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

    Pros

    Decent salary. Good supervisors & training.

    Cons

    Telling us that there was solid work through the end of June, then pulling the rug out from under us on the 25th of May.
    I'm losing over $2,000 I was counting on & desperately need.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your promises! How could they possibly end work 5 entire weeks early from what we were promised.

    Pros

    All the management I have met have been extremely nice and helpful. You receive very thorough training. All the scorers have at least bachelor's degrees so they are a professional group of people.

    Cons

    It's a temporary position that ends mid-summer.

    Pros

    GREAT hours, good Co. They give you everything needed to do your job. If you do what you are supposed to do you are LEFT ALONE! They treat employees VERY WELL!

    Cons

    Pay could be a bit better. You will NEVER get a permanent position w/this co. They just don't have enough constant demand.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating people well, and they will continue to come back!

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

    Pros

    If you are a quick reader, this is a fairly easy job.

    Cons

    Dull, not a real job. Just sitting at a terminal all day grading kids essays which is interesting some of the time. I am apparently not a fast reader so my completion rate was lower than most.

    Pros

    Library like work environment, though it's not strictly adhered to, is needed to do job well. Some times some people get too noisy

    Cons

    You must work every hour of M-F shift to earn weekly bonus - NO Flexibility to work more one day to go to the dentist another day that week. Break area is meagre and sterile looking - vending machines with JUNK though there are fridges for you to pack a healthy meal or snack. Going out for food is not an option due to location

    Advice to Management

    People with skills as well as longevity advance to Team Leader, Testing Leader and other levels. Most of these slots are also part time and seasonal, making DRC a very good place to have as a 2nd income,

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

    Pros

    Currently viable company, good people and nice offices. Good work-life balance as most work occurs during standard office hours.

    Cons

    Out-of-touch executives running company. If owner doesn't like you, you are not in good standing and this is communicated to employees at every level. I have seen bright people come and go because they are not treated well/fairly.

    Advice to Management

    Your ability to service contracts and the students reliant on those assessments should be based on the very best people handling the work. Consider shifting to merit-based reviews of your employees. Good work will serve your bottom line as well.

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

    Pros

    I worked for DRC at their Pittsburgh Reading Center. In many ways it was the best job I ever had. It allowed me to meet the smartest and most talented group of people I've ever met, and many of us still stay in touch with one another.

    Cons

    After having been told by a senior corporate official that the Pittsburgh Reading Center was one of the best in their corporation, they (DRC) showed their appreciation by shutting our center down, after only a few months of operation.

    Advice to Management

    In closing down the Pittsburgh Reading Center you made a big mistake. If it was still open, I'd still be working there by choice. So would many of my friends.
