    I worked at D-Link full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    co-workers are great people. hard working

    Cons

    LOW pay, you will make more driving for Uber, massive lay-offs due to poor management, need to be more transparent with employees. products are defective BAD firmware's always need to be upgraded. if H/W ver is in the A's stay away

    Advice to Management

    transparent with employees, work together instead of fighting for the bone of power. don't be scared of telling HQ the product is bad. if not one day you will be in same boat.

    Pros

    The people are the best thing about D-Link. There are a lot of hard working, smart colleagues to learn from, and everyone helps everyone out.

    Cons

    The company's culture leaves a lot to be desired. Unfortunately, I don't think it's changed all that much.

    Pros

    Some good people but there is fear culture with ppl always worried theyll be laid off next. common lunch conversation and chit chat will be about all the people that used to work there but are no longer there. I thought the work life balance was ok.

    Cons

    ok to work here for a few months /no more than 6 months). this is common knowledge-revolving door Health benefits and pay below average for same job elsewhere

    I worked at D-Link full-time

    Pros

    Design team is talented and creative inviduals that makes marketing even viable for the company. Everyone seems to get along with each other, and managment is lenient if you get your work done.

    Cons

    Being sarcastic and whitty gets you in with managment and meetings. If you're lucky you get to be in the clique. if not you'll feel left out, judged and get a feeling people are talking behind your back.

    Advice to Management

    There's time to be friends and time to be a manager. Show appreciation.

    I worked at D-Link (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people in all departments. They were very good at hiring people that fit in personality-wise with those who were already there.
    One of the best places I have worked at in my professional career.
    I enjoyed my time there (almost 12 years) very much.

    Cons

    I am not convinced that they understand the American market very well. At one time they were the sales leader in their categories and as my time there moved forward they seemed to lose ground at an accelerated pace.

    Advice to Management

    If they want to continue in the US market they will need to heavily invest in the marketing programs of their partners.
