What is health insurance like at Digital Air Strike?

Pros

I worked for DAS for 9 months. I was still in school so only able to work part time. If I didn't have to move out of AZ I would still want to be working there. Truth be told, it was my first "real" clock in/clock out job. I could not say enough good things about this Company, the people I worked for and with. As long as you car about Digital Air Strike clients and do a good job, the management team treats you so well, because that's all they care about too! My manager, Chad, allowed me to be very flexible with my schedule, I was able to have a great work/life/school balance. In turn, I tried to work hard while on the clock to show my gratitude. I was surprised by how chill the DAS culture was, they do expect a lot out of their employees, but they really give so much back to them too. It was such a fun place to work, ping-pong tables, foosball, so many fun team and Co events and activities both in the office and after hours. BUT, if you can't work and and smart, this IS NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU, you'll stick out like a sore thumb. Everyone always talked about how great their benefits were and that they even had great health insurance for their pets!! -Fortunately, I was still on my parent's insurance so I didn't have to worry about that yet. I found out that a lot of the Sr. managers there started straight out of college in the department I was in and 4-8 years later they running big departments, going on cool trips, and advancing their careers. I was lucky to have DAS as my first corporate employer, they really set the bar high.

Cons

There are only cons if you're lazy.

Advice to Management

Keep listening to your employee feedback in those nice lunches you host for them...that means a lot to everyone.

Does Digital Air Strike offer massages?

Pros

The company provides a couple of unique benefits to offset the incredibly low salaries,

Cons

Management and C-Suite are exceptionally over-weight and/or smokes because the company lacks any work/life boundaries. The company is plagued with high turnover that stems from it's mentally and physically sick culture. You can earn 15-minutes massages, but that doesn't seem to have helped improve anyone's health or reduce the rampant obesity inside the office.

Advice to Management

Improve the health of your company!

How are senior leaders perceived at Digital Air Strike?

Pros

This company has a great culture. The health benefits are excellent. The company covers 90% of the employee's cost. After 6 years at the company they even cover employee's contribution making it free. There is a lot of mentorship and you basically have a buddy that helps you moving ahead in the company, career and personal life. They work around your personal goals and encourage learning new skills and also reimburse for any courses taken. No one tries to take credit for your ideas or work and everyone is very respectful. They acknowledge even small contributions and encourage you to explore additional ideas to do your work faster, better and help our customers succeed. Our CEO puts a lot of effort on team building, leadership and she is always taking notes on any new idea or solution we have. She makes us feel like we are all working towards the same goal. On the side note: She is the only employer that knows each employee by name and takes interest in employee life.

Cons

The Con is basically that we pivot a lot. This is not the company's fault as such, the market is changing every day and we have to be fast/agile and deliver the solutions before our competitor does. For example due to COVID we had to develop solutions needed by our customers and put on hold others we were working on pre-pandemic. I would say the pivoting is a necessary evil and it keeps us on our toes and helps us in evolving.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing -- evolving and growing.

What are some insights into the strategy or vision at Digital Air Strike?

Pros

DAS gives team members plenty of opportunities to take initiative and break out of their comfort zone. I joined as part of an acquisition and was given the responsibility and resources to see out a product vision from concept to launch. Team members have far more ways to grow and level up than in a typical corporate ladder and I was able to make an impact at DAS in ways I have not been able to at previous roles. I think this is a direct result of the entrepreneurial culture at the company.

Cons

Like any company at DAS's size, there are plenty of areas where more established process and policy would be helpful. The leadership team is making a concerted effort to improve in areas like objective-setting, performance reviews, and talent management. That being said, they are relatively early in their journey and these practices require years to take root.

Advice to Management

Continue promoting initiative and an entrepreneurial spirit as core values of the company - this is very attractive to prospective team members. Invest even further in process and people management - leadership recognizes how important this is and more concrete steps in terms of policy and tools would serve the organization well.

How are the career development opportunities at Digital Air Strike?

Pros

I think the greatest testament to what it is like to work at Digital Air Strike is that so many former employees seek to come back after testing the waters at other companies. When they come back they always say the same thing - the promises of other companies always fall short of expectations and they didn't appreciate how consistent, how transparent and how supportive the employee experience is at Digital Air Strike. There's a reason Digital Air Strike has just been certified for the 3rd year in a row as a Great Place to Work. Some of the specific Pros of my experience at DAS include: - Whenever I ask for help I get it - When I make a mistake and hold myself accountable I have always been encouraged to learn from it and move on. Nobody is keeping score. - DAS does so much with lots of little benefits, lots of employee experience events and ways to get involved in the culture. You may be able to find more money elsewhere but you won't find a better opportunity to be involved in shaping the cultural experience of you and your co-workers. - The opportunities to learn and grow a career are great and quite diverse. You may have to be aggressive in raising your hand and claiming those opportunities but they are there! - We work hard when we're at work, and there are project-based or seasonal periods where we have some long days, but the work/life balance is really good.

Cons

DAS operates in a quickly changing and evolving market so we never get much of a chance to pause and catch our breath. That means you have to be agile, flexible and open to direct feedback to see challenges as opportunities when market demands drive plan changes. It's cliche to say that a workplace is "fast paced", but we really are. If you're not someone that wants to fully invest themselves in their work day to the point that you feel like you left it all on the field at the end of the day (sorry for the sports metaphor), DAS may not be the place for you.

Advice to Management

I love our mission, vision and values at DAS, but given all the things I said above about how fast we move to get all the things done, I'd like to see senior management continue to find time to articulate how the mission and vision are translating into current objectives we're all working on and how what each role does contributes to achieving our short-term goals and long-term objectives. I love the quarterly company meetings where senior execs get out of the weeds and talk about the big picture of why we're all doing what we're doing and where we're heading - so keep it up!
