    I worked at Datamax full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Continuous training, products are well branded and known, main product is best in the industry, good owners

    Cons

    The culture (who wears ties anymore selling technology) is outdated and has same pay structure as they did in the 80's, including the ancient 'draw' system (Also, well below industry standard)

    Advice to Management

    Management desperately needs to practice & use what they sell. The industry and sales tactics are changing daily. It's not even close to the same as 5 years ago. Wake up

    I worked at Datamax (More than a year)

    Pros

    Convenient mid-town location with ample parking

    Cons

    Entrenched female managers that are nearing 30 years' tenure each. Favoritism toward some employees is rampant and not based on any work relevance.

    Competitive. You get what you put into it. Good training. Fair. Great customer care. Good place to work.

    They need to devote more to advertising or marketing budget.

    Pros

    I have been with Datamax for 12 years. In the past 12 years I have been promoted from a field service technician to management. The leadership and support has provided me the opportunity and the foundation to grow and develop as a person and as a manager. It has been a privilege to work for a company that recognizes hard work and dedication from their employees.

    Cons

    You are held accountable for what you do, you have set bench marks and you are expected to learn and grow as an employee. If you are not willing to give 100% and not be responsible for your actions, then this may not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep providing assistance and development training programs for employees to advance from within

    Pros

    Base salary and expense allowance are competitive. Tried very hard at improving their training.
