    Pros

    DCS allows for growth in many directions. You can really soar at DCS if you are willing to look at yourself, determine your strengths and ask for management's help in placing you in a position that utilizes those strengths.

    Cons

    DCS is relatively small, so it is sometimes run like a family business. This can be frustrating to those who need more corporate structure, but that also helps the people who are willing to ask for help.

    Advice to Management

    DCS has done a great job through the many years of business. My only suggestion would be to continue looking towards the future.

    Pros

    DCS offers some unique benefits that you won't find at other companies. There is a high emphasis on up to date technology and training.

    DCS has such a diverse staff I am continuously learning more about people and places around the world.

    Cons

    Being located in Tysons Corner can be trying at times with traffic.

    Advice to Management

    Diversification in leaders, like with design, needs to be ever evolving. Maximize your staff skills and DCS will continue to be an industry leader for years to come.

    I would like to see a little more leadership roles being taken on from middle management.

    Pros

    Love the work environment- I always looked forward to to go work, and enjoyed the work place. Best place to work if you have a good team.

    Cons

    Sometimes the corporate structure can be a hindrance, so if you have an idea or suggestion, it can be very difficult to get the message accross.

    Advice to Management

    This is really a great place to work, but as long as everybody has the level headed attitude that the Principals have.
