    I worked at Dimension Data full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Minimal micromanage, work/life balance was great.

    Cons

    We got hired, gave our 2 weeks notice at our other prior positions and then when you arrive to work at dimension data, they fire you immediately because of budget cuts! You cannot do that to people who are responsible for a family. Why would you hire someone to let them go immediately.

    Advice to Management

    Do not hire someone if you know you will be having a budget cut. We should seek legal counsel for the hardship caused.

    Pros

    Some good people trying hard.

    Cons

    Confused management and lack of industry understanding lead to poor environment. Upper Sales Management has the strange idea that technical qualification is not required for Client Managers despite top sales performers being highly technical. What could possibly go wrong?

    Advice to Management

    Learn.

    Pros

    Large company....if you like large company

    Cons

    This company is about to have major change the first part of 2019, there were layoff during 2018 so it is trying to position for the change. So if you don't want a surprise, then don't sign up with DD yet.

    Advice to Management

    By hiring a big M&A consulting company and make a decision from top down, you are about to become bean counter and less attractive to customers.

    I worked at Dimension Data (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Remote work possibilities, and "appearance" of a busy environment to work.

    Cons

    In my personal experience here, the team of people I landed does not worth the time. I was placed under a group of managers in a project out of control. Instead of reassessing the situation they acted as the "Yes man". They DO NOT care about employees, simply the worse place I've ever worked.

    Advice to Management

    Look into Maturity Models.
