    I worked at Danya International

    Pros

    The CEO (Jeff Hoffman) is very approachable and likes to make his staff feel like a part of the Danya team. I think junior to mid-level empolyees have a chance to grow with this company. The benefits and salary seem to be a bit higher than industry average.

    Cons

    Some of the senior management could do a better job to engage all project teams under their purview. Our project team felt a bit dissociated from the rest of the group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep building the team-oriented culture through transparency and open dialogue with staff.

    I worked at Danya International full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The particular job I was hired for was interesting. Great team (except the project manager). Owner is a nice person and makes an effort to know all the employees, old and new.

    Cons

    Horrible supervisor. Micromanager, jealous, zero people skills. Company seems to be comfortable where it's at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you have multiple staff from the same team quitting, get a clue and find out why they are quitting. Is it that they found better opportunities elsewhere? Maybe it was a family situation? Or, maybe, it was a terrible project manager who liked to micromanage staff, constantly scheduled team meetings at 8:30am and 4:30 pm that ran for 2 hours (talk about devising a way to have employees be at the office earlier and get them to stay after hours).

    I have been working at Danya International full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility, compensation, non-stressful workplace, family oriented

    Cons

    Some senior managers ( one in particular) lacks effective communication with staff and is very temper-mental which causes workplace to be stressful. Micromanages adult staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know that effective management, flexibility makes employees more willing to increase productivity/ service. Remove non-effective managers in order to retain good loyal employees.

    Pros

    Pay and location are acceptable.

    Cons

    Poor management of staff, product development, and client relationships

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop burning bridges. Former employees become new employees to someone else. This is relevant because your reputation will precede the company in a negative way.

    I worked at Danya International full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked here for over 10 years on a government contract. I enjoyed the opportunity and was treated really well. The HR department is awesome and will do a lot to help the staff. The company is small and tight knit. You are giving opportunities to work with other departments and to learn new and exciting work.

    Cons

    The owner is very engaged with staff and knows you by first name, however he at times seem to be disconnected from the overall company while focusing his attention on other ventures. Very kind person tho...
