    I have been working at DCA Design full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great legacy, founded in the 60s with a huge and varied portfolio of work. Big projects for large global companies. Benefits! Paid overtime, half day Friday's, regular bonuses, subsidised sports and lunches. The company is in great financial position, meaning good equipment, training, and exhibition visits. Passionate and talented teams with great capabilities.

    Cons

    Like many of the reviews mentioned on here... DCA feels like it's stuck in the past. Conservative management that love to say 'no, if it ain't broke, don't fix it'. Internal systems are frustrating and backwards (most still done on excel spread sheets). People are friendly, but atmosphere still feels cold, impersonal and quiet offices. Can be difficult to work in varied sectors and disciplines. Procedures and red tape doesn't encourage flexible and collaborative work. Work can sometimes be unfulfilling. Reviewing staff isn't a priority, took me months to get a review despite requesting. Warwick and Leamington are small midland towns and can be a bit quiet.
