I worked at DynaVox full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great products that can really serve the non-verbal population with a means of communication. You can really make a difference in someone"s life.

Cons

Poor management at the top made poor decisions. Tripled sales force in less than 2 years and revenue plummeted. Took company public and stock went from $18 to around 10 cents in less than3 years (DVOX). Ran off most dedicated, experienced employees. Treated all with mis-trust

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to serving the client and respecting the good workers and the numbers witll begin to take care of themselves. You ways of high control and greed have not worked.

    I worked at DynaVox

    Pros

    The products truly help people. Some staff nice.

    Cons

    All decisions are made by the CEO. Managers are not provided with the proper information to complete their jobs. They CANNOT seem to successfully develop new products. What should be fast releases take years and are filled with bugs. And the culture (starting from the top) is horrendous. There is a climate of fear and mistrust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Board of Directors: step up to your responsibilities. The company has lost almost all value yet you seem to do NOTHING. You and the CEO have destroyed a wonderful company. (Just check the stock price!)

    I worked at DynaVox full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great product that is really needed. Your customers truly appreciate your time and effort.

    Cons

    The management of the company has no idea what makes DynaVox better. They act like it is the software but it used to be the level of support we provided. Now that most of the experienced reps have left there is no reason for a customer to choose DynaVox.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better and take an honest look at your marketplace when you set commissions and quotas.
