    I have been working at Digi International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, good cafe, good market to be in, good work / life balance, good co-workers (but the good ones are leaving) It is not a micro managed organization. Cash heavy and liquid.

    Cons

    Digi switched gears from a good hardware company to a software centric organization with a "me too" product offering. I'm not saying it was a comletely bad idea, but Digi bet the farm on it and execution has failed. Leadership of the "new co" will not admit that it is not working. Numbers are falling, talented people have places to go. The thought is to hire more people or replace talent with people who dont have experience in the core product/services. Because of this, Digi is not innovating and is falling further and further behind in a groth market.

    I dont expect Digi to continue on this path and the board will make more changes. I'm not sure how much longer Digi, as we know it, will be around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If at first you dont succeed, try, try again... unless of course you are trying the same things and expect different results.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. The working environment is flexible. Most of the coworkers are friendly. Digi Cafe is a amazing place to rest and chat.

    Cons

    It is true that the vision of the company is forever moving. The pay is low compared with the workload. More and more competitors are rushing into this industry.

    Pros

    Compensation is great. PTO is great.

    Cons

    You get thrown into things without any training. Sink or Swim. Coworkers can be gossip mongers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider recruiting better and also proper train your new hires.

    Pros

    Interesting products, some very good engineers, used to have a fantastic corporate culture and the dregs of it are still around - holiday dinners, a ham at christmas, separate vacation and sick time.

    Cons

    There seems to be more of a focus on appearances lately rather than work quality and output. The execs have really tightened the reins in the past couple of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have more in-company mobility and cross-training.

    Pros

    Nice group of people in the HQ office, don't know much about other offices.
    Solid benefits package.
    Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Sr. Management seems to be totally disengaged from the organization.
    Company is trying to get into new markets but they are not seeing any success/revenues.
    Frustration is growing at management level and that is starting to work it's way down through the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus, focus, focus.

    Pros

    Growing technology leaves the potential of the company high, great coworkers, and they treat you well around the holidays, plus the cafeteria is amazing

    Cons

    No potential to move up, not opportunity to make a lot of money, micromanagement, the vision of the company is forever moving, those who have been there for a long time have a huge seniority and nosey complex.

    Pros

    - Great work/life balance
    - Get to work with amazing people
    - Interesting problems
    - Freedom on what to use when designing a new application

    - Unrealistic expectations
    - Poor interteam communication
