I worked at Datalink full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good co-workers among the rank and file.

Cons

Management is clueless. Hours are 8:30-5:00 for some positions, but work exceeds those hours and you need management approval for "OT" that goes beyond 5pm. Management rarely approves OT since they receive bonuses if they stay within budget. Unless someone wants to be absolutely buried in work for pay that doesn't justify that work, they have to work beyond 5pm.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get over yourselves. You're overcompensated for being underqualified. A big ego and a bigger pay check off of the backs who TRULY do the work that get you your numbers doesn't compensate for a lack of intelligence or lack of spine.

    Pros

    Great team of engineers with great depth and industry experience. Interesting technology. Peer support is very good and collaborative. Good work environment.

    Cons

    Not enough focus - too many product/solution offerings. Limited upper management visibility. New sales rep turn over is challenging. Definite separation between upper management and employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consult a broader employee base when you are consider new product/solution offerings. Focus on mastering defined technology areas rather than providing mediocre support across too broad a base of products.
