  1. "Flexible, Fun, but sometimes Frustrating"

    I worked at DCIP (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1) Great people who are enjoyable to work with. The IT team is not a large group, but its made up of very smart and talented people. Pretty much everyone on the team is a rock star.

    2) Extremely flexible work schedule and everyone is given a lot of independence to manage their own work in whatever manner that they choose. This can be an problem if your someone that needs more structure and direction. Sometimes there isn't enough oversight and things can get off track.

    3) Exciting industry - you get free movies and Hollywood stars will sometimes drop by the office. (OK, not really)

    4) Decent benefits, Free coffee and drinks.

    Cons

    1) Priorities are ever changing, and you constantly feel like you only get projects to 80% complete before moving on to the next urgent need. Direction changes are reactionary to the pain of the day. This is somewhat expected in a small company that is trying to grow its customer base, but it could be improved.

    2) Bonus objects are often unrealistic and impossible to achieve. Seems like management struggles with how to implement the bonus program, but it's nice they have one.

    Advice to Management

    Easy - Communication effort and style. Far too often key decisions were delivered without explanation and in a short terse tone that made people feel confused as to the direction of the company. I think people really want to find meaning in what they are doing and to feel like they are a part of something bigger. DCIP has the potential to become something special, so management needs to cultivate and inspire that dream to the entire team.

    I have been working at DCIP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Current technologies being used throughout. Flexibility in work schedule. Free soda.

    Cons

    Technology based leadership is lacking skills in pretty much everything that matters:
    -team development/cohesion structure doesn't exist (every -man- for themselves),
    -project management has no depth it is only on the surface and very disorganized
    -employee development doesn't exist from a top down perspective, if you want to learn something find a way to force it into your work
    -customer relationship skill-level = novice to almost being offensive
    -inconsistent management approach
    -attempts to improve the any of the above is quickly shunned

    Advice to Management

    Technology leadership is badly needed, not sure there is any desire to learn/improve the skills. Great people that need leadership and some structure.

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. All employees are considered in decisions that affect them.

    Cons

    Location is out of the way if you like to go out and run errands or purchase lunch during breaks. There is on-site food service that can be tiresome.

    it was private so we had a lot of pizza parties

    Cons

    Management played favorites, very incompetent, throws out tasks but doesnt provide any explanations, very rude to their vendors, does not follow any policies and procedures because they have none so they just make them up as they go, there is no Human resource department, their benefits suck!

    Advice to Management

    try training your employees dont throw jobs at them

    Pros

    This company works on a product that is very identifable to the public which is exciting

    Cons

    This is the worst group of managers I have ever worked for.

    Advice to Management

    The senior leadership should be required to take a leadership course because they don't have any leadership ability currently
