    I have been working at Data Device full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Christmas shutdown. Company closes between Christmas Eve and reopens after New Years Day.

    Cons

    Everything. #1 Antiquated working environment. #2 Horrible system. #3 New President directs Senior Management to complete tasks to improve however they poorly execute theses new process to appease him without fully thinking through #4 Everyone is miserable and employees are not valued or appreciated. 2% raises are giving to good employees. Company is very cheap and they expect you to break your back and work long hours uncompensated.

    Advice to Management

    Although your driven by wall street and don't get about employee/work life balances you should understand that and appreciated employee will actually work harder and better for you! Also DDC is so broken you really need to do a complete gut and have new management with fresh perspectives and ideas!

    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.

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    Good hard working people but no time to train the new people on the outdated systems.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

    Pros

    Holiday shutdown. Good people to work with.

    Very low salary and huge work load.

    Advice to Management

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