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

    Pros

    Even as an intern you are challenged to apply your knowledge in current projects. The engineers here are very friendly and make time to ensure you gain experience out of the projects you're working on.

    Cons

    Due to recent changes in leadership, I now find my self reporting to multiple engineers on different projects. However, this could an opportunity to gain multitasking skills.

    Advice to Management

    Try to assign projects based on interests, as I have yet to be assigned with an HDL project even though I was hired for the same as an intern.

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Good hard working people but no time to train.

    Cons

    Greedy top level. Long hours and unrealistic deadlines. Very top Management are
    is there just for the quick $ and don't care about the workers. Great people but so over worked that don't have time to show you the system. Very old documentation system causing lots of unnecessary work and time wasted.

    Advice to Management

    Who much more $ do you need? soon you will lose most of your good employees. Stop letting people go to save money while doing well.

    I worked at Data Device (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cafeteria on site (and yes this is the only good thing about this place)

    Cons

    Everything from management to President. Recent layoffs caused a tremendous fall in employee morale....(I mean when a certain person was laid off recently and a bunch of his own employees were crying, what does that tell you?)

    Advice to Management

    Stop aquiring companies that are putting the jobs of your employees in jeopardy. Oh and get HR to stop planting 'rave' reviews on here.....I highly doubt anyone at this place is that excited about their job.

    Pros

    Paid time off is good. Processes are all in place. The people I worked with became family. Close to my home.

    Cons

    I worked for a manipulative, unstable woman. A lot of changes were being made towards the end. They didn't provide much for me to grow as a businesswoman.
