    Pros

    DGF is a great employer, with excellent benefits, good pay, and a great place to learn and develop. There are various methods of training, which DGF supports and does not hold back on. If you have potential, it is easy to be successful in this organization. I recommend working here, just be careful.

    Cons

    There are few cons at this organization, specifically Miami station, but they speak in large volumes. The security is a joke, as are the persons managing it, they know it. I underwent 4 "restructures", exiting during the 5th. Someone is always trying to reinvent the wheel to stay ahead in the industry at the cost of service to the customer, knowingly. Change is always good, but not when you don't know what you're doing.
    Mgmt likes to turn the blind eye on the real issues but excel in identifying the minimal matters and pointing fingers as long as they can manipulate numbers. Current local mgmt is very manipulative, they all talk bad about one another, and the entire building knows everything said in the meeting you just exited, right before you exited.

    Advice to Management

    At the corporate level, get more involved and 'in the know' of the local issues, keep moving the company FORWARD. To local mgmt, stop biting the hand that feeds you. I was actually told by a specific mgmt member that they were better because they has their educational BS. Is that BS or what? Best of luck with that.
