    Pros

    Brand Name - That's it....but the equity there is falling sharply.

    Cons

    Management is reactive. No people strategy. People are considered expendable. Accounting / Finance functions are corrupt. Company keeps pet businesses that are Michael's little screw-ups running just so they don't have to report Michael's bad business decisions in acquiring a family owned company....etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on integration of what you acquire. Focus on updating all systems. SaaS businesses and the computer "box" business require different billing systems, etc. Take note that even all SaaS businesses even require different systems. There isn't any "one-size-fits-all" solution for all the systems needs. The company's focus to try and produce one is futile. Trials to do so have lasted infinitely longer than that which a reasonable investor would find reasonable.

    Current Contractor - Anonymous Contractor in Rockville, MD
    Current Contractor - Anonymous Contractor in Rockville, MD

    I have been working at Dell as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Most of employees I know and have been working with them until DSFG took over the contract. This is one of the biggest contract they won 290 mil. The place is located next to White Flint, MD, and dub as one of the "Best Federal Agency to work for".. NRC

    nice drive
    Come in for the clearance, work for 2 months and start looking

    Cons

    PURE PROFIT DRIVEN.

    Communication is horrible, the company management, internal management do not respond to employees. You can call them, send an e-mail, no response. At the work site, If you need to speak with management there is a chain that has to be followed, if you break it you are frowned upon. Management does not respond to repeated e-mail seeking help, on projects. The current management in place is not up to the task, and are very unaware of the environment, and culture of the users. Our immediate management have NO technical skills and yet they are managing a team of technicians and engineers. We do not have enough staff causing failure SLA. This is a sinking ship.

    If you come as a "only allowed partner" the jobs are only reserved for certain companies, you can not convert over to the main company. Also the partner pay much much less, and life is also bad with them.

    You get your normal benefits... BTW the stock sucks.
    vacation 80 use it or loose it
    sick leave 80 use it or loose it.

    Not a good place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your mind, and speak to the employees without making threats. If you want to this contract to continue, you NEED to address internal problems NOW! because your entire team is looking, and they ARE LEAVING!... not going, not maybe, not will..BUT ARE LEAVING
