    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN

    Pros

    There are plenty of opportunities to become a core member on new design projects.
    The engineering resource pool is highly talented and a great learning resource.

    Cons

    You must be OK with a highly flexible schedule
    You must be willing to wear a variety of hats: engineer, tester, salesman

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All in all, keep up the good work; favoritism isn't shown in assignment of tasks and talent is fairly recognized and rewarded.

    Pros

    Company is very supportive of teamwork, of collaboration, while still recognizing unique skills and passions and giving people a chance to excel individually.

    Cons

    Strong corporate culture. There is a Digi way of doing things. It is sometimes necessary to find a sponsor to clear an obvious roadblock

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure everyone in a decisionmaking capacity has a time listening to customers goal. Implement more formal systems for information sharing across divisions not just up and down

    Well run company in an odd industry

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Minneapolis, MN
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN

    Pros

    Debt free financially well run second tier company. Works at finding niches it can dominate rather than taking on larger companies with greater resources.

    Cons

    Product line too broad for most salespeople to comprehend. As a result salespeople go where they can easily make their quota or in the latest hot technology they're focused on by their management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More direct account interaction by Digi salespeople outside of North America to uncover strategic opportunities that distribution channels aren't likely to find.

    A good place to work.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer  in  Long Beach, CA
    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Long Beach, CA

    Pros

    Digi is a technically challenging casual work environment. You regularly get to work with new technologies and develop new products. All this without a micro manager looming over your shoulder. It is really the best of both worlds. Education and training is promoted from corporate. The benefits here are better than normal.

    Cons

    Like all fast paced engineering groups, project planning could be better. More often than not, the project starts with no specifications and documentation is put off until the very last minute. As always, this bites you in the butt. More time upfront would alleviate many of the problems during development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan your projects better. Get specs up front and avoid feature creep. Documentation actually HELPs and is not entirely evil.

    Pros

    Work environment and the quality of work are pretty good. Competent engineers are there from whom we can learn a lot. Learning curve is good.

    Cons

    Some times it happens that the management is a little ruthless during the project deadlines. And your contribution might get overlooked

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I personally do not have any advice to give for the management. I am okay with the way it is.
