    I have been working at Digital Management full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've been a System Administrator with DMI for over 4 years and it's been a positive experience. They seem to genuinely care about the welfare of their employees and have good training benefits.

    Cons

    None that I can think of at the moment.

    I worked at Digital Management full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    free soda and sugary snacks, occasional potluck.

    office culture is "great", especially when you get to work remotely and not come in.

    The CEO owns a Tilted Kilt - I guess that's a pro, right?

    Good place if you're looking for a stepping stone to leave and get something better (don't stay for long).

    Cons

    - management keeps changing due to "restructuring" which seems to happen more than once a quarter

    - they're pretty lost when it comes to selling their services on the market

    - DMI will bid at the lowest possible price just to get a contract, which later results in cuts and layoffs because they're unable to match the cost of production

    - very dishonest working place: there is nothing wrong with a company hitting a speed bump, but it takes on a different mantle when you have a company meeting to pat each other on the back and tell everyone how many millions we're about to make (when this couldn't be further from the truth). In short, the sales and management team are incompetent and are deathly afraid of being honest with themselves.

    - I mentioned this briefly above, but during my 3 years with the company I've seen probably 4 waves of substantial layoffs. By the time I left, all that was left was a bare bones team.

    - DMI is unprepared to fulfill services they promise. The sales team offers solutions that the production team is unfamiliar with or has never done - this results in a hasty fire drill every time, because the expectations are not well communicated. They've lost multiple large clients due to this.

    Advice to Management

    - start being honest. First with yourselves, then to your employees, then to your customers

    - there are surely a few actually talented people who work for you, make sure you compensate them fairly or else they'll jump ship too

    - learn how to bid on contracts, do so with the benefit of your employees in mind, not just closing the deal

    - stop the backstabbing

    - it's pretty obvious that someone at the DMI office is spamming this page with fake reviews. Seems desperate. Perhaps spending the same amount of energy on actual work culture could yield better results.

    I have been working at Digital Management full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you're looking to climb high in IT, this should be your stop.... Excellent staffs at HQ and my team at State side. Great management.

    Cons

    Most of the jobs require security clearance hence if you don't have one getting in is going to be a little rough but once you're in..... the sky is just the beginning.... watch out for the galaxies.

    Advice to Management

    Don't tax bonuses, get more non security clearance contracts and international contracts for staffs who which to change locations after a while.

    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.

    Pros

    Salary, great program management team

    Cons

    They do not protect employees' time off during Snow Days or Presidential Holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a place to work if the government shuts their doors to contracted employees or give time off from their overhead.

    I worked at Digital Management full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Provides lots of employee professional development and career path. Salary and benefits are very competitive. Like to get feedback from employees. Does seem like management tries to do things "right".

    Cons

    Not all managers are good managers. Luck of the draw i guess. Sometimes hiring too fast and not vetting candidates properly for both soft and hard skills.

    Advice to Management

    Keep improving.
