    I worked at Daktronics as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Travel the country. Get access to many fun venues. Great work experience. Great opportunity to stay on full-time in Corporate offices.

    Cons

    Difficult to get a regional sales job if you are a corporate intern, would need to stay in SD for a year or more to have a chance to get out of the corporate offices. Long hours, but you will make overtime.

    I have been working at Daktronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I think they truly care about their employees. They have flexibility (hours, location), make an excellent product for cool customers (NFL, McDonalds) and there are great coworkers.

    Cons

    Though I feel overall Daktronics is an excellent employer, it's really all about one's supervisor. If you a current employee and you don't like your supervisor, your not going to like Daktronics. Not all supervisors here are great but many are.

    Pros

    Pay is becoming more competitive, decent benefits, great PTO program, schedule flexibility

    Politics are terrible, engineers dictate everything, some departments are treated better than others and the pay differences confirms that.
