What is health insurance like at DMI?

Pros

Benefits company offer are good. Health insurance, discounts for travel/purchase/sporting.

Cons

HR team is incompetent dept. and they a tip line but that just pointless. The upper management cares more about money then the employees. They hire incompetent folks and have the under workers carry the weight and pressure more. Pay isn’t always fair and the idea of at will company concept isn’t the best.

Advice to Management

Please re-evaluate the HR Dept as it’s shouldn’t be as messy and unprofessional dept. HR team member really need to be properly train verse pushing employee to misery for trying to seek help. Managers please take on your leadership serious verse overworking employees and give credit where due. Benefits dept another team that needs to understand how to explain verse telling me payroll needs to help when I’m asking about a benefit that isn’t setup correctly. When did payroll dept become benefits or even HR then I get push back to those dept who should of helped me to start with. Each dept needs to understand there role and duties verse pushing an employee from one group to another to then back to the very start.

Health insurance, discounts for travel/purchase/sporting.

Does DMI offer parental leave?

Pros

As one of the team members on one of the 4 or 5 companies DMI acquired back in 2014, the first few years of growth were great. Everyone was seemingly on board across the company with giving everyone the opportunity to grow within the organization, communication was as transparent as it could be in an organization of that size, and we were taking on new clients that we may not have had the opportunity to get otherwise. Depending on the office and division you work for, the experiences will vary and I was one of the lucky ones that got to do cool work, surrounded by dedicated and collaborative teammates, and supportive middle management willing to help me learn and grow. If you like company-sponsored quarterly events, DMI has them with an annual summer picnic, Oktoberfest, Holiday/Awards party where they recognize employee accomplishments every year, and Tech Chef. I didn't work at HQ so I didn't always attend, but it's a nice perk regardless.

Cons

Unfortunately, as DMI continued to grow, that transparent communication got lost in the noise. New management members would get announced without clear explanation as to what their roles were or how it would impact the organization. It seemed like we were only growing at the top and not bringing in team members to do the work. Work/Life balance truly depends on which office you are in and what your job/role is. I hear it was better in some offices than others but at the end of the day, it's an agency and working late is unfortunately the norm at DMI and everywhere. The benefits played a huge role in my decision to depart. The health insurance offered is extremely expensive, and I was only paying for myself and a spouse. It also didn't cover a lot, we were paying a lot out of pocket on top of paying hundreds every month for coverage. There is no paid family leave, which is a benefit offered at all of DMI's competitors both at the local level and national level. PTO is generous and I liked that it is combined sick and personal leave, but you could not roll it over year over year. Ultimately I wanted to continue to learn and grow beyond the position I was in and even though I was getting support at office management level, I felt as though it wasn't able to go any further in the organization. Through thorough research, I also learned I was underpaid for the position and duties I had. Ultimately there wasn't anything I could do here, as right around the time that I was discovering this a significant portion of the staff was laid off and I knew there would be no leg to stand on as far as asking for more money.

Advice to Management

Listen to some of the management of the companies you acquire to continue to improve the organization. During my exit interview, I was told that the attitude of management is to tell these new DMI employees that "your company was bought, so your former policies and procedures need to conform to DMI's" which is such a toxic attitude. None of those employees signed on to be DMI employees. And there could be a lot of opportunities to improve the company or be more innovative if instead of just forcing everyone to adapt, everyone adapted together.

How are the career development opportunities at DMI?

Pros

Work-life balance and some of the people.

Cons

Senior leadership is horrible, which unfortunately ruins even working for the few good lower level managers. They only look out for themselves and don't care about the company or the work being done. They allow sloppy work to be produced and created a culture where complainers and non-team players win over the hard workers. The few good people still trying to make a difference get treated the worst. They make zero data-driven decisions, even though they claim they are experts in that field. Then again, the company doesn't even know what they are trying to be experts in. The CEO is nice, but so far removed from everything that he doesn't have a pulse on what is really happening. No one cares about your career progression or future goals. Don't waste your time, any effort here will go under-appreciated and underutilized.
