I have been working at DSCI full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The company has a wonderful 401k and education reimbursement policy, pay is above defense contractor average. At a company of over 800 employees, only about 5 or 6 people are related to the CEO and only one of them is upper management, the rest are everyday employees. So first and foremost, the claims of nepotism are clearly exaggerated. The companies stock is at the highest its been during my tenure (almost 6 years), and the company is pursuing and winning more contracts than ever. The CEO started this company from basically nothing, lost it briefly to investors a few years ago, and was brought back in with overwhelming support by the employee stockholders. Clearly these 20 or so comments about the CEO and nepotism are outweighed by the other 800 employees who truly understand how much the CEO cares for the company and employees.

Cons

While there is more job security in the corporate side, those working in the other divisions are treated to a different standard (shorter hours, higher pay for same work). Unfortunately contracts run their course and end, and layoffs are made. This does create a frantic environment for job security, but a large portion of the employees seem to find other work in the company until the next contract.

Advice to Management

If you want to save money, look to get rid of those in management roles instead of cutting corners and penny pinching for the worker bees. Many of the upper staff have no clear job there and are making some real good money and remain there for years until the CEO realizes the company is bleeding money for these useless positions given to people on past merit that never comes to fruition.

    I have been working at DSCI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None. Benefits average for Defense Industry.

    Cons

    The building in Eatontown is a converted Health Care Equipment warehouse that the CEO bought on the cheap then tried to convert to an office building. It didn't work. Terrible ventilation, light, kitchens and bathrooms. You have to pay a monthly fee to the company to use the gym and the rules are so ridiculous hardly anyone does. Management and company are unethical throughout. Nepot

    Advice to Management

    Management should be in jail

    I worked at DSCI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent pay, top notch facilities, cutting edge technology. Easy interview process (not sure if this good or bad - they should probably more thoroughly interview candidates) Generous benefit package and PTO.

    Cons

    Unethical top management, serious ethics violations, mistreatment of staff by management. Major nepotism problems. The only secure positions are those who are "in the CEO's circle" and they keep their jobs whether competent or not. Zero flexibility when it comes to time - its be there or take vacation time. Working from home is occasionally accepted but seriously frowned upon. Hypocrisy when it comes to management, they do not practice what they preach.

    Employees are threatened termination and/or no raises for minor infractions. Senior management has publicly ridiculed employees for little or no reason. Questionable financial practices.

    The company has struggled to keep major contracts and achieve new ones and there have been significant layoffs. Promises are made during the interview process that management has no intention of fulfilling. Very little job security.

    Wasteful spending on unnecessary items and penny pinching in areas that would be more productive. Employees are expected to do overtime, overnight, with little to no warning and no consideration.

    This list could go on and on... This is not a company I would recommend to anyone unless they were desperate for a job.. Even then - I would take the position and continue to look for a more stable, more employee friendly company.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate management technique - don't blame the employees for all the problems. Never hold a meeting and retroactively threaten peoples pay. Make this a friendlier place to work and work on the important things such as securing new contracts and making a bright future for DSCI. This company will not survive in the condition it is in.
