    I have been working at DC Group as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've worked with DC Group for several years and they have all the hallmarks of being one of the greats – smart, innovative leadership that makes streamlined decisions, a real sense of teamwork, and a vastly superior solution for their customer base. This a group of people who are very good at what they do and it shows in their growth.

    Cons

    The company has been on Inc.'s fastest-growing list for 7 years in a row. So the potential is great when you work there, but there are challenges that go with this fast, sustained growth. It's probably not a good fit for people who want to coast along. Ambitious people who want to grow with a company would do well there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is doing great. Good folks who trust and empower their people. It's refreshing.

    Good group of folks who generally have good intentions

    Company is full of shortcomings, too many broken-English technicians leads to customers not understanding and well-spoken techs must re-work or re-do tasks.

    Pros

    DC Group is a great place to work; it has a great vision and is constantly growing and expanding operations around the country and Canada. In fact, DC Group has now made the Inc. 500/5000 list for 7 years in a row. Wow! The buzz around the office regarding the many awards DC Group has received, and the current construction of the Minneapolis corporate headquarters truly makes it a rewarding and eventful place to work. Some of the many benefits are:

    Great location on the Mississippi riverfront (easily accessible from all areas of the Twin Cities).
    Great benefits (competitive pay, health benefits, 401K with a company match, work/life balance).
    Variety (ability to work on multiple tasks and assignments).
    Nice perks (sporting event tickets, classy Holiday parties, dept outings, catered lunches, etc.).
    Great place to start a career (many positions for recent college grads).
    Generous and understanding upper management.
    Beautiful corporate headquarters expansion currently in progress.

    Cons

    The commute during a snowfall can be a challenge as the headquarters is in the heart of the Twin Cities!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with the encouraging words and employee perks for all team members as they really set DC Group apart from other employers.
