    Negative Outlook

    I worked at DSA Encore full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have a manufacturing system that is unique in the fact that they re-manufacture other OEM equipment and re-purpose equipment that would have otherwise been scrapped. It is given new life and sold back into the market place.

    Cons

    The company was under capitalized and did not have enough in reserve to really grow to its potential. It was run more as a family business.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the poor performers.

    Benefits are only average, but probably consistent with other businesses of there size, work hours can be long when deadlines loom; pressure can be intense working on critical projects

    Continue to scale the business to provide more opportunities to more employees

    Pros

    If you need time off for personal reasons, you will get it.

    Cons

    Management is clueless on how to manage the company. Some manages are threaten by people with more skills and knowledge to the point where they will let a project fail instead of letting a more knowledgeable person take the lead.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.
