  1. Great opportunities and salary only overshadowed by very expensive health insurance.

    I have been working at DSI (less than a year)

    Pros

    Smaller company that's growing fast. There is lots of perks that the company provides that makes it cool to work here. Free gym membership, random catered food, etc.

    Lots of career growth here and really bright people. For the most part management is easy going. Company stays close to the bleeding edge of technology so you get to see lots of cool things.

    Slick headquarters that has cool technology built into the place. Its a little strict on what can be out in the open and nothing is labeled in the break rooms.

    Cons

    Benefits. A family of 4 insured will cost you over $600 a month. That's medical alone. Dental is cheap for the most part. Vision is typical. They tout that they pay 60 something % of the overall cost though. Seems like they are getting ripped off and have no concept of shopping around and doing everything to find a better plan.

    Coverage is average If not just a hair better than that. Tack on $80 for parking in the deck every month and the 1% KCMO tax and you will see any pay raise you get coming here go away.

    No 401k matching. They seem to have no desire to change this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to hire the best talent, compete and retain people, start with your benefits. This is absolutely unacceptable. Everything else seems good.

    I have been working at DSI full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Throughout my time here, I've ultimately had endless opportunities to make this job what I want. I was given initial steps with my position, and since then, I've been able to run with it completely. I'm trusted to make suggestions and implement changes I'd like to see within my position. I'm expected to work hard, but I've seen the benefit of doing so through compensation and work place freedom from my supervisors. In addition, DSI is working towards becoming one of the top employers in the city and I'm excited to see the some of the discussed programs initiated.

    Cons

    There wasn't a great deal of initial training for me. I've gotten where I am based a good deal on individually taking on challenges with minimal direction as they come.
