    I have been working at Drohan Management Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not many - they say we are on the cloud but you can't work from home. Benefit packages are minimal, no time off, even after working overtime at conferences.

    Cons

    There are too many to type. The management and owner are completely out of touch. It would take a big 180 to make this a tolerable place to work long term. They boast low turn around but that is only at the Executive Level and those are the old school people who 'die in place' the high turn over is in the rank and file positions. No one is appreciated, everyone is afraid to speak above a whisper, incompetence and disorganization are rampant

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at the talent you have, start appreciating them, allow them time off or overtime pay when we work overtime, add time to vacation or personal time off, understand that work life balance is an actual thing.

    I have been working at Drohan Management Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    DMG is an extremely pleasant place to work- very nice office facilities with all brand new computers & software. There's a great professional development program- employees get to attend all ASAE events/conferences, etc. The company pays for all training and exam fees to become CAE or CMP certified too which is awesome. Coming from my previous job, DMG has a very generous benefits package including a brand new health club added to the office. I've also noticed there is long term tenure of employees - much of the management team have over 8 years with DMG.

    Cons

    When I first started at DMG, it was tough for me to really get deeply involved with clients, etc. It was a lot of filing/data entry stuff for the first few months which was boring but I got through it.

    Advice to Management

    Organize some more fun stuff for the younger/social people! Happy hours, etc.

    Pros

    I started at DMG as a base-level employee doing data entry/various administrative tasks for the company and quickly moved up to account executive! DMG has an excellent office environment- everyone is very intelligent. The people there made my job a great experience. The work is challenging, but can be very social and fun at times especially when I got to travel. This job exposed me to many interesting opportunities when attending conferences & trade shows. The office itself had very little micromanaging which I loved.

    Cons

    There was a lot of busy work at first for what I thought was too little of pay.

    Pros

    Convenient and accessible location.
    Developed positive relationships with a few hard-working and intelligent colleagues.

    Cons

    Staff morale is terrible. Constant turnover is the norm. Staff is over-worked, apathetic, and defensive.

    Advice to Management

    Develop manners to better capitalize on staffs' skill sets.
    Develop opportunities for advancement to help deter constant turnover.
    Treat staff with respect.
    Hire talented and respectable HR, IT, and office management professional(s).
    Develop more positive and open environment to encourage comraderie.
    Employ more ethical practices when developing new business; dedicate more resources to maintaining current business rather than developing new business.
    Better encourage professional development.

    Pros

    Quite work environment. Friendly co-workers. Great team work.

    Cons

    No over pay. Noticed most are doing tasks that are not in their job description. Since the IT cloud has changed, there are numerous issues with the network, and connection. IT department is not as strong and quick to solve issues as much companies. Technology is continuously evolving, so having an issue with the network is harming the growth of the company. Which is damaging towards time management with the workflow for the client's, if the network is always slow or down. This issue

    Unfortunately there is not an opportunity to grow within the company. The base salary is lower than usual competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication skills.

    Pros

    The collective experiences of the many seasoned professionals make this a combination of a productive and rewarding work environment, and a university classroom! Sharing experiences and learning from the many great DMG clients and staff make every day an adventure. The owner keeps an open door and is always open to new ideas and suggestions. The office space is comfortable with lots of meeting nooks and corners for meetings of all sizes. Lots of laughter, lots of opportunity to "show your stuff!" Lots of support for professional development!

    Cons

    As we grow we will continue to have an expanding need for IT support...

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing!

    Pros

    DMG has some great, friendly professional people on staff and a pleasant work environment. The new offices are nice and in a good location. The company is continuing to acquire new business and so there is job security. There is a degree of flexibility in terms of scheduling. The work is interesting and varied. There are many long-term staff members and good managers.

    Cons

    No job or company is perfect, but I can't identify any cons to speak of.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow in the right direction!
