    I have been working at DataLab USA full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Hiring process was very quick and easy. In only 3 days after I applied I had a phone interview, then was called for an in-person interview, where I met a great team of professionals: the HR manager, the COO and 2 other managers. I got a great offer in less than a week, I accepted it and haven't been happier since. I've learned a lot for the past year and after only 3 months of hard work I got rewarded with a considerable raise. Everyone here is very helpful and understanding. This is a very friendly and family oriented environment. Since I started my family and I have attended a number of great company picnics and activities. Great location, with lots of lunch options around and not much traffic.

    Cons

    I can't think of any.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for the opportunity!

    I have been working at DataLab USA full-time

    Pros

    The first thing I noticed about DataLab USA was that I see people here who are incredible at programming, analytics, marketing, client services, and administration, who genuinely like their work and their co-workers. It's a great feeling to come to work and be happy to be here, and really like the people that you spend 8 hrs. a day with 5 days a week. This group of people at DataLab USA are amazing. They are supportive, caring, and encouraging. I know other companies expect their employees to be on-call 24 hours a day, which is very restrictive; DataLab encourages a good work/life balance

    Supportive team, great work/life balance, great medical benefits, 401k, very intelligent co-workers.

    Cons

    I can't think of any currently

    I worked at DataLab USA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salaries were above market value. Software and hardware are always being upgraded. New Wegmans just opened up within 1 mile. People truly care here and your not just a government job filling a seat.

    Cons

    I prefer to be on the client side versus the vendor side. Configuration of the production layout are changes every 9 months it seems. Highly recommend a car to take advantage of area. Security and or DOD clearance doesn't increase salary, no government security clearance needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for training and opportunities and if things don't work out on the client side i will be calling you.

    Pros

    Great place for top talent to advance.
    Management follows the "Hacker Management" style were developers and programmers who produce results get raises.
    Small company were your not just a number

    Cons

    Do not recommend to government employees.
    Full time work only, no part time.
    Building is not open 24 hours a day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Client feedback surveys would give more insight into client feedback.
