    Pros

    Great work culture. The workplace is very energetic, positive, and freindly

    Cons

    They are very misleading with their pay schedule. They make it seem too good to be true, and thats exactly what it is

    Advice to Management

    Be more clear about what the pay schedule and work is really like.

    I worked at DMC Atlanta full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working at DMC Atlanta for a lot of reasons. The main reason was all that I learned and how much I was encouraged to push myself further than I had done before, or really thought that I could do. The people are great and so supportive. The corporate culture is geared toward learning the foundations of business and leadership. While there, I learned sales and business development skills, communication skills, public speaking skills, time management, financial management, etc. The best thing, in my opinion, is that my hard work was always rewarded, always. Overall my biggest lesson that I take with me is that I learned how to be more resilient when things didn't go the way I expected them to go. Which is incredibly valuable as now I run my own company using many of the skills that I acquired with DMC. I'm grateful that training programs such as DMC's exist and that as long as you're putting in the work personally and professionally, you'll do well.

    Cons

    On the flip side of, if you put in the work, your hard work and dedication will be rewarded, it's tough to do that all the time. I have seen many people struggle when they make poor decisions, myself included, and that's rather difficult because DMC holds you accountable for your mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for honoring what you say you'll do, keep it up.

    I have been working at DMC Atlanta full-time

    Pros

    The employees at DMC are AWESOME!!! I had a great experience during the interview process. This would be a great place to work. There are great opportunities to make lots of money. There is no cap on the money employees could possibly earn.

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

    Cons

    I really have no negative things to say about the company. If I were to find one thing some people may not be thrilled about is you are required to wear a shirt and tie. I understand why they have a professional dress code because they meet face-to-face with clients.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Awesome people at all levels of the company- an overall organization that turns co-workers into family. While being new to the Atlanta area when I started, I went from knowing 1-2 people, to having an abundance of people to enjoy my time with. Pro is the work/life balance. Its awesome that we often leave the office after work and go hang out for happy hour or at Top Golf.

    Cons

    This is job is not for lazy individuals. If you are not willing to put in the effort, you will not make it far. But I do promise, if you work hard, you will play hard. Hard work and determination will not go unnoticed here.

    Advice to Management

    You are running an awesome company and creating a lot of opportunities for hard working people.

    I worked at DMC Atlanta full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In depth sales training, tons of networking opportunities, clear path for growth and professional development, healthy competition among managers

    Cons

    You put more money in then you get out of it, favoritism (a lot of managers shouldn't have been promoted)

    Advice to Management

    Focus not only on sales development but personal/professional development. Better measure the success/outcomes of the one on ones that you have your managers schedule, and hold people accountable

    I worked at DMC Atlanta full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, very friendly staff to work with.

    Cons

    Long hours standing in a retail location. Drive your personal vehicle to locations all over Georgia, without gas reimbursement. Oversaturated stores where different team members constantly work in the same store and it's hard to find people in need/want of your service.

    Advice to Management

    Better and more consistent training. Different trainers will tell you different, conflicting "training methods". Gas reimbursement would be nice.

    Pros

    The people that do the PR for this company should be given mad props! I see their company name everywhere as a "great place" to work in Atlanta. But that's where the positives stop.

    Cons

    Like I said, the PR is great. It's so great that the reality of the position is not shared. Working inside of big-box retailers (I won't name specifics) selling a brand is the job. They will promise you tons of training and growth - yes, that's a possibility. The training will be hands on but it will include 10-12 hour days and once you're in a trainer role, even longer days. The growth is only available if you sell yourself to the company and don't mind zero work-life balance.

    In this sort of company, you're really working for the benefit of your umbrella company and your manager. You're working for them to be promoted and get "the big bucks." Be careful. Don't be indoctrinated. It takes a long time for that to wear off, and, for me, it has taken me a long time to realize that I can be successful outside of this sort of business environment.

    Advice to Management

    You are great at training and working closely with people. However having a work-life balance is incredibly important. Everything shouldn't be blamed on the lower guys. Finding another position was the best decision I ever made.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn a skill revered by a select few who wish they had that skill. A terrific work environment and at times fun a really family atmosphere, and you really can get the help that you need from management to be successful. Its a great summer job.

    Cons

    Sometimes the very fun, friendly family atmosphere can cloud your judgement. Long hours, you get a draw, if you do not meet your target. You drive extremely long distances you use your car and you pay for gas. There are road trips in some cases you have to share a bed with someone.
