I worked at Datalink full-time

Pros

Company continues to grow and do good business with large customers.

Cons

Product "focus" has gotten very large, but technical teams haven't grown to accommodate. Too little focus on individuals related to growth and support.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create a line of communication to field level employees and listen to them. Make sure the span of control isn't so large that field employees feel left out on their own.
