Good culture, smart people, good learning environment
Worked here as a solution architect for 6 years. During this time, I learnt alot beause my team , managers and mentors taught me alot. I was very lucky to have a sales mentor, enterprise architect mentor and a fantastic manager for 4 out of the 6 years as an architect. I had an internal promotion after 2 years.
Line management is generally good, but and next level is good. But I've never seen anything done of value by Senior Execs. The cloud business unit was probably the most useless internal mob I ever encountered. They lived in their different world and operated differently.

The most enjoyable part of the job is that you got to work with good clients and good interesting projects. When I say good clients, I dont mean ones that price shop you to death or ones that constantly want free consulting.

Workpalce culture was good when I was there. When other architects come to DiData, they learnt alot of new stuff through internal governance and the rigorous planning required ahead of deal submission.

Enjoyable project work but there are management issues!
I enjoyed carrying out the project work, which had me travelling locally to client sites. I was working with remote engineers, some who were in other states/ or even countries, and they were all great to get along with and knowledgeable and helpful. When not carrying out project work, I was in the local office, either preparing for upcoming projects or online training. I was also sent to many vendor training/ and presentations. The other engineers in the office were great to work with, and friendly, so we all frequently spoke to one another while in the office.

There are managerial problems, even to the extent where staff members are bullied.

Working hours became increasingly long, with many out of hours working weekend.

The office is dull, and depressing.

Not enough support is offered to the Engineers, not locally in the office anyway.

Engineers are overworked and over utilised, with very little appreciation for the work that they do.

The office and the work slowly drained the life out of me, and other Engineers!


After leaving the company, I had very little confidence left due to the managements feedback to my work (all of which was praised by the Project Managers!). I have spoken to other Engineers while working for this company, and since leaving, who have all experienced the same. This really needs to be reviewed.
Pros
Great project work, Latest technology exposure, good salary.
Cons
Poor management, bullying, overworked with no appreciation. No work life balance!

Useless Management
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.

Difficult, miserly place to work, incompetent management
Took a low paying contract role to help the business secure the role
Found out they were billing me out at exorbitant rates


Regular meetings with Technical PM and told to only do what was billable to customer


Regular meetings with Business PM (customer) and focussed on what was needed - not just billable
Pros
No pros
Cons
Micro managed, underpaid, body shop

A great place to be exposed to a variety of technology vendors. Financially tight most of the time so there is lack of external training, travel, and celebration (beyond office cakes)

Understanding manager that provides worklife-balance

Lack of structured organisation
