The division I was in was mostly.night shift. Wouldn't be ideal.for a family man/woman. They needed you to.work weekends as per international client demand was high.
Great food at the cafeteria
When you sleepy by 4am and still have 2hours left of your shift
Holiday as client wants. No work limit, no didicated time intervals, when you go to the field on work no lunch no time period and no any transportation support by the company. No increment on the behalf of performance.
Depends on work load
The work culture and the people make this one of the greatest places to work, the experience gained is invaluable and there are many avenues to pursue. The one area that needs work is the retention of good staff and helping to guide staff "new" to corporate, on their career options and allowing them to have a more holistic view.
Great staff benefits
Learned various skills. Most of the work is outsourced. Generally take very less people on its payroll. Work culture is good. In terms of travelling allowances and other perks they pay well.
Clients were very demanding.
Management don't recognize nor accept blame for anything, nor listen to advice from staff. Management don't communicate with staff and news of what is happening is typically heard through the press media or grapevine before management send out any communication to staff. Management cut backs (1/3+ of staff gone in past 6 months and not replaced) has left Di Data in a state where it is not possible to provide a quality service to customers.
Some very clever people who work very hard to keep the customers with DiData, Very friendly workforce (mostly) at shop floor level, Online training is available at no cost
If you like working 12+ hours each day then this is the place for you, Don't expect management to recognize your efforts, The workload is obscene and unachievable, you will be blamed by management when you don't achieve the impossible, Lack of staff to get the job done
