I have been working at Dice full-time (More than 3 years)
Working for Dice has really opened my eyes to how much someone can actually enjoy their job. I have worked across a variety of industries with a variety of companies and this is the first company I have seen invest so much into the growth and development of their employees. Here are a few great things about this place:
1. The People! I love the team I work with, and I get along well with those on other teams too. There are occasional hang ups between Sales & Support teams, but that is and will always be an age old struggle of service over profits. Any time there has been a perceived issue that can not be addressed by specific individuals we have a management team that is willing to step in and find a resolution. Said management team also is invested in the success of their employees, they listen and are genuinely involved in your personal and professional growth.
2. Benefits. We have a great PTO system, Health insurance, 401k match, etc. The kind of flexibility offered for parents, those dealing with health or family emergencies, in unparalleled to anything I have experienced or heard of elsewhere.
3. Opportunities for growth. If you want to make this place a career, and work your way up the ladder you have every opportunity. Even if you are happy in your current role, you have the option to take on different projects and become more involved through leadership mentoring, product testing, clubs, groups etc.
4. Casual work environment. I have held positions where a suit & tie or dress & heels is expected, and if you don't comply you are automatically an outcast. Dice embraces individuality and your allowed to express yourself (within reason!) with your personal style. You can absolutely dress up if that's what you like, or if you show up in jeans and a t-shirt no one will look twice either. It's about the quality of your work, not the quality of your closet and I love that.
Dice - or rather the parent company, DHI has been going through a lot of changes including divesting some branches and changing the management organization to focus on a tech-first initiative with more streamlined departments. As someone with a business background this makes sense, it's what needs to be done to let these brands & departments thrive. Unfortunately, some employees seem to think of this in a very negative "doomsday" manner, which really isn't the case and sheds negative light on the company, unduly so.
Instead of thinking about it in a negative way, they should consider that these brands are finally being let go in order to grow in their respective fields (oil, energy, health) and stop being held back by the needs of other branches they don't have something in common with. Dice is niche - it will stay niche in order to thrive at being the best.
In terms of management organization, we do have a lot of managers, but they each have important roles. The streamlining process has been taken on in order to help improve direct communication between low-mid- and top levels of management. While we are seeing some people leave, the company has given them an option to stay and re-define their prior roles. It is by choice that they are moving elsewhere.
So yes, there are some negative employees in the office, and yes, there are a lot of changes occurring within the company but guess what? That's business people! Get over it or move on to something else.
Advice to Management
Continue to touch base with employees and listen as well as address the concerns you hear about. You have been doing a great job leading us through this transition, but continue to hold people (at base level as well as management level) accountable for their behavior and initiatives assigned to them.
I applied online. I interviewed at Dice.
