Pros

Daktronics provides local college students a chance to develop real-world experience while still in school. The people you get to work with are wonderful, friendly, helpful and smart!

Cons

The offices are generally cold, and sometimes communication leaves something to be desired. The communication problems almost always lie with certain people though, not necessarily a company problem.

    Pros

    Daktronics provides a good place for students to gain experience while going to school, it is also a good resume builder.

    Cons

    the training for new jobs is pretty bad, the pay is terrible compared to other companies, and the entire company is overstaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    some advice i would give is to decrease the amount of staff to increase the pay, and implement a standard training program.

    Great opportunity to travel, but departments need to restructure

    I worked at Daktronics full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to travel, work with great customers, fun projects, co-workers, place to build an impressive resume and contact list

    Cons

    Pay, some departments have too many employees while others are overworking employees and demanding them to work 60-70+ hour weeks, some middle management does not have knowledge of their department's skills, workforce and daily tasks, good and hard working employees burn out and nothing is done about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know your key employees and their workload and keep them happy and employed. The concern was all about shareholders and stock, instead of the hard work and decisions that made them successful and gave them the opportunity to go Public.
