    I have been working at DataDirect Networks full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Sales 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 ManagementAdvice

    Seek new management with growth potential. Develop a strategy and execute a plan. communicate more effectively. Focus on consistency!

    I have been working at DataDirect Networks full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Intelligent and dedicated engineering force

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    Clean 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.

    Disapproves of CEO
