    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.

    Review

    Director of Pricing (Current Employee) Fort Worth, TX (US)

    ProsGaffney's vision, leadership, mentoring. Completely different company since Cerberus bought us.

    Cons"It's not my job"; "It's the COE's fault", "COE's do not support us" and like statements from middle management and below that tarnish relationships.
    Common statements within BATs and COEs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't compound bad decision made several years ago and perpetuate it. It might be better to snap a chalk line and start over.

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