Pros

Involvement – sharing business vision, goals & results. Every week, the entire company participates on a call where every DayNiner has the opportunity to share opinions, and where appropriate, act on them. DayNiners are directly involved in decision-making in areas such as compensation, performance management, and delivery methodology.

Value employees as people – giving the support they need. Onboarding at DayNine is a six month process. Every DayNiner is paid to be educated on the Workday software. They go through a 2-4 week comprehensive “boot camp” training to give them the confidence needed to handle almost any type of client engagement. Every new hire is paired up with a “training buddy.” In addition to directly supporting the training transfer, the training buddy’s job is to listen with respect and full attention to help build self-esteem on the front-end.

Leadership & direction - ensuring expectations are understood. At DayNine, there is a very clear and simple set of expectations to measure everyone’s performance. Three things: keep customers happy, work hard and contribute to building the company. In other words…total transparency is a big deal.

Generous compensation – pay for performance. The DayNine philosophy is to offer a compensation package that will attract and retain top talent. The package includes salary, a quarterly performance-based incentive, a stock option program, a robust health and welfare benefit offering and a career development plan that includes ongoing training and mentoring allowing every DayNiner the opportunity to grow into their dream career.

Cons

Fast and fluent. It's "game on" all the time...no off switch.

If you're looking for structure...you won't find it here.

Rigorous training...like boot camp in the military. Very steep learning curve on the front end.

    Pros

    The People working here are cream of the crop professionals that are fun to work with! It's an awesome culture at DayNine. Fast-Paced, cutting edge work that is exponentially in demand! The leadership is open with people.

    Cons

    Because the company is a little on the younger side, there are some growing pains, and administrative inconsistencies. Sometimes you have to kind of make your own way to get what would be thought of as "readily available info".

    Pros

    Dedicated to internal promotion and development, skills focused, good benefits, young and offers stock options to all, really culture driven and successful because of it.

    Cons

    My one and largest complaint is the combination of focusing on people being in the office together and the main office in California being in Pleasanton. I'm sure Pleasanton is a good location for some, but it's really far away from anything even remotely cool. Two hours from San Francisco, two hours from wine country, an hour from Berkeley, an hour from San Jose. It's just remote! If you are in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, or Dallas, you have it made.
