Pros and Cons
Account Director (Former Employee) –  National Harbor, MDFebruary 17, 2014
In the public affairs space, work/life balance is always difficult to maintain but DDC Advocacy makes it unnecessarily so. The work expectations between campaign staff, account staff, and technology are so pronounced that morale suffers. CYA culture leads to inefficiency and loss of talent.

Management is a mixed bag. Some managers and executives are excellent.
Pros
free soda
Cons
national harbor location and lack of work/life balance.

Great people but changing company
Current Employee (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCFebruary 5, 2014
I have enjoyed working at DDC. There is a great job culture and comradery among employees. Many of the employees are mid twenties to mid thirties.

I do not think that all of upper management has their fingers to the pulse of the culture and the employees. Information is slow to disseminate and there are a lot of changes going on currently.

Entrepreneurial company with great people.
N/A (Former Employee) –  DC areaDecember 14, 2012
DDC Advocacy's products and services are leaders in the marketplace. There are always interesting projects and campaigns going on. The culture makes for a positive environment. However, the National Harbor location isn't exactly a plus. It isn't located near any convenient Metro stations or other public transportation options, and it isn't in the most appealing place in PG County. Most employees would prefer something similar to the DC location or at least an urbanized suburb like Arlington. Turnover with the business development team is also higher relative to other areas of the company - this is the only department I would advise against working in.
Pros
positive culture, excellent benefits and compensation, interesting work.
Cons
national harbor, md headquarters.

The company has a work-hard, play-hard type of attitude. Had we not relocated, I would have not left the company.

A firm without a clear identity or direction
Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  National Harbor, MDFebruary 27, 2012
There isn't a clear focus within middle and C-level management. They go after any business comes their way, even if its not in their wheel-house. Hard to determine what their core competencies are. Management has no connection whatsoever to its employees, their names, who they are, how hard they work, what they want, etc.
Pros
competitive pay and benefits
Cons
inept management, lack of focus/identity, depressing culture
