I worked at Dexa Systems full-time (More than a year)
Its a small company atmosphere if you like that.
Dexa is really a shell of a company. Most of the executives are part time contractors and most are past retirement age. By the decisions these guys are making you dont get the feeling they are in it for the long hall. It really feels like the seniors are just trying to pad there retirement account before they check out.
The situation that was created by the new ownership is laughable. If you are an engineer or developer this place will drive you insane. The technology leadership is actually from a IT/procurement background and has never (thats right i said never) worked for a solutions or security company before. You cant begin to imagine the insane working environment it creates when you have novices guiding seasoned professional.
Im also aware of multiple instances where Dexa did not pay its employees as agreed. This was not a small wage discrepancy but rather a considerable amount of money that employees where cheated out of by management. You can actually read about one of the cases in public record (Harris County) where a former college is suing Dexa for substantial wage theft (for several hundred thousand dollars).
The CEO has a reputation for cheating people with shrewed business and political tactics. He even promised to offer profit sharing to the employee at critical junctures and has never followed through. Not sure if its illegal but in my mind to mislead employees with a bold face lie about profit sharing - causing them to make life altering decisions for your benefit - sure seems fraudulent.
Advice to Management
Pay you employees...its not rocket science. People dont like working for people they cant trust.
