the most popular questions

A: Founded by a driven entrepreneur with a street gut approach to doing business, if you have the skills, attitude, honesty, work ethic, and sincere desire to help every one of your teammates succeed, then literally the “sky is the limit” with DCA.  We do not hoard success to a small nucleus of insiders. We relish in the growth of our teammates that stay with us and make us better.

A: Of course. Though our company is registered and based in the US (Florida), we can work with any other jurisdiction or country. IN fact, we have performed work on five (5) continents and under all sorts of conditions. Footnote: though the main company still needs to be a US registered one due to the nature of our US Government work…

A: We are pretty typical of benefits for a small business (NAICS under $20.5 million in annual revenue).  The growth of our company relies on a quality workforce.  We recognize to acquire and retain a quality workforce we must consistently strive to enhance our benefits as our cash flow permits. New, improved, and expanded benefits are being evaluated all the time for our teammates benefit.

A:  We used to have much more of a presence on the internet, but we found our specialized customers frowned upon it for security concerns.  Frankly speaking, we also take our employees and management security seriously.  The internet allows for not only good stewardship, but in the national security business, it also allows our adversaries to source a lot of information unnecessarily.  We made a management decision in 2017 to remove ourselves from predominant sites such as Facebook, Instagram, and Linkedin.

We still do have a Twitter account to communicate with the outside world, which is easier to control from a security perspective.
