    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at dbaDIRECT full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, can work from home weekly or as needed, ability to take on additional responsibility for personal career growth.

    Cons

    No real ability to move up if you are not in the inner circle. No real plan for you to grow and unless you live in Kentucky there is limited training.

    Advice to Management

    Star technicians are not necessarily good managers.

    I worked at dbaDIRECT full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exposure to new technologies. Good place to start as a jump-off to the technical profession.

    Cons

    Long hours, low pay, and high expectations. Constant political battle between management and executive friendships. Lots of closed door meetings and secret big picture projections. Don't expect to retire from this place. Not the best team-working atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Employ based on experience, not friendship. Listen to employees.

    I worked at dbaDIRECT full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good to start in. Exposure to a wide spectrum of problems does help you get experience quicker than you would elsewhere. Start/stop time flexibility, PTO, Pay is ok but slow to build. Middle management tries to do good despite constraints from upper management or business model. Work from home availability (this comes and goes).

    Cons

    Company is constantly changing direction and often in survival mode. Frustrating when you know service will not match expectations because of sales or model. Lack of experienced people place extra burden on those who are. Limited loyalty to employees. On call for customers you don't know. No 401k match. Not a company to retire from.

    Advice to Management

    Work life balance.... Off shore cheapness has a cost. Pay your people for extra off hours work
