Positive Outlook

I have been working at Drake Manufacturing Services full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great family culture, survived the recession and growing strong, strong customer service culture--not just in the mission statement. They listen to reason and the best ideas move forward. If you take responsibility and follow through, you advance. Company keeps adding customers all over the world.

Cons

Fast growth the last couple of years is tiring. Overseas travel is tiring--exciting but exhausting. Lots of new people that need guidance. Expectations are high all the time.

Advice to Management

Do not grow faster than you can develop your people.

    I worked at Drake Manufacturing Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many good people working there.

    Cons

    Position was misrepresented. Was new position but did not have discretion to operate my way as I was promised. Wanted to maintain the status quo despite promises otherwise

    Advice to Management

    The President needs to take responsibility for his failure to meet the business plan and for dragging his feet in obtaining additional financing.

    I worked at Drake Manufacturing Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people, management, hours, and income are all excellent.

    Cons

    When the market takes a downturn, layoffs are required. It has a cyclical downturn every 6 years or so.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with an alternate stream of revenue besides pure sales. This would alleviate the need to layoff so many people in a market downturn (approx. Every 6 years).
