    "History of cleaning house. Low employee morale and executive bottleneck impedes company progress."

    I have been working at Divers Alert Network full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Well recognized and respected among scuba divers.
    - If DAN has helped you, then you're an evangelist for life. These folks are a true value of the DAN brand.
    - The Medical Department part of the company really helps make the sport of diving more safe.
    - DAN helps injured divers in need and it feels good to be a part of that.

    Cons

    -A shift was made to focus more on the business and making money and less on connecting with scuba industry
    -They RIFFed most of the employees with strong ties to the scuba industry and no longer have anyone to champion the voice of their customers
    - Many employees live in fear of getting laid off
    - If you don't like the CEO, don't worry, the BOD will fire them
    - The progress of the company only moves as fast as the bottleneck at the top
    - Top executives micro manage every department

    Advice to Management

    - The industry has a strong "one of us" culture. If you're not a diver then you just don't understand.
    - DAN doesn't recognize this and is thus moving in the direction of being an outsider.
    - Move away from keeping the meek employees who surcumb to management demands. Hire good employees and let them shine.
