    "Stay Away"

    Pros

    Home office based....that's the only positive I can think of........

    Cons

    If you are a woman stay far away, your technical knowledge and expertise is belittled by the teams overseas and at every turn, you're undercut. Also there are no corporate credit cards - you are also expected to fund your own travel to very expensive places; you are reimbursed, but you are the one carrying the balance and eating up your credit balance until the reimbursement is paid.
    Just not a happy place with layoffs hitting the US-based employees more than anywhere else around the globe.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say here, you won't listen to a token senior woman anyway.

    Focus on what we are good at

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

    Pros

    Great pay, decent product/market offerings (although market has similar if not better), and good teammates. Really good marketing, it's exactly what they want you to think it is. They tell you everything you want to hear while maintaining eye contact.

    Cons

    There are 4 management styles and only one is effective, helping people achieve their personal goals in a rewards-based environment. Management rules with an iron fist and is entrenched in old-school, outdated practices. The culture is work hard not smart (if you consider that one). Unnecessary and unneeded high-pressure in areas where it's not needed. The good part is it's a matter of time until an outdated model breaks itself.

    Conclusion: It's essentially the opposite of whatever your favorite company is.

    Advice to Management

    It's 2018, act accordingly.

    Pros

    Loved the team building. I can speak for the Pleasanton office it truly felt like a team.

    Cons

    Work life balance. You'll have to put in extra hours to keep up and you'll be seen as a slacker.

    Pros

    Lots of perks like snacks, happy hours. Global focus. Average salary and bonus for the area. Some work from home opportunity, but that's going away.

    Cons

    Very clique, if you don't get "in" with the old boys club right away, you'll always be on the outside. Watch your back.
    Below average benefits especially 401k matching
