    I have been working at Dimension Data full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have been here for little over a year and this is an awesome place to work! The California office is outgoing, fun!, and brings life to the work force on a daily basis. They atmosphere makes you work hard everyday! The people, no matter what department you are in, are all friendly and super smart. There is so much potential and growth at this company.

    Cons

    Some delays in getting stuff done in other departments, but nothing a little nudge won't hurt

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good job, catered lunches more! :)

    Pros

    There are loads of opportunity to advance if you put the effort in. There is a focus on employee retention, and work life balance. While sometimes after hours work is necessary working in a 24x7 global environment it is recognized. There are many parts to the company, and as such there are many different directions to take your career. You just need to understand what is out there, keep an eye on the tools provided and keep in contact with your manager. They will help you evaluate your current skills with the direction you want to take your career and provide opportunities, when available, to bring your skill set up to where it needs to be for that future role.

    Cons

    As mentioned above, sometimes calls after the standard 9-5 day are required when working in a global company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your staff and keep doing what you are doing.

    A great place to work and grow, however, nothing will be handed to you. If you put in the work, you reap the rewards!

    Pros

    Great people, a company that understands the definition of the term "work / life balance," challenging projects, a company that wants to be on the bleeding edge of technology offerings, global footprint, opportunities to grow if you want them. For those who show initiative, this company rewards them handsomely. If you're just a bump on a log waiting for something to be handed to you, it's not going to happen for you.

    Cons

    Very little in terms of cons. This company looks out for its employees and does what it can do hang to talent.

    Pros

    Good work life flexibility, great career prospects for the properly motivated. Always looking forward and adapting to the next transformation in the ever changing ICT industry.

    Cons

    Matrix management approach which is generally good but there are some issues with division of labour, reporting lines and responsibilities between National Vs State, and Professional Services vs Managed Services.

    I worked at Dimension Data as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I am honored to have been a part of the Dimension Data family as an intern. It was incredible to interact with such friendly knowledgable people. I was provided skills that will last me a lifetime. The company took me under their wing and donated their time to my learning. I had an extraordinary mentor who I can now look to for future guidance.

    Cons

    I wish I had more time with the company to donate more to my commentary. From my experience, I did not endure any cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From conversations I have heard around the office, employees find it hard to move up in the company. Dimension Data is a company with incredible potential to blossom!

    Pros

    Have a balanced work life balance. Company knows that it has to look after it's primary resource - it's people. It doesn't always get it right, but if you are proactive, you should enjoy your self here. They want you to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Lack of change management when restructuring. Sometimes too sales focused, but they are always client focused.
