    I worked at Dynatrace full-time

    Pros

    Good technology - good pace of innovation - leader in APM space

    Cons

    * Over expansion in field sales - smaller territories - half the accounts in current territories are bad accounts
    * Comp plan somewhat below market and not up with competitors
    * Culture change over past 18 months is highly negative and become a beat-down, cut throat sales culture.
    * Not a fun place to work as it has been the for many years until that point
    * Additional risk and unknowns under PE ownership and poised to be spun off, sold, etc.

    Pros

    Great employees who care about the customers and their satisfaction with the product. (see Con #1)

    Good Work/Life balance.

    Product evolution is impressive and will hopefully lead the way to the next generation of AI and monitoring.

    Cons

    #1 - Unfortunately the mgmt model and prioritization doesn't allow the customer frustrations to be addressed in a timely manner.

    #2 too many WFH and leave the office empty causing collaboration and motivation to be decreasing or lost.

    #3 - painful upgrade transition, especially for those who keep the network up and work to maintain customer satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the worker bees who are keeping the current infrastructure steady and ensuring customers are satisfied.

    Happy employees are happy to help keep your customers happen.

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

    Pros

    I've only been here a month, but in that time I have felt so very welcomed! I still have that that initial feeling of excitement for the new job and opportunities.
    Yes, the office space is cool. And yes, it's awesome being located in Downtown Detroit. And sure there are plenty of office perks, but that is a very small piece of what makes me excited to get to work in the mornings.
    Within my first month, I've been able to sit in on the Detroit Quarterly Meeting, the company wide All Hands Meeting and the Sales Kick-Off. In all of those events, and in the daily interactions with my manager and team, I've truly felt like the words being spoken are true and genuine --- They care about their employees...They invest in their employees...And they are extremely open to ideas and feedback to be implemented.
    I honestly can't say enough good things about working at Dynatrace, the Detroit office and all the people (worldwide) I've come into contact with. Again, it's only been a month, but when you see people enjoying their work, see and hear the innovation happening and the growth potential...when you witness the passion employees have for the work and the company and see that the management team cares about employees as people (work/life balance, PTO time, office perks, celebrations, outings, etc), it makes you want to hit the snooze button one or two less times in the morning! :)

    Cons

    Honestly, I haven't found any cons yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! You've built an amazing team and culture!

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

    Pros

    Fast paced, growth oriented, teamwork atmosphere where your hard work is recognized and rewarded.
    Technology is in the leader quadrant due to product innovation, engineering execution and talented people from the leadership to the trenches
    I've learned more here in a few years than a decade in different organizations

    Cons

    PE ownership limits the opportunity to have a stake in the success

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the future of the technology and stop looking back... all you will see is the competitors on your heels. Leadership is when people are following you forward.

    Pros

    cutting edge of innovation with new Dynatrace SaaS/Managed platform, true AIOps, perfect monitoring platform for flexible workloads and cloud elasticity

    Cons

    The company future is being driven in Europe, no solid plan for NORAM engineering and operations folk

    Advice to Management

    If mgmt wants to continue having a NORAM engineering and operations crew, lay out a career path for NORAM staff. Right now, there isn't a good career path for people who are not in European R&D.

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

    Pros

    . You get to experience living in different parts of the country.
    2. You receive quality training (the method has changed since I was trained, so I can't say for certain whether it has improved, degraded, or stayed the same).
    3. You experience the cutting edge of a critical and rising industry (APM/DPM Application and Digital Performance Management).

    Cons

    1. It's difficult to make friends or meet people in a new area.
    2. It's difficult to make important life decisions when you are unsure what city you will be working from in 6 months.
    3. Pay is okay, but could be better considering the uncertainty mentioned above. You can make more money working somewhere else doing a similar job.

    Advice to Management

    1. I accepted Dynatrace's offer mainly because the people that interviewed me had been with the company for a long time and loved working there, that's what I believed set them apart from other companies at the time. I thought this was a place I could see myself sticking around in the long run because the company was loyal to talent. After certain employees were let go, I'm not as certain as I had been and I have lost some respect for the company, they had let some people go that I greatly respected. It's starting to seem more like Dynatrace will do anything to save a buck, which does little to set them apart from other companies in my mind.

    2. Pay should be better. I find that there have been many important things in my personal life that I have had to put on the back burner or just say no to because of the uncertainty of where I will be working from in the future, as well as having moved away from home. I think compensation should be better considering these factors, but to the contrary, it seems like you make less than you would doing similar job somewhere else. I'm going to point this back to the above point - it's starting to seem like Dynatrace will do anything to save a buck.

    3. Take competition more seriously. I won't get into that one, but it almost seems like they don't exist when you talk to certain people here.
