    I worked at d.e.Foxx & Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    No time clock, flexible hours

    Cons

    Benefits cost too much, 401k company do not match, management do not know how to manage-they are rude, and unprofessional. Benefits premiums dont start up on time which leaves employees and myself paying stress for the misses deductions. Employee portal does not track your vacation time or sick time and you cannot use the employee portal to request days off. Employee portal constantly shuts down. Open enrollment starts late (December) and you will have 3 days to make your elections. Very bias and sterotype environment. This company will add five positions on you because they are too cheap to hire other people so that your department can run effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Become more professional and develop effective communication. Also become a team player instead of being a jerk to assist employees when or wherever the help is needed.

    Pros

    - Good place to gain experience.
    - Laid back workplace
    - Great work-life balance

    Cons

    - Poor compensation
    - Poor leadership
    - No Accountability
    - Horrible HR - both Corporate and On-Site
    - No benefits
    - Since the salary is low, the people who work here don't care about their job - almost all of them are unapproachable and unfriendly (except very few)
    - Cheap business model
    - No innovation
    - Company has no culture or values

    Advice to Management

    - Pay people more
    - Hire better
    - Think about innovation
    - CEO does not care about his employees, he cares about his finances only.
    - Don't waste money in the state of the business - no one cares about the state of your business if you don't compensate enough.

    Pros

    Since everyone is working with multiple responsibility, you learn a lot. There is no other pros. They do H1B but you have to follow up a lot. Don't expect GC even if they say yes.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible
    Benefits are horrendous
    Management is poor
    No growth opportunity
    Poor work life balance
    No care for employees

    Advice to Management

    They need to learn how to keep employees happy

    Pros

    I have a lot on plate, which is a good for me because I want the experience early in my career. I wear a few hats which increases my knowledge of my job and the company.

    Cons

    Initiatives for change are not typically supported by upper management due to old business thinking.

    Pros

    You get a measly paycheck thats all but gone after you pay for the ridiculous benefit package they offer.

    Cons

    Everyone is overworked and under paid. Too many people concerned with how they look to upper management instead of getting the job done. No raises. If you don't get it in writing, it never happened!

    Advice to Management

    TAKE CARE OF YOUR EMPLOYEES! Spend some time at the office and reconnect with your company.

    Pros

    Nothing that I can think of.

    Cons

    This is one of the worst companies to work for. This is a company that has no value and treats employees like slaves. Production workers' health insurance policy is a scam. They do not provide proper insurance plans. They have no benefits. They have no proper training plan. P&G has been fooled by this organization. Overall, it is not an organization at all - lets call it a public zoo. A company with no values is no company at all. Join this company at your own risk.

    Advice to Management

    Management sucks. No one has the courage to make a change. Start treating employees as employees.

    I have been working at d.e.Foxx & Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - The company truly invests in their employees, effectively creating a low turnover rate at DEF headquarters.
    - There is a "Fresh Out" Program for recent graduates which I've found extremely helpful.
    - Competitive starting salaries, especially for recent grads.
    - Atmosphere is both friendly and professional. I've had a lot of questions that are usually always met with enthusiastic explanations.
    - The CEO is patient and understanding, while still requiring high quality and timely results.
    - This is my first position in business and I've been pleasantly surprised at the drive to maintain integrity from the executive level.

    Cons

    Nothing other than a lot of moving around due to temporary building changes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep invested in recent graduates and stay open to innovative ideas and projects.

    Pros

    Site culture depends on the site you are placed at.

    Cons

    Well where should I start from
    - They lie to you about your raise
    - Below average salary as compared to the amount of work
    - After a while they will ask you to do the same redundant work
    - They would ask you to spend all your time on a project and then would say no to invest. It's a nasty circle
    -No 401 K
    - Two weeks of paid leave that too cannot be rolled over.
    - Low medical benefits
    - Pathetic reimbursement policies, They ask you to pay first from your own pocket for every company travel and then sometimes it takes several months to reimburse you.
    - Don't get into their trap of mentioning they have big plans for you.
    Career opportunities
    - They can raise you to another title in three years but you will be basically doing the same thing with the same salary

    Advice to Management

    Don't just think about yourself think about your employees also. Start focusing on few important things rather than lots of non important things.

    Pros

    Employees gain exposure to many different levels of responsibility because of the small size of the organization and the very small staff.

    Cons

    Being a small company with big aspirations, d.e. Foxx offers lots of promise with very little support to back up their claims, promises to clients and career progression for employees. This company is moderately successful despite poor management and organization structure. What essentially keeps them going is their connection to a Cincinnati-based consumer goods giant who spoon feeds them work based on Foxx and it's satellite companies (Versatex, Validex, XLC Services, Foxx Construction, Xerve) being MBE owned.

    There is no performance management system, therefore no formal structure for obtaining feedback on job performance and little opportunity for salary increases or career progression. Whether an employee is a so called "fresh-out" campus hire or a long-termer, you're screwed financially. Because of the lack of staffing, the work is piled on high and employees are expected to work ridiculous hours and be "on call" at all hours to get the work done.

    Advice to Management

    The owner is a single-minded guy who has his own ideas about how to manage his company. He's always looking for the next great idea while not fully developing what he has. No amount of advice will ever be considered by this guy.
