Not a smart choice at the moment
The company is restructuring and it is a very volatile environment. Jobs are being cut and eliminated. This used to be an amazing environment before the takeover.

It was good
Working at this gave me a permanent job which helped me to balance my life financially. It could have been good if I had a salary increase for my experience

Dying Company with a poor culture
DCM is in a dying industry with a complete lack of will to adapt. Senior management is bleeding the company dry and laying people off at a whim despite not addressing the real issues. I would not recommend working here as they expect you to work 80 hour work weeks with no extra compensation.

Was a good company to work for initially
I enjoyed my time with DCM but the direction they are moving results in extremely talented staff are let go. I managed to gain a lot of work experience in my profession and made numerous friends during my time

very stressful learning curves in this company
holidays and weekends off is great, holidays are good, wages are ok but a secret causing tension with employees, there is a very strong culture clash some cultures don't want to train other cultures. They buy out people who have served for over 30 yrs and keep people with only 3 months no job security. Top rate is hard to reach. Fast-paced

Challenging Environment to work in. Culture is not what is once was. We are over worked and there is no benefits or extra help given. Guidance and help from management is lacking.

Horrible place
Horrible place to work in. Horrible bosses and horrible upper management. They only care what's coming into their pockets , they put people in charge who have no idea how things are supposed to function. Never around for assistance or support. They leave their employees drowning in work never asking how it's going.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Everything

Great place to work
Learned Security printing and Business Form production. Training was provided to hone these specific skills. I very much enjoyed working here. Shortage of work led to multiple production employee layoffs.

Always stressed. Like walking on nails
The IT Director commented out loud that 'everyone at Data Comm was either 85 or dead'. Then there is the Project Lead, who knows nothing about 'best practices', but pretend to. Not to mention the Politics, all the VPs hated each other, smile and stab.
Pros
Fridge to keep lunch cool
Cons
Literally, the opposite of heaven.

A Pretty Unprofessional Company
In my experience at the company, I was taken advantage of. The coworkers are nice to your face but talk poorly to management about any little thing they can just to make you look bad and to make themselves look good. They say ask questions a lot, but when you do you get in trouble. Extremely stressful. Management would make promises of training but wouldn’t come though on any of it. In this company if you are a good employee that stays quiet and doesn’t cause trouble you will get fired, because someone else is talking behind your back trying to make you look bad. That is the only thing I can not say bad about the management, because if they only ever hear one side of any story, they will go with what they hear. I had high hopes going into the company just to be disappointed. The company is poorly organized and poorly run.
Pros
They have a free Gym, and good parking
Cons
Poorly Managed, Cut Throat Environment, Not Organized at all

For the size, a strong company
the culture is a happy culture at Data. People are not stressed as much since the roles and responsibilities are well defined. Bottomless coffee cups for free is a big hit in this company. Work is done in a family oriented concept where people are familiar with one another.. The CEO is a very pleasant and engaging individual and so are the other senior management team. their pleasant demeanor is contagious. You can't help but smile on a daily basis.
Pros
Free coffee, very pleasant work environment. Very supportive management.
Cons
Can't think of one.

A good place to learn
Like the title says, I learned alot at DATA. My professional skills matured year after year. The culture at DATA needs to change, there is little to no honest communication between management and executives down to their employees. Departmental divide is huge is this company, and with everyone not in the loop, the attitude is usually 'pass the buck'. Overall, the employee base is exceptionally friendly and professional, if only execs could understand retention is important.
Pros
decent benefits
Cons
just a number
