    I have been working at Dev Technology Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Managegment truly wants you to succeed. They are trying to bring people up through the ranks, giving people who have a interest in Business Development or Management to go those routes. Additionally, they don't want you to feel like you are stagnant in your current role.

    Because it is a small company, you have a much more intimate working relationship with upper management. This is a huge plus because I never feel like I can't pick up the phone and call.

    Cons

    Because it is a company that is mostly involved in Federal Contracts, you live and die by how the Federal Government is currently spending money. When the government is spending, there is lots to do, when they are not, things can get thin. However Dev Technology makes every possible effort to never lose a good person. I've seen them go to great lengths to lessen the stress and strain of lean times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Don't forget that the most important thing we can do is to make sure that team members have the ability to maintain and keep their technical skills "fresh"!

    Pros

    Great office culture, encouraging work-life balance. Always seeking and encouraging employees to seek new project opportunities. It's a great company to grow yourself. Whether you’re currently a fresh graduate or a senior executive, the company is always there to help you expand your knowledge and expertise in the fields you are interested in. Great company benefits!

    Cons

    As for most small companies, there is always risk of changing projects. But the company strives to ensure employee stability, and to provide the best fit projects for its people.

    I have been working at Dev Technology Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A small company with an open and honest culture that puts clients and employees ahead of bottom line. The company has strong ethics. It's a growing company and those truly interested in assisting with the growth, can roll up their sleeves and pitch in. Ability to balance work and life.

    Cons

    For those employees with specific technical skill sets there are not always job openings or opportunities when they may want or need to change. However, the company does try it's best to retain employees and find other opportunities, the size sometimes limits that ability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the dialogue with employees going. Increase transparency on corporate goals and the strategy to get there.

    I worked at Dev Technology Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    No micromanagement, opportunities to pick up skills for highly motivated people.

    Cons

    salary increases don't budge past 1-2% year after year
    There is no stability as far as projects. Unfortunately, the company does not get prime contracts with the goverment, so you wind up working for 3 different entities, each with a management layer as a subcontractor (not including the goverment!). This translates into filling three sets of timecards each week.
    Management is more concrened about having your timecards filled on time that the quality of your work or the work life balance of it's employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you send a manager to a customer site, he should be professional, technically competent, and not a sales rep that relies on the old boy network.
    please develop an adequate training budget, make the process for getting it not seem so onerous. It is great to challenge people to pick up new skills, but technical training should be part of the deal.

    Pros

    Great people. Responsive management to employees and their requests. Benefits are great.... Management is small and accessible. Compensation is above industry average. Talk about collaboration, but do not see much in action.

    Cons

    Lack of career growth. No name recognization outside of DHS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change nothing.

    Pros

    People are nice -- good Xmas parties.

    Cons

    No name recognition. No prime contracts, so all contract issues are dictated by EDS/HP or othe prime. Will grow only so far as prime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate growth of all employees and see how many are doing exactly what they were doing when hired. 100%?
