Engineering (Current Employee), FramingtonAugust 20, 2015
Pros: Fun people, decent benefits
Cons: Low paying for the industry / MICRO-management / dead end - no growth potential.
The people are nice and say the correct things.
Most co-workers are nice and easy to get along with.
The job is a piece of cake and allows you to work from home some of the time.
They claim they want to see you succeed but there's no formal training provided and very little in house training.
Office politics are high because people want to keep the focus off their inability to manage.
I normally stay clear of these outdated little companies and I was recently reminded why.
NO process documentation so you can be arm chair quarterbacked later.
The good old boy / girl network at play.
The management is the worst I've seen thus far and I've seen bad management before. (people playing the game collecting a check, nothing really to offer).
I'm still trying to figure what the company sells and how they dupe companies in to purchasing the service.
I've seen employee turnover of 25% in less than a year.
People either leave or switch departments (if they have relationships inside the company).
It's a temporary stop for any talented professionals.
The job security is high because who would want to stay.
If you can handle the BS then this is the place for you!!!

Silo centric and challenging to work as a team towards real outcomes
Business Development Manager - Managed Services (Current Employee), 11-1& Dorcas Street, South Melbourne, Vic 3001August 3, 2015
Pros: Working with experienced and skillful co-workers. Good super/ insurance scheme
Cons: Very silo based culture and uninspiring upper mangement
The company has 3x general sales team "commit" meetings and 2x internal Line of Business meetings to confirm deals closing for the current month as well as at least 2x mandatory webex "product update' conferences and at least 2x 'partner' product/ services presentations every week. Also, a compulsory meeting and presentation with the 'opportunity review board' for every deal worth >$100K GP and 3 formal stages for sale pricing approval. As such, a typical day can be quite frustrating and consists of trying to fit in customer and opportunity development/ close time around at least 3x mandatory internal meetings.

Thanks to its strong Cisco re-seller background and a recent acquisition spree, DD has some good IT solution offerings in the Connectivity, Cloud and Real time threat management space,

The senior leadership and management team comprise resources that have been with DD for over 15 years, so do not have the wider perspective and cross pollination skills that comes from working with other companies that helps with achieving the agility and flexibility demanded by the current customer base.

DD has some very smart, experienced and skilfull resources who are a pleasure to associate with as co-workers.

The hardest part of the job is trying to overcome the deeply ingrained silo based culture and trying to get all stakeholder resources and line mangers to work as a team towards a common productive purpose.

The most enjoyable part of the job is discussing the business problem with the customer, crafting a suitable potential solution with the pre-sales & product specialist teams and delivering the win-win outcomes for the customer and DD as promised. .
