    Pros

    Workplace was clean had up to date programs and equipment. Work parties, other employees were helpful.

    Cons

    Don't expect to learn a whole lot when on a project (little to no experienced engineer), most of the engineers don't have time to train you. If you have little to no experience, don't expect to work there for to long as you will most likely get laid off with in a year.

    Great people to work with, good opportunties to advance your career, good work atmosphere. A variety of jobs available to expand your skills and opportunities to learn new skills.

    A lot of DSI's projects are in the automotive industry, which brings the ups and downs of the industry. As they continue to diversify the up and downs will be reduced.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good job, it has been a rough couple years but you have come throught the difficult times in position to grow the company.

    Pros

    Great experience with operational type analyses. Exposure with high-ranking officers from customer base. Good mentorship and expertise within company ranks.

    Cons

    Sub-par salary structure as a result of a non-diversified customer base (victim of a rollercoaster type industry). Working long hours without any incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Need to at least bring the salary up to the average level in the area. Take care of the existing talent pool.
