    Former Employee - Mechanical Engineer 

    I worked at Diversified Conveyors full-time

    Pros

    DCI offers a competitive salary for enginners, plus bonuses

    Cons

    DCI makes a point of being a “Christian” company, so your religion will come up during the hiring process and you will be expected to participate in religious observances regularly during your work. In spite of that, they have a history of laying off employees with no warning, no severance, and no transition period. You could be looking for a job at any time. If you’re not an engineer, DCI takes advantage of state programs to pay sub-minimum wage.

    "Actively Improving"

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Diversified Conveyors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    DCI is steadily improving from where it was -The benefits have been getting leaps and bounds better (401k match added, health insurance with funded FSA, etc.) -Training processes are being developed to properly onboard new employees, and train up existing employees. -The work coming into the company is being better paced to allow a work/life balance, and provide time for professional development. -More time is being put into developing the back-end tools in order to correct errors and make them more usable. -For those that excel, compensation increases are generous. -For those interested in developing and growing, once interest is expressed, DCI takes developing those interests seriously. -Good vacation package: starting with 2 weeks vacation and 1 week PTO

    Cons

    -DCI is still not investing enough in the back-end infrastructure to properly automate the sections that are currently broken/actively providing incorrect outputs. -The training is not currently at a level for company-wide roll-out. -There is still a disconnect between the Memphis office and the field locations. -Communication is still an issue. -The Memphis location is in a high-crime neighborhood near the airport, in an old building with iffy heating/cooling.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Diversified Conveyors full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    After a year of working in the company you are given $25 a month to give to the charity of your choice in an app and they will match personal donations. The benefits are good if you don't have a family.

    Cons

    This company will use you and lead you on with false promises. They claim to be a Christian-based company but don't act like it in the slightest. If there's one thing you hear about this company, it's most likely the lack of communication. The home office and the field are incredibly disconnected. There are constant problems when it comes to engineering and the projects fall behind schedule and create a very stressful environment to work in. There is very little training and you're left to figure everything out on your own. The sites and especially the home office are identical to all of your worst memories of high school. If you're not in the cool kids crowd you're targeted and the amount of gossip and rumors is ridiculous for grown adults. It does not matter how hard you work or how dedicated you are, you will not be appreciated. Based on the current state, I truly do not believe they will be around for too much longer.

    "A growing company that is human at heart and as an organisation working on systems in place to handle growth"

    Current Employee - Engineer Level II in Memphis, TN

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Diversified Conveyors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A culture of approachability, open door mindset from management and human nature of the workspace, you have a chance to know who you are working with and working for easily, creating a space for you to know your professional character in contrast giving you a lot of learning potentials and growth tracks. For new graduates and professional engineers, the culture in DCI is intense not just in its contrast to school but at the pace of work however this prepares them better to handle challenges and builds a lot of professional character, setting one up for a strong engineering career, this comes at a cost which I will mention in the cons. The team of engineers in DCI is very talented and knowledgeable, their expertise and desire to train new guys holds a lot of promise for new recruits.

    Cons

    Insufficient training and documentation of processes often lead to people to feel less equipped to handle the challenges of a rapidly growing company. One of the key challenges is communication across different departments, the high rate of growth in the size of the company has caused silos in the different departments, a lot is lost in translation and improper communication. The company has had a lot of moving pieces due to the nature of the (much deserved) quick expansion in size and workload. Appraisals/reviews are very dependant on the supervisor and immediate senior management and whether they find value in you, having a template and increased transparency could help with the process.
