I’ve been at DMi Partners for over 4 years, and it is hands down the best work environment that I’ve ever experienced. I come from an ad agency background, and I’m used to a loose , lively and comfortable work environment, so nothing has changed on that front. However, it’s the first agency I’ve been at where morale was high across the board. Sure, every job can be frustrating at times, but you don’t ever hear anyone complaining about typical agency gripes like compensation, being over worked, impossible deadlines, etc. Everyone feels appreciated. I’ve been at places where you just churned out work at a rapid pace like a robot and if you left by 7 you felt like you were getting out early. Everyone was miserable there. At DMi, staying until 7:00 is a rare occurrence and it’s not out of the norm for the office to be empty by 5:45, yet we still get a ton of work done and always hit our deadlines. We have a great team here and having good people really does make all the difference. Everyone is always in a good mood and happy to come to work, and that passion carries over to their effort and dedication. When you see other people trying hard – not because they have to, but because they want to – it becomes contagious, and that shows in the end product. We’re not micro-managed, and are given every opportunity to grow professionally. No one is held back or left behind. Instead, we’re all encouraged to continue developing our skills in any way that we desire (obviously within reason, I don’t think they’d be thrilled if I put all of my personal development time into bee keeping). It’s also great to be in a place where no one is above any task. Titles go out the window when something needs to get done and it’s truly an all hands on deck mentality.The benefits are the best I’ve ever seen, from the infamous free lunch Friday and a company paid cell phone plan, to $5 gym memberships and a 100% 401k match of up to 6% of our salary!DMi really goes out of their way to ensure their employees are happy, and it’s clearly working, as this is the happiest I’ve ever been at a job. In fact, I almost feel guilty calling it a job.
