    I worked at DPRA full-time

    Pros

    Everyone gets an office. Good environment for the self-disciplined and self-starters, with high level of patience. Don't have to try very hard to do an exceptional job. Good pay with better than average benefits.

    No quality upper-level leadership. Management is based on tenure; not performance or value. Mediocrity is accepted as a good thing.

    I worked at DPRA full-time

    Pros

    DPRA is a small company and each office feels like a small family. Senior management communicates effectively with their employees and knows just about everyone that works under them. Also, the benefits here are great.

    Cons

    DPRA relies heavily on government contracts which might be their own downfall. Also, not too sure if the company will exist in the long term. Senior management seems to want to cash out of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Add to your company's capabilities to stay afloat in the long term.
