    Very far from what the company says it does.

    I worked at DynaVox full-time

    Pros

    Very knowledgeable colleagues who really care about the people who use DynaVox products. Excellent opportunities for collaboration with other departments.

    Cons

    Not a lot of communication from management--even less senior managers. Employees have no direction--or the direction changes every few days and what you had been working on never sees the light of day. When a decision is made by management it is often inexpiable. Office environment is stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your employees. Treat your employees better if you want to retain some REALLY good people.

    Great company, great field to work in. Executive team needs a wake up call.

    I worked at DynaVox

    Pros

    The best reason to work at DynaVox is the customers. Great to feel good about delivering the products into the customers that need it.

    The people actually doing the work at DynaVox are what make the place tolerable.

    Cons

    The senior executives are clearly living in their own world. They are rarely in the office and when they are they are behind closed doors with each other.

    Your safety in the organization is only safe if you stay on the good side of the top executives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it into the office or the field with sales reps once in a while. Learn what it takes to do the different jobs and stop changing around the organization so much.

    Take a look outside of the existing product offerings and get competitive. Why buy an expensive device if an iPad and some software can meet my needs?
