    I worked at Data Recognition Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Great place, great people. Good place to work. Lots of opportunities for promotion. You will encounter people from all walks of life.

    Cons

    Seasonal employment. Work can be very monotonous. Even though you must have a bachelor's degree, it's run like a factory.

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow some of the leaders to harass your bottom tier. Respect and impartiality is paramount to the continued success of the company.

    I worked at Data Recognition Corporation part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is pleasant, the managers actually care about the employees and will actively go out of their way to help. The work as a whole isn't particularly difficult. You get good bonus pay for working overtime, and the base pay is pretty good, too.

    Cons

    The software used for grading frankly sucks. On top of that, the system goes down far too often, halting work for people for anywhere between 1 minute and 15 minutes. The work is seasonal, so it's not a steady job at all, though once you're in their system you're in for good, and they may call you back at a later date for more work. Not many opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    FIX. YOUR. SOFTWARE. You're throwing away productivity by skimping on the internet connection and software, leaving workers to sit and twiddle their thumbs for a couple extra hours a week, minimum.

    Management and poorly run product launches

    Advice to Management

    Treat your direct reports like you would like to be treated. Respect employees that help you keep your job.

    Pros

    Corporate culture is incredibly welcoming and pleasant, no bad apples.

    Cons

    It's project to project work so the money while good is not consistent.

    Pros

    the other staff (leadership) were great

    Cons

    the management was pretty awful.

    Advice to Management

    create some sort of incentive for actual work accomplished instead of butt in the seat type stuff. No incentive to make bonus other than attendance.

    I worked at Data Recognition Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked full time/temporary grading standardized tests in one of the scoring centers. The training was very thorough and working conditions were good. It would be awesome if the projects lasted longer, but that is the nature of the business. Most team leads were helpful and patient. It was fun to celebrate the completion of a project as a group ~ treats are appreciated!

    Cons

    There is, unfortunately, a somewhat "cliquey" culture between returning test scorers who have done this for years, and the newer employees. Everyone learns at a different rate and it's good to be respectful of what each person brings to the position. Only other real "con" is the dependability of the work load which has to be expected with a temporary assignment and fluctuating work coming in from different states.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work managing all the different needs of the employees which are constantly changing each scoring period. Everything went very smoothly regarding the hiring process, being assigned to projects and being paid correctly/on time.

    I have been working at Data Recognition Corporation part-time

    Pros

    Nice atmosphere and co-workers. Good pay starting at $15.00/hour, if you have a 4-year degree. If you are looking for a seasonal job, this one is good.

    Cons

    Seasonal work only. Do not know project schedules very far in advance, making it more difficult to schedule any needed appointments ahead of time. No benefits and no paid time off. Amount of work available varies from year to year.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with readers about project schedules, the overall length of the scoring season, and what's going on in the company in general.
