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

    Pros

    I directly worked for Shawn Whitcomb at this organization and I absolutely enjoyed every moment of my time spent here. The training and real-world experience are invaluable to me and I could never put a price on this brand of unwaivering leadership. Thank you, Shawn, the entire C-suite, and committed employees, for enabling the organization to succeed. Sometimes leadership means making tough decisions that no other person...

    Cons

    There will always be downsides to working at any organization but this is a matter of perspective and opinion of the individual contributor. My advice to anyone looking for cons at any Business is to change your mindset and start to look for more positive aspects to focus on.

    I work in ROI and my manager is the best. She really cares for our team and helps us when we need it. Thank you for all that you do for us.

    I have been working at DataFile Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Everyone says that the people where they work are great; but I've never worked anywhere where the employees are as great to work with. Our operations team feels like family here and that's worth a lot. While it is hard work, I enjoy my team, my manager, and my leader.

    Cons

    Leadership has been a bit unstable in recent years but our new technology leadership is solid. We have alot of work to do to address the growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving in the right direction and our team will be the best ever

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

    Pros

    The dress code is casual and some people can work from home.

    Cons

    The executives at DataFile are unquestionably the worst "leaders" I've ever encountered. It's incredible that they've found one another to form the culture of this toxic workplace. The CEO is completely disengaged, upon the advice of the COO/CIO, which is exactly how he wants it. He has her utterly fooled into believing he's competent; meanwhile, the company burns around them. The former CMO is a sociopath. She is still...

    Advice to Management

    The CEO needs to sell the company, but that will be difficult once the financial audit revelations happen and knowing DataFile has no contractual commitments from their clients (who can cancel at a moment's notice). The company is past the point of recovery/redemption with their current online reputation and 40% overall turnover rate. Not an exaggeration, by the way, the place is literally a revolving door. The entire...

    Pros

    I no longer work there A+

    Cons

    If incompetence was awarded DFT would have a warehouse full of them. You know the scene at the end of Indiana Jones where "top men" hide the ark in that giant military warehouse? Yeah...that would be full of awards for management's basement-tier decision making. So you take that plus ridiculous working hours combined with unrealistic expectations and not so subtle sexism and you have yourself the dumpster fire cake...

    Advice to Management

    Anything I say, like everything anyone says to you that isn't grovelling at your feet, will fall on deaf ears. There is no fixing the sinking ship that is DFT.

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

    Pros

    "Working from home"-- Because let's be honest, we all feel like someone is right there with us even in our own house.

    Cons

    SO many. Where do I even begin? Lack of communication. Either no one knows what's going on or you get told 5 different things from 3 different people. Micromanagment is unreal. Each team is treated differently and has different expectations, which is absurd. The turnover rate is unreal because management has NO clue how to speak to their employees. You ask questions and you get treated like you are stupid. They will BLATANTLY...

    Advice to Management

    Start over. CARE and LISTEN to your employees. Stop making them feel scared to come to you and stop making them feel like nothing will ever change. The only reason most E-File reps who have been there for over 3-4 years are still there is literally because they can work from home.

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

    Pros

    There are absolutely no pros.

    Cons

    They do not value their employees, do not train, and the door is endlessly revolving. With the way they treat their employees and the way they unethically treat their clients by budging prices. The company will continue to crumble.

    Advice to Management

    Change completely.

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

    Pros

    Working form home, working 9-5

    Cons

    Being micromanaged down to the minutes you use to do your business in the bathroom. I wasn't going to leave a review because I feel like there are enough bad reviews, what difference will mine make right? But then I saw a comment that datafile made saying that feedback from a previous employee stating FACTS about the poor management was a "rumor". Such a poor response. The management here are mind controlling hypocrites...
