Pros

Fair compensation
Good benefits, including ESOP
Employees are easy to get along with
Direct access to upper management
Management supportive of career path - even if it means moving around within the company
Low turnover rate - many employees have been with company for years
Loyal - will try to find work for you within the company or on a different contract if your contract ends

Cons

A more traditional IT/consulting company - not very innovative with ways to create a fun work environment
Employees often keep to themselves within their office
Few social activities (happy hours, company events, socializing with co-workers outside of the office)

Advice to Management

DSA is a great company to work for with a solid reputation. To be more attractive to new employees you should provide a more fun and open work environment with more interaction between employees.

    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 Management

    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

    Pros

    good health insurance coverage, great employees, small company feel, direct managers readily provide feedback and growth opportunities. Easy access to other managers

    Cons

    poor management foresight when projects end, recent C-Level leadership have lead to cutting back of programs for employees, the opportunities for professional development have been cut back

    Advice to Management

    Don't stray from the core values that made DSA successful. Work to retain quality employees, provide more flexibility with benefits and training.
