  1. Great place for A Players. The work is challenging and the competition is high.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, great team of extremely talented technical and sales professionals. Pay is very competitive and the camaraderie is high. The company understands the fact that people need a work/life balance, and the solid contributors get rewarded with significant flexibility to strike a nice balance.

    A very sincere and thoughtful CEO who is willing to listen and talk to every person in the company regardless of their position.

    Cons

    The back office systems, operations and policies are not the best. Most of them are very nice people, but the leadership is weak. Also they regularly hide behind "rules and regulations" (some that are not even applicable) that they selectively use to justify annoying processes that they want to implement. The operations teams don't seem to understand enough about running a technology or services businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade internal systems to bring them into the current decade. Get more of the right people in the right jobs. Many recent changes at the company have been good, some negative and difficult people that were in technical management have left, opening the door for new ideas, which were desperately needed.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    . Pay is fair and support is excellent if you know someone in support. Talking with customers they love the sales group. They are OK with Support. They train well and give you a lot of latitude to solve customers’ issues.

    Cons

    Not all employees are treated the same or fair. Some get to work at home b/c they date upper management and no one can say anything. Some other people always go on company sponsored sales trips that not in sales and the rest have to hear about how much fun was had when they do return to work in office from time to time. It’s not fair the same person go year after year b/c who they date.

    Advice to Management

    All employee should be treated same. If some are made to report to office ALL should. Office relationships should be discreet. Upper level management should be setting the standard not taking advantage.

    Pros

    There are genuinely some of the most talented people you could hope to work with and learn from during your career here. Access to current technology in different project environments is a great benefit. Support to pursue certifications is a big plus.

    Cons

    They don't solicit enough input from the people working daily in the trenches when making organizational changes.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should do a better job of communicating the direction of the company more often. Your most valuable asset is your people - use them in more ways. Involve them in developing the strategies for the company.
