      -Very, very hard job with industry pay lower than average but you get to work in NH and not commute to Boston, so that's a plus -Marketing doesn't do enough to filter leads to sales -Marketing rarely understands how to integrate with sales properly -Marketing often leans on sales to generate interest in marketing initiatives -Currently, the inside business development and lead development team is very small -Message and deliverable are often mis-matched

      Dyn is trying to develop a leading company in the Internet Performance space

      Pros

      Great benefits, Flexible schedule, work hard play hard environment. As Dyn has grown a more active effort has been made to focus on career development and advancement. There is a great mix of seasoned executives and start up thinkers. Data scientists and technical scrappers. It feels like there are great opportunities for interested people throughout the company. As Dyn has grown benefits have continued to exceed expectations and expand to meet a global workforce. The best aspect of Dyn is the ability to embrace change.

      Cons

      There has always been a challenge around communicating. I would appreciate a greater level of transparency and openness from the senior leadership team. There are a handful of people that speak up when it comes to Dyn and there needs to be better leadership development from within the ranks. It would be nice to see salary adjustments made to bring more people in line with their role. Even though we are a NH based company we should pay like a silicon valley company and drive higher value from employees. In addition employee stock options and bonus offers need to match plans of comparable companies like Google and Apple. There is something important about investing heavily in talent that Dyn needs to learn. I hope that dramatic change occurs in these areas in 2015

      No complaints on my end

      Pros

      Unlimited PTO, work/life balance, unparalleled benefits, great work atmosphere. You're able to be your own unique self here without being judged. You can bring your dog to work. Super smart colleagues and almost everyone you meet is exceptionally friendly. Never feel micro-managed. Management trusts you to get your work done so if you want to have a beer or play a game of ping pong, you don't feel like you'll be penalized afterwards. Location in downtown Manchester is great! Department teams go out on fun outings just because we've been working hard ex: paintball, bowling, movies. Private cafe on site with delicious food. Free lunch every Tuesday.

      Cons

      Sure the workload can be crazy at times. Management may be trying to figure out the best strategy for the future of Dyn and may make mistakes along the way but when you look at Dyn overall...this company is unmatched! These people who complain about this places makes me think they've never worked outside of Dyn and are forgetting how unforgiving other companies are. The mundane work environment where everyone looks completely miserable? Not here! I'm all for opinions and other people's point of views but the person below who said we didn't get a bonus this year must not be paying attention to his pay stubs because we've had TWO bonuses this year...the 3rd will be paid out in early 2017...so get your facts straight and don't lie please.

      A New Day At Dyn

      Feb 8, 2016 - Sales in Manchester, NH

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      After a year of uncertainty, Dyn has finally found the sales leadership to really move this company forward. There have been some up and down moments in the past, but the message is clear and the time is now. It's a new day, and with the right attitude, the possibilities are going to be limitless. Hard work and dedication will be rewarded and it is very excited to be a part of this rejuvenation. There is no better time to join this company that right now!

      Cons

      The biggest negative aspect of this shift in leadership is dealing with the lingering negative outlook of the previous years. However, this outlook is being phased and the changes are real so anticipate the previous negative reviews to disappear rather quickly. There are always going to be things that people don't like about the company they work for and I would imagine a company cannot please everyone, however the previous negative outlook of Dyn will be shifting rather quickly as the time goes. It will be great once again!

      Not a bad place, but lost its way.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There are definitely worse places out there to work for. Dyn has a lot of great benefits; healthcare, 401k matching, stock options, snacks, gym, etc. Nothing terribly unique in the tech sector these days, but still nice to have. If you're starting out in your career, I'd say it's a good place to cut your teeth, see how things tend to work in mid-size companies. My general impression was that life is better if you work upstairs at Dyn, in client services, bizops, marketing.

      Cons

      Dyn lost its way somewhere along the path as it grew from a startup to what it is today. There used to be a lot more drive and energy around creating new products, improving existing products, and generally delivering a great product to the users. As things pivoted away from the DynDNS customers toward the promised land of enterprise business, it felt like people just weren't as energized as they used to be. Projects started getting dragged out, and it became more about deadlines and slapping something together that would work, rather than taking the time to make a really quality product, or something that wasn't just a copy of what another company had done and call it innovation.

      A company run by clueless children

      Sep 27, 2013 -  in Manchester, NH

      Pros

      They have a nice office, loaded with amenities. They host a number of local social functions and appear community-focused.

      Cons

      It seems like this business stopped innovating the day Tom Daly left the company. I have no idea what is unique about this company at this point, if anything ever was. They are in a competitive space with no genius at the helm, hoping for acquisition. They consistently waste people's time as they seek to hire people as cheaply as possible with no ability to or desire to hire for the long-term. Candidates are strung along until one of two things happen - the "hiring manager" has changed their mind completely about what they are looking for, or they have settled on someone else who, unlike you, is willing to work for nothing. There is no value in this company's middle class for a seasoned employee. They want headcount and they don't want to invest in it. If you have substantial experience and command an appropriate salary, you will lose to a kool-aid drinker looking for their first job who will give their soul for a chance to work at "Google". Leadership positions are loaded with junior executives with little real-world (real-world defined as outside of Dyn) experience. I've met the CEO. He's a very different person than his company. In many ways it feels like he has nothing to do with it, and that is a shame.

      Good company that is always changing and evolving

      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The benefits were great, the people were even greater, and in the early days, the opportunities felt like they were endless. Sure, they have the whole startup setup with arcade games and beer taps, but the real benefit was having a place to work that was fun to be at and was challenging in the right ways. They were also very open with pretty much anything, less and less as they got bigger. Overall, a bad day at Dyn is a lot better than most places.

      Cons

      The best reasons to work there in the early days was a lot of freedom and opportunity. Mainly run in startup mode, there was no shortage of chances to succeed and get things done. As the company grew with an eye toward going public and more higher-level management, the growth opportunities got a little less and less for the lower to mid tier level of employee.
