    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at DMI

    Pros

    As in the title, free snacks in the breakroom. There is also a TV and an xBox you can use at the risk of getting fired since that seems to happen a lot. Due to the international presence, you do get the sense of working in a larger organization while having the intimacy of a small company. If you're close to the executives, you have opportunity to grow, attend corporate events, get game/concert tickets to the corporate box, or travel the world for no apparent reason. Otherwise, please be happy that you have a paycheck.

    Cons

    1. Figurehead CEO - won't make a decision without dad's permission. 2. COO a.k.a. the real CEO wants to succeed by hook or by crook. However has a posse of yes-men who can't do anything. If backstabbing was an art - DMI is the top workplaces you can come to and learn from the best. 3. 20 hour workdays followed by taking blame for the above mentioned posse since they were too busy to do their job. 4. Quarterly layoffs based on budget cuts or position eliminations. Yet, the posse remains intact despite not doing much. 5. A culture of pretense - Pretend to be a commercially focused mobile company, pretend the executives are qualified, pretend to have a young/startup culture, pretend to have a culture of performance, pretend to care for the employees. 6. If you are a doer, there are 200 people in the organization to tell you how you're doing everything wrong without actually knowing what they are talking about. Yet if you ask for help to get things done in case you're overwhelmed, you're the one who can't get anything done. This list can go on for days but will not solve any purpose. You can change organizational culture but it is hard to change the basic characteristics of people. There is not much to expect from people who are insensitive, shallow and self-absorbed.

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

    Pros

    Good team of people that are highly knowledgeable about what they do. Lots of opportunities for certain people.

    Cons

    Company is getting bigger and there is more and more disconnect between upper management and the people with their feet on the ground. Some people get stuck in roles or projects because they don’t have the same visibility as others.
