I have been working at DHA Group full-time for more than a year

Pros

Small organization with very knowledgeable individual members. Individual managers know the contracts and people working them very well. Managers are easy to approach and seem to care about employee professional development.

Cons

New COO who fires longtime employees with little or no warning and makes no announcement that they have left the company or who is taking on their duties. A bit of a climate of fear at HQ which works its way down to the individual contributor level. Folks seem afraid to go to bat for employees if it means rocking the boat.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

David Hale should spend less time on leadership retreats and spend more time leading. He is not around and it appears that he is using the COO to do the dirty work while distancing himself from the unpleasant task of reorganizing.

    I have been working at DHA Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    DHA is a very personable close-nit place to work. The administration has come a long way from growing pains due to growing so rapidly to the employee's happiness as a goal. The PM's are very personable and have an open door policy. DHA is well known with the clients with a great reputation. The company is steadily growing even in this downfall economy. The benefits are the best I've seen in the area.

    Cons

    Schedule flexibility depends on an individual manager. Some are and some are not. Not something DHA has control over though.

    I worked at DHA Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some really talented people work at DHA, and everyone is easy to get along with. The Program Managers seem to really care about their people.

    Cons

    The company bonus structure changed while I was there, hitting my income.

    The whole back office had massive turnover. The recruiting department had a complete turnover in 2012, as did other departments like HR. The recruiting group got a new manager and that caused a mass exodus. The whole proposal shop basically left the company in 2012. Same with Finance. Complete turnover. The management team lost a lot of very senior people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit telling people that things are getting better without doing anything to solve the management problems. You need to be honest with your people and talk to them before you make promotions to keep the bad apples away from the cookie jar.
