    Excilerating

    Office Assistant (Current Employee) Huntsville, AL (US)

    ProsNo two days are ever the same. Since this company has locations all around the world. There is always something happening, 24/7. The opportunity for growth is excellent. The general overhead is low, so everyone wears many hats. I am learning something new everyday. I love interacting with people all over the world. I get to work with true american heroes. The ethics are top notch. There is a social contract that is signed and followed to the letter. This definitely makes for a very pleasant work atmosphere. The leadership training is relevant immediately to our managers, not just something they can use in the future. I love it here.

    ConsYou need to be available 24/7, 365. They keep the overhead low, but this creates a bottleneck sometime to get something processed. Some of the software applications need to be updated and more user friendly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer the bonuses to everyone, not just managers. This is truly a team environment. Everyone on the team needs to be rewarded, not just the managers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Quality Corporate Ownership and Leadership

    Director In Human Resources (Current Employee) Fort Worth, TX (US)

    ProsOur Owner and our Chairman/CEO are the best that I've worked for. They always seem to have the DI Star in mind when they must make those tough decisions regarding staffing. I have never seen the CEO unkind--firm, yes, demanding, yes, but kind.

    ConsThe uncertainty for the company staff because of the uncertain win or lose in government contracting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more all-hands communication

    Love this company.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company is full of intelligent, helpful, team players.

    ConsThe company has made benefit cuts to compete with this poor economy. I hope once the economy turns around the company will remember that the employees gave up benefits in bad time hoping to have them returned with good times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember to coach and mentor your employees, they are an investment.

    Awesome Dynamic Company

    EOD Specialist/Security Lead/Senior EOD Technical Adviser (Former Employee) Kabul (Afghanistan)

    ProsGreat HR, Finance Department.Excellent compliance ethos. Never an issue with corporate, and they went many extra miles when abrupt endings occurred on contracts they had.

    ConsSome Senior project management lacked skills in administrating and managing people. Many were hired for their credentials, rather then their abilities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have a good program, provided excellent overall support and handled the day to day issues well. More clarity of what field management can and can't do would be appreciated.
