      Pros

      Dexis continues to impress me. They aren’t perfect, but they are really thoughtful and intentional about organizational management and growth. Haven’t been here too long, but it generally seems like they do what they say they will do and have really good corporate communication and transparency.

      Cons

      None that I can think of right now.

      Pros

      Growing business winning new work and buying companies. Fast-paced environment. Terrific colleagues.

      Cons

      Change is a constant - which is great if you like change, hard if you don't.

      Pros

      Forward-thinking company; dedicated, fun staff; opportunities for growth; good benefits.

      Cons

      Job functions vary widely across the company, even for the same job title and description on paper. Some junior-level staff are very overworked while others don't have enough to keep them busy.

      Pros

      Empowers individuals to take risks, find solutions, and make a difference. Focuses on client satisfaction. Works hard to maintain positive corporate culture as it continues to grow into new markets. Thoughtful, intentional growth. Leadership willing to mentor. Invested in well being and shows this through benefits.

      Cons

      Honestly, compared to where I've worked before, it's hard to point much out.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Dexis is full of smart, go-get-em types, most of whom are willing to do jump into completely new things to help one another out. I work on a lot of proposals and watching bid teams comprised of people from across the company who probably haven't worked together as a team before come together and work effectively (and have fun) is always inspiring to see. I admire and learn so much from our Senior Leadership, and am glad that they mostly trust Manager-level staff to run the day to day business and spend a lot of time preparing for the future, 3+ years down the line. We have really good benefits including some that are virtually unheard of in the development space like paid maternity/paternity/adoption leave, infertility coverage, and flexible work hours/remote work. PTO increases with tenure, starting at just 2 years. Accounting/Payroll has been a sore spot for years but recent hires (Kenya!) have made things so much better already.

      Cons

      Experiences vary by project team, and by Division/Department, but leadership is aware of the discrepancies and trying to resolve them so that employees are treated as similarly as possible no matter who their supervisor is. HQ will be moving offices soon (timing unclear; dependent on sale of the current office), likely to somewhere in Virginia (Rosslyn is what we've heard) and so that may make some people's commutes a bit tougher.

      Conflict of interests and so much incompliance

      Pros

      Dexis is great in organizing Happy Hours, and parties. Unlimited booze!

      Cons

      The personnel of contracts department does not have much knowledge in federal regulations and find themselves noncompliance. They're the first one who violate the regulations. Apparently, they do not have a basic concept of "conflict of interest", two friends from the previous employer were hired, and the personnel who was at Dexis before were pushed out. The Contracts Department does not adhere to the Federal Acquisition Regulation due to the lack of knowledge and experience. Recently two individuals were hired that have never worked with contracts. Whenever, there're a real need in real expertise, the consultant is hired. Another significant problem is that the same regulations are interpreted and applied differently depending on the seniority of the staff.

      Dexis Consulting Group Response

      CEO

      I appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback. As you know by having worked here, the management team takes feedback seriously. We cannot delete reviews even if we disagree. You are also familiar with the multiple internal feedback channels (anonymous staff engagement survey, project pulse survey, etc.) and a feedback loop process – I report operating unit performance in our quarterly town halls. You have possibly been part of the usual government and corporate audits -- so there is also that quality layer. I checked against your review and the data we have from staff and clients show finance, accounting, and contracts team are delivering on time and at the standards demanded. Our audits have never alleged misrepresentations or improper controls -- ever. Yes, there is a strong referral network at Dexis. It should be. Literature shows that staff-referred new hires tend to be better performers and stay with their organizations longer. But decisions are made through scoring criteria, so there is no chance of “friends and family” if you do not meet the bar. I have asked that leadership treat your comments with an open mind - reviewing them for facts versus allegations, and what it can do to address perceptions even if these may not always match reality. Thanks again, really.

      Pros

      there is not much to say

      Cons

      The accounting at Dexis is really screwed up. The CFO and his deputy hire only those who have no experience, and no education. So many violations, that's why they are not interested in hiring experienced accountants, they like to sweep the dirt under the rug.. They hire their friends and incompetent personnel who will not speak up about the criminal activities in their department.
