    I have been working at Data Systems Analysts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fair compensation
    Good benefits, including ESOP
    Employees are easy to get along with
    Direct access to upper management
    Management supportive of career path - even if it means moving around within the company
    Low turnover rate - many employees have been with company for years
    Loyal - will try to find work for you within the company or on a different contract if your contract ends

    Cons

    A more traditional IT/consulting company - not very innovative with ways to create a fun work environment
    Employees often keep to themselves within their office
    Few social activities (happy hours, company events, socializing with co-workers outside of the office)

    Advice to Management

    DSA is a great company to work for with a solid reputation. To be more attractive to new employees you should provide a more fun and open work environment with more interaction between employees.

    Pros

    good health insurance coverage, great employees, small company feel, direct managers readily provide feedback and growth opportunities. Easy access to other managers

    Cons

    poor management foresight when projects end, recent C-Level leadership have lead to cutting back of programs for employees, the opportunities for professional development have been cut back

    Advice to Management

    Don't stray from the core values that made DSA successful. Work to retain quality employees, provide more flexibility with benefits and training.
