Good work environment, but would like more room for growth within the company. I enjoyed the people I work with but sometimes I feel like there needs to be more communication between management and employees.
Typical day at work was a bit monotonous, but the atmosphere was nice and they were very flexible about scheduling. Management was approachable and accessible. The workplace culture was very friendly and open. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the myriad exceptions created by the lack of standardized formats amongst the bills that came in. The atmosphere is probably the best part of the job. I didn't talk much, but everyone was very friendly.
I held an internship, so my day was probably not a typical experience of an employee. I assisted with updating documentation for process manuals, such as minor editing, updating pictures, and ensuring that the steps were still relevant and clear in the guides. Also, I worked researching the ordering process to help find what was issues were preventing them from proceeding.
I really enjoyed my time working with Dimension Data. I loved my team and we worked very well together. The reason I left this company is because the turnover rate in my department was a little high for my comfort. Instead of focusing on the work we had at hand, I was spending more time training new coworkers. The turnover rate was high because our department was seen as a "get your foot in the door" position so teammates were moving to a different department at the rate of one person per month.
Dimension Data, Centreville office has been and overall nice place to work. An explanation of benefits and opportunities within the company are seldom spoken about and compensation per market average are far below the norm.
This environment is toxic. Unless you are in the inner circle and well liked you will forever have problems. Do not complain to HR you will wait 6 months for reply that reads. "No issues found" that does not even come from the HR person that was or is handing your concerns. As for calling the ethics hotline yet another joke... I was once called into a meeting and told turn off your phone and do not tape this conversation. In a call to ethics that was discussed so much for safe guarding the employees.
management Favortism, unfair hiring/firing practices, did I mention management
