Pros

The people are great to work with, and as long as you are responsible they keep you busy with meaningful work. There is no shortage of learning opportunities and you will gain much in the way of transferable skills.

Cons

There are a lot instances where the workers are stuck supporting garbage software or products because someone in the past accepted shoddy work from a supplier. The amount of work expected our of the engineering department is borderline unrealistic as a result of higher ups pandering to clients and allowing them unrealistic demands.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Push customers to upgrade to Windows 7 and drop XP support. It will significantly lighten the workload and allow for time to do things right. A lot of the time, the fixes applied to issues that arise are "band-aids" and have adverse effects because fixing it right takes too much time.

    Pros

    Competitive salaries, some chance for growth and promotion. Management says they have a plan to turn everything around, so maybe things will get better.

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs and restructuring make for an unstable, worrisome work environment. Lots of talent has left - some were pushed out and others ran for the hills.

    Pros

    Great people, highly committed associates. Company has started a comprehensive transformation program that shows traction and will make Diebold a better place to work. New management is tackling issues that were ignored for a long time. Culture is changing what is very positive (new dress code in Ohio: Jeans!), communication significantly improved.

    Compensation: adequate pay; just recently introduced Employee Stock Purchase Program, what is very attractive

    Cons

    Company has had difficult years and is now in the midst of a multi-year transformation, therefore be prepared for lots of change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the current path and don't stop listening to the associates
