    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at DCR full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of the other lower level employees are great at what they do. Pay is acceptable.

    Cons

    Poor management both upper and lower. Poor benefits. Inconsistent work load. No work back log. No incentive to bring in new work. No incentive to complete projects under budget or ahead of schedule. Penalized for poor performance of other divisions. Way too much overhead. Keeps poor performing employees way too long.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the layers of management. Diversify your client base. Listen to experienced employees. Get rid of dead weight before it costs you clients.

    Pros

    Union positions but then again you are working with a bunch of scumbags.

    Cons

    Terrible way to spend your life.If you wish to learn how to be lazy,loose all your ambition,then finally realize after a few years you made a huge bad decision working there and now no one will hire you because you come from an agency with a track record of non-performers then this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    None they don't take advice. They are just waiting to retire or jump ship because of the above reasons.

    Pros

    Friday Morning BreakFast & Sometimes company lunche/dinner.

    Cons

    You need to work more than 13hrs a day including weekends. Senior Management dosen't know anything about the market outside. Little care of people who work very hard, Cheap, Poor and neanderthal management, No Promotions, No work from home, Not very sophisticated, No trust, Not safe to say what you think, Overburdened, Antiquated systems

    Advice to Management

    Take a close look at the talent walking out the door.

    Pros

    I can not give one good reason to work for this company.

    Cons

    As a subcontractor with DCR benefits did not exist. They offered us two weeks of leave without any increase no matter how long you have been with the company. There was no room for professional growth and their attitude was if you dont like it you can find another job. The original contract with another company came to an end and a big company took it over and subbed it out to DCR. They cut everyone’s pay in half and took away all of our benefits. This has made me question working in the contract world. This was one of the most unpleasant experiences in my life as a professional. My advice is if you hear that DCR will be taking over your contract look for another job fast!

    Advice to Management

    My almost two years with this company I only meet face to face with my manger one time! My advice is to stop looking at your employers as dollar signs.
