    Pros

    My direct report and management team were professional and very team oriented. Corporate seems intent on building a company built on true professionalism and rooting out the "buddy system" systemic in overseas contracting.

    My experience with the company was overall very positive

    Cons

    Many departments lacked continuous improvement input from their front line personnel. Many of my friends from other departments experienced a far courser work life from their senior management team.

    Advice to Management

    More emphasis on education, experience, skill, aptitude, and attitude during hiring.

    Pros

    The company is very generous in its vacation allocations, based on how long you've worked for them. The are definitely pro-veteran, and family. The atmosphere is one of teamwork.

    Cons

    Being off-site, sometimes information is found out slowly. Additionally, historically when training is required, we tend to get notification at the "critical" hour for it to be completed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication lines open to the lowest worker level.

  3. It was a good place to work, management was pretty easy, but for most people the advancement rte is low

    Advice to Management

    They should have incentives for people to work harder

    Pros

    Great pay, and experience! Raises were annually started off at $27.00/hr after one year of work and one raise I ended at $30/hr

    Cons

    The location of work was pretty bad, it was southern Maryland and the cost of living down there was outrageous.

    Advice to Management

    Work was great while I was there, it isn't the normal professional work environment due to the majority of the people being prior military there is a bit of hazing going on at times.

    Pros

    Our Owner and our Chairman/CEO are the best that I've worked for. They always seem to have the DI Star in mind when they must make those tough decisions regarding staffing. I have never seen the CEO unkind--firm, yes, demanding, yes, but kind.

    Cons

    The uncertainty for the company staff because of the uncertain win or lose in government contracting.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more all-hands communication

    Pros

    Been here a long time and make good salary.
    Big campaign to promote their ethics and culture.
    I am trusted and respected for my skills and knowledge for the most part, which is as I expect to get anywhere, as I highly skilled and have 2.5 decades of expertise.

    Cons

    Extremely unstable; employees live in culture of fear and exhaustion. Rounds of lay offs every year if you are not a union employee working a specific contract. Funding for various projects is always hard to come by even for regular much needed maintenance.
    2 years of zero merit pay increases across the board and benefits reduced.
    AWFUL work hours on call 24x7 for weeks at a time. Some weekends worked continuously.
    Very top down organizational chain of command with a strong reaction to employee's voicing questions or criticism. Not a collaborative culture.
    Very few opportunities for advancement.
    The promotion of the DI Start as their ethics and culture is superficial. SR management does not act it out.

    Advice to Management

    Make employees feel valued with even a tiny pay increase. Stop the executive and senior management perks. Stop trying to trim the corporate overhead jobs, cutting benefits, and constantly rearranging the reporting structure. So much change is not making it better, only creating doubt and fear. Create opportunities for employees to grow their skill and value.
