    Casual Environment

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    It was not a bad place to work at. I did some interesting mobile development work. The coworkers are generally friendly and the weather isn't bad.

    Cons

    Not much of a fan of the city of Pittsburgh. Although the area is more about who you know as opposed the actual attractions there.

    Great company, great field to work in. Executive team needs a wake up call.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at DynaVox is the customers. Great to feel good about delivering the products into the customers that need it.

    The people actually doing the work at DynaVox are what make the place tolerable.

    Cons

    The senior executives are clearly living in their own world. They are rarely in the office and when they are they are behind closed doors with each other.

    Your safety in the organization is only safe if you stay on the good side of the top executives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it into the office or the field with sales reps once in a while. Learn what it takes to do the different jobs and stop changing around the organization so much.

    Take a look outside of the existing product offerings and get competitive. Why buy an expensive device if an iPad and some software can meet my needs?

    Pros

    Great products that can really serve the non-verbal population with a means of communication. You can really make a difference in someone"s life.

    Cons

    Poor management at the top made poor decisions. Tripled sales force in less than 2 years and revenue plummeted. Took company public and stock went from $18 to around 10 cents in less than3 years (DVOX). Ran off most dedicated, experienced employees. Treated all with mis-trust

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to serving the client and respecting the good workers and the numbers witll begin to take care of themselves. You ways of high control and greed have not worked.

    Pros

    Great product that is really needed. Your customers truly appreciate your time and effort.

    Cons

    The management of the company has no idea what makes DynaVox better. They act like it is the software but it used to be the level of support we provided. Now that most of the experienced reps have left there is no reason for a customer to choose DynaVox.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better and take an honest look at your marketplace when you set commissions and quotas.
