    Pros

    Strong market position, limited competition

    Cons

    Frustrating in their ability to take advantage of market opportunities. DG has a history of writing their own press and then believing it to be true.

    Advice to Management

    Look to the market and your market facing employees to identify areas of change and growth. Ask the hard questions and challenge the answers you receive from within.

    Pros

    The company is financially very successful, so job security is great. Since they do some work essentially as a defense contractor, they do not outsource jobs, which is obviously another boon for job security. Some (but not all) of the groups use leading edge technologies, which makes the technical work more interesting and valuable on the resume.

    Cons

    I haven't seen much promotion from within, despite the huge list of open positions. There is also some disfunction between groups that should be working closely together, but prefer (for whatever reason) to work in their own silo.

    Advice to Management

    The company has done a good job of hiring capable people, we should extend the value of that hiring practice by doing a better job of promoting from within.
