company is extremely small (varies from 4 employees to 10) so there is no room for promotion or pay rises. The second reason is that the managment have no desire to develop their employees other than satisfy the companies demand to make a quick buck from a potential customer without adding real value to either the customer or associated vendor.

    The office environment when management are around is hugely controlling. You won't be allowed to express yourself professionally and the preference is that you are controlled.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the staff the freedom to express their talents instead of satisfying the managements insecurities to control the staff.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Initially a very good team of talented and friendly people, albeit they have now mostly moved on.

    Cons

    Perks or benefits practically non existent. No pension, no healthcare, no sick pay for 12 months. Holiday allowance low compared to average.

    No real opportunities to develop professionally as heavily focussed on selling whatever is perceived to be profitable in any given week. In my opinion this was indicative of a general lack of vision or strategy. Training likely to be limited to product vendor courses, the cost of which you will be required to pay when you resign, including associated expenses.

    Advice to Management

    Management would be well advised to end the practices of using intimidation and secrecy to 'control' their employees. Nurture and benefit from talent and creativity rather than being scared by those capable of independent thought. Encourage an open and productive working environment, rather than one of back-covering and negativity.
