    Pros

    Good benefits, nice office space, smart coworkers, and great work-life balance.

    Need to stay many years before seeing promotions or meaningful salary raises.

    Advice to Management

    If you are slow to reward smart, hard-working, young employees, they will begin to look for jobs elsewhere

    Pros

    The many breaks they had are awesome, some of the co-workers are friendly. The on-site assignments are challenging and engaging. Parking is vast and entering the facility is no problem as long as you got your badge handy.

    Cons

    Temp agency I sign up with tend to be rude and unprofessional at time. Supervisor tend to pick favors, lunch lady is not friendly, a lot of the other co-workers doesn't know the meaning of teamwork which means they usually don't help you if you fall behind on work unless it affect them. Work station tend to have lots of issues, either machine tend to breaks down ever few hours, printer not working, loader not loading, forklift worker failed to pick-up ready to ship orders which cause major space shortage in the warehouse area. Also too many hidden assembly instruction that were either not updated in the work instruction or were updated but failed to point out to the co-workers thus causing major product slowdown or rework.

    Advice to Management

    Please know to update your work instruction if new steps are added and be sure to let all co-workers be aware of those. If a co-worker point out major work slowdown issues due to work station defects or problems, do pay attention and work to find a solution to fix that asap. Don't force co-workers to work using defective work station as those will cause quality issue and add more hiccups to rework.

    Pros

    "Workers" want to get the customer taken care of and product out the door. Team atmosphere in that respect.

    Great products and technology.

    Cons

    HR is the worst I have witnessed of all the business units I have been associated with.

    Product line move was not well planned.

    Most Directors and VPs are more concerned about checking off boxes than improving the actual process. Is the process really the issue??

    There is a cost for quality and DMC is seeing this negatively through the volume of RMAs. It can't always be about the lowest cost suppliers.

    Constant battle between manufacturing and sales, due to missed deliveries.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the HR personnel with individuals that are not concerned about petty issues.

    Hold employees that are not performing accountable and recognize those employees that are performing.

    Spend a little more for quality parts.
