Business Analyst - Ecats 911 (Former Employee) – Roseville, CA – October 7, 2015
They are a startup trying to be considered a company. I was the first Business Analyst that they had.
There was really no leadership. Too many managers Each manager had a different Idea of how something should be done. NO PROPER TRAINING I gave up a state job to move into this position. but you know what they say about 20/20 vision. The benefits are horrible along with getting paid every week. Even though I was making more than I ever have we were going farther and farther into debt. There really isn't a team atmosphere there. If your a BA stay away from.
Senior Web Developer for Energy Solutions Group (Former Employee) – Roseville, CA – June 12, 2015
Direct Technology will entice you with high pay and advancement, but when it comes time for your promotion, they are always "having financial trouble", and are unable to give you a raise or promotion "at this time". That time will never come. Your so-called "probationary pay" will stay the same. And that pay is 10-20% below the average in the area. The handful of people that lasted over a year told me they never received any raise.
They make grandiose claims of being the "Google of Roseville". But it's really a sweatshop. You will work 60 hours on a slow week, and they refuse to pay overtime. At one point I was forced to work 100 straight hours without a break! It's always "crunch time", because of the complete lack of management, planning and focus. You will be pulled in a million directions, and none of those directions will ever have clear goals. They have a ping pong table and pool table, but you won't have time to use them. They have a beer tap that's always empty, and a fancy coffee machine that's always broken, and they buy cheap snacks once a week that are hoarded by a handful of employees. These are usually the perks they brag about.
Management regularly lies to the clients, making promises that can't possibly be kept. When the clients come back angry, innocent employees are fired as scapegoats, while the scatterbrained, dishonest management keep their jobs. Being fired is actually better than the almost constant verbal abuse coming from the incompetent management.
Because the pay is so low and the conditions so poor, they only attract low-skilled employees.more... If you are skilled at all, you will get a lot of extra work dumped on you when your teammates fail to do their part. The only people who stick around are ones who don't care about anything, so they don't care how badly their treated, or that they aren't doing anything useful with their lives. Most employees last less than a year.
They don't know where they are or where they are going. I can't see this company existing in five years. You can't run a business this badly and expect success to continue showing up by accident as it has for them so far. I recommend staying as far away from this company as possible.less
They always have job openings, because the employee turnover is ridiculously high.
Incompetent management, complete lack of planning, no clear goals or direction, dishonesty toward clients and employees, miserable working conditions.
Very slow work environment. Constantly have to keep your self busy.
Project Manager to Logistics (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – June 5, 2013
DTG is a great place to work if you are satisfied with just having a 9 to 5 job. Definitely not a company that offer's growth or promotional opportunity's within. Employees are far from treated equal. It all depends on whether the owners have a liking for you or not. When i first started out with the company my title was Project manager which was short live for about 6 month until the owner hired someone else & decided to make him project manager & give me an ultimatum. Practically either i go and work in the warehouse as a logistics specialist or there's the front door... Anyways i wish you plenty of luck if you are offered a job with this company.
free pizza on friday's.
30 min lunch breaks & no promotions or chance to grow within.
Full time machine operator and mail sorter (Former Employee) – GA – June 20, 2012
i would come in and check the schedule and see where i"m at and getting the job sleeve and setting up on the job and getting a sign off from a supervisor and running the job until it is completed. i learned how to make every minute count, even if you stop for a few minutes it can mess up your total at the end of the day.management was not really there because we work over night. the co workers were all close, it was only 6 employees on the night shift so we were pretty close. the hardest part of the job was when the work order did not match the material so we had no way to know what was right or wrong . the most enjoyable part was when we had the easy jobs to do.
Analyst (Former Employee) – Roseville CA – February 1, 2014
The everyday staff at DT is amazing. Everyone is very friendly, always offering to help each other out and learn new skills.
The management is terrible; very disconnected with the staff. The pay is far below the city average, benefits are 'offered' after X days but they will fight you tooth and nail to have that not happen.
A lot of the managers are known to talk very poorly about their employees behind close doors (not in a professional capacity), and then divulge information such as pay rate, performance, etc with people who should not be privy to this information.
Field Technician (Former Employee) – Roseville, CA – October 17, 2012
This department (eCATS) is runned by very poor management - you'll be depressed, many mood swings, promises you the world one day and changes minds daily. You do a lot of traveling and keeps you away on weekends from home with no compensation! Per diem is only $30 a day! You are only paid at $.41 per mile. No standard operating procedures in place which makes it hard for the employee to follow protocol because they will always change there minds. This is only an on-call position and you are expected to be by your phone and report immediately when called upon. No benefits. Good Luck!
A great work "family" with the opportunity to make an impact
Sales (Current Employee) – Bellevue, WA – March 13, 2013
We have an agile environment, and by that I'm speaking about our flexibility to customize how we operate to best fit our client's environment. I realize that's not comfortable for everyone, but if you adapt well, and are innovative and hard working, there is a lot of room to make an impact here. We are a tight knit bunch that has fun together and supports each other, often personally as well as professionaly.
fun company events for bonding and career growth
it can feel too ambiguous or fast changing for some people
staff (Current Employee) – roseville – February 3, 2013
If you are part of the management team things are sweet at this company. Nice offices, good family and work balance and overall a nice job. If you are staff, or god forbid, work in IT, your life is rough. Small 5x5 cubicles, heavy stress, no pay raises and constantly on call. High turnover is expected and no big deal if a key player leaves. Unless you are really desperate keep looking.
short breaks, nightly checks on servers, no training.
IT support (Former Employee) – roseville – March 24, 2013
Very frustrating place to work. The staff is really nice but the management is totally clueless. Lots of turnover, especially in IT. Don't expect a lot of training, raises or support. Lots of good technology though if you can live with the rest of the stuff.
