    I have been working at Dyntek full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are committed to excellence and working as part of a team, DynTek is fantastic. The company has many opportunities for growth, and continues to deliver impressive financial results year after year. New team members are welcomed in with open arms and are given a chance to prove themselves. Once you are successful in your role, you are part of the family.

    Cons

    Like any company, there are challenges to overcome. The industry is changing rapidly, and some people want to hang on to the glory of the past. Also the service delivery team went through significant changes and is just now getting its legs back under it after a year on its back.

    Advice to Management

    Now that you have gotten rid of many of the "old guard" DynTek middle managers that didn't actually sell or deliver anything on their own, and have put some great people with actual field experience in these roles, don't stray from the course. The company is absolutely on the right track, and the numbers prove it. Don't let disgruntled former employees, who didn't want to change, and who just want to spew venom on Glassdoor change your direction. A lot of the chronic complainers and people that dragged down everyone's morale and good spirits have now left, and that's a good thing. It's not a surprise that they continue to complain through their bad reviews or take pot shots on their way out the door. Every day here is getting better, and the recent changes made by the company are great. The future is brighter than ever for this company. Nice work Ron & Team!

    I have been working at Dyntek full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    DynTek is a company that is fantastic for A players. They recognize and reward the folks that work hard and do what it takes to get the job done.

    Cons

    The only challenges are for the employees that require to be managed. The employees that worry about how the system works and what everyone's role and how theoretically something may not work out in their favor is a time suck. Just work hard and it will all work out.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone likes hearing from the upper management. The CEO is very transparent and open to anyone calling him and discussing anything. The company is growing, keep it moving in the same direction!

    Pros

    Good steppingstone to a real organization.

    Cons

    leadership from the top down. Lack of direction with an organization. Profit-sharing only with BP. Estes billable time is only as valuable as what they put in. Training efforts are deducted from our numbers so you need to makeup that lost time to billable.

    Advice to Management

    Hire seasoned professionals, not those within the company because they worked many years or because they remind you of your unborn son.

    I have been working at Dyntek full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people including highly technical consultants and Sales executives. DynTek is a well rounded Systems Integration firm that specializes in a diverse set of products and solutions. Not much we don't sell.

    Cons

    Poor executive decisions have been made which caused too many A players to leave the company. In addition, there has been very little effort to backfill those key roles and if they did, they effectively repurposed top engineers out of the field and into presales. Delivery of projects have been difficult forcing highly sought after consultants to be overworked and backlogged for months. Back office personnel are not all customer focused and abide too strictly by the rulebook.

    Advice to Management

    When making important decisions, solicit input from key individuals who have been committed to the company and who it affects. Keep your word and follow through to completion on initiatives.

    I worked at Dyntek full-time

    Pros

    Peer relationships seem to prosper in this work environment and the company has a flexible feel to it. Some of the back-end people are nice and know what they are doing. Salary seemed on par with smaller companies and the bonus structure worked when everyone was busy.

    Cons

    Some of the back-end people are less in-tune with their job responsibilities; management is in a state of flux, making changes over the past year as they try to straighten out the flaws. Pay is NOT competitive and the career path structure is weak at best. Technical turnover rate is above average. Certainly not an “Amazing place to grow” nor is it “The best company for technical advancement”, at least not this year.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees, keep them in the loop. If you want people to stick around, recognize their successes, not just their failures. Try to keep making changes that are best for the company as an entity, not best for individual people.

    I worked at Dyntek full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people that work there are nice.

    Cons

    Dyntek lays off people within three to six months of hiring them. They are a consultant and base employee performance on utilization. The problem is, they not only use utilization as a metric for engineers, they also do it for several levels in the management chain. Management roles are not usually billable.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the requirement for all management roles to be billable.

    I worked at Dyntek full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really, really, smart people, a very dynamic and flexible workplace, management that is accessible, team members that work hard. What I especially liked here is the focus on the customer. At the end of the day, these guys were all about getting things done for customers, and making sure they were happy, even when it costs the company money (although they often have to work around company red tape to get it done). At what other $150M plus company can anyone pick up the phone and call the CEO and feel comfortable doing it? At DynTek, it happens all the time and is encouraged.

    Cons

    Some of the processes, especially in their financial area seem rigid and overly complex. When it comes to employees, it seems that the managers really want to do the right things, but sometimes the financial people in the company make it difficult. It's no secret that almost the entire technical and sales staff things that their accounting and finance departments are very annoying and are obstacles to just about any smart decision.

    Advice to Management

    Remove some of the people who make life difficult for employees to do their jobs and satisfy customers.

    Pros

    Good experience when not being over booked

    Cons

    Everything. Management was terrible at managing. Sales staff over promise and improperly manage client expectations. Dog eat dog technical environment. Constantly thrown into disadvantaged situations without the necessary resources or backing from management. Oh and CEO blatantly hit on my wife as I was standing there at a Christmas party. Apparently he was drunk...

    Advice to Management

    Quit and let someone else take the reigns. You are the problem. Support your STAFF always. Every time. Without them there is no company.

    DynTek provides lots of space to operate. You need to be self-motivated, hard working and experienced to succeed.

    Pros

    If you like a challenge and are at the top of your profession, you like taking things on yourself and performing all aspects of delivery or sales, you will like DynTek. It isn't for those needing a lot of micro-management. The services teams are top notch.

    Cons

    Company's back office presents a real challenge to customers and employees alike. Management team needs work at the executive level.

    Advice to Management

    Middle level management does a great job of working with their sales and services teams. Executive management lacks engagement in the day to day business and seems unaware of what most of the staff does all day.
