The DVIDS program is somewhat insulated from Encompass as a whole, but my experience with DVIDS has been top notch. Great coworkers, challenging projects, excellent work life balance.

Same thing, different day unless under pressure for recovery.
Master Control Operator (Current Employee) –  Burbank, CAMay 18, 2016
Same thing, different day. Managers and Supervisor in the Burbank locations are great. Might get a weekend with a Saturday OR Sunday off. Crazy shift schedule. But it is a great work experience.
Pros
Managers and Supervisor are very supportive, easy work flow once understood, friendly environment.
Cons
Work crazy shifts, Saturday OR Sunday as weekend due to seniority.

Technology based workplace always at cutting edge
MEDIA PROFESSIONAL (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAApril 26, 2015
The workplace is very diverse and has many different shifts. My normal working hours are great and I always learn new things because the company is always upgrading do to demands from clients. My co-workers are playing on the same team which is nice as there isn't a stab you in the back environment some places may have. The hardest part of my job is having to worry about contracts and evolving demands of clients. My job does come with a high sense of satisfaction as it pertains to accomplishing many different tasks that always change.
Pros
In house kitchen, understanding management, healthcare
Cons
Clients tend to run the show and often this may get out of hand

Decent working place
Master Control Operator (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 10, 2015
Most MCR operator are expected to work in the adult channel room, which understandably not for everyone.
The co-workers are awesome, so they can keep you off from being too burned out by the adult channels.
Pros
Work shift is pretty fair to most people
Cons
Healthcare

Management needs some serious improvement with employee relations.
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJuly 23, 2014
Not an easy company to work for at least in some departments within the company. Management seems only truly concerned with cost effectiveness on a small scale and not taking a look at long costs. employee/manager relations are horrible and employee time off is not taken seriously which makes for some very unhappy employees and their families.
Pros
decent salary
Cons
management, time off, overtime compensation, work scheduling, communications

Pay needs to increase.
