    Current Employee - Project Manager in New York, NY

    I have been working at Dash Financial Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Smart, hard-working people, good energy, they value the right people. Tremendous personal understanding of a balance between work ethic and personal life, feel respected by management and always welcomed. Ideas are always welcomed and often challenged, creating even better ideas as a team.

    Cons

    Trade Desk should be in NYC

    Pros

    -Autonomy -Work at your own pace (But expected to make results) -No toxic work late culture (although there may be emails outside business hours) Overall a great place, it's mostly "make your own future" here at DASH. If you can't create your own work, handle your own schedule, and get things done then it's probably not for you. People are also very honest, if they have a problem they tell you, so while this may be a little too forward for some, the advantage is you know where you stand with people.

    Cons

    -Expected to create your own work -Senior Leaders are very busy, hard to get feedback

    I worked at Dash Financial Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Primarily AMAZING people, but also lots of other good things. I'm genuinely thankful that I had the opportunity to work here. - Incredibly talented, hard-working people -- to some extent throughout the company but especially so on the Operations team. Until the day I left, I felt like I constantly learned so much from my coworkers

    Cons

    I wish employees could have remote work flexibility. Besides of it, everything was great.

    I worked at Dash Financial Technologies full-time for more than a year

    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. There is no grow only the people you see on the website have power.

    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 any transparency and you constantly feel like you need to watch your back.

    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 turn over rates were shockingly bad. You never knew who or when the next "lay off" would be. Most of the time it was simply because management didn't understand why that person was important or because that person said the wrong thing to the wrong person and was stabbed in the back. They superficially care about their employees until they decide that employee is no longer of use to them. The execs play favorites and it's usually to those that have the brownest noses. An ongoing joke within the organization is that "transparency" is in their tagline but nothing about the way they operate is transparent. My coworkers and I begged for more communication, for an organization chart, anything that gave us more insight and they downright refused. They are also extremely excessively litigious, as other posters have mentioned. I'm so glad I didn't have to sign a separation agreement, I can't even imagine how much those probably hold you by the balls. They do work, though, I think Dash would have more poor reviews if people weren't so afraid of the company finding out who they are and going after them.

    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 the dice with this firm, read all the fine print. The CEO is not Scott Goldfarb, it is Peter Maragos and has been since the latest merger. These opinions of the firm do not reflect on Goldfarb.

    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.
