    I have been working at DMA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Independent work style, good people, great clients.

    Cons

    Growing quickly and going through growing pains. Management does not receive training on management. Lack of flex time following busy season.

    Advice to Management

    The pay scale and vacation scale needs upgrading. You are losing good people because the basic vacation day and pay scale schedule is much less then your competitors.

    Pros

    The company overall is not a bad place to be. The pay is ok and the benefits are good. It's a good starter job.

    Cons

    Management is backed 100% even when they are wrong. Management is not interested in truly hearing the concerns of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Without the hard work of your employees then you don't have a company. When employees bring concerns to your attention give them proper consideration.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. You're not micromanaged, the job is constantly changing. From January to May you can increase your salary by working over time.

    Cons

    Management lacks communication skills. They have their favorites and it's noticeable. The lack of formal training when hiring in. Upper management lacking the ability to take responsibility for mistakes that are partly theirs too. The raises aren't consistent.

    Pros

    Benefits are reasonably priced compared to other companies.
    If you work hard, your efforts will be rewarded.

    Cons

    Upper management is a bit of an "old boys network".

    Advice to Management

    Bonus pool needs to include more employees.

    I have been working at DMA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    DMA is an excellent company to work for. If you are willing to put in the work and do what you are expected to do the company will take care of you. I have worked at DMA for nearly four years and I have had plenty of chances to grow professionally, and I have earned three promotions in my time here. I am not a suck up to the "bosses" as many people have stated in their reviews, I simply show up to work do what I need to do and it is recognized.

    Cons

    The number one negative thing about DMA is the hours can be long and the work can be stressful. We work hard but also have a good time together.

    Advice to Management

    I would be careful of the information gaps, as many times with a company this size and a relatively young work force the rumor mill can be detrimental to the overall morale.

    "Stable, family oriented company with long-term and high values that have a proven track record of success."

    Pros

    Business culture that is family oriented at the core. Solid benefits, job flexibility, and promotion opportunities are steady. Company continues to look for growth both in existing business model and new areas of tax consulting. Compensation is competitive to start but has high ceiling of incentives with the right focus and drive. Great company if you want to work with great professionals who can balance business with company camaraderie. Several 10 plus year employees on board which further displays the stability of this company.

    Cons

    Job does require travel, planning/scheduling and has forced deadlines that can be a strain if not properly prioritized. Communication is a very important skill to have to effectively work within a team or lead a team in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Management has been very solid through the years with a solid core group that has been around 15 plus years. Interjecting the future leadership seems to be a need moving forward. We are building that depth/foundation in the service sector, but do not see that happening at the high management level.

    I have been working at DMA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great thing about working at DMA is the Flex time, vacation time, the competitive pay, the company outings which enhances your teamwork skills as well as shows appreciation and the management is friendly, helpful and encouraging. Also the ability to work independently without being micromanaged. I have no complaints; it was the best decision I've made thus far.

    Cons

    I'd prefer more hands on training for the people who learn by doing instead of reading.

    Advice to Management

    I think the Management team is great. my only advice would be to continue training and talking with staff and engaging them with feedback in the areas that are open for improvement. I totally love my manager and thankful that I am apart of her team.
