    Current Employee - Improvement Engineer in Indianapolis, IN

    Pros

    Good culture..supportive people. How you feel about the company is dependent on the part of the organization you are in. R&D - wonderful..Commercial and operations- stressed.

    Cons

    Complex industry with regulatory environment..made more complex by the way DAS is organized - hard to learn; lots of new employees- so everyone is equally confused. Matrix structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Filter complexity at every level. Bring clarity. You know about the issues, but really aren't doing much to help all the < 5 yr old employees. Strengthen the processes so that nothing becomes people dependent ( especially, retiring people).

    Former Employee - Senior Technician  in  Lafayette, IN
    Former Employee - Senior Technician in Lafayette, IN

    Pros

    Good benefits, average to slightly above average compensation, clean friendly working environment, up to date technology (mostly)

    Cons

    People will smile and be nice when they talk to you and then as soon as you leave the room they will start to complain about you. There is not a lot of room for promotion so if a position does open up it's a season of cutthroat games between employees. Contractors are treated very poorly and are frequently used as scapegoats because nobody takes responsibility for their own mistakes. This company will hire and fire very quickly if you do not fit in to their culture, which largely involves being over-the-top friendly when you are talking face to face with somebody, and then slandering them to their boss if it helps you look good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat contractors with the same level of trust and respect that you treat DAS employees with. Do not encourage drama within the company. Hire inside of the company more often.
