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

    Pros

    Nice people, facilities are decent but aging. New executives are trying to improve but execution at the next level is lacking.

    Cons

    Lack of execution in sales and development. Behind the curve on product innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at the development and sales leadership at the 2nd tier, too much Digi way of thinking. Need new blood to innovate.

    Pros

    Good perks - workout room with locker room and showers, on-site café and walking trails. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Lots of money in the bank but nobody wants to spend it. Shrinking benefits. Very low morale, with lower budgets and layoffs breeding a culture of fear. Recently taking on big company mentality where upper management views employees as numbers (cost).

    Not for the long haul, not a company where you can expect to retire.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to address every niche market that comes along and stick what you do best and what actually generates revenue.

    Work to retain employees who are your best or be stuck with the rest.

    Pros

    There is a lot of different product offerings allowing to create a complete solution for the customers. Engineering support is solid and for the most part based around the customers needs.

    Cons

    At the time the there was limited direction from the company to incorporate some of the technologies and companies. This may be different now that leadership has changed.

    I have been working at Digi International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I feel like I'm not "entry-level" and that what I do is important and high-level.

    Cons

    The training was a little lacking. They need to standardize the training. It took me 4 months to actually understand what I was doing and I'm still not fully trained.

    I have been working at Digi International full-time

    Pros

    Great team environment. Great collaboration. Has some very good clients. Flexible working hours. Flexible PTO and sick days.

    Cons

    No incentive to work extra (weekends, nights). Convoluted and confusing processes. No coordination between teams. Sales thinks they run all delivery and operations, tail wags the dog. HR is non-existent, no employee development. Sales have been flat to decreasing. Too many people believe they are in charge and overall leadership is lacking. Digi has a large company mentality in a small company.

    Advice to Management

    Business needs a divisional re-organization. a matrix structure should be implemented. HR should take a hard look at personnel numbers and productivity.

    I worked at Digi International (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people aren't difficult to work with - Minnesota Nice through and through. There is plenty of free parking and on site 'old school' cafeteria.

    Cons

    Most of the products are pretty old and not very high tech based on today's standards. The benefits got worse and there's been layoffs, shrinking budgets.

    Advice to Management

    Make the culture more entrepreneurial and less 'big company' and stodgy - that will make it more attractive ot younger knowledge workers that can help the company have a more promising future
