    Recognize people who go the extra mile on a consistent basis and invest in small events in the offices where people can socialize and celebrate successes outside of the office. These simple and inexpensive steps go a long way toward increasing morale.

    Pros

    Would have to say the colleagues that work there. They are informed and very helpful, especially if you are on a team. Also, could work from home.

    Cons

    They have started arbitrarily firing people on the sales team, using made up circumstances, in order to make a place in the company for leaderships "buddies". They treat their employees very poorly, leaving the teams shorthanded and thus forcing you to work overtime just to meet the job requirements. But they won't pay overtime and this has seriously affected the morale of the company. They also have begun to sell services as one thing, but then deliver them as something else, not giving the customer what they are paying for.

    Advice to Management

    DBM needs new management. This current leadership team is driving one of the best companies into the ground. I worked here 13 years and it has never been worse then 2009 and 2010.

    Great leadership with great insight to the industry. Care about their people and the work that they do. Always looking for ways to be better

    Cons

    No real cons. Due to the ups and downs in the economy it can be hard to know how it will impact the business.

    Advice to Management

    Great job. Keep up the great work. you are always seeking ways to makee us better and it makes me proud to work here.
