    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Datacom Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A lot of good people work at Datacom

    Cons

    Was once really good. Datacom changed CEOs and now the culture has changed, innovation has gone and the people who drove the organisation have all left due to a micromanaging culture that avoids any risks. There have been multiple restructures without any change management, and results have been poorer due to this culture. Many of the former superstars of the organisation have formed their own companies that compete with Datacom, or have gone to opposition companies.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Datacom Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Quite honestly, cannot think of any

    Cons

    Insensitive and cold senior management, care about their bonuses and not people. You will only succeed if you become a "yes person" to management (laugh at their not so funny jokes)...mgnt is always on the lookout for someone t blame for the mess they have created over the years. Trust me you wouldn't want to work for this mob.
