Pros

The company hires some of the best talent in the industry, so they definitely know how to spot and recruit talent. They also tend to pay very well, to a degree.

Cons

However, after hire, the company treats its employees so poorly that they cannot stay. The best employees are replaced by the boss's entourage from other companies. There is ubiquitous and well-posted Social Contract that is absolutely not followed by anyone above the position of Director. The respect is all faked (lots of "Sir" and "Ma'am") but there is no cooperation between heavily-siloed departments and open contempt from senior leadership for the middle managers and employees. The management style is by threats and intimidation. So-called Management Incentive Pay is held hostage for Yes-men only and can be withheld on a whim or to get someone to resign.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Forget the sideways, used-up retired generals and bring some real business leaders in there. Take ethics complaints seriously, instead of retaliating and then sweeping the complaints under the rug.

    Pros

    Pay is good, employees work hard and do care. Ability to dive into new technology or philosophy is very good.

    Cons

    Management, Directors, CEO are horrible. They Promote a system of core values, but ultimately fail to live up to these same values. The same people who promote this system could care less about their employees. They do not listen to employees nor do they have any rational thoughts and have absolutely zero leadership skills. Same DI for the last several years. Nothing has changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to people who pump money into DI. Get rid of DI Ceo, Get rid of senior leadership. Start a fresh group of leaders who believe what they put forth and deliver results. Management is in meetings all day long and is never visible, they have no clue to what happens at DI.

    Pros

    Employees committed for achieving mission for love of country not company.

    Cons

    Leadership disconnected from the people, making millions at the expense of the people. Value system is no more than wall paper. No big wins especially to replace expiring contracts. Limited growth opportunities for employees, but most importantly layoffs in the future particularly with the war coming to an end. Company invested in the international development and intel fields but with poor results. The original aviation space seems to be the only stable area for now. Leadership is arrogant and communicates rarely and poorly with the people. Employees not loyal. No question bumpy ride regardless of the course with current leadership. Company probably be"for sale" sometime soon if not already. Company thrives on wars and with the war ending, company's future looks bleak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace leadership and get competent, unselfish and humble leaders with bigger and bolder ideas to run the company.
