    Pros

    Great place to work. The people there are a lot of fun. The benefits are typical. They do not micromanage so much.

    Cons

    There is a lot of favoritism. Get yourself in the social circle beyond the office and your good to go.

    I worked at Dyntek full-time

    Pros

    The hiring process is quick but thorough and the recruiters keep the candidates updated. The pay structure is OK with a decent bonus.

    Cons

    Played too much into the political mess of the customer. Employee morale will go down tremendously when you join in on the customer politics and then bash those same customers behind their backs. You hire experienced consultants for a reason so let them take and run with the ball and let them figure out how to best handle the extra curricular mumbo jumbo.

    Telling your consultants the the customer is bad and then sending them in with a pre-conceived notion of failure will ultimately lead to disaster.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage a positive team attitude when going into a project.

    I have been working at Dyntek (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and decent compensation package.

    Cons

    This company has no structure. Revolving door of managers and no defined role expectations. 'Sink or swim' culture. In addition, the culture here is way too focused on metrics and if sales isn't selling and there are no projects which results in no or low billables, you may get sacked.

    Advice to Management

    Value all your employees and build a structured organization. All sales team and delivery team members reporting into one guy doesn't quite work.

    I worked at Dyntek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Quick to hire. Great if you can manage yourself and require no backup from others. Fast expense reimbursement.

    Cons

    Not so many years ago, this company was great. It had great people to work with on the technical side, great management on the technical side, and some good sales people too. There were strong partnerships with vendors and clients. Unfortunately all that changed in 2014.

    A management level change in 2014 placed a sales person in charge of all technical people. This lead to a exodus of talent at both the technical level, technical management level, and even at the sales level in part. A restructuring of the technical organization left more managers than people to do the work, and placed people with a lack of skill in key roles due to "pledging loyalty" alone.

    The resulting departures have left the company a shadow of its former self, and further over-burdened the technical staff that remains. While the person initially responsible has been removed from the position, their protégé was left in charge and has continued the misguided management leading the company into further decline. Lack of competitive pay does not help attract talented people, nor does lack of training or mentorship of more junior staff.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being a 100% "Sales Driven" organization, reel in some of the unruly sales people that over-promise and can't deliver. Restructure the technical side back into something that fits the company size. Hire technical management professionals to manage the technical staff, people who understand how the technology and people in the field work, and hold sales accountable to processes. Stop angering clients by shuffling technical staff off their project because some other sales person demands that talent for themselves. Rebuild your vendor relations by showing real change in how things get done and that you bring value to them. Be willing to pay more competitive wages or take more junior people and train them. DynTek can have a bright future again if you play less internal politics and stay customer focused.

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

    Pros

    Dyntek has really great management and the employees are treated very well. Dyntek places a high priority on employee development and work life balance.

    Cons

    Many of the projects did not have project managers so the consultants sometimes had perform as both consultants and project managers.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend not only assigning project managers to larger projects. I would recommend assigning project managers to medium projects as well.

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

    Pros

    DynTek is a company that is fantastic for A players. They recognize and reward the folks that work hard and do what it takes to get the job done.

    Cons

    The only challenges are for the employees that require to be managed. The employees that worry about how the system works and what everyone's role and how theoretically something may not work out in their favor is a time suck. Just work hard and it will all work out.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone likes hearing from the upper management. The CEO is very transparent and open to anyone calling him and discussing anything. The company is growing, keep it moving in the same direction!

    Pros

    Good steppingstone to a real organization.

    Cons

    leadership from the top down. Lack of direction with an organization. Profit-sharing only with BP. Estes billable time is only as valuable as what they put in. Training efforts are deducted from our numbers so you need to makeup that lost time to billable.

    Advice to Management

    Hire seasoned professionals, not those within the company because they worked many years or because they remind you of your unborn son.

    I have been working at Dyntek full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people including highly technical consultants and Sales executives. DynTek is a well rounded Systems Integration firm that specializes in a diverse set of products and solutions. Not much we don't sell.

    Cons

    Poor executive decisions have been made which caused too many A players to leave the company. In addition, there has been very little effort to backfill those key roles and if they did, they effectively repurposed top engineers out of the field and into presales. Delivery of projects have been difficult forcing highly sought after consultants to be overworked and backlogged for months. Back office personnel are not all customer focused and abide too strictly by the rulebook.

    Advice to Management

    When making important decisions, solicit input from key individuals who have been committed to the company and who it affects. Keep your word and follow through to completion on initiatives.

    I worked at Dyntek full-time

    Pros

    Peer relationships seem to prosper in this work environment and the company has a flexible feel to it. Some of the back-end people are nice and know what they are doing. Salary seemed on par with smaller companies and the bonus structure worked when everyone was busy.

    Cons

    Some of the back-end people are less in-tune with their job responsibilities; management is in a state of flux, making changes over the past year as they try to straighten out the flaws. Pay is NOT competitive and the career path structure is weak at best. Technical turnover rate is above average. Certainly not an “Amazing place to grow” nor is it “The best company for technical advancement”, at least not this year.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees, keep them in the loop. If you want people to stick around, recognize their successes, not just their failures. Try to keep making changes that are best for the company as an entity, not best for individual people.
