I have been working at Dynatrace full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Unless if you already had heard of it, Dynatrace likely is a diamond in the rough for you. Has all the perks and culture of a fun tech company, but the maturity and financial stability of an established organization.

Cons

There are no cons that stand out as something that is unique to the company.

Advice to Management

Keep it up!

    Pros

    Work from home, travel time is about 10% of the job. Learning a new product. Great team and to work with. The benefits are similar to other enterprise companies I worked at.

    Cons

    Currently, no stock options are offered. Need to offer it to their employees.

    "Great People, Easy to be Excluded if Remote"

    Pros

    - Fantastic leadership with solid vision and focus on people. The CEO, while busy, is generally approachable and cares about his employees, and has his head on straight when it comes to knowing what’s real and what matters.

    - Benefits are on par with what other companies are offering.

    - Flexible hours.

    - Leadership is generally open to working remote.

    - People are generally friendly, and there is an atmosphere of cooperation and collaboration, rather than competition.

    - Good office culture both in Detroit and in Boston.

    - Results-oriented management; if you meet your expectations, then management is very flexible.

    - Management has successfully navigated a series of acquisitions and splits to grow a fantastic organization.

    - Company recognizes operational difficulties and takes steps to correct them, even if they’re a little slow about it.

    - Objectively excellent product, made by geniuses who focus on streamlining the user experience

    Cons

    - Very easy to become disconnected if you are full-time remote. This can lead to interpersonal conflicts, which are made more difficult since you aren’t there in person to handle them.

    - Heavy focus on global user conference can be something of a distraction, and if you aren’t directly involved, can make you feel excluded.

    - A couple years ago, DT shifted from giving regular performance reviews to giving reviews ad hoc. This was marketed to employees as a means by which managers would be empowered to give raises more frequently, based on employee merit. In practice, it has meant fewer performance reviews and fewer opportunities for raises, which are often smaller than what they could/should have been.

    - Largely due to the above, pay is NOT competitive, and does not track with professional improvement (or even inflation), especially over time.

    - Company is undergoing a digital transformation, but is still hesitant to fully commit to the best solutions, or let non-core applications experiment with new technologies and methodologies and figure out how to do it best.

    - Memories of past layoffs make asking for raises or coverage for standard business expenses (i.e. traveling to the office) very anxious experiences.

    - Efforts to unify the messaging have given some teams considerably more leverage in the organization than others.

    - Marketing team likes to completely rebrand every 18 months, which damages brand consistency, and has a ripple effect throughout the organization with arbitrary requirements and timelines that are foisted upon other teams without consulting them, often with a sense of urgency that distracts from other projects.

    - Not really a con so much as something to consider: the company has a tendency to try and monetize things, which can make some applications stray from their original goal and business purpose.

    Advice to Management

    - Make some effort to bring remote employees into the office culture, or else create a unique culture for remote employees, because it’s very easy to become disconnected.

    - Be careful to not lose your heart and your focus if we go towards an IPO (would also be nice if employees got a chunk of that pie).

    - Don’t be afraid of failure (especially in non-core apps), and trust that your employees’ passion for excellence matches your own.

    - Stop changing the branding and logo every 18 months—or at least make the changes small and incremental so they aren’t showstoppers fo other teams.

    - Improving the benefits offering and bringing back regular performance reviews for employees would gain that fifth star.
