    I have been working at DGA Security Systems full-time

    Pros

    Great people at this organization. From top to bottom you will find smart/talented and engaged employees. They care about the company because the company cares about them. Good mix of long term and new employees working together and listening to each other makes for a good environment. Great benefits across the board. Time off benefits are good as well and include summer Friday's! Compensation form what I can gather is market rate for NYC.

    Cons

    No telecommuting or flex scheduling. This has becoming more common place with many organizations. A bit of a formal dress code that could be brought down a notch while still maintaining a professional appearance.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace change quicker to keep up with what other top companies are doing in NYC.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DGA Security Systems (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in April 2017. I had a phone interview that lasted about 10 minutes. They quickly asked me about my background and invited me onsite in the interview. The interviewer was very friendly and nice. They seemed to be in a rush to hire. I had to decline the onsite interview, as I already had a pending offer and didn't have availability.
