    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at DDN (Wisconsin) (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are smart and hard working.

    Cons

    They had all the pieces for something great, yet missed the window of opportunity. They just tried to do too much too fast and quality suffered. Both in the products and in management. Disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    People work for people not companies. Humble yourself and show some appreciation and respect. You put the core values on business cards yet it is a joke. Read them. Everyday.

    I have been working at DDN (Wisconsin) full-time

    Pros

    OK benefits, OK retirement program, quality middle management.

    Cons

    Frequent management changes result in vision changes. Currently planning a move to downtown Milwaukee from a northern suburb of Menomonee Falls.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees and their work-life balance requirements. Moving this company will negatively impact nearly all employees. Limit change, limit

    Pros

    Co workers are nice and seem to care. People here seem willing to work as hard as they can.

    Cons

    Low pay, no recognition when doing tough work. Outrageous supervisor who does not know how to talk to employees. Very rude supervisor. Supervisors show favoritism. Communication is horrible and don't expect a nice raise they only give you pennies for a raise.

    Advice to Management

    You need to pay more attention to you employees. Depts are paid less then others and do way more work. Wake up!!!!

    Pros

    Co-workers, for the most part a great and people really do care about doing the best job they can do.

    Cons

    Poor investment in technology, no clear career development path, favoritism in male promotions over the past 6 years, lack of senior management espousing company values. No one cares what employees at any level have to say...ever, so we all just keep quiet and march to a failing tune. People who clearly should have been let go are still here dragging down the overall team and it is demoralizing. Go to HR and you're next in line to get fired; we've seen that happen to two employees. Why do great work if mediocrity is continuously rewarded simply because it happens to come from a male - - even after other VP's have complained about this individual!

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. Your greatest asset walks out the door every afternoon and evening. Once the economy improves, many will not return.
