    Pros

    They try very hard to make you feel welcome and part of the company. I had a strong sense that people were listening to me and paying attention. I felt very "empowered" and appreciated.

    Cons

    Some work is direct for customers at their location. You feel robbed because you are at the crummy customer location with the bosses who aren't as good as the DAC bosses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more diversity conscious. I'm Jewish and some behavior at company events made me think that hadn't been considered. Try to find a way to get people who aren't in Crystal City to the big off-site.

    Pros

    Everything about DAC was fantastic, from the people to the work. Everyone's very good at what they're doing, and you'll get to work on your own project and see it through from start to finish. There's very little micromanaging, and you have a lot of free reign over how you design your project, but at the same time everyone is willing to give you suggestions and assistance when you need it.The overall environment is fantastic, everyone is really friendly, and I couldn't recommend this company enough.

    Cons

    Was occasionally unsure of what to do next, but generally was able to get ideas for how to proceed pretty quickly.

    Former Employee - Research Scientist  in  Arlington, VA
    Former Employee - Research Scientist in Arlington, VA

    Pros

    Employee-Owned Company filled with bright, energetic people. Potential to work on a variety of interesting problems in text & natural language processing, operations research and sensor/data fusion. Lots of freedom to pursue a research agenda. Employee's are treated very well. Hours are flexible, managers are supportive and there is even an annual off-site company-sponsored retreat (in places like Hawaii and California).

    Cons

    Relatively flat management structure. Lots of ability to take on additional responsibility, but little ability to get promoted.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA

    Pros

    Employee-owned company that offers a great benefit package.

    Cons

    Because they are a federal contractor, a number of the employees work offsite at client locations, loses a sense of belonging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. I look forward to seeing the great successes the future holds for Decisive Analytics.

    Pros

    Decisive Analytics is a great place to work for so many reasons, but truly the best reason is the people. The people are top notch in all areas of the company and the company takes care of the people. They always stand behind what's right.

    Cons

    Same cons as all small companies ... certain things just haven't made it into the structure yet but it's heading in the right direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up and maintain your focus on your people. Your work product will always be top notch if you continue to bring in such amazing people.
