    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.

    Pros

    Upper manager never come into the office. If you don't like ever seeing or communicating with the people you work for, then this is the place for you. If you're not a fan of praise or recognition, or acknowledgment in your existence at all, this is the place to work.

    Cons

    The contract management for my project micro-manage to the point that you feel like they are moving your diaphragm, forcing you to breath at their desired pace. They change policies and procedures without any recognition of the affect it will have on the employees or the project as a whole. Our project worked very well, meeting our federally required numbers each release, until the contract was 'given' to DCCA and the 'uppers' were given free reign to make whatever changes they entered their heads. The benefits are normal. There is nothing very special about the company. We had lunch with the 'upper-uppers' but they didn't introduce themselves to us. At the lunch we told them some of the issues we were having about the contract management and they gave all of us the impression that they didn't really care.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees make better workers than miserable employees. On our contract, there is nothing but misery. The turn-over rate may go up.
