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

    Pros

    Considered a leader in the HPC and BigData storage space. The exponential market growth should make them well positioned! They have some very smart people in sales, engineering, and support. Most employees do what it take to get the job done and have a BIG HEART!

    Cons

    Turnover is beyond unacceptable. Everyone comes and goes from senior management (COO, President(s), CFO, Legal, Sales Management, and > 70% in sales and systems engineering positions). The average tenure in customer facing positions is well below the industry average. The high turnover and LEAN operating culture results in a very stressful and reactive environment with somewhat unprofessional management behavior. Employees are not valued nor respected in comparison to other technology firms.

    They have tried multiple times to go IPO or be acquired without success. Their impression of the company's valuation does not come close to the market's perception.

    When you combine the internal strife with the rapidly changing market dynamics from OpenStack, software defined storage, and cloud computing companies.... This is no longer a growth company. It is a lifestyle company for the sole benefit of the CEO and president/ founder.

    As log as you understand the pluses (strong technology) and minuses (Turnover, Limited growth) it is an acceptable place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need an outside investor with capital and a vision to take the company to the next level. There is nothing wrong with asking for help!
