    I worked at Dash Financial Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    These are very down to earth, compassionate people at what they do. Great culture and very supportive owners and staff. (Would definitely go back to)

    Cons

    If the words "Finance" "Marketing" "Business" bore you to death ;)

    Advice to Management

    Start investing in treadmill desks.

    Pros

    You get free lunch on Fridays

    Cons

    Watch your back because nobody in this company is your friend. Its about what you can do for the upper management or only those that sit on the board have job protection. The said part is some of these people are learning very bad management styles sociopath behavior is bad for a companies culture and grow. Also punishing people for doing the right thing is some new type of management style that I have never seen before....

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to treat people better and stop punishing people for doing the right thing. Maybe you will get better reviews because the company is very unique. Reputation is everything!!

    I worked at Dash Financial Technologies full-time

    Pros

    I can't think of one good thing about Dash

    Cons

    The most toxic work environment that I have ever been in. Upper management does not value their employees. They don't put any value on their employee's career growth and constantly change your title to fit what they need you to do at that moment and don't give you a clear path for development or allow an open conversation for your feedback or concerns. They love to use transparency as their tagline, but there was never...

    Advice to Management

    Quit. Let someone lead the company that actually values employees instead of just themselves. This company desperately needs a healthy culture and values.

    I worked at Dash Financial Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Free lunch on Fridays, some good coworkers, decent choice of health insurance

    Cons

    A huge weight has been lifted since seeking new employment outside of Dash. I knew the environment was toxic while there but now that I'm gone I see just how bad it was. I should have known when I first started that if 3 people warn you to watch your back, you should probably slowly back away and start running. Most execs are in NY and have no idea about the day to day in Chicago nor do they seem to want to hear it. Their...

    Advice to Management

    Stop working on ways to scare your employees into submission and start working on ways to make the environment a better more secure place. Listen to your employees instead of punishing them for speaking up. Turnover can cost a company 200% of an employee's salary, its stupid business to be a bad employer.

    I worked at Dash Financial Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent marking team. If you want marketing experience, this is a good place. There are still some good people here - there used to be a lot of good people here. However, none are decision makers or stakeholders. C-Suite is driving the firm into the ground from within.

    Cons

    Incompetent upper management. Unfortunately, you can't trust people at this firm; it's a very political environment and deception is prevalent. Every Friday is a gamble if you will be back next week (but at least you'll get a free lunch). Not a good place for a Sales/DevOp/Engineering role. Not a good place to present new ideas unless you are jumping in at director level, but still be careful. If you do decide to roll...

    I worked at Dash Financial Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Dash has a very high turnover rate, they offer free lunch Fridays and they offer unlimited vacation if you are brave enough to use it. The company seems to put a lot of attention into marketing and spin, putting lipstick on the ugly crippled pig.

    Cons

    The company is managed using the autocratic style. In my experience dissenting opinions are not tolerated. In the development team there was always the worry of our jobs being outsourced to the Ukraine. In my experience staff morale is extremely low, and fear is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves and hire competent leadership. FYI...Scott is not the current CEO.

    Pros

    Nice Office space and Building. 311 South Wacker is a great building

    Cons

    Continuing rolling layoffs. Looking like they are moving the development to the Ukraine.

      The new office is in a nice location, there is a strong culture. The people work very hard. Internet connection is good.

      Cons

      Employment agreement forbids saying anything negative, or else you can face legal action. Therefore no comment.

      Pros

      I've been working in the financial services industry for the last 15 years. Hence, I have seen a lot. I have worked for bulge-bracket banks and small prop trading firms. DASH is the most honest and innovative of them all. In my 15 years, I have never been more proud of where I worked. Management has gone out of its way to create projects for me and give me what I need to be successful. Management solves problems...
