    Training and communication among staff was great. Lots of young blood and graduate level staff.

    Cons

    Company depended on outside contract work.

    Advice to Management

    Better planning and preparation to grow the company in it's original location would have been beneficial to the company as well as to its employees.

    Pros

    There is nothing you can possible say that is good, This was the worst company ever to say they supported the warfighter. What a lie

    Cons

    Everything that was possible, the lying , thieving bastards got away but the devastation they left behind was unmeasurable

    Advice to Management

    Turn yourself into the authorities and plead guilty to embezzlement and fraud to the government. Ask for mercy from all the formal emplyees

    Pros

    They paid well, and fed us.

    Cons

    This place had more clowns on the payroll that Barnum and Bailey. The good workers did their job and kept their mouths shut, unfortunately there were a lot of incompetent individuals that were looked upon by management with high regard who thought they knew more than the rest of the employees. This was part of the downfall, when the government tells you (the client) they want things done a certain way you do it, these individuals went against the governments requests on several issues...this is part of the reason why this company catapulted into the toilet...High level management was also terrible...

    Advice to Management

    They got what they deserved...unemployment.

    I worked at DSCI (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good 1-year contract position in Saudi Arabia which provided a lot of travel over the entire country doing drive testing at more than 350 Motorola Tetra UHF Radio sites with Digital Microwave (AVIAT) BACKBONE.

    Cons

    Temperatures in Saudi Arabia can be extremely high at various locations and required the utmost in planning daily drives to radio sites.

    Advice to Management

    Get another contract like this one. It was great.

    Former Employee - Support Ops in Eatontown, NJ

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

    Pros

    The best thing to happen was to see this company go under. This was a company that abused its employees and abused government funds. I hope that the DCAA takes a very close look at everything that occurred at DSCI over the last few years and finally does something to the former CEO and his gang of friends and family that bilked the US Government for millions.

    Cons

    It is sad to see good people lose their jobs. Even at this rotten to the core company there were many good people. I hope to see them rebound and find the company they deserve to work for.

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

    Pros

    Excellent Wages, excellent benefits - the only benefit of working at DSCI is they do pay fairly generously compared to other companies of their size in the industry

    Cons

    This is a disorganized company that has many serious problems. Most of the issues stem from the senior management. Employees are berated publicly, and treated like children. Management will blame everyone and anyone for their own shortcomings and literally self-destruct the company at a moment’s notice. There are several employees that are "in the protected circle" due to nepotism and these employees can underperform and be immune from the… lay-offs that plague the rest of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up -- you are destroying lives of employees and the reputation of the company. It is time for drastic changes to this company or it won’t survive. It has been run into the ground by a micro-managing leadership team who can't seem to get it right.

    Pros

    Salaries are negotiable and they had good holiday parties. One was on a boat and the other was at medieval times.

    Cons

    Contract company and there is no job stability or room for advancement. The management did not communicate important information and you are forced to use leave for base closings.

    Advice to Management

    There is no room for advancement with this company. They laid everyone in the office off down to the VP because their money was funny.
