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

    Pros

    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

    Nothing at all. They were ALL thieves and did not care about the employees

    Cons

    They took our money for medical benefits, those who stayed until.the last did not get paid for the 3 days. No W2 will be sent out, but I'm pretty sure their family was well taken care of. When are they ALL getting put in jail? They stole millions of dollars from the government. They need to go to jail.

    Advice to Management

    They ALL sucked and did nothing for the money they made

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

    Pros

    The company knew how to sucessfully bid on gpvernment contracts (but not how to manage them).

    Cons

    Two critical aspects of working on government contracts are: 1.) vetting an employee''s credentials to ensure that they meet the requirements for education and work experience when being placed on a contract and 2.) ensuring employees report hours spent working on a contract in a timely and accurate manner. DSCI consistently failed at both and the company is no longer in business.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    After the latest revelation, absolutely none.

    Cons

    Word has filtered down to the former employees that the owner stopped paying premiums for dental and medical coverages for the employees in 2015 yet continued to take deductions from the employee paychecks until the doors were shut in March 2016. Another posting also stated the same shenanigans was done with the employee Flexible Soending Accounts. The owner was not alone in perpetrating this crime against the employees and everyone knows who she is. The only question that remains is when they are going to be carted off to jail.

    Advice to Management

    You reap what you sow. Criminal behavior demands justice. Good luck with trying to dodge this. Hopefully owner gets book thrown at him and does some serious time. As he loved to say at corporate events"no rest for the weary".

    Pros

    Coworkers. No other pros.

    Cons

    Operated by Steven DiChiaro and assorted family members who used employee medical and dental deductions to keep the company afloat. Closed its doors in March 2016. Since then, it's been learned that the employees' medical benefits were terminated on December 1st, 2015, yet Mr. DiChiaro continued to deduct the preimiums from the employees' checks, he terminated dental insurance on August 31st, yet continued to deduct the premiums (he did later reinstate the dental insurance), and he deducted FSA premiums from employee checks and, instead of forwarding the money to the FSA provider, kept the money.

    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.

    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.
