    Pros

    nothing.. really nothing at all

    Cons

    No BD, they hold on someone who cannot not even spell his name. Clueless COO.. not sure how she got the job.. VP of BD left for second time. He was feed up. ESOP is a joke. The CEO cashed the value of the company and now is going down in the tube. No leadership . They use you and they dump you with not explanation.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of dead wood and work for your employees.

    Pros

    Great environment on their CFTC contract. Great office location. The folks of the CFTC were a complete Joy to work with.

    Cons

    Management did not know how to run a team. They lost the CFTC contract. We had 5 Helpdesk Managers and 2 project Managers in 2 years of working their. That's Terrible!

    Advice to Management

    Do better! wf

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Management on contracts is usually MIA which is why they seem to lose contracts.

    Cons

    Contracts constantly being rebid and not always won.

    I worked at Digicon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I suppose the customers and fellow staff were pros. The benefits were average.

    Cons

    this company does not care about you. You are clearly only interested in the bottom line. Management is a joke. There is no direction, neither technical nor career.. You will **NOT** move up in this company. There are no lateral movements neither. You should enjoy your current vocation at Digicon. It is all you will ever do.

    Advice to Management

    It's not all about the bottom line. Invest in your employees. Provide career paths and options.

    I worked at Digicon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The Health benefits are pretty decent.

    Cons

    Be prepared to deal with people that don't do their jobs but tell you how to do yours even though they have zero qualifications. Executive admin runs the company.

    Advice to Management

    Leave the 80s behind. Dead wood needs to go. Treat people right. Don't bend the truth.
