I worked at Datalink full-time

Pros

Company continues to grow and do good business with large customers.

Cons

Product "focus" has gotten very large, but technical teams haven't grown to accommodate. Too little focus on individuals related to growth and support.

Advice to Management

Create a line of communication to field level employees and listen to them. Make sure the span of control isn't so large that field employees feel left out on their own.

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

    Pros

    Good co-workers among the rank and file.

    Cons

    Management is clueless. Hours are 8:30-5:00 for some positions, but work exceeds those hours and you need management approval for "OT" that goes beyond 5pm. Management rarely approves OT since they receive bonuses if they stay within budget. Unless someone wants to be absolutely buried in work for pay that doesn't justify that work, they have to work beyond 5pm.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves. You're overcompensated for being underqualified. A big ego and a bigger pay check off of the backs who TRULY do the work that get you your numbers doesn't compensate for a lack of intelligence or lack of spine.
