    Pros

    Good 401k plan, vacation time.

    Cons

    Upper management is out of touch with the people on the floor. There is total incompetence in middle and upper management. There is a lot of lying and undeliverable promises being made by middle and upper management. There are too many directors and layers of management. The company has drifted from a culture of empowerment to one where it feels like we are riding in the backseat of a drunk driver's car. The employees on the floor are not supported, stabbed in the back and made to take responsibility for all of management's poor decisions. Many in management have no idea what we do as a company and just keep seats warm. They do not understand what it takes to succeed. This is the result of not promoting from within and maintaining a country club style of management with the typical "old boy club". Also, having an untrustworthy hr dept that does not support the staff. Hr colludes with management and does not respect employee privacy.

    The pay is good and the benefits are very competitive. If you like constant change then this place is for you.

    Cons

    Upper management is out of touch with what is really needed down on the floor. The hiring practices and interview technique is tired and old fashioned. There are definite hallmarks of a good ole boy network.

    Pros

    Some the people here will work with you, help in anyway to get a project done

    Cons

    I have worked on a few projects here in FDBU and I can honestly say this place should be avoided at all cost. Unless you swing a golf club and part of the High Society Circle of management you will get NO WHERE. I have seen many co-workers who are very educated some even with PhD leave this hell whole of a company, why? They promote their friends and keep a tight notched circle. Yes, that good old boy relationship is live and well in FDBU. We recently had a survey that outlined every wrong about our company, and then the dog and pony show started till everyone forgets about the survey. Don’t work here unless it’s the only place to get a JOB.

    Pros

    The work is progressing medical care, so from that prospective it is rewarding. Beyond that there are few pros.

    Cons

    Diosynth has had more layoffs than other area company. Policy is to hire when they are proposing and layoff if they don't land the project. Since it is a single location company the career opportunities are few. Senior management often promotes unrealistic grandiose plans for growth. Since Diosynth's business is based on supplying services, extremely long hours for the salary staff is demanded.
