    I worked at Data Device full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pays the bills, cafeteria on site. Other than that I can't make the min require words needed for pros.

    Cons

    Lack of team work, urgency and innovation. Most employees have been there for decades and do not have the desire or ability to try better or efficient ways as it might threaten their job.

    Advice to Management

    Do a complete gut. The company will not thrive with the current culture. You will not retain new hires with old school practices and thinking. Also way too many layers of same job functions overlap thus loosing accountability and create a blame game when tasks arent done. Old system - which yes is being updated however the IT dept spearheading project is clueless. Hire consoltants. You cant use old blood to create new thinking!!!

    I worked at Data Device full-time

    Pros

    Certain departments work well together and are able to attain their business goals. A lot of employees have longevity but in some positions this is not a PRO.

    Cons

    Some managers need management training. Employees are promoted to manager titles but have no idea how to manage the people that report to them. RIFs when sales goals are not met.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at Data Device full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good hard working people but no time to train the new people on the outdated systems.

    Cons

    Greedy top level. Long hours and unrealistic deadlines. Very top Management are
     there just for the quick $ and don't care about the workers. Great co workers but so over worked that don't have time to show you the system. Paranoid management limits access to what is needed to function. Very very old documentation system causing lots of unnecessary work and time wasted and it becomes so frustrating. As soon as the co was sold they cut the July shut down and profit sharing. Very greedy management with zero value for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    You have some really good people that you killed all the moral. Sold the co for $1 Billion and still no value for the employees. How much is enough.

    I have been working at Data Device full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Christmas shutdown
    - Turkey for Thanksgiving
    - Average benefits
    - Some nice people work there (non-management)
    - Cafeteria on site

    Cons

    - Blame culture
    - Regular periodical layoffs (every 6-8 months)
    - Tyrant CEO and rotten upper management (no ethics)
    - Old technology and serious business atrophy
    - Severely dysfunctional and understaffed
    - Poor work-life balance
    - Very low employee morale
    - People leaving the company after 1-2 years (average tenure)

    Advice to Management

    You will need to change radically to turn the place around. That probably won't happen. So run the show for as long as possible, fill in your pockets and hit the street.

    Increase the salary for the technical personel, since they drive the business. Otherwise, you will loose good people.
