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

    Pros

    I've been working here for two years. Strong leadership now in place who regularly communicate vision. Technology is rock solid. Organization regularly rewards hard work. Comfortable working facilities, fun place to come to work.

    Cons

    None to speak of. All pros in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Employees appreciate the transparency - keep it up.

    Pros

    Great community and culture. Even though many roles are remote, the leads do a great job of creating a sense of community and coming out to your region as much as possible. Everyone is very friendly and collaborative.

    Dynatrace is a leader in it's space and the products have great support, both formally and informally throughout the teams.

    Awesome career development with clear goals and frequent reviews to continue your path toward those goals. Tons of training and development opportunities to continue your growth as well.

    Benefits are also great and there are many incentives/awards to highlight accomplishments.

    Cons

    Some roles require travel or long term engagements at clients which may be a downside for some, but those are well defined before you start.

    With many roles being remote, it's tough to get everyone together for community outreach/volunteer opportunities. While there is a new volunteer program for 2018, I'd like to see a little more done in terms of giving back and improving the world around us.

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

    Pros

    Love the company culture! It was a big change for me to come from a company focused on reasons "we can't" to Dynatrace where everyone is focused on "we will". It's also tremendously easier to help sell a product that you believe in.

    In general, the company really seems to have its stuff together. Even HR and IT processes work quickly and painlessly.

    Cons

    It's a pro and a con, but the company provides a LOT of training out of the gate. Great that we're really being enabled to be successful but at the same time, lets get going.

    Advice to Management

    So far it's been a great experience joining the company. The only thing I could maybe suggest is to make it a little easier to see how you and your team is doing against quotas throughout the quarter.

    Pros

    -Dynatrace product is fantastic and can truly transform the way companies monitor and remediate their applications
    - If I was a European employee I'd probably give 4+ stars.

    Cons

    -If you work in the U.S. be prepared to take orders from Austria
    -Veneer of innovation often gets overridden by top-down directives
    -A tale of two companies: Growing, dynamic and innovative in Europe; stagnant, subservient and underappreciated in the U.S.

    Advice to Management

    You should have made more of an effort to provide opportunities and harness the strengths of your U.S. R&D staff rather than writing it off as a lost cause. Time will tell though... if Dynatrace is kicking butt in 5 years it will look like a genius move.

    I have been working at Dynatrace full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The quality and teamwork of the engineering staff is unparalleled in my experience. The commitment to agile processes and automation is outstanding. On top of that, everyone seems to truly enjoy their work and the people they work with.

    On a more personal note, the HR staff and company at-large was incredibly accommodating in handling my upcoming move overseas to work out of one of the foreign offices. A new program is being developed for US employees to allow others to work as Ex-Pats. This will really foster a great relationship between the labs, both for work and non-work relationships.

    Cons

    There are no cons for me

    Pros

    Great company, great people, and the best digital enterprise monitoring solution on the market.

    Cons

    No cons come to mind. It's a fast paced B2B selling environment, and the time is now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on. The technology is second to none, the available online training and solution videos provide great information in manageable doses, and there's always someone willing to help.

    I have been working at Dynatrace full-time

    Pros

    -Dynatrace is a perfect sized company if you are looking to make a direct impact. It's large enough that we have the R&D to continue to be leaders in the APM space with the largest market share, stability, internal resources, systems and processes in place, and a great culture. However, it is small enough to have ownership of your role and get involved a many different aspects of the company. It also allows you exposure to executive management - you are not just a number.

    -The leadership style is a true partnership. We are all in it to get the job done and meet a common goal. Leadership does not lead by threat.

    -Work / life balance

    -Competitive compensation

    -Open communication from leadership team

    -Amazing group of people

    -Career growth opportunities

    -Great time off policy and 401k match

    Cons

    The benefits are not bad, they are competitive, but in the high tech industry I would expect them to be above average.

    Advice to Management

    In my experience, I would say keep doing what you are doing.
