    I worked at DCS Corp full-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    I have been working at DCS Corp full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Employee owned, 401k, ESOP, decent amount of vacation, can basically work your own schedule

    Cons

    Has too many lazy employees, no discipline of any kind, some employees work 4-5hrs a day while others are forced to pick up the slack, hire people to offices halfway across the world even though the customer is local and requests on site help.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your customers, hire people where they are needed not to places were your "buddies" are in charge, filter out the cancerous employees because there are plenty of them. To the cry baby below no need to bash people on there opinion, and to be honest your probably one of the "cancerous employees" from the Littleton office.

    I worked at DCS Corp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are really nice to work with, good work life, home life balance. College reimbursement program.

    Cons

    Management is disconnected, they do not know what their employees do, and will only act when prompted by the customer. During the evaluations, they had no clue what I did for the year and give everyone an average evaluation

    Not competitive, they cannot compete with the automotive industry, and pay employees who work extremely hard well below average.

    Not much room for growth.

    Pay raises are non existant and you must leave the company to make anything more than a 2%.
