    Horrible Culture; Reactive and inept management; Execs only out to make a buck

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNice offices with state-of-the art amenities but it's all "show and tell" If COO had his way, the place would be filled with used desks from Craigslist.

    ConsNot a place to grow a career, be happy, or work with people of integrity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe a value-based organization and build a real company. Don't just flip it and don't care about the people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fast horse. Wild ride.

    (Current Employee)

    ProsDMI is definitely not boring. Working here gives you one of those rare opportunities to be a part of an intense, driven organization bent on reinventing itself, achieving incredible growth and innovation, and dominating a new industry. In just a few years the company has gone from less than 100 employees to more than 1800. It's launched a whole new commercial and federal mobility business that's getting pretty great reviews from the analyst community and customers. If you love a challenge and want an opportunity to excel in a very fast-paced environment, this is one of those adventures that aren't often repeated. There are some really great people here. Most are pushing hard to excel and pushing their own personal and professional limits to accomplish something big.

    ConsDMI is not for the faint-hearted. You can't possibly grow this fast without bumps. If you're looking for a nice steady 9-to-5, with everything all nicely laid out and predictable this place really shouldn't be at the top of your list. If you're more of an adrenaline junkie and you like adventure, it could be one of those places you tell your grand kids about.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are a lot of fantastic people at DMI. Do all you can to keep them.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Challenging, disappointing, frustrating!

    Sales (Current Employee)

    ProsTalented teams, unfortunately they don't stay!

    ConsGreat teams extremely high turnover! Senior leadership ineffective and dishonest. Acquiring new companies to expand portfolio of offerings and driving it into the ground. Lack of communication skills and respect. This is not a good place to work or represent

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuestion why such high turnover rates throughout the organization. Review the data and analyze then make changes to ensure course correction is inline with value statement Honesty is always good!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Toxic

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDMI's window dressing is very nice. The HQ office is reminiscent of West Coast tech start-ups -- break rooms with large screen TVs, cappuccino/latte machines, and snacks. The offices are nice and there are lots of signed sports memorabilia lining the hallways. DMI parties are over the top -- at the National Building Museum, open bar including a tequila shot conveyor belt, multiple bands, and professional-quality awards ceremony. Again, this is all just window dressing. Definitely intended to impress outsiders, visitors and bankers.

    ConsOn the inside, DMI is completely toxic. Executives and senior leadership do not care about DMI employees. They are focused only on growth at the expense of everything else (caring about clients, doing quality work, creating a positive culture, and treating people well). The office space and office parties as just putting lipstick on the pig. Executives back stab each other. Groups within DMI are openly hostile to each other. The blame game is alive and well. And the top leadership does absolutely nothing to stop it. If anything, they encourage the in-fighting, somehow believing that the best will rise to the top. Like another reviewer said, this is like "Office Space", except that these characters are real. The place is imploding, which is not surprising at all to those on the inside.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCan you advise top executives to actually care beyond the top line and the hopes of a sale? To care about anything other than the bankers and the valuation? I do not think that DMI's culture and top brass are willing or able to change.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I use to enjoy working here!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Arlington, VA

    ProsCompany events, being able to get tickets to events in the area, break area at the DMI offices.

    ConsOnce an employee go to the client site you lose connection with HQ. Needs to pay certain positions more. A lot of turnover has taken place in the last year and half.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReach out to employees on client site more. Better communication.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    DMI ... life in the fast lane with interesting customers, exciting project, fabulous co-workers and lots of growth.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    North Bethesda, MD

    ProsThis is a place where I always feel challenged and appreciated. Meeting customer needs is top priority for everyone.

    ConsDMI has offices all over the world. It is not easy to collaborate with team members who are not geographically close.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in a retention manager to help current employees be better prepared for upcoming new work. Keep the communication coming.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Frustrating

    - - - (Current Employee)
    Bethesda, MD

    ProsTuition reimbursement, company-provided coffee and snacks

    ConsPoor benefits, Disorganized HR, layoffs and management shuffle within first year of contract.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou would probably be able to afford better benefits if you didn't spend money on elaborate parties.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If you have a choice, do NOT make the move to DMI! - Think "Office Space"...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat value add solutions. Top notch engineers that will work all hours of the night to support customers. Customer service is key for clients!

    ConsDoes not care about employees. Micro management at it's finest. Operations is constantly fighting with sales and refusing to work hand in hand to close deals. Irrational quotas. Management does not keep their word. If you're promised a raise, promotion, review or anything that would require more salary, don't expect it. There is little respect from the top down. If you're not a VP, don't expect to get anyone's ear. They are after new contracts, and new contracts only. Asking for help or support puts a target on your back. Executives speak and even email derogatory language to their subordinates, with little regard for who might see or hear. The expectation is that you work...ALWAYS. Nights, weekends, vacations, honeymoon...ALWAYS. No exceptions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn the value of a good employee. I know of 5 currently looking elsewhere for a job. All top performers, in a few different divisions. It's mind blowing how little regard the execs in this company actually have for employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
