    I worked at Drake International full-time

    Pros

    Micromanagement, crazy owner, no incentive program, outright lying. If you are a con man this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Hmmm, well, terrible pay, no ability to compete with the real players in the HR business, no training, gossip, managers blaming their employees, managers laid off from other companies and finding a career at Drake, everyone is stealth job hunting, absurd expectations, and whatever you do, DO NOT perform well, because you'll get canned for fear of being promoted by whoever your supervisor is. The dumbest, most ancient company I've ever seen. They literally give you a phone book and tell you to make cold calls. Excellent strategy. The company is hemorraging money, they can't give you an expense card for hundreds of out of pocket expenses, but the owner's a billionaire and thinks it's 1955 so whatever!

    I have been working at Drake International full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Office location was not bad - Bay and Adelaide

    Cons

    -Low pay -No sense of culture - no Christmas or special parties, gatherings -No opportunity for greater work/life balance, such as the ability to work from home. It is ENTIRELY possible. -Poor sense of "casual Fridays" -Freedom is limited with executives constantly over your shoulders (because of poor company brand, therefore poor sales)

    Pros

    You can do nothing and get away with it as most staff are doing Including senior managers.

    Cons

    Absolutely no culture and no employee engagement. Stupid decisions and meetings constantly No consistency with information or leadership No solid management Outdated software and products Very bad pay No one earns commission EVER The employees who are rewarded are not those that deserve it. Basically it is the worst place I have ever worked.
