    I have been working at DDR Corp full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    DDR used to be kind of a drag. We've been through four CEOs since I started, and the roller-coaster ride has been interesting, to say the least. However, DDR is now run by a trio of amazing people. The CEO, CFO and COO are totally brilliant, out-of-the-box, incredible leaders with a real vision for the company. They actually care about the employees and provide real support. Our wages are starting to reflect averages of the industry, which is a nice change.

    Cons

    The HQ is looking kind of dated. I know the plan to remodel the whole enchilada, but until then, we're stuck with brown carpet and dark cubes.

    Advice to Management

    When our stock is up again, remember the employees. We stuck with you through the hard times!

    I worked at DDR Corp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice pay and benefits. Some people were great to work with.

    Cons

    So many. Constantly changing executive teams which led to lay offs. No stability in direction because of the executive changes. Managers are aggressive and hostile, they will bully you to get their way. Mandatory overtime at times. High stress environment. No growth. A lot of favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize the executive team. Stop the lay offs. Stop the high stress environment. Stop promoting bullies! Be better to your employees.

    Pros

    Some good people work here

    Cons

    Leadership is by fear and putting in extra hours/effort is ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the good people leave so it’s difficult to tell mgmt what they should already know. They are in mgmt because they except the already terrible/fearful way to manage.

    Pros

    DDR is ahead of the curve in respects to IT. It provides the employees great tools to use at their finger tips to be efficient, successful and productive. They have great benefits, they are self insured and pass the savings to the employee for low premiums.

    Cons

    Upper management leads by fear. It’s a dictatorship and employees are continually threatened they will lose their job. Your job performance is based on your variance to budget than looking to see if the framework makes sense and we are making the right decisions for the company overall.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right people you can trust to do the job. Be leaders not managers. Be collaborative. Place more value on your people and you will see a shift in your financial success.
