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

    Pros

    Dak is a company centered on good morals and hard work ethic. It is also an engineering-focused company, which is great for product development, but does not provide the greatest leadership for sales and marketing efforts. Dak may be a leader in the LED video industry, but many of its competitors are massive corporations like Mitsubishi which win many large projects here and there but offer dismal support. Dak has unmatched service and support resources.

    Cons

    The pay is notoriously weak, being based in south dakota doesn't really help the cause. Many old-timers have the mindset that the domestic market will continue to provide revenue and growth for the company but it's obvious that the international market is where most of the future growth is held. Project management and customer service are areas that need to be greatly improved if the growth is going to continue. Almost everyone in Dak is internally promoted or changes job roles every few years, which may be good for professional growth, but the company loses productivity as a result. Turnover in many roles is chronic. Hours I work are wildly variable, weekends, holidays, nights, it makes your personal life rather difficult or non-existent.
