    Pros

    Global footprint and still some very smart people left.

    Cons

    Dimension Data (North America) is led by a group of "good old boys" who refuse to acknoweldge the feedback from the people that interface with customers (engineers, consultants, and account management) they have led what was once a highly respected systems integrator to its current schizophrenic state, they simply cannot decide what they want to do and seem oblivious to the near constant attrition of their best and brightest. Their credibility with their primary partner is nonexistant in most markets outside of the Northeast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior US management is in need of a wholesale replacement.

    Pros

    Global reach, Fortune Client base, emerging technilogy, rapid pace - exposure to new workloads. Dimension Data has a strong reputation for Networking and VOIP deployments both nationally and globally.

    Cons

    Excessive workloads and hours for delivery teams. Disconnected mid- executive management teams. Unfortunately, the company continues to change repidly which has proven disruptive to company morale and teaming amongst sales/delivery/support teams. There is a lack of trust and in essence a tug of war primarily between Presales/Sales and delivery/support. Management lacks structure and the chain of command/process lacks formality and or is faintly existant. Te end result is a significant amount of change and poor coordination/execution on that change. Corporate culture and formal mission statements etc.. have been in existance for just over 1 year. Hard to imagine given the size of the company... Each country operates independent of the other. This results in a difficult negotiation and teaming in global environments as each "theatre" is independent of the other with no central authority/governance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Specific to the America's region...The celebrity factor and "groupie" culture is not representative of the norms of a global firm. Work towards accepting challenges at all levels and away from the "popularity" contest. Middle-Executive(Non Senior) management is not cohesive expecially when operating in a matrix environment/need.
