    Pros

    We were providing voices to individuals who needed them by supplying them with communication devices. Providing a great service.

    Cons

    Careless merger of two companies. Tobii built up a solid team which made the company profitable and then destroyed it by taking over one of our competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let a good thing slip away!

    Pros

    Great group of people working with who really care about the people they help. They go above and beyond to help and be there for device users.

    Cons

    Didn't care about the sacrifices and overtime worked to do job. Dealing with the timelines of insurance. Company makes reps sign contracts saying company isn't responsible if something happens to the rep on the road. Very low commission for a medical device company.

    Advice to Management

    Be true to your roots of what made you a great company. President really cared about employees back in the day and that needs to be communicated currently.

    Pros

    The employees are amazing! Have the patients best interest at heart. Product does amazing things for users. Managers have awesome ideas and do their best to help employees with a good work life balance.

    Cons

    President is so out of touch with staff. She is arrogant and doesn't listen to the staff or managers. She hides information, is not honest and has no credibility with the US team. President does not I still the TOBII culture with those in NA.

    Advice to Management

    Take a close look at the president. You have employees that will give you everything they have got. You are losing them and with that the strength of the NA market.

    I have been working at Tobii DynaVox full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The work that the company does to help its client base is something to truly be proud of. Work-life balance is improving. Morale is high. Welcomes creative input.

    Cons

    Smaller company so compensation is still lower than it should be for certain positions and opportunity for advancement is relatively low.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to pay attention to the staff morale. Employees are there because of the work they do for the customer, but that shouldn't be taken for granted.

    Pros

    The individuals you work with on a daily basis is very rewarding.

    Cons

    The technology seemed dated compared to other devices that were out there, especially for children. In sales, you wear multiple hats - selling, customer service, insurance approval, etc. The Customer service piece can be very time consuming.

    Advice to Management

    Customer service is critical. Should consider having Field Service reps to assist the customer base.

    Pros

    Satisfying work. Most of the people there were good. it was a fun place to start my career.

    Cons

    Tough market conditions and poor choices/direction from upper management led to some noticeable belt tightening. Compensation and benefits not as competitive as it once was.

    Pros

    It used to be a great company to work for - wonderful products that met a need, smart people, forward looking product plan. Now management is only concerned about the bottom line.

    Cons

    Since the company went public, it's gone downhill very rapidly. Salaries are not competitive; there seems to be absolutely no interest in keeping their employees or customers. and morale is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Start making an effort to develop new products, but support your customers and make an effort to appease your disgruntled employeesl
