    I have been working at Drake International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Global company. New CFO is the best thing that has happened to Drake. Maybe he can turn it around.

    Cons

    Poorly run, co-workers are terrible communicators, rude, slow to respond, don't respect your time, and rarely say thank you. There is no career path planning. Benefits are the worst. Management does not make good business decisions. You can expect to make the same salary you were hired at for the rest of your time at Drake.

    Advice to Management

    You have a global company. Hire global-minded employees who want to work together. You need people who are positive, proactive, and respectful of their coworkers, not the typical Drake employee.

    Pros

    Founder of the company is a brilliant man and has much wisdom to impart about recruiting and business in general. Training is good.

    Cons

    Everyone tells the founder what they think he wants to hear. Noone is really honest with him. The business needs to make more decisions based on long term profitability rather than personalities and office politics. People who are fussy, difficult to work with, and who cause problems are retained, while good people are let go or wisely move on on their own. There is no global vision or cohesion. Time wasting procedures, forms, and policies abound.

    Advice to Management

    Changes need to be made to streamline and simplify red tape workflows. Drake needs to trim the management fat and put the power to change things in the hands of the people who actually do the work.
