Architect + DevOps (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 May 2017
Nice office environment and friendly coworkers. Very collaborative culture open to new ideas and solution strategies. It was a pleasure to have an opportunity to push my architectural thinking into new dimensions.
Web Personnel (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 24 May 2017
A typical day is to review work requirements or changes and updates that were requested the previous day. Update the team of project status.
What I've learned in the company, you need to "sweeten" everything to get ahead, flowery statements, it's a good thing for career advancement.
Generally the company is ok, they just don't stick up to their clients even if they are knowledgable of the subject. Taking customer is always right to the next level. Good for clients, not so good for employees.

BI Reporting Architect (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 May 2017
I thoroughly enjoyed working at DAC Group. For the majority of my time there I found that I was able to control the narrative of my career through the innovative use of advanced technology and development of processes. The company has seen a lot of growth over the last decade and it is exciting to see where it is going to go from here.
Great place to work, one of the best digital marketing agencies in town. Focused on the business and success of our clients rather than meeting arbitrary account sales numbers. Growth opportunities and career advancement are definitely possible if you work at it, there are no free lunches. Training and support are offered, investing in your people is the smartest move because it pays off.
Developer (Current Employee) – Toronto – 22 October 2015
Its a good good company if you need a start. They like hiring entry level people. The experience is good, and they produce some of the most current technology, so this would be a good place to enhance your skillets. The deadlines are insane sometimes, as the company seek to satisfy the client as much as possible and by meeting short deadlines will satisfy the clients the most.
However if you are new, they also tend to pay you pretty low too.
If you're in the IT department, expect high turn overs. This is a company that micro-managers and wants detail record of your hours worked, which you have to record daily, and it has to be accurate.
Expect a very highly political cutthroat environment. Mistakes can cost you your job, especially if you happen to have a manager that protects his/her own position well. This is not a company that tolerate mistakes, especially in the IT department.
This company also has a policy it can fire employees without notice and warning. They never like to give warning, as its too dangerous to give warnings, especially in the IT field. One day when you arrive for work thinking its a regular working day and bam you are escorted out the building in the same day. If you feel your job is in danger, you probably are in danger.
This is a company for the highly ambitious and can play politics well. If you are this type of person, you can go pretty far in the company.
Account Coordinator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 July 2013
If you're new to the industry, it's a great place to get your feet wet and find out how things are done. However, lack of opportunity for advancement and below industry average salaries make it a place for development and little else.
ACCOUNT COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 May 2013
Loved working at DAC Group, was there in their earlier years of development. Has grown to be a very successful company. I was there for almost 10 years, regret leaving there as all that were there back then have advanced and have great work experiences. Definitely a place to work at if you want a promising and rewarding career.
