Great product/Bad management
Business Development Manager (Former Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 6, 2015
Pros: Great product
Cons: Bad management. Cocky attitude that clients should pay whatever they feel they're worth
This company had no clue how to be a sales organization and thus lost 8 sales reps within 6 months.They achieved some great results for their clients but couldn't set their reps up to succeed.

Good starting company, comes with free food
Developer (Current Employee), TorontoOctober 22, 2015
Pros: Free Breakfast, free lunch snacks, free drink, free parking, flexible hours, friendly co-workers, monthly pizza days, ping pong table
Cons: unstable salary position, short deadlines, volatile politics, toxic working environment depending on manager
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.

Pros: pizza lunch 2nd friday; birthday cake for employees on final friday; breakfasts provided, pool table and darts board, large flat-screen tv in kitchen
I really enjoy working at DAC Group -- there are a lot of fun people there and management does really take an interest in their employees' work and their lives outside of the office.

Great place to learn the business and move on
Account Coordinator (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJuly 10, 2013
Pros: free food
Cons: long hours
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.

Fun Workplace-Rewarding Career
ACCOUNT COORDINATOR (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 24, 2013
Pros: staff, management, work environment
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.
