DDN lost its way

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at DataDirect Networks

Prosthey hired some great talent in 20212, people in Sunnyvale and Chatsworth are fun to work with, great products

Consproduct quality makes the field suffer, work crazy hours
parts often arrive either missing, wrong parts etc, making field even suffer more
executive management don't care about their employees
latest layoff will make morale even lower

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management needs to take a close look in the mirror and see what they can change to themselves. Some of the longtimers are actually the very reason why the company cannot grow

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
