I worked at Daktronics (more than an year)

Pros

∙ Works around your hectic student schedule
∙ Develop and build up useful skills
∙ Internships are available available with creative, technical writing and engineering fields
∙ Student pay is based off college credits earned
∙ If you are a dedicated employee, they will do anything to keep you employed

Cons

∙ Pay is based off only applicable college credits (if you work in Personnel as a graphic designer, graphic design classes would not count towards your base pay only Human resource credits would apply)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Motivate your students to invest into a career with this company and or offer incentives to stay.

    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.

    Negative Outlook
