Great potential with a few kinks to work out

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Washington, DC

ProsDHA does an excellent job of appreciating its employees and subcontractors. Although it's still a small business with some management issues to iron out, the people are sincere, hardworking and well-intentioned. When employees raise issues to management they are taken seriously and addressed in short order.

The pay is competitive with other contractors in the DC area and the benefits allow for significant personal growth.

There's a strong sense of camaraderie among the headquarters staff that makes new folks feel that they are part of a team working to support the security of the country.

Quarterly Award happy hours are a blast with an open bar, good food and cash prizes for above-and-beyond performance.

DHA's business has mushroomed over the past few years off of its main $1 billion contract vehicle. Late last year it was also awarded a slot on a new $30 billion 8-year vehicle. If the management staff can effectively handle the growth, DHA will become a significant force in the federal contracting world.

Cons2010 was a major restructuring year for the company with significant turn over that was a bit destabilizing for its employees.

The billable employees in the field, by the nature of their work, are unfortunately a bit alienated from the rest of the company and only see the whole crew at the quarterly awards.

While it's been acknowledged and is being addressed, the HR department is playing catch up with the rest of the company. This manifests in mild to moderate frustration amongst the employees. On-boarding for headquarters positions is a laborious process that involves a biased "look and feel" interrogation - the criteria of which seems to be constantly changing. This has been a significant pain for the recruiting department and has forced the rest of the company to fill in for positions that have remained open for far too long.

Advice to Senior ManagementDHA needs to build a solid level of middle management below the owner and vice presidents that can handle the day to day business so the execs can focus on fixing structural issues.

DHA's prosperity stems from how incredibly successful its execs have been at building strong and lasting relationships with clients and quality partners based on attentiveness, dignity and respect. This mentality for customer service must permeate throughout the management staff if DHA is going to rise to the next level.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    There is something significantly off about this company

    Systems Ana (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    I worked at DHA Group

    Pros: Great location convenient to Metro Center and a beautiful office down the street… Cons: Lots of secrecy and under-handed moves that don't really care about the employees. I never quite figured out the reasoning behind the shadiness.… Advice to Senior Management: Need to hire more professional people. The HR department is pseudo professional. I should have seen the flags when my interview moved into a random… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
