Way to many changes in the Org these past years due Corp changes
The process has changed the way to often without understanding why change is needed. DD is going through a merger and DD team is not in line with our partner company the current plan is non-functional without any true game plan the employees are feeling the pain. Some have been laid off and some are leaving because the place was a great place to work but with all the change the sr. the team is not keeping the lines of communication open and staying true to there words.
Pros
great people
Cons

Fun place
I worked for America Online which was located at Dimension Date. We provided Americans with internet access, if they failed to pay we would cut off their connections and they would then have to make payment arrangements with us to get connected again.
Workplace culture was the best about the company as we worked night shift and there was always a buzz at night.

The hardest part about the job was when clients called and they would swear at us because we cut off their internet access.
Pros
Fun environment
Cons
Long awkward hours

Work from home options provide nice flexibility and the company provides excellent PTO time that increases annually. There are lots of technical and sales oriented learning/training resources available to employees who want to excel. Great people in all offices.

Room for improvement
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.
Pros
Great staff benefits
Cons
High pressure

Manangement with no strategy
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.
Pros
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
Cons
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
