    I worked at DynaVox full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great products that can really serve the non-verbal population with a means of communication. You can really make a difference in someone"s life.

    Cons

    Poor management at the top made poor decisions. Tripled sales force in less than 2 years and revenue plummeted. Took company public and stock went from $18 to around 10 cents in less than3 years (DVOX). Ran off most dedicated, experienced employees. Treated all with mis-trust

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to serving the client and respecting the good workers and the numbers witll begin to take care of themselves. You ways of high control and greed have not worked.

    Pros

    Great product that is really needed. Your customers truly appreciate your time and effort.

    Cons

    The management of the company has no idea what makes DynaVox better. They act like it is the software but it used to be the level of support we provided. Now that most of the experienced reps have left there is no reason for a customer to choose DynaVox.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better and take an honest look at your marketplace when you set commissions and quotas.

    I worked at DynaVox

    Pros

    Place you feel good about working for and proud of what you do for customers. Focus seemed to be shifting more towards increasing profit rather than product quality, as emphasized by all veteran employees there.

    Cons

    Loaded with very big egos, many of them unjustified. A little more professional management needs to pervade here, as many minor routine management tasks are overlooked or just plain skipped, such as performance reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give routine performance assessments and routine professional progress assessments. You have employees who actually want to work there; help them continue feeling that way and help them more directly / tangibly develop. Don't let your huge ego get in the way of that.

    No opinion of CEO
