I have been working at DDN Storage full-time

Pros

Innovative, running at a hundred miles a minute, at the forefront of object technology and big data. Amazing customers doing things one can't even imagine using DDN's products. This company is on to something really big

Cons

Not a 9 to 5 place! If you are used to well defined structure and organization and lots of infrastructure to surround you, you will probably have a hard time

Advice to Management

Nurture your people. YOu are starting to do it, keep at it. You have some of the smartest people in the industry. Help them grow, empower them and you'll be amazed at the results

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

    Pros

    Very good technology. They are strong systems integrators for HPC applications and parallel file systems.

    Cons

    Sales have stalled. The HPC market, which is so dependent on government funding is declining. The companies ability to penetrate more profitable, commercial markets has been unsuccessful.

    Rampant turnover leads to poor morale and declining customer satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Seek new management with growth potential. Develop a strategy and execute a plan. communicate more effectively. Focus on consistency!
