    Pros

    Its location
    The people are very friendly and there is a strong team atmosphere
    The newly built offices make it a comfortable place to work

    Cons

    The nature of the debt collection business makes it an unpleasent environment to work in
    Very robotic in terms of script when speaking to debtors and if you deviate off script to tender the needs of the situation you are pulled up for it in training reviews.
    Long stints on the dialler system.

    Advice to Management

    To retain staff there should be a commission structure in place as alot of the skills you learn at DLC can be transferred into a sales environment where you can earn alot more money for alot less grief from customers.

    Pros

    They are an employee oriented company. Focused on training, development , and support for all departments and levels of the company. Most of the management is fair and willing to work with you when life rears its head (such as schedule changes and time off). You are contracted specific hours and not scheduled on a weekly or by weekly bases. DLC has a standardized pay grade that is common knowledge to all employees. It is great because you also know what you need to do to get to the next pay grade. Good work is acknowledged. There is a bonus scheme as incentive for hard work

    Cons

    It can be stressful and as a collections agent you will take a lot of battering from debtors. If you are not careful you can feel the work is to scripted and routine.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your employees they are the key to success.
