Good First or Second Job

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

ProsGreat location downtown next to the new Omni building.

TDMN has a great, even if a little diminished these days, brand name and is instantly recognizable in the community.

Because of the haircut on headcount over the past 5 years added with the small company feel (while still a large company, organizationally it is a cozy, family business) employees must wear multiple hates and TDMN is a great place to get some experience for an employee young in their career.

ConsThe pay is weak for 90% but, to be fair, it is more a function of the value of the positions than TDMN being cheap. There is a huge disparity, however, because I know for a fact that some GM/Managers are making a quarter of a million dollars.

It's difficult to progress due to a shortage of resources, opportunity and budget due to a declining business climate which is not entirely TDMN's fault. Any career development that you engage in is bootstrap and the only real opportunities to grow are to take what you've learned to another company.

Perhaps as a result of the aforementioned low pay and perhaps as a result of TDMN being in an old, traditional (read: not innovative) industry, the workforce is WELL below average in intellect, skillset, and ability. You aren't forced to stretch and outside of a handful of leaders there aren't really any great thinkers and, unfortunately for TDMN, that is what is going to be needed to successfully change course and redefine how TDMN does (profitable) business in the new reality; that of the digital era.

Advice to Senior ManagementRequire an MBA from strategy setting leaders. Seriously though, 1 out of 10 Managers are worthwhile.
