    I have been working at DMA full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    DMA is an employee-owned firm in which everyone benefits from the firm's success through the ownership of equity. I worked in consulting and middle management and business development for many years, and I benefited from a manager and mentor who guided me into a more focused, business development role, many years ago. This has leveraged my strength and allowed me to have a longer term career (25 years so far!) focusing...

    Cons

    You have to want to be in an environment that is profit-focused, which requires hard work and the ability to multi-task. Some jobs require extensive travel which can be difficult for some. Success is rewarded, but working for a consulting firm can be stressful and is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest to increase perks, nice gestures and encouragement to staff and junior level employees particularly.

    I have been working at DMA full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, good place to start out.

    Cons

    A lot of catty, childish employees. No work/life balance. Management is not good at hiring enough employees to handle the work load. High turnover rate due to high stress.

  5. Great company who works with you for your needs.

    I have been working at DMA full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I've moved 3 times in the past 5 years since I started here and every single time (luckily) there was a DMA office in those cities. The company worked with me to create positions where I could fit into those offices. I couldn't be more grateful for the opportunities I've been given during my time here. The managers I've worked with are usually pretty flexible with your schedule if things come up. They want you to succeed....

    Cons

    No maternity leave policy (paid or unpaid). No matching 401k. Little give back to lower level staff.

    Advice to Management

    Small things like appreciation, saying thank you to support people can go a long way. Even letting them go 30 min early on a Friday because you just completed a big project helps boost morale.

      I have been working at DMA full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Flexible hours, causal dress code, little gym with a small fee that is owned by the building.

      Cons

      Staff are social introverts, which can make it hard to communicate. The management needs to have a revamp.

      Advice to Management

      More management training and less bad talking to the employees.
