    Lost its focus, Challenging Outlook

    Sales (Current Employee)
    Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsVery good technology. They are strong systems integrators for HPC applications and parallel file systems.

    ConsSales have stalled. The HPC market, which is so dependent on government funding is declining. The companies ability to penetrate more profitable, commercial markets has been unsuccessful.

    Rampant turnover leads to poor morale and declining customer satisfaction.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSeek new management with growth potential. Develop a strategy and execute a plan. communicate more effectively. Focus on consistency!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    DDN has derailed and is crashing soon.

    Account Executive (Current Employee)
    Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsIntelligent and dedicated engineering force

    ConsManagement lacks coherent focus and message to DDN sales and engineering teams
    C-level suite pontificates about product releases and alliances that do not materialize and leave company working backwards
    Internal communication completely broken and hostile

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean out the C-level suite and start building from scratch. HPC storage is only a market sliver and you do not have products to compete in the enterprise.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
