I worked for 2 years at Dimension Data as Associate Client Manager. I really enjoyed the dynamic environnement and the management very close the team member.

The people are nice.

It's good to explore and polish your skills of PM in DD due to it's diversity in different industry which also make you feel more pressure and less family time. Pay grade is average but career growth seems to be slow. Turnover rate is, I believe, the same as other SIs.

As the company is rather large and focused on the corporate sector, only large deals are considered

There is no management or hands on guidance, therefore you need to be well versed in their range of products and services

Just like any other company, all the managers are useless and do not know what they need to do. If they give employees space to do their own job, that would help.

Would recommend working there for employees that like to learn, and want a challenge. With new and continual learning from the industry best and largest companies as partners. Dimension Data also has it's own university for learning.

Work is busy and fast paced, but has down time too.

Good delivery capabilities and execution. Lots of hand-picked colleagues from the HQ country South Africa. As a LoB seller, Client Managers will be hesitant to take you into their accounts.

I was very much self-sufficient and left to get on with it as a Senior SDM looking after a single multinational bank.

Most of my day was problem solving and contract management.


This included the maintenance of a client P&L to ensure continued profitability.


Excellent culture and you could get much more from the company than I personally needed.


The hardest part of the job was working with some rather archaic internal systems and processes which were simply not up to the level required.


The most enjoyable part of the job was the variation....no two days being the same.

Not what you know, it is who you know. They tend to employ bad managers all over the business.
With bad managers or client managers in place the tend to lose clients on a regular bases.

This affect the rest of the employees as you are never sure if you are going to have a job in a couple of month time.
Pros
Fun to work at DD
Cons
To much fun no work or support from managers is a problem

Where as productivity is concerned each and every individual is quite productive on a day to day basis. Productivity is key...

Communication barrier at Dimension Data iiNet is very poor and they lack communication.


Feels as if there are not enough hours during the day, However you always learning new things on a day to day basis, whether it be through a new employee being employed to system navigation and new products. Management gets along with staff, but also tends to get very relaxed, it's also about who you know within this space at the company. This does not help that individual grow nor accomplish things on there own. Some of them lack people skills.


Culture at work has died out, it's no longer what it use to be. All that happens is arriving at work, doing what you need to and leave when your shift ends. My hardest part is having to instill values that no longer exists.


Most enjoyable thing about my job, is having to adapt to different personalities but also being able to educate and train the new people coming into the business.
Pros
good incentives and staff events
Cons
Empty promises and lack of growth. Work culture has changed tremendously

Great place to work but lacks in management therefore causes issues regarding advancement, values, and overall job expectations. Bad management causes employee to question value and in turn work quality reflects.

Empresa muito boa, com políticas e estrutura confiável.
Aprendi muito lá e pude evoluir como profissional. A diretoria / gerencia com quem trabalhei era ótima e muito competente, A cultura segue um modelo global e funciona muito bem.

Um ponto negativo é quanto a promoções e aumentos, que demoram um tanto a mais para acontecer, mesmo depois de prometidos.
Pros
Ambiente e estrutura disponibilizada.
Cons
RH muito distante de determinadas áreas da empresa.

As a leading global technology company at the forefront of how IT and communications are revolutionizing the way we live, work, and play. If you love a technical challenge, relish solving complex problems in cloud, big data, or cyber security, and thrive in a high-performance environment, we can offer you an exhilarating and rewarding career. Dimension data would not be recommended by me.
Pros
Work from home
Cons
Low pay

Everyday performing quite a routine jobs, troubleshoot issues reported, manage incident and update ITSM. However, able to learn various updated technology skills & knowledge from its private online university courses. The management are working hard to ensure our service delivery can achieve the target set by providing some coaching and guiding on soft skill. Workplace culture follow standard delivery model. The hardest part of the job is to always ensure meeting clients SLAs even when dealing with complex issue. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the critical issue resolved and received compliment from client email.
Pros
organize lot of company activities to promote work balance culture and social responsibility.
Cons
Lack of self belonging
