    Pros

    They are willing to hire "risky" candidates. Great for someone who needs a job with poor qualifications on paper.

    Cons

    Maximum amount of flex PTO of 15 days (only after working here for 3 years) 10 days before that. ZERO opportunity for growth. Job grades are not even established. Do not expect to grow here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people. Take their needs seriously to retain talent. Establish employee grading standards and hire managers with management experience. Give people room to grow.

    Pros

    DTI is a great company to start at with no job experience in the field and/or minimal education. Coworkers are vibrant and fun. The main office (NTC) is clean and in a great location.

    Cons

    Upper management does not recognize and reward strong, dedicated employees. Employee turn around was pretty high. Raises are laughable and bonuses are laughable. Morale is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please reinvest into your employees. The talent is there, but most leave to go somewhere else once they're able.

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to learn so much in a fast-paced industry. The location was ideal. The days flew by from being consistently busy.

    Cons

    Compare to the amount of work I was doing the pay was abysmal. Sometimes I felt overworked. Some of the responsibilities were pretty labor intensive. The management was very selfish and did not take into consideration the welfare of the lower employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees. It doesn't always have to be monetary. The people who work there aren't slaves!

    I worked at DTI full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good people. The people at the local level were fun to work with. I do miss them.
    The work, although very stressful, was challenging at times.
    Lot of big name firms as clients, but most the work doesn't funnel through the local offices

    Cons

    The benefits are horrendous. 5 days off your first year of service and it increments by 5 until your third year when you max out at 15. The days off weren't even really days off as I was expected to clock in to work on projects while I was on vacation. No respect for time off that was given.

    Overtime was decent but not nearly as much as I was promised in the initial interview. It was also CONSTANTLY scrutinized and questioned. If you don't want me to do the overtime work, then simply don't authorize me to do it.

    Sales reps refused to turn down work and would always underbid the projects so that they would get the job. Seemed to be more of an emphasis on going out and having a good time than bringing in substantive work.

    Salaries are also well-below competitive rates and management was always trying to add more job duties to people that already didn't make a decent wage.

    Despite bringing in billion dollar accounts, corporate preferred to scrap by with the bare minimum as far as equipment and would then blame employees for missed deadlines and machines breaking down. Meanwhile, the founders are making millions.

    No real serious training. Very much a learn this by the seat-of-your-pants environment.

    The entire company, from the top down, seemed to have a "never say no to our clients" attitude.

    High amount of turnover because the company doesn't know how to keep good people. A wise man once said: "A great employee should never have a reason to leave..." So not true at this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's pretty much nothing to say to management that hasn't already been said. It will just fall on deaf ears.

    Pros

    Will take almost any one off the street and assist teaching the basics and maybe a few advanced skills, but that would be rare.

    Cons

    Corporate is bad, no standards across offices, their attempt at being global is being held back by not being consistent between offices for data for the same client.
    Pay is horrible, but works if you are desperate.
    Unable to compete with salaries of other companies, especially when trying to retain talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try harder to retain talent and pay accordingly, it does wonders for morale and you have someone who can help the company grow.

    Pros

    The coworkers are nice, and somewhat frustrated.

    Cons

    Management is top-down dictatorship with too much emphasis on budget concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stress the creation of world-class Information Technology and security, and stop the emphasis on budget concerns...

    Pros

    There ARE some really fantastic people here to work with. Sadly, none of them are in management.

    Cons

    The few people who DO have the best interests of the employees that make this machine run are constantly met by roadblock after roadblock. Pay is abysmal for hourly employees. Last year we all received letters from the CEO, informing us that we had record profits. But a short time later we were told that no would would be getting holiday bonuses because numbers were poor. There is a communication gap the size of the grand canyon between upper management, and the grunts. Hourly employees are treated like little vermin that will escape and eat all the cheese if they are not watched all the time and kept under thumb. There are particular management types that have been identified as being huge liabilities with issues of making promises to clients about services they know nothing about, having issues working women and treating them with respect, etc.,yet absolutely nothing is done about it. Opportunities for advancement are not good. Trying to get training to advance your skills is almost impossible, because there's 'never enough time'. Cannot work from home. Most people burn thorough their sick time within the first 2 months of the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN. Listen to the employees when they voice concerns. There are a lot of wonderful people here, and every one of them is burning out, and being chased away, one by one.The attrition rate at our local office last year was around 45% of the staff. How is that acceptable?

    Pros

    I did learn alot about offshore drilling and production, I worked with some of the best engineers in the business. Built my selling confidence back up.

    Cons

    CEO hired a patsy to do his dirty work for him. CEO never wanted to be seen as the bad guy so he hired bad guys. You never knew where you stood.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a pair. Talk to your people and tell them what you are or are not happy about, What direction do you want them to take. Yes, everyone knows their job and shouln't need to be told, but thats why we have CEO's to tell the rest of us what to do

    Pros

    Some great people in local office. Those people keep the local office running smoothly despite problems created above. Decent salaries for some new professional hires, awful compensation for hourly employees, and annual raises are abysmal.

    Cons

    One local director is frequently referred as a major reason people are leaving. Local exec has good intentions, but is ineffectual. Local HR representative is only focused on the company, not on employee complaints. Corporate culture from HQ is toxic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't dismiss employee complaints, and focus on improving benefits and culture.
