    I worked at DHA Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Work/Life balance!
    Flexibility
    Engaged Management
    DHA upgraded my clearance.

    Cons

    Contract ended sooner than I would have liked. However this was not DHA's fault rather it was due to viscous DLA office politics. As far as I am concerned DHA went above and beyond trying to support DLA.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I appreciated the monthly meetings with senior management. I also appreciated David Hale sitting down with me during on-boarding and taking a personal interest in my geospatial work.

    Pros

    Down to earth company. Not a lot of overhead, meetings and bs you get from some contractors. They mainly just pay you and leave you alone (all I ever wanted!).

    Cons

    Health insurance isn't cheap. Outside of that the only negative things I've seen/heard are from this site.

    Advice to Management

    Liquor before beer, you're in the clear and Beer before liquor, never been sicker....

    Stay thirsty my friends.

    I worked at DHA Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I'm not working for them anymore.

    Cons

    I was terminated with no definite answer. I suspect because she commited a security violation that I am required to report. Less than three months later, she fired me for no reason at all! They hired another coworker of ours to specifically babysit us and report back to them if his feelings were hurt and keep a daily log of all our interactions with him in hopes that they can have terms to fire us and then do so with nor reason. I'm an Iraq war vet NCO and Ive never experienced such ate up leadership in my 14 years of career.

    Advice to Management

    Relieve the leadership that are the one's that are OBVIOUSLY the ones that are in the wrong and act like they're in middle school when she's in her 40's.

    Pros

    None that I am aware of.

    Cons

    It is rare that you encounter an organization where the leadership team knows everything there is to know about everything. If you don't believe this is the case at DHA, just ask them.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe start actually listening to the inputs you solicit from employees, instead of just pretending to do do.

    DHA believes in customer service first for their employees.

    Cons

    We don't have as many social events as we used to.

    I worked at DHA Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    DHA encourages professional development through tuition assistance. Culture encourages collaboration. 401K Matching is good. DHA regularly engages employees and subcontractors through 1 on 1 meetings, lunches & dinners.

    Cons

    Prepare for 60+ hours per week if you're salaried. Outside DC area, medical plans cost more.

    I have been working at DHA Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You'll be treated like gold the first few weeks of employment. You can easily negotiate offers. Bargain for more PTO.

    Cons

    You're just a butt in a seat. You'll be forced to work for people you won't respect, headed by a phony, money hungry CEO. The Senior leaders are a complete joke!! They think the sun rises and sets on them but they're just bags of hot air. You'll be stretched to fit on proposal teams that won't win and when your team loses, you'll be out on the street. DHA has a horrible reputation for terminating great employees with no notice and no cause. Do yourself a favor and do not work here!!

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourself, get a clue. Learn that you're not the smartest people in the room!

    I worked at DHA Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only good thing about DHA is their insurance.

    Cons

    Like most small business's they underbid a contract to win it and then low ball the incumbents to try to get them to stay. Their CEO says he has an open door policy, but the first time you bring up any issue he threatens to fire you.

    Their HR department is a complete mess and unless it has grown its comprised of 1 over worked person who never responds to emails. Their recruiters are pretty bad too as they lie to you to get you to sign an offer letter and then come time to start on the contract they all the sudden decide they can't pay you that salary anymore and your stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    Advice to Management

    stop underpaying your employees and don't lie to them. Someone with a TS clearance is not worth the same as someone with a Secret.
