Top-heavy, unfocused and sorely lacking in cohesive vision
Network/DevOps Engineer (Current Employee) – Waltham, MA – 13 December 2018
A private-equity owned, lay-off fueled, jargon machine.
The company has 5-10 senior employees (out of more than 500) holding the entire suite of products together.
I learned a great deal about how a poorly directed company can be led from the bottom, by talented DevOps teams, utilizing innovative automation techniques, with open source tools capable of adapting to every caprice of a purely sales driven management which lacks vision.
Dynatrace has a core culture amongst the Ops, Dev, and Support employees which runs almost counter to the stated mantra of executives. It is this culture that has kept the company afloat despite attempts by upper management to sink it through gross incompetence and inconsistent leadership directives.
Dynatrace's management has little idea of what they want to deliver, and even less idea of how to accomplish it. Fortunately, the R&D is capable of delivering what should be impossible because they love the battle of overcoming seemingly insurmountable financial obstacles with acts of technical heroism.
