    I have been working at Data Device

    Pros

    The interview gave me a great understanding of the organization, and position expectations. The benefits are outstanding (holiday luncheons, two company shutdowns, education assistance, fitness club reimbursement), and really prove to me that DDC cares about it's employees. I have been assigned a peer mentor, such a huge help in transitioning into a new company. I really feel that I am being set up for success.

    Cons

    No cons that I can see so far

    Pros

    Paid time off is good. Processes are all in place. The people I worked with became family. Close to my home.

    Cons

    I worked for a manipulative, unstable woman. A lot of changes were being made towards the end. They didn't provide much for me to grow as a businesswoman.

    I have been working at Data Device full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    9/80 work week in summer, cafeteria on site, nice work/life balance. Used to have bbq's 2x a year but this year we had to give them both up to have a picnic (which I heard was terrible since I refused to go).

    Cons

    Many people are overworked due to downsizing. Pay is terrible...went years without raises. New management (from the past year) does not have the best interest in mind for his employees but is more concerned with how he looks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and take their thoughts into account. Do not micromanage. Go back to the way things were 3 or more years ago and you will find happier employees who are excited to come to work every day.

    I worked at Data Device full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people who I worked with were absolutely the best ..unfortunately most of them left over the years for either better positions, or were the victims of downsizing. There is a cafeteria on site, 2 full shutdowns weeks (first of July, last of December), and some outside trips organized by HR. Not sure if this is a pro but they instill a 9/80 work week in the summer where you work an extra hour a day and have off every Friday. In the end, I felt it was not worth it.

    Cons

    Salary was terrible, overworked (due to downsizing) with no advancement in pay, and management was not interested in anything other than their bonuses and how much money the company can 'pull in' per month. They would let people go and not hire to fill that position, rather give the work to someone else essentially making them do a job they were never hired for. I worked here for 7 years, was recently laid off but the first 4 years were great (mainly because of the boss I HAD...new guy is a jerk).
    As with any job, you are expected to do more than what you were hired for....but to an extent...(not doing 3-4 DIFFERENT jobs all at the same time).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES! Ask them questions....get to know them and what they do. I acquired a new boss and the guy never bothered to find out exactly what I did....and for some reason laid me off because he said he didn't need me (my position was one that he of all people needed seeing as how the man could barely compose an email without help). I'm better off now but if this company was the way it was 3-4 yrs ago I would have given it 4-5 stars.
