DDN has derailed and is crashing soon.

Account Executive (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

ProsIntelligent and dedicated engineering force

ConsManagement lacks coherent focus and message to DDN sales and engineering teams
C-level suite pontificates about product releases and alliances that do not materialize and leave company working backwards
Internal communication completely broken and hostile

Advice to Senior ManagementClean out the C-level suite and start building from scratch. HPC storage is only a market sliver and you do not have products to compete in the enterprise.

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