Nice work environment. Easy commute for those living near Manchester, NH. On-site cafe for breakfast / lunch. IT offers both Mac and PCs. Benefits package good compared to similar companies (but salary lower). If you're willing to ignore the cons below and and are okay with maybe a 1-2 years at Dyn, it's not a bad place to go to get experience.
Dyn has gotten a reputation over the past couple of years as a 'burn and churn' company with bad employee morale thanks to regular, on-going 'stealth' lay-offs in literally all departments and dismal management communications about why people have left the company, if fact there's zero communication from management about almost anything except claiming how well Dyn is doing. Some on the senior leadership team have side interests and actual businesses distracting them from their Dyn responsibilities. There's a high level of office politicking and in-fighting from a directionless mid-management team. Warning: bring any of this up in your Dyn interview and I'll guarantee that it will be denied ... and you won't be hired either.11

As a growing company in transition, I think many people over look the many benefits that Dyn offers employees that I have personally found unmatched by any other employer I have previously worked for. Benefits, especially health care, employee perks like gym memberships and free weekly lunches, flexibility within one’s working day and unlimited PTO to name a few. Dyn puts employee happiness at the forefront of its core values and it is unlike any experience I have received from other employers. What’s unfortunate is that many people begin to take these benefits for granted and they lose sense of how unique of a work environment this truly is. Trust me, most places are not like Dyn! Less tangible pros but important nonetheless include incredible industry expertise across all departments and levels of the organization. It is remarkable to have the opportunity to work amongst some of the most respected and intelligent leaders in the industry. Dyn is a company in a challenging growth state and the ability of our leadership (yes product, sales & marketing alike) to pivot as the market demands to stay relevant to buyers and to adapt product road maps to rapidly changing market conditions is not only a very difficult task but also challenging to communicate to the org. I give you all credit as this is said to be one of the toughest growth milestones to traverse and we are forging ahead, testing new ideas and challenging one another to push this company to new levels. Yes, it’s a changing time at Dyn but it is an exciting time too.
As stated above, Dyn’s leadership is making strides in product and market positioning and this biggest Con at dyn is the unfortunate few vocal employees take these marks of transition and market fit as a lack of direction and leadership. Any organization I have worked for exhibits constant change to adhere to the needs of the business and if we think we could operate as the scrappy albeit passionate Dyn of ole and still exhibit the growth we are looking to achieve I think we would be amiss. I’m a proud member of the marketing team which means I am smack in the middle of message and market transitions. Change needs to acknowledged for what it is, a means of growth and innovation. It is not a lack of direction nor leadership but an example of savvy executives who get the industry and want to position Dyn to win. I hate to say it but the Con is us (at least a few of us). We all need to stop being a part of the problem by resisting change but being a part of the solution and operating with a team mentality; after all, we are all marching toward the same goal!7
