    Pros

    I have been working at DGA for several years and it has been a very good experience.
    I enjoy coming to the office every day and working with very nice people who are dedicated to providing great service to our clients. The management is very approachable and patient, allowing me the time and space to learn and adapt to the daily challenges we face in the service business. My work is challenging and rewarding at the same time. The balancing of hard work, persistence and a positive approach has allowed me to experience success.

    Cons

    There is nothing that I can think of to write in this space. DGA has become a professional home to me and I feel very fortunate to be on the team.

    Pros

    Excellent Sales Training Program
    Accessible management structure that really cares about customers and growth of the Sales Team.
    Constant advancements in technology lets me sell more to a wider range of customers.
    Excellent commission and benefits package like I have never seen anywhere else.
    Long term and caring management team
    Modern facility with all of the technology that I need to do my job
    A very family oriented atmosphere with a clear path to success for those who want to work hard and enjoy the rewards that their hard work has developed.
    Overall a great place to work and grow.

    Cons

    You can spend your days complaining about how bad this and that is at DGA but then you look at the long term tenure of the majority of the people working at DGA and you can see that they are clearly doing something right. I try to spend my days focusing on the many positives at DGA.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing as it makes my job much easier when I truly believe in the product and the people behind the product.

    Pros

    Great Work/Life Balance
    Family Oriented
    Excellent Benefits & Vacation
    Always looking to put the right people in the right positions.
    Comfortable Working Environment

    Cons

    Company can be a bit inflexible in terms of dress codes and lack of availability to work remotely. Simple things can take too long to fix, and complex problems aren't always given the correct amount of time to address/correct.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management could engage staff level employees more. Ask for feedback (anonymously) from staff (new and tenured) to see what changes the company should consider making.

    I cannot say something bad about this company everything was good and smooth good relationship with management and some employee I was only little bit angry about my salary I was working for 5 years and when they hired new helpers company gave them almost the same money as I make. I hate to shave with razor :) I left just because I opened up my own business otherwise I stay. Good Luck

    Advice to Management

    Respect all of your employee and employee will respect management. Try to listened first and understand not judging right the way

    Management always have challenging software development assignments you as a developer will enjoy. Embracing and supportive working environment. Nice new office space in NYC and Union,NJ.

    You have to wear formal clothes.

    Having access to payroll portal would be nice. Uniformed and formalized way of reporting building/janitorial issues is a must.
