    Some of the best people in the industry work here, good benefits, opportunity to travel, they encourage and pay for exams.

    Pay is under market value, however they will argue it's not. To get a pay increase is almost impossible without handing in a resignation.

    Better structure around pay for grad program.

    I have been working at Dimension Data full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people on the ground are really good and very supportive. The company is fairly flexible around working from home etc.The salaries are fairly competitive but lean heavily on the variable component

    Cons

    The Management need to be replaced. The business is in transition to be services lead but the Senior management have no knowledge or experience how to do this. This is mainly because they have been at DD for many years and it most cases have never worked anywhere else so they have no appreciation of the market. They continually recycle old management into new positions expecting them to bring change which they are not capable of doing.

    Advice to Management

    Employ people who have been on the journey you are trying to take in the Management positions and more importantly LISTEN to them. You don't know what you think you know and whilst you continue to do this you will never make the transformation you are looking for

    Advice to Management

    Don't read half this crap...after 6 years here in Brisbane I can see who has written half this rubbish and the poor reviews connect directly to the poor performers who were removed from the company....good luck at Data 3 you idiot... I hope the door smacks you in the face on the way out. Maybe you should have focused more on the job and less on the politics and you would still be working here...
