    Pros

    This is one of the best companies I have work with throughout my IT career. The leadership team is always motivating and consistent. They encourage you to do your best even if you feel as though your not. Well-rounded individuals.

    Cons

    I really dont have too much negative things to say. The career paths however aren't really mapped out, Sometime individuals depend on you only for specific role.

    Pros

    Make your own hours. Work in the field and not in an office. Access to company car for work and personal life. Good benefits such as 401K with matching and profit sharing.

    Cons

    Very few opportunities for advancement outside of relocating to the home office in Georgia. Marginal yearly raises. Pay is only "ok". Must work in adverse conditions (heat, snow, rain)

    Pros

    Work out of your own home, no office to go to!

    Cons

    As a contactor, your treated like you are not worth anything. Paid by the inspection at too low of a rate. They have you work a 50 mile radius from your home but will schedule inspections all over the area, not uncommon to put 150+ miles a day on your own vehicle with no vehicle use reimbursement. If you have an inspection over 50 miles from your house, they will reimburse from mile one at $0.35 per mile round trip. This is treated as income, so after you pay taxes, fuel and some wear and tear on your vehicle, you get nothing for your time. Do the math, not worth it. They charge you for the use of equipment, which is quirky at best. When IS upgrades the software, hours are spent trying to get it to work right. There is never a positive word, all their memos end with the following to contractors are: if ........will be ground for dismissal. From a contractors point of view, the Moran family culture is not evident here. Unless you are hard up employment wise, look somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Development a contractors council to exchange ideas and improve communications. DSFS needs to be more positive in its written communication to contractors and not communicate with negative undertones.
