    Pros

    No two days are ever the same. Since this company has locations all around the world. There is always something happening, 24/7. The opportunity for growth is excellent. The general overhead is low, so everyone wears many hats. I am learning something new everyday. I love interacting with people all over the world. I get to work with true american heroes. The ethics are top notch. There is a social contract that is signed and followed to the letter. This definitely makes for a very pleasant work atmosphere. The leadership training is relevant immediately to our managers, not just something they can use in the future. I love it here.

    Cons

    You need to be available 24/7, 365. They keep the overhead low, but this creates a bottleneck sometime to get something processed. Some of the software applications need to be updated and more user friendly.

    Advice to Management

    Offer the bonuses to everyone, not just managers. This is truly a team environment. Everyone on the team needs to be rewarded, not just the managers.

    Pros

    Our Owner and our Chairman/CEO are the best that I've worked for. They always seem to have the DI Star in mind when they must make those tough decisions regarding staffing. I have never seen the CEO unkind--firm, yes, demanding, yes, but kind.

    Cons

    The uncertainty for the company staff because of the uncertain win or lose in government contracting.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more all-hands communication

    Pros

    The company is full of intelligent, helpful, team players.

    Cons

    The company has made benefit cuts to compete with this poor economy. I hope once the economy turns around the company will remember that the employees gave up benefits in bad time hoping to have them returned with good times.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to coach and mentor your employees, they are an investment.

    Pros

    Gaffney's vision, leadership, mentoring. Completely different company since Cerberus bought us.

    Cons

    "It's not my job"; "It's the COE's fault", "COE's do not support us" and like statements from middle management and below that tarnish relationships. Common statements within BATs and COEs.

    Advice to Management

    Don't compound bad decision made several years ago and perpetuate it. It might be better to snap a chalk line and start over.
