    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

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

    ConsThe location of work was pretty bad, it was southern Maryland and the cost of living down there was outrageous.

    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.
