    I worked at Discovertec full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Awesome team of talented and hardworking folks who are genuinely excited about implementing tech solutions. The CEO cares about the individuals that make up the company and shows it with the frequent events he puts on and his willingness to listen when you need to talk to him. Management has always been honest and upfront and a lot of fun to work with. I worked with a small team that was eager to help, loved to laugh,...

    Cons

    The room for growth I was looking for was not there. The company understood and tried to help me find a new area where I could hit my next career goals.

    I have been working at Discovertec full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    DiscoverTec is a great company to work for. I have been with the company for over 2 years. I have continue to watch the company grow and become one of the best companies in the Jacksonville, FL area. Along with the best company I have ever worked for. The CEO goes above and beyond to take care of the employees. There is always the ability to grow and develop within your role. Opportunities are endless within DiscoverTec.

    Cons

    I do not have an Cons to express at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for making improvements each day to make DiscoverTec the best company to work for in the area. Along with the internal communications to keep the employees up to date and in the loop with current and new business opportunities. This area has improved a ton over the last 2 years.

    I worked at Discovertec full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company offers services across several areas including: custom software development, digital marketing and IT/Hosting solutions. As an employee, you get to work on a variety of different projects for clients using the latest and greatest tools out there. There is virtually no internal "red tape" and things get done very quickly and teams work together to offer the best solution possible to the client. Many...

    Cons

    Due to the size and structure of the company, there is always the opportunity to grow from a technology perspective, but not a lot of opportunity to get into a position where you are managing large groups of people since most teams work fairly autonomously and are senior level employees. There can be a lot of projects to juggle at any given time, but you will never be bored or have a shortage of work.

    I worked at Discovertec full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    DiscoverTec was more than a pleasure to work for. I was given the ability to use my full creative abilities to help brand the company and was praised and appreciated for doing so. Donny Lamey is easily the best CEO and one of the greatest people I have ever worked for/with. When I first started with DiscoverTec, I was told that the goal was for them to be one of the best places to work for and that goal was more than...

    Cons

    There were very few cons but I would say, going out on a limb, that there were times when positive/constructive ideas/criticism provided for my position/team were agreed upon as good ideas but would occasionally get set back and forgotten about at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keepin' on! Donny/Ingo/Kristy were some of the most understandable, hard working people I had met in my entire career and I would work for DiscoverTec all over again.

    I worked at Discovertec full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    DiscoverTec is an amazing agency to work for. I have worked in a lot of other places and have found that the quality of output is better than anywhere else and the staff is one of the best I’ve ever worked with. Because it’s an agency, it is very client oriented where the customer is King – if you don’t have that mentality, it may not be the place for you. The marketing team is very smart and they know how to figure...

    Cons

    It's an agency. Be prepared to work under pressure.

    I have been working at Discovertec for more than 8 years

    Pros

    They have a great team to work with, everyone gets along and there is no workplace drama or stress. This is the only place I've ever worked where I can say that. No middle management layer so employees report directly to the principals. The principals have an open-door policy and you can approach them with thoughts and concerns any time. The principals (CEO, CFO) believe in a work-life balance and allow flexible...

    Cons

    Since there is no middle management, and since it is a smaller company, employees need to be able to self-manage themselves. Success at DiscoverTec is largely determined by how much you are willing to put in, and if you're not a self-starter then you might not go far here. There is no bureaucracy to hide behind here as there often is in larger, more corporate environments. Also, the flip side of being a B2B provider...

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say here, as management has an open door policy if you're willing to talk to them. Maybe being a little more clear on the yearly goals for the company and departments in advance.

    I worked at Discovertec

    Pros

    The environment is nice, co-workers are friendly. It is a great place for starting out and padding your resume with experience.

    Cons

    It's a sweatshop, plain and simple. Everyone is paid as little as possible, lowballing everyone who is desperate enough to work there. It's work harder, work faster to get the project done and more on to the next only for a pat on the back and a "Well done" while they stuff their pockets. DiscoverTec does good marketing... good marketing of the company and opportunities to the candidates and employees, but it is nothing...

    Pros

    A company with great perks, good people, and a easy going CEO with an open door policy. The CEO is the hardest worker at the company. This company is a great starting point for graduating technical students because the IT dept gets to touch many different technologies along the way. My time at DiscoverTec was much more valuable than the years of school and lab time. One of the best part about working at a smaller company...

    I worked at Discovertec full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Small teams, generally fun atmosphere

    Cons

    This is a mom & pop shop. They hire interns and fresh grads to save money and overwork them to make unrealistic promises to customers. They are consistently understaffed. Owner has his hands in a dozen small and mostly failing businesses that occupy the same work areas. Owner's pet projects come before all money making projects. Direction and focus changes often. High turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a business. Stay focused.
