    Pros

    When there is a change the employee would like to see, the company hears it and makes the necessary steps to change for the better! I am extremely proud to be a DMIer.

    Cons

    I hope that they continue on this path! If they do, I do not see myself ever looking for another opportunity. DMI is home.

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at DMI full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    DMI sends birthday cards, gift cards, and tokens for company and personal anniversaries that really make you feel valued as an individual contributor, especially since we all don't work in the same office together. I’ve been employed by many large corporations and I can honestly say that DMI is the first company in which I consistently feel like I am a celebrated and valued employee.

    Cons

    Recruiting process can be slow/ineffective and we haven't been able to fill several vacant positions on our team.

    I have been working at DMI full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It's ok for a body shop as long as you know what you are getting into. If you are looking for a company where you can grow, this maybe it's not the right place for you.

    Cons

    It's probably not the best body shop to work for. Used to be better but things have been getting worse. Benefits and perks get worse each year. DMI tries hard to sell this image that they care about their employees but in fact all they care is to cut corners and increase profits in the hope that someone will buy the company soon. While there is nothing wrong with increasing profits, in the case of DMI and all body shops most of the costs come from employee compensation and benefits, and that's what they keep cutting.

    Advice to Management

    Doing right by your employees goes against your self interest, which is to increase profit and sell out. So whatever I or anyone of your employees says you are not going to do it. Basically this whole exercise is pointless.

    I worked at DMI full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Once every two years you may get invited to a holiday party. Free soda and snacks. Sometimes there is pizza. They will keep you on with basic benefits with If you're a young person looking to get your feet wet, there are opportunities for you. Just no long-term stuff.

    Cons

    As soon as you walk in the door, DMI will attempt to make themselves appear like a modern, managed services provider that cares about its employees. This couldn't be further from the truth. If you can be a drone and do your job - you'll do fine. The problem is, the commercial division is unable to sign on clients at the same rate as they are losing them. Therefore, the sales and management team has thought of unfortunate ways to increase revenue, such as: - sell services that the team isn't prepared to provide. Shortcomings in this regard are ignored and blamed on the production / call center team. A good portion of the time, it seems like the sales team is completely detached from what the company is prepared to handle which creates pretty uncomfortable situations with customers. - go through constant cycles of layoffs. Instead of balancing the books, DMI will axe a number of people to put the budget in the green. This happened 3 times in my two years of working there, where upwards of 10+ people get let go. The rest of the work force is expected to pick up the extra work usually, or they will hire temps. - nasty office culture. Sure some of them like to have fun and keep it light hearted, but the fact is that there is overwhelming favoritism and nepotism taking place. If you're the type of person that can keep their head down, shut up, and do your work - you will do fine. They do not like people who express independent opinions that deviate from the norm. They also do not like you reacting to any behavior which you may find inappropriate. In order to move up, you will be expected to be a drone and a yes man for a *long* time before you are considered for a serious position (extra points for you if you have family ties in the company! they love that) Lastly, as I mentioned in my title - this page is full of reviews that scream fake! I urge you to look and see for yourself: They are trying to bury the actual reviews with ones that have one sentence written with things like "great insurance, 5 stars!". It speaks volumes about their their business ethic, trust me.

    Advice to Management

    don't treat your employees like furniture focus on expanding production, client services, training Have a company that creates a culture of trust and teamsmanship - not backstabbing

    I worked at DMI

    Pros

    Glassdoor is telling me I need at least 5 words, so yea

    Cons

    There is little investment nor concern in the retention of employees. If you get terminated without cause, likely the justification is due to restructuring which seemingly is done quarterly if not monthly. Turnover in the company is at an all time high, and the leadership has realized it's too late to fix a problem that could've been resolved years ago. If you went to HR with a problem, it would more than likely not be resolved as the back office has no leadership experience in those fields and stand more with the company than the employee. Nepotism in this the company is its middle name. Work-life balance at this company does not exist as well. You will most likely be working if you are on vacation or out of the office even for a few hours. Not every department is managed poorly, some departments have leadership that actually invests in their employees and provides support when they need it. In relation to those departments, the turnover is very low so more than likely it will be rare to come by a position in that particular department. Trust in an employee is a delicate relationship, and this company does a great job of making sure you can never trust a company again. If you read the positive reviews closely, you can tell that they are written by HR, marketing, or the director of corporate communications. The worst part is that the current employees in the company know how much of a mess DMI is, yet no one in the leadership has tried to salvage best practices to retain employees. If you are offered a job at DMI and you have other choices, PLEASE take the other job. You will more than likely leave DMI within a year.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES. Current employees already know they have no voice and aren't being heard. Give credit to the employees who get the job done at the end of the day, and take accountability for your mistakes (management) and fix your problems. Stop blaming it on the employee because you never provided the direction from the start. Reward the hard-working employees or you will continue to lose your star employees. Stop setting up employees for failure as well. Reorganize the HR Department as they are supposed to be the moral compass of the company as the department is highly unethical.

