    I worked at Data Recognition Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people in all departments, and from the guys in the cafeteria all the way up to CEO. Fun, relaxed place to work. I've never seen so many people get along so well together; in that regard it really is a special company. Highly recommend.

    Cons

    Advancement is tough since retention is so high. Lots of people there who have been there for many years, which is a good thing overall, but if advancing up an org chart is among your goals, it's a traffic jam of many well-qualified people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I have been working at Data Recognition Corporation part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    At DRC they really appreciate their employees. It is a very comfortable place to work. Nice facilities. Great management. At DRC they have a knack for good hires. Everyone I have met seems genuinely very happy to be working for DRC.

    Cons

    As a reader you are evaluating tests. It is quiet work with a lot of reading at a computer screen and making quick decisions. It is a temporary position.

    Advice to Management

    None, just Kudo's.

    Pros

    I am interested in all things education, so even a chance to understand the grading of standardized tests (which is what I did at DRC) was interesting. Interpreting rubrics always led to some interesting questions. Unfortunately, scorers don't have much say in what the rubrics are. But the people were very friendly including Scoring Directors and Team Leads. Pretty relaxed environment too. Pay is pretty good for what you do. Pretty flexible with schedules, but of course they'll want people who are available for entire projects over others who are not.

    Cons

    You sit all day aside from 2 breaks and a 30 min lunch. Simple, but monotonous. Plus test-scoring is a seasonal position.

    Advice to Management

    All Scoring Directors and Team Leads that I interacted with (even the new ones) were all friendly, but let you know what they and their managers wanted done.
