Frustrating

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Salt Lake City, UT

I have been working at Datamark (Utah) full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLaid back, casual environment where the employees are friendly.

ConsThere isn't a lot of true talent at Datamark.
There are few advancement opportunities and from what I have seen, promotions aren't based on merit.
Senior management has huge egos and very few skills.
Decisions are made based on emotions rather than goals.

Advice to Senior ManagementDatamark is a lot like the dog in the movie "UP"..."Squirrel!" Try seeing things through once you start them. There is a lot of change at Datamark which at least keeps things interesting, but it is often too hard to tell if your changes are working because you either get bored of them and forget they exist or you come across some new idea that distracts you from your current initiative.

Also, develop a long term plan for where you want your company to go and make your decisions based on that plan.

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