  1. Good place to work, but premium consumer/professional electronics brands is a tough category since the recession began

    Pros

    The company has excellent people, great products and holds employees responsible and accountable for their performance. It also rewards outstanding performance by promoting from within.

    Cons

    Due to the loss of disposable income, the recession has caused financial difficulties for all premium consumer electronics brands, including those manufactured by D&M Holdings. This has resulted in widespread layoffs and several management changes at the top of the organization. These changes might have been necessary, but made it difficult to stick with an overall strategy and provide the resources required to effectively grow the business.

    Advice to Management

    Cut back on distributors to resume direct relationships with resellers so the company can stay abreast of the changes resellers are experiencing in the market. Increase investment in online marketing and e-commerce to pursue higher margins and gain independence from resellers who need to provide more shelf space than ever to inexpensive brands.

    Pros

    D&M manufactures and Distributes top name brand consumer electronics such as Denon, Marantz, McIntosh and Boston Acoustics. In the mid 2000's the company had a vision and growth plan expanding and purchasing complementary companies growing their portfolio in a very strategic manner. A very exciting time.

    Cons

    In 2008 (?) D&M was purchased by Bain Capital and within two years the company began to dismantle portfolio and close multiple organizations and offices while also selling off much of its portfolio. D&M has experienced continuous downsizing over the last 5 years creating a very unstable and uncomfortable environment with employee staff.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back senior management familiar with CE industry to salvage what is left of this company. Company is no longer innovative in product development rather they follow the trend setters trying to compete. Very sad.

    Pros

    You get treated fair. Changing workflow day by day. Co-workers from other teams are helpful and support you if you struggle with a task. Management acts more on a mate style instead of bossy like! Staff purchase to fair prices. Low turnovers!

    Cons

    Salary could be better, but is still a bit over average. No overtime if you like to make some extra £. Not much more negative things to point out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going on like you already do. This keeps the people happy.

    Pros

    Good people with great knowledge of the industry however the industry is going through some changes.

    Cons

    Management has downsized to the point that the company is disfunctional. Too much stress due to impossible workload. All decisions are made in the "Ivory Tower" and mostly poor ones. I suspect the company will be closing or sold shortly.

    Advice to Management

    None that they will listen to.
