      I worked at Data Recognition Corporation full-time

      Pros

      There is potential for greatness, benefits are above average. The individual team members outside of executive management are smart and engaged.

      Cons

      Executive management team is a nightmare. Old friends network, no business experience, horrific communication and absolutely no planning or understanding of what goes on in their ranks. Super political and everyone tip toes around the owner, lying to keep their job.

      Advice to Management

      Retire the entire executive team and hire some business professionals that understand culture and profitability.

      I worked at Data Recognition Corporation full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Good pay, easy work 9 months out of the year.

      Cons

      Very political, lots of people friendly to your face but will undermine you behind your back

      Advice to Management

      Don’t feed “the games” that are being played all the time, remove the department divisions and if you make a policy it should be enforced year round and not just when it is busy. You are in charge, not the associates!

      Pros

      Pay is ok and PTO time if fine.

      Cons

      This company does not value their employees. Lack of direction. Often people are put in positions that do not know the product or job. No loyalty from this company. Company continuously deceive and lie to employees.

      Advice to Management

      Stop making erratic decisions.

      I have been working at Data Recognition Corporation

      Pros

      I want to split this review into two: the local office, and the home office. Our local office is really 5 stars: it has dedicated management, kind and helpful co-workers who work with you because they want the project and you to succeed, and a large lunch room facility with double the fridges and microwaves as the last place. The home base out of Minnesota is very good too, and they do their best to make certain we know...

      Show More

      Cons

      Due to the flexibility and instability of the test-grading market, the home office doesn't often tell us what projects are coming/going to be available to work, when they will start, or even how many employees they will need until approximately 1-2 weeks before it starts. That is what keeps DRC back to 4 stars. If your schedule is flexible or adaptable, this should not be a problem.

      Pros

      Very cohesive work environment, supportive, and friendly. State of the art technologies, and great mission in education, and benefits/pay are great! Solid career opportunities here, don't bypass this company if you're thinking of a job move.

      Cons

      Sometimes communication can get stifled at the leadership level.

      Advice to Management

      Better communication at the top would be helpful.

      Pros

      o Good Insurance Benefits

      Cons

      DCR makes poor decisions regarding retention of key employees. I do not believe that they fully understand the products they have recently acquired or the demands of supporting them.
