    Current Employee - Tech Sales Support
    Current Employee - Tech Sales Support

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

    Pros

    As soon as i spoke with Diane in HR I knew it was going to be a great place to work. The hiring process was great and everyone I spoke with throughout the process was very welcoming. I'm excited to start my career here at DMP.

    Cons

    No cons at this point

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

    Pros

    Recent infusion of Cash from a corporate investment firm should improve the company

    Interesting Niche market

    Smart Colleagues

    Cons

    meh Benefits, 401k subpar, Company does not recognize California Sick Days, so you have to use PTO

    pay is market or slightly below for CA

    working from home allowed with approval, but generally an unspoken rule that its frowned on

    Some upper level management is mislead and will throw team members under the bus at their desire. Unaccountable and will strike down other projects from team members to promote their own projects and self interest.

    Lack of career development and/or promotion path (Hopefully this changes with new investors involved)

    Annual performance review lacking

    No annual bonus plan

    Advice to Management

    bring in a 3rd party to do a Management review/audit to get some unbiased opinions on operations and actions of Upper and Middle Management positions

    Pros

    DMP is strong on culture and team work. The majority of the people have been on board for years. Management is very open minded, and HR has your back. It's not often that the CEO or other C level executives join routine calls or offer to help, but the do at DMP. Company is in a growth mode so the upside regarding growth and future opportunities are endless.

    Cons

    Small issues that aren't worth talking about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the interaction and open dialogue with staff. Much appreciated!

    Pros

    Very friendly work environment. Flexible work schedule. Executives like to share information with every employee and care about people which makes me feel like this company is a big family.
    There is a lot to learn and space to develop yourself here. I've been here for one year. Supervisors acknowledge my effort at work and gave me a promotion recently. I am happy with all the opportunities I can have at DMP!

    Cons

    Need some more healthier snacks instead of chocolate...

    Advice to Management

    DMP is a fast growing company. We need to work together to create some more standard process.

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

    Pros

    It's been 4 weeks - yes it's early - but we learn a lot early about a new company when the shift from "interview candidate" to "new employee" happens. As we start to meet the team, from top to bottom and begin engaging with the immediate tasks and priorities, there's a second impression. And with Digital Map Products, that second impression has been excellent. In my first few weeks, I met with over 35 employees via introductory meetings across every department. The people I met, the engagement I witnessed and the talent level made me feel great about the decision I made to join the company.

    Cons

    The layout of the company's office space is different than what I'm used to (vs. an open environment) so it requires a more thoughtful movement around the office to find and engage with team members. But I think that's actually a positive - employees have the privacy they need to work effectively and without too much interruption.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to appreciate the people working for and with you. Remain engaged in their success and allow them to grow into their roles.

    I have been working at Digital Map Products (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    DMP really allocates time to true research and development, constantly looking at ways to improve the user experience and and push the envelope on performance. Particularly if you are challenged by tough problems and want to work to with some of the latest technology out there, this is a great place to work:
     - advanced Javascript, React + Redux
     - Node.js
     - MongoDB / MySQL / SQLServer
     - Microservices ( Docker containers + Service Fabric + Kubernetes)
     - Advanced Spatial technology (Preference Stack, Streaming Feature Layers, Analysis Engine)

    Pays to Market
    Work Life Balance
    Great group of smart folks, that really get on well together
    Fun Committee - group of employees that organize company sponsored fun events

    Cons

    Still a small company, (50 to 100?) have been growing fast recently and can be somewhat disorganized at times. Still need to get some processes down.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to formalize processes, including employee onboarding, and have clearer roles and responsibilities.
