    Pros

    Best reasons to work at DISTek Integration are:
    Great Teams (Automation, Embedded and Modelling)
    Peer Support and knowledge is amazing and everyone helps each other out.
    Managers are all engineers so they understand your perspective.
    Awesome people to work and hang out with.
    CEO of the company knows you by name.
    Profit Sharing with employees (Thanks to CEO)
    Good perks (insurance, discounts and memberships)
    Better than market compensation package
    Truly employee oriented company (It's actually a one big family)

    Cons

    None what so ever. The company has a lot of potential and strength of the company lies in its people who are the best in their fields.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work Sir!

    I have been working at Distek Integration full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee owned company, leader in Off-Highway software development and testing

    Cons

    Employees are contracted to other companies for work, employees that are not part of the main Cedar Falls office tend to have a disconnected feel.

    I have been working at Distek Integration as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Right out of the gates I was assigned to a project with full time employees that was intended for real customers. I wasn't given busy work that others didn't want to do, but real work that mattered. Everyone is so nice and willing to teach you so much and give helpful criticism to improve the quality of your code. It appears that everyone who has been here a long time is very happy with the wages and happy with the benefits.

    Cons

    I don't think I have run across any negatives yet while here. Everyone seems to be enjoying their job and happy with the work that they do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with what you're doing!

    Pros

    The people are DISTek's biggest asset. Everyone was pleasant and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Your work is largely contracted from other companies, so you may get boring or tedious things to work on. There is limited business growth with this model as well.

    Advice to Management

    Try to build more products instead of taking on more contract work. Employees may feel a greater sense of purpose, and diversifying revenue would be very beneficial.

    Pros

    Very friendly people that work to develop your skills as a professional.

    Cons

    The people are very friendly and knowledgeable, however the lack of advancement opportunities and professional development mean that you'll need to look elsewhere after you've established yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Get some feedback from your employees and work to improve things there.

    Pros

    This is a growing company with fantastic people. If you like being challenged in designing and testing software, this is the place to be! Even though we continue to grow, we still try to keep a down to earth attitude and that family oriented feel.

    Cons

    Because we are a service oriented business, some of our employees have to work at the customers site. This can be considered either a downside or a plus, depending on how you look at it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! You do a fantastic job with this company and I wouldn't want to work for anyone else!!
