Fantastic People
Sr. Recruiter (Current Employee), Raleigh, NCDecember 9, 2014
The company offers the opportunity to work with a great team of very smart, very engaging executive staff. The work life balance is there in terms of having to go into an office daily, but the way they work hard and work often. If you are part of the "in-group" there is a tremendous amount of growth potential,k but the lower level managers are not actually – more... "growing" their staff to take on new or different challenges. Compensation is standard for the industry. The culture is one in which people like to have fun, but where the job gets done. There is very little bleed from work to social, resulting from a more mature organization. – less

Desperate Seeking A Job
Project Manager Implementation (Current Employee), Centreville, VANovember 22, 2014
Pros: friendly co-workers
Cons: management favortism, unfair hiring/firing practices, did i mention management
This environment is toxic. Unless you are in the inner circle and well liked you will forever have problems. Do not complain to HR you will wait 6 months for reply that reads. "No issues found" that does not even come from the HR person that was or is handing your concerns. As for calling the ethics hotline yet another joke... I was once called into – more... a meeting and told turn off your phone and do not tape this conversation. In a call to ethics that was discussed so much for safe guarding the employees. – less

Micro-managed to the fullest
Service Desk Associate (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCNovember 9, 2014
Pros: pay, technology, 1 hour lunch breaks, plenty of eateries nearby
Cons: management, fake people, disorganization, being micro-managed.
My brief time at Dimension Data in Charlotte was a time of great stress and minimal direction. I was thrust into onto the phones in the GSC (as a Service Desk Agent) after only an hour of shadowing another employee.

The manager at the time was grossly unqualified - I think she was hired because of her looks. In any event, if you get lost and have a – more... question she's going to refer you to the "specific process" document for whatever task you're attempting. This was largely because she didn't know what she was doing.

Also, EVERY client has a different process for everything so good luck with that. you better take excellent notes and perhaps create a spread sheet to keep track of it all.

The people were friendly enough. The Pay was nice.

My time with the company ended when I was close to getting a shift change. The incompetent manager listed above found out about this by trolling my chat logs with the other shift manager and created a week long saga that included 2 face-to-face meetings with her.

If you do work here, be prepared to kiss management's back side and be talked down to on a consistent basis. Be prepared to never know what you're doing right while well informed on everything you do wrong. – less

Great Company to work for

Pros: great atmosphere, great people
Cons: traffic to my job is a bit stressful at times but manageable.
Dimension Data is a great company to work for and the management are very willing to help where it's needed. They offer a lot of support and useful information which can further your career and experience. My colleagues are a great and very fun to work with. They are lively and bring a smile to your face all the time. We are like a giant family at DD. – more... One of the great things about my job is that I don't get baby sat and watched if I am doing something wrong. They trust us to do what we are good at doing, IT. – less

Early terminated migration job
SCCM CONSULTANT (Former Employee), LOndonSeptember 16, 2014
Cons: lack of clarity from management
Gave up a permanent job to move to DD as a contractor on a 1 year placement. Sadly this was terminated after 7 weeks which was not ideal in any way at all. Extremely disappointing in every respect. The experience really does not warrant any further comment.

Client Sales Operations Executive (Former Employee), Fleet, ENGAugust 15, 2014
Pros: dress down fridays and social occasions
Cons: long hours somtimes towards month end
Dimension Data is one of the best companies I have worked for, typical days were never the same as you were always dealing with new queries. The opportunity to take part on Harvard online learning was exceptional, the management and co-workers are all extremely supportive and helpful. The most enjoyable part was learning new and exciting things and – more... knowing that every day you learnt something new. It was hard to adapt to new systems, but that's all part and parcel of the journey – less
