  1. Good company culture. Micro management and lack of empowerment for senior managers.

    Pros

    Good, positive company culture where the employees are listened to. Some good, generous staff benefits. OK office location and facilities.

    Cons

    Very conservative, risk averse organisation. Would rather accept inefficient work practices and processes than change anything. Salary on the low side when compared to competition. Senior Management has been their for ages so they have an unrealistically positive view of the companies culture. If you have been at DD for over 2 years, so are accepted, for the first 2 years your opinions and concerns are generally ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Constantly cutting costs will not lead to business growth. You need to identify where inefficiencies are and actually make changes rather than just stick with the status quo.

  2. Opportunities if you want them enough

    Pros

    Latest technology
    Great co-workers
    Diversity in engagements
    Flexibility in work, I.E. time if needed, work unsupervised, time to study and train

    Cons

    Easy to be pigeon holed into one technology (pro and con)
    Relies on customer needs for technology deployment (what customers want - not what vendors push).
    When a project is required to put in 110% it is expected (but supported by management)
    Often overtime is not costed but still required, so time in lieu is available but not cash

    Advice to Management

    Give more information for plans for strategy and technology for the come 12/24 months
