I have been working at DataDirect Networks full-time

Pros

Innovative, running at a hundred miles a minute, at the forefront of object technology and big data. Amazing customers doing things one can't even imagine using DDN's products. This company is on to something really big

Cons

Not a 9 to 5 place! If you are used to well defined structure and organization and lots of infrastructure to surround you, you will probably have a hard time

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Nurture your people. YOu are starting to do it, keep at it. You have some of the smartest people in the industry. Help them grow, empower them and you'll be amazed at the results

    Pros

    Great Technology, great people and management in the field.
    Great can do, execution environment.
    Amazing customers and references.

    Cons

    Founders, company values. All foot soldiers and generals and expendable.
    It's all about the $ today. Never Strategic. No Partner system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrity, honesty should be the two factors you live by

    Nightmare. I don't believe in the leadership, they look full of it to me.

    I worked at DataDirect Networks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    some great people around there but a few school yard bullies too from the old school, nasty and self obsessed.

    Cons

    all about the private founders, and making them money. I think the Techies seen as low class. Sales seen as SFDC robots. Never hear about people investment or charity or community stuff. Ask people that left about product quality, support, service, functionality, working life...see what they say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    sell and be done or invest for the longer term. You nickel and dime to death and it cant work. also get some IP, stop mostly just assembling other company components.