    Pros

    As in the title, free snacks in the breakroom. There is also a TV and an xBox you can use at the risk of getting fired since that seems to happen a lot. Due to the international presence, you do get the sense of working in a larger organization while having the intimacy of a small company. If you're close to the executives, you have opportunity to grow, attend corporate events, get game/concert tickets to the corporate box, or travel the world for no apparent reason. Otherwise, please be happy that you have a paycheck.

    Cons

    1. Figurehead CEO - won't make a decision without dad's permission. 2. COO a.k.a. the real CEO wants to succeed by hook or by crook. However has a posse of yes-men who can't do anything. If backstabbing was an art - DMI is the top workplaces you can come to and learn from the best. 3. 20 hour workdays followed by taking blame for the above mentioned posse since they were too busy to do their job. 4. Quarterly layoffs based on budget cuts or position eliminations. Yet, the posse remains intact despite not doing much. 5. A culture of pretense - Pretend to be a commercially focused mobile company, pretend the executives are qualified, pretend to have a young/startup culture, pretend to have a culture of performance, pretend to care for the employees. 6. If you are a doer, there are 200 people in the organization to tell you how you're doing everything wrong without actually knowing what they are talking about. Yet if you ask for help to get things done in case you're overwhelmed, you're the one who can't get anything done. This list can go on for days but will not solve any purpose. You can change organizational culture but it is hard to change the basic characteristics of people. There is not much to expect from people who are insensitive, shallow and self-absorbed.

    Advice to Management

    1. Stop asking people to write stupid reviews. At least be smart about it. Who writes "DMI seemed to always lead/drive technology instead of letting technology driving the business." Please step outside your world every once in a while and see how humans communicate with each other. Since you're a "mobility" company - observe for once how people interact. Next time at least make it believable if you can't make an effort to fix things. 2. Treat people with respect. You are 5 people disrespecting 500. Those 500 people don't respect you either. By simple calculations, you're losing more respect than them. 3. You want to cut costs - get rid of dead weight. There is no reason to have people who are well past their prime, taking 20 smoke breaks a day, and acting like they have a role other than making the office smell like an ashtray. 4. You want to take care of customers, hire an operations person who knows what running operations is. 5. Stop pretending you're one of the best places to work. That's not what the buzz in the market is. And there are more people from DMI not working at DMI currently than the ones at DMI who can be convinced to write a phony review. So you're basically lying to yourself.

    Great team that is willing to pay for your experience. DMI seemed to always lead/drive technology instead of letting technology driving the business. Good benefits and great people.

    Cons

    Had no issues with the company. The only minor issue was the lack of communications from corporate level to remote business units, so team was aware of new initiatives.

    Pros

    Lavish and Modern Corporate Office! Snacks and Sodas provided to employees (though not the healthiest of choices, at all), an XBox, and Foosball Table in break rooms! Always updated with the latest technology but have no problem wasting more money on paper movie tickets, paper birthday cards, paper holiday cards thinking it adds a personal touch. CEO is cool and good looking, but typically too busy to come in and is awkward engaging in any contact with his employees. His dad's cooler and is actually the one that runs the company.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment, very shady and under-the-table/backstabbing. A lot of inappropriate and unprofessional behavior purely from Executives. High turnover of some of the most loyal and hardworking employees which also impact the loss of any present or future business and/or clients. Turnover rate also impacts any motivation for the team members left behind. ZERO communication within departments or among other teams involved! There’s no room for growth at DMI and if there is, you’re told of opportunities that just never seem to happen due to "budget cuts". One of the most unethical companies to work for, though, expect you to take a mandatory "ethics training" test and afterward question the company you now work for. Company morale is non-existent especially if you are working on a customer site- "who is Sunny?" is something often heard if you're not working at HQ.

    Advice to Management

    Confidential information is proven to never be confidential when your "leaders" are not leading by example-the executive staff is a JOKE!! Rather, you have Senior Vice Presidents hired in 2014 slandering employees they are threatened by, letting them go, and continuing to exploit and badmouth them to others revealing lies and not facts. DMI is completely insensitive to the concerns of their employees and care only to survive keeping their job. Team effort doesn't exist. Stop barking, pointing fingers and making excuses. Higher-ups are supposed to help you, not hurt you. Lastly, stop asking your loyal sketchy employees to write positive reviews, you're not fooling anyone.

    Pros

    DMI has the all the amenities of a large consulting firm with the small business atmosphere. Smart people who know enterprise mobility, great compensation, training budget, PTO etc.

    Cons

    Upper management restructures every couple of months so it is sometimes difficult to get an understanding on where the company is heading.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to do a better job of including project specific employees on internal initiatives so work is not duplicated. Communication after reorganizing is also key.
