    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.

    Pros

    Did not see any pros working for this co,

    Cons

    They pay you 30 an inspection but you have to use your car and spent 20 on gas.
    Generous people!

    Advice to Management

    Pay your inspector the money they deserve,


  10. A company under the umbrella of a wonderful conglomerate, JM Family, that takes a slightly different direction.

    Pros

    Cost of Benefits, Excellent 401k/Profit Sharing, Company Car, Generous Year End Bonus/Gifts

    Cons

    Frivolous Travel, Potential to be away from family for days, Little input allowed to management, VERY little input accepted, NO input that would facilitate positive change accepted.

    Advice to Management

    Listen! The 'pros' in this review are a result of JM Family initiatives, NOT Datascan. If you want to cut costs, you must attempt to cut travel. Field associates have great ideas b/c we live out there every day. Communicate better. Field associates that hit certain monthly revenue numbers should be rewarded with a bonus. Cash Bonus = Motivation = Higher Revenues = Higher Profits.
