    I have been working at Dynatrace full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been an employee at Dynatrace for a month so far, and I'm super grateful that I got this job. One of the things that I love about working here, in the Detroit office, is that everyone is super friendly and seems happy to be in the office and doing their work. You get the pros of working for a big company that is doing well, and the pros of an office with a "smaller company" feel. I can see myself working here for many years.

    Cons

    Sometimes I wish that we had more people from all the different departments in our office. For example, we have some developers in the Detroit office, but not that many. I wish there were more as I might be interested in working in development in the future.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good product, smart to replace legacy platform that could no longer compete.

    Cons

    Sales management - spreadsheet driven management style, no value add to sales process. Culture - 97% of reps only care about themselves, no teamwork at all and that is re-enforced by poor sales management

    Advice to Management

    Fix sales territories....ever wonder why so many reps leave after a year? They believed the "we'll fix territories" story during first year, then leave when nothing is done the 2nd year. Just look at how many ex-Dynatrace reps are now the top reps at your competitors.
    Watch out for mass exodus when there is a change of ownership.... only reason more people haven't left is promise of big pay day when Thoma Bravo sells. Unfortunately new people won't get to share in it.

    "You need to be aware of the artificially high rating of this company"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    - Good Tech
    - Competitive Salary
    - Nice people

    Cons

    - One man show. The CEO show. No one dares to challenge any of his opinions. All of the senior leadership are "yes" men and women.
    - No work-life balance. They don't care if your child is sick or whether you had a personal emergency.. things needed to get done yesterday.
    - No accountability from senior leaders. Internal processes are quite backwards. No effort by leaders to improve upstream processes that affect downstream teams.
    - No process improvement initiatives
    - Ineffective, incompetent mid-level management. Most Directors would only be managers in top tier orgs. Most VPs would be Director level. All talk, no action.
    - Cut throat environment. Not afraid to fire people who challenge the status quo and aren't willing to blindly fall in line with how the CEO wants to run the company
    - Low 401k benefits
    - No equity for non-directors and below

    Advice to Management

    - You need to listen to the concerns of your employees and take appropriate action. You don't shoot the messenger
    - If you're going to pump up the glassdoor ratings to attract applicants, you need to make it less obvious. All the 5 star, "no cons" ratings are obviously fake. You're using key phrases taken from senior leadership rhetoric and a lot of people can see right through that.
