    Pros

    The San Diego, CA office has one of the best, hard working people i've ever met

    Cons

    The organizations has a territorial culture. We didn't even have an org chart posted in the intranet (this is a tech Co.)

    Advice to Management

    Do not bicker into who should have control over what and focus on the product. Come together as adults set aside management differences and focus on producing a better product. Also don't toss the work "over the fence" and expect it to be done yesterday

    I worked at Dimension Data full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, flat structure, entrepreneurial, plenty of responsibility. Increasing responsibility year of year. Have great ownership & authority to solve client issues. Average to low range in compensation vs. competitors.

    Cons

    While responsibilities increase, it's mostly at the "same great pay". Poor career path. Undergoing aggressive changes to address margin & profitability concerns, as well as pressure from parent company. Crisis management is the normal operating mode.

    Advice to Management

    Need to provide better career path for talent.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good. PTO is excellent. Some jobs allow work from home.

    Cons

    Instability. Management allows themselves to be manipulated by certain individuals. Politics and favoritism are rampant and not for the good. They expect extra work from some and virtually none from others.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your high performers rather than the ones who think they are. Perception is not always correct and can bring you down.
