Daktronics treats people like machines and they enjoy having a lot of turnover out on the floor.

Pros

Daktronics has very good benefits and there are a lot of interesting people that work there, but it is still a depressing place because these nice people are all paid low and not given enough recognition, so the morale is always low out on the floor.

Cons

Upper management needs to appreciate the entry level managers (crew leaders) more and compensate them better. They are the ones driving morale and efficiency on the production line. They are held to a high standard when it comes to policies, but they are only paid .75 more than an assembly worker.

    Company is ran by engineers with no business sense.

    Pros

    A pay check but you will probably need a second job to pay the bills.

    Cons

    Low pay, no advancement, and employees are not people they are just a number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scrap your HR department and hire some managers that are not engineers.

    Wage increases for good grades on list of accepted courses.

    Poor training programs in place. Learn on the job and not necessarily from a good teacher...
