    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.

    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.

    Pros

    None - I would rather have Ebola.

    Cons

    Its a culture run on fear and poor leadership.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be real leadership. It may do this company good to hire an outside consultant.

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

    Pros

    I honestly can not come up with any pros about DHA anymore. I used to enjoy my job, but it has changed radically in the past year.

    Cons

    Too many cons to list them all. The CEO needs to rely on input from others besides his trusted cronies.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that you don't know everything. Don't manage by intimidation and let good people do the jobs they were hired to do. Stop the arbitrary firings.

    I worked at DHA Group full-time

    Pros

    Nice office, coworkers friendly. I'm sure that working on a contract is a very different experience than working at the corporate office. This is mostly a review of the corporate experience.

    Cons

    As other reviewers have commented, the CEO has very little regard for work-life balance. He keeps toxic people who are not good team players. Very high corporate turnover. Since I left, I have only heard the same thing from current corporate employees - who have since left.

    Advice to Management

    The company has great potential. Just learn to trust your employees, understand you're not the smartest in the room, and learn to delegate.

    I worked at DHA Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, good work (initially).

    Cons

    Owner lead by personal feelings and personal relationships. Revolving door of good people.
