    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Dimensional Fund Advisors full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Collaborative environment, quality people, unique business model, beautiful offices, new co-CEO’s making improvements in areas of need, winning in marketplace, no budgets, strong profit margins, growing faster than competitors, international job reported opportunities, work life balance is better than any other place I’ve worked, senior management very approachable, relatively flat structure

    Cons

    No dress down attire (except for IT staff in building 2), internal communication could improve, decision making is done by a few select at the top and could be passed further down the organization, need stronger leadership skills within management and executive ranks, hiring way too many people in sales (need to staff up more in non-sales functions), company discourages working from home

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on improving employee experience to make company more competitive, focus on improving leadership skills within the growing organization, improve internal communication, improve employee incentive plans and performance management program.
