I worked at Data Systems Analysts full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great middle management, stable company, interesting work for the intelligence and DoD communities, fairly good benefits including lots of time off.

Cons

Too much reliance on federal opportunities, haven't been able to sustain commercial ventures with mortgage banking, energy, or pharma. VP level employees with no clue who take credit for others work. No work opportunities in the HQ region

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stick to your guns, to what made DSA a great company to work for in good times and bad. Reward every employee equally based on actual contribution, not just the VP and above levels. And fire any manager
