    I have been working at DCS Corp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work is interesting/challenging, flexible schedule, mandatory overtime is rare. Management places a premium on work/life balance. Great place for employees with families.

    Cons

    No sick leave.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    DCS is so bad that DCS will make you appreciate how good OTHER companies treat their employees.

    Cons

    Corrupt, Indifferent management (at least, on-site management).

    Low ball starting salaries.

    Different jobs are often assignee after you are hired and continue.

    Employees are treated like fifth class citizens.

    It can take one hour to get through the “front door” (the frong gate)!

    No flex hours, no mileage, no car allowance, no car maintenance, no covered parking (so extensive damage from the constant 100+ degrees and constant sun!

    No food allowance, no per diem, no housing/hotel/motel expenses, no re-location, no clothes cleaning allowance (and it's an extremely dirty and ghetto environment)!

    No coffee, no food, and not even a lunchroom! Where would you EVER find a work environment like this???!!!

    Car damage due to the extreme sun and extreme heat is unbelievable (ruins your tires, battery, interior, etc ; only two seasons-- extreme summer and extreme winter!
    It's basically in Death Valley (the most inhospitable place in the world)!

    DCS will low-ball the contract price to win the contract then lay off people or strip merit increases to pay for this!

    Later, if any money is left over before the contract is over, they will hire like mad to use up the extra money so they don’t look like they over-bid!

    Bottom Line

    STAY AWAY!!!

    Corrupt company that does not care about employees or treat them well or pay them well, with the worst working conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Have “360 reviews” (anonymous reviews and feedback by employees regarding local managers). You WILL be shocked! GUARANTEED.

    Local management uses employee isolation and employee intimidation to stop all (and any feedback) to off-site top (corporate) management so they have ZERO information or knowledge of how terribly bad the situation is or the level of collusion and corruption.

    The CEO should take a visit to Ridgecrest, California (China Lake, California) and have PRIVATE one-on-one conversations with EACH employee.

    He will be BLOWN AWAY by what he learns, the mistreatment, the corruption, and by the collusion.

    Pros

    No one bother you.

    Cons

    There's no social life. You sit in a room for 8 hours. If this what you want, then go a head. But I can assure you that this is not what you want.

    Advice to Management

    Training for newbie needs to improve.
