    I have been working at Data Recognition Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people at the site are great and the leaders really want people to succeed.

    Cons

    Minimal authority of people at the site to make decisions, everything must go through the home office. People get marks against them if they have to go to a doctor's appointment during normal working hours.

    Advice to Management

    Give the local leaders more authority and quit marking hard working people down for things like doctor's appointments.

  3. "Toxic management"

    I have been working at Data Recognition Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Variety of material to edit.

    Cons

    Certain senior content managers are notoriously incompetent yet insist on editorial control, which badly impedes quality and makes for a frustrating experience. Don't come here to edit if you value good writing.

  4. "Great Seasonal Test-Scoring Opportunity with Good Training"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Team Leader 

    I worked at Data Recognition Corporation full-time

    Pros

    This is an excellent seasonal opportunity to pick up some extra money by providing a valuable service. The training is well-calibrated to first-timers, so don't worry if you're new. Unsurprisingly, the people are fantastic, and the long-time returning employees want to help you succeed.

    Cons

    The work itself is repetitive and a bit dull at times, but you also have opportunities to see brilliance at work, which compensates for the tedium a bit. And the workplace is accessible only by traffic-choked routes, so the commute is beastly--but for a season, it is usually bearable.

    Advice to Management

    The training could stand to incorporate a few more instances of borderline scores to help Readers identify the nuances that could push a score one direction or the other. But if that is my only suggestion, you are on the whole doing pretty well.

    I worked at Data Recognition Corporation part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great starter job when I was fresh from college. Good people and the work can be very interesting sometimes.

    Cons

    Work gets kind of repetitive. Schedule isn't very flexible and they aren't very nice when you need to take time off for important reasons.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, relatively easy work

    Cons

    Inconsistent work hours so it wasn't exactly "full time." I worked overtime one week and maybe 16 hours the next

    Disapproves of CEO

    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.
