    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

    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.


  9. "Casual Environment"

    Pros

    It was not a bad place to work at. I did some interesting mobile development work. The coworkers are generally friendly and the weather isn't bad.

    Cons

    Not much of a fan of the city of Pittsburgh. Although the area is more about who you know as opposed the actual attractions there.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at DynaVox is the customers. Great to feel good about delivering the products into the customers that need it.

    The people actually doing the work at DynaVox are what make the place tolerable.

    Cons

    The senior executives are clearly living in their own world. They are rarely in the office and when they are they are behind closed doors with each other.

    Your safety in the organization is only safe if you stay on the good side of the top executives.

    Advice to Management

    Make it into the office or the field with sales reps once in a while. Learn what it takes to do the different jobs and stop changing around the organization so much.

    Take a look outside of the existing product offerings and get competitive. Why buy an expensive device if an iPad and some software can meet my needs?
