    I worked at Group DCA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Co-workers are great people. Easy commute if you live in Morris County.

    Cons

    Management has sweatshop mentality and works employees beyond what is healthy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down the pace so employees are not so stressed.

    Current Employee - Freelance/contract worker in Parsippany, NJ

    I have been working at Group DCA as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Some (and only a select few) of the coworkers are nice when you get to know them outside the company.

    Cons

    Where to begin...
    1. the office environment is horrendous, same with the kitchen and the bathroom
    2. communication is BY FAR the worst..people talk behind your back and they won't directly confront you
    3. they have unrealistic expectations on short deadlines and incompetent team members
    4. things have to be repeated and spelled out and people play the blame game, so best cover your rear when you're working (and document everything because people won't remember and accuse you)
    5. very outdated technology and behind on what's current
    6. management that's suffering from ADHD and does not listen to anyone else's advice
    7. too many obese people
    8. when issues arise, the confrontation becomes super awkward..there's a thing called professionalism and etiquette, but no one seems to know about it
    9. not really related to the actual work, but this place is in the middle of nowhere!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't even know how to fix these issues.. Maybe hire people who know what they are doing and can communicate or can compromise? Inspire your employees? Change the work environment? Get in with the times? There's just way too many issues that I find it highly impossible to help this place. I'm surprised this place even exists with the way it is functioning.

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

    Pros

    The people in the trenches are great...

    Cons

    ...just don't get too attached because they lay people off *all the time*.
    Management has done its best to create a toxic environment.
    There is no interest in raising salaries to keep them competitive.
    If you put in extra effort it will not be rewarded (no good deed goes unpunished).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You may want to re-think the people you've put in charge. I recommend firing the lot. Then you really need to think about morale. From what I heard, the company used to do quite a bit to support its employees. I hear that there used to be barbecues and free lunch on people's birthdays... those might not be free but they are small things which would really help.
