Daktronics started as a small company operating out of a garage in 1968. 50 years later, we're the world leader in the display industry.
Daktronics was founded in 1968 by Drs. Aelred Kurtenbach and Duane Sander, professors of electrical engineering at South Dakota State University in Brookings, SD. The company began with the design and manufacture of electronic voting systems for state legislatures.
In 1971, Daktronics developed the patented Matside® wrestling scoreboard, the first product in the company's growing and evolving line.
In 1994, Daktronics, Inc. became a publicly traded company, offering shares under the symbol DAKT on the NASDAQ National Market system.
I have been working at Daktronics full-time (More than 5 years)
Flexibility, the people, and stability of the company. The people at Daktronics display our core values - honest, humble and helpful. Thus, the work environment is positive on a daily basis. Plus, the product Daktronics manufactures is cool and exciting!

Advice to Management
Continue seeking input from the employees through various surveys.
I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Daktronics (Brookings, SD) in April 2010.
Took a long time to get initial response. Phone interview, then corporate day long interviews. Took a long time to get the offer callas well.
No negotiation was offered to me. This is not the case today though. With experience you may be able to lobby for more pay and/or more time off.
