    I have been working at Data Computer Corp of America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    DCCA is a great small-midsized company. Unlike most small businesses, they have many prime contracts so they have more options for job placement and choices in staffing. Company has a great continuing education policy that covers classes, seminars and conferences.

    Cons

    Can't think of too many downsides. The only downside might be that the staff is small enough that employees have to (or get to) be generalists, taking on some tasking outside their normal areas of expertise.

    Pros

    The Human Resource department, Sharon specifically, has been the best HR person I've ever worked with.
    The compensation package is comparable to others in the industry.
    The IT department is quick to resolve issues.
    Professional and friendly environment.

    Cons

    Management should be evaluated. Also, Personality tests prior to hiring is a suggestion. Some people do not work well in teams, and instead of learning lessons, they insist they are correct and 50+ others are wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your teams. Realize that people learn and listen differently. Try new approaches when your way doesn't work. Be willing to change and grow daily. Make sure all employees understand the goals. Respond to your emails. Do not use Comic Sans font and attach pictures to your signature if you want people to take you seriously. Using All Caps, red letters and underlining words in a group email is inappropriate and unnecessary. If there is miscommunication, make a phone call. Basically, learn email best practices and basic management skills.

    I worked at Data Computer Corp of America (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with and a pleasant environment. Challenging work being done, with a focus on enhancing current technologies.

    Cons

    Too much focus on large scale businesses. Major shutdowns to West offices due to East corporate overhaul of systems causing a loss of focus on smaller West clients.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of the clients that are not considered large, as the sum total of business these smaller clients do, will have a major impact on the bottom line.
