    I have been working at Data Transmission Network full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule
    Decent benefits
    plenty of parking in the parking lot

    Cons

    Product managers driven by ego rather than a desire to innovate
    Backward looking management
    Disjointed management, and communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When selecting individuals to develope and maintain product, it is imperative to find a person that doesn't get immobilized by criticism of the product. Innovate, look at what other companies int he same arena are doing to stay ahead of the curve.

    Great potential, but awful leadership and incompetent middle management

    I worked at Data Transmission Network

    Pros

    The pay is good and the brand is strong.
    Good opportunity for those just starting out or early on in their careers

    Cons

    Very short-sighted mentality, with extreme lack of visionary leadership.
    Ethically compromised leadership and management created an abusive culture where only those who agreed with management were rewarded (even when management was wrong)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your act. Learn how to recognize and foster talent, and avoid the propensity toward cronyism which is so rampant in this company

    Sometimes decisions were made to include people at certain positions for the wrong reason. Focus on getting the right person for the job, don't worry about past associations

    Pros

    Laid back, friendly, and casual work environment. For the most part it is a very fair and pressure free place to work.

    Cons

    Management has problems turning a laid back and casual work environment into dollars. As a result, we usually end up rushing products out the door unfinished for the sole purpose of hitting some manager's project quota. Additionally, due to the financial situation of the company, many of the perks you would find at other companies are missing. For example: bonuses, company parties/outings, encentive programs, team building experiences are all virtually non-existant (unless it comes out of the managers pocket).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in touch with your employees. Not the people directly below you but rather the people at the ground floor. They are the ones who actually know what your customers want. Not your paper pushers that produce nothing but reports based on data collected and then passed through 3 layers of refinement so that it "looks good".
