    Pros

    Manager level and below employees are amazing. That is it.

    Cons

    This place is a sinking ship. I have worked for some tough companies but by far this is the most toxic culture ever. Upper management will knife you in the back and throw you under the bus to save their butt. A large % of executive team is from Black and Decker and clues of the CE industry. They chop heads like crazy and run with a skeleton crew. The place is a revolving door. There is nothing good about this company besides its brands.

    Advice to Management

    You are clueless. Give up!

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Very friendly environment. Great core product.

    Cons

    When sales slow down, their solution is to cut jobs, so the remaining employees are overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to improve sales and stop cutting jobs!

    I worked at D&M full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.


  9. "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.
