DMC Time Travels to the Last Speakeasy

The year was 1933. The men sported their suspenders and fedoras, and the women dressed in their fancy flapper attire. It was also the official ending of the very unpopular Prohibition era, and everyone was celebrating and imbibing whatever they could get their hands on.   The Last Speakeasy Every year on the anniversary of the repeal of prohibition, the Chicago History Museum hosts the Last Speakeasy where attendees partake in an evening filled with dancing, (fake) gambling...

DMC's All Day Company Meetings 2018

One of DMC's annual traditions is having an off-site All Day Company Meeting (ADCM) where everyone takes the day off project work to learn, share knowledge, team-build, and spend time together outside of the office. Our ADCMs have taken us everywhere from ice skating in Chicago to roaming historic Boston. These company meetings are a chance for our offices to combine forces as well. This year, Chicago and St. Louis combined for their ADCM as did our offices on the West Coast. Our All Day ...

DMC Takes Hamilton: Lights, Camera, Engineers

DMC Takes Hamilton: Lights, Camera, Engineers

To say that this was not what I expected when I signed on as a Systems Engineer at DMC is a correct statement. One month into my job, 50 of us were going to see Hamilton (yes...that Hamilton) on the company’s dime. Not only that, but everyone was at the show to welcome four other employees and myself to the company. The Hamilton Welcome Party was just the latest in a slew of company-sponsored welcome parties. Each new employee gets a welcome party. It's an excellent way to connect w...

Unbelievable, Inconceivable, Mind Boggling Action at WWE SmackDown Live!

The DMC activity fund is a long-standing tradition DMC created to support employee planned events so that we can all hang out with each other while we aren't working and have some fun. We've done everything from skydiving in Reno to deep sea fishing in Houston. But, where were we on November 13, 2018? I’m sure you remember where you were. How can you forget? The St. Louis office knows. The St. Louis office will certainly never forget. Witnessing History That was the n...

DMC Gets CPR & First Aid Training

DMC uses our own internal suggestion box as one of the many avenues to answer these two "WWTBTSCD" questions: What would the best technical solutions company to work WITH do? What would the best technical solutions company to work FOR do? We receive a pretty large range of suggestions varying from requesting more gear in the gym to improving project staffing. DMC genuinely cares about what employees think, and we take every suggestion under consideration. We recently r...

Shoreline Sightseeing: A Navy Pier Welcome Party

Starting at DMC As I started working at DMC, I was immediately amazed by the company culture.

Moving to Chicago As a new member of the Chicago community, I figured I have to explore the area and familiarize myself with my new surroundings. There is so much to see a...

Defying Gravity and Going Skydiving in Reno

Defying Gravity and Going Skydiving in Reno

Like every child growing up, I admired airplanes soaring through the sky. They seemed not only majestic but proof of man’s infallible ingenuity and perseverance. The Wright Brothers showed the world we simply had to push the limits with an incredible feat of engineering and determination. I had the same gut reaction anyone else would have: “Man, it’d be fun to jump out of one of those and hurtle towards the ground at 125 miles per hour!”  From Slack to the Skies ...
