    I have been working at DMA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company is willing to take inexperienced yet talented individuals and allow them to grow as quickly as they are motivated. DMA is place that if you are highly motivated and have ideas to contribute the sky is the limit. The benefit package is great and it is continuously looked at to see how it can better benefit both employee and company. While change is the standard at DMA I see it as always moving forward and upward.

    Cons

    There is room for improvement as with any company or position. Communication and organization are two areas that need to be improved. Balance of workloads could be better too.

    Advice to Management

    Be humble, open and involved. Also try to have your finger of the pulse of those highly talented and motivated employees that may get burned out.

    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.

    Pros

    Unique market for business. Coworkers are great. Room for growth within the company.

    Cons

    All VP's are old school in their business strategies, need to replace a few. Technology within the company is so far behind. Training for new employees needs serious improvement.

    Advice to Management

    You can't treat those at the bottom like they don't matter. Stop allowing the friends of managers receive all the benefits of promotions & other perks.

    Pros

    DMA is a great company to work for and I am extremely proud to say that I have worked there for 9 years.
    I have learned more in less time than I did at any of my previous jobs. The work environment is very professional, my colleagues are intelligent and DMA has always treated me fair.
    I enjoy the fast-paced environment as well as great relationships with my colleagues and I appreciate the trust that the company has put into me as well as the opportunities that have been presented to me.

    Cons

    It has been difficult at times to observe a good work/life balance. Due to the success of recent years, the company has grown very quickly. This has created a very exciting, yet at times stressful environment.

    Advice to Management

    Promote healthy growth. Invest more time into on-boarding and training of new employees. Hire timely. Base certain yearly quotas on non-monetary or time-driven goals, e.g. employee feedback, client feedback, quality of work rather than quantity of work.
