    Pros

    DAC was an incredible place to work. The technical work was the most interesting and challenging around, colleagues were exceptionally bright, and the small company feel was both warm and entrepreneurial.

    Cons

    Twice acquired, so no longer exists as an independent entity.

    Pros

    Benefits are good, this includes leave, pay, 401k, Good training company. Get in there learn what you can. If looking to move on you may need to leave

    Cons

    Not too many growth opportunities. You will be the role you get hired for. So have swagger, sit for3-4 years and get out.

    Good Day-to-Day Place to Work

    Jun 28, 2019 - Software Engineer in Arlington, VA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Competitive salary, flexible hours, no expected or unreported overtime, smart and friendly coworkers, and plenty of opportunities for skill growth. Managers are very supportive and understanding to when and where you get your work done as long as you do get your work done.

    Cons

    Mediocre healthcare, and little internal investment: almost all work has to be done for and charged directly to government contracts.

    Great work but very political work environment

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and most of the business office is friendly

    Cons

    The gossip and rumor mill is out of control. People who represent the leadership team stab their own employees in the back. There is no punishment for the favorites in the company. If you don't play into office politics, good luck. The team leaders will alienate you until you feel forced to quit. Horrible PTO compared to competitors of only 25 days which includes sick and holidays.

    Most innovative company I have ever worked for

    Dec 3, 2016 - Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You are offered the opportunity to develop the most innovative technologies across many areas. Junior hires (and even interns) work on some of the most difficult problems from day one. The team is highly collaborative and multi-disciplinary. Employees owners have the opportunity to work on many projects and work on the most in-demand technology areas: cloud computing, big data analytics, natural language processing, and image/video processing. To stay on top of the latest in academia, the company regularly partners with some of the best universities and academics in the world. Employees owners are encouraged to submit their results to the best conferences (i.e., ACL, CVPR, CHI) and, if accepted, will pay for you to attend and present. Everyone is encouraged to generate new ideas and submit them through a proposal process to get funding to build solutions. In addition to the technical pros, the company has an "open-book" policy where the financial details of the company are shared with everyone. The CEO is frank and honest with employees and has an open door policy. Problems are dealt with head on.

    Cons

    You will be asked to split your time across more than one (sometimes several) projects at once. For those that desire to work on one big project this can be challenging. Due to the nature of the work, there is a nearly continuous proposal cycle although those that participate (and especially succeed) are rewarded. Because it is difficult to find the right people to do this work there are bursts where work-life balance is a challenge.
