DMC Chicago Managers Go Undercover

DMC Chicago Managers Go Undercover

Shakespeare said it, "All the world is a stage," but I never thought that I would find such talent and love for performing at an engineering company. Every month one of our DMC offices creates a video as a way to update the company on what's new. If you browse through our youtube channel, you will find an array of videos ranging from a satirical DMC Commercial created by our Boston office to a SCADA Boi music video from our Houston office. These videos are presented at our ...

Discover Secret Chicago with a New Book by DMC's Jessica Mlinaric

Our motto at DMC is "Smart People. Expert Solutions." so we demand a lot of our team. However, part of being one of the best places to work is employees having the ability to pursue other interests in their free time. DMC team members have a wide range of interests outside of work including playing in bands, climbing all the mountain peaks in the US, and conquering triathlons. DMC's Marketing Manager, Jessica Mlinaric, has helped the company grow since j...

Houston Rockets Basketball Welcome Party

Houston Rockets Basketball Welcome Party

One of the best things about your first few weeks working at DMC is that you get to host a welcome party of your choice! As an avid fan of basketball, I chose to go to a Houston Rocket’s game and took the Houston office with me. After a catered dinner at the office, we carpooled over to the stadium. I will watch almost any basketball game alone and enjoy myself, but being at the game with the DMC Houston team made it even more fun. It allowed us to hang out and bond outside the office, ...

DMC Engineers Serve up a Siemens S7 Powered DrinkBot

Working together for over a year, a group of DMC engineers built our very own DrinkBot. We developed it during a FedEx Day and improved the DrinkBot over a second FedEx Day. DMC's DrinkBot finally made its debut at the Siemens Automation Summit 2017. As happens in the development process, we slowly improved the DrinkBot over time. We started displaying it at career fairs in Colorado to help grow the team. We also took it to events in New York, Houston, Seattle, and Manufacturing...

SoulCycle Takes DMC Chicago for a Ride

SoulCycle Takes DMC Chicago for a Ride

Before the weather in Chicago becomes nice enough to do things outdoors again, DMC decided to use part of our March activity fund budget to attend a SoulCycle class. The activity fund is a monthly budget in each DMC office to plan social events. For those who may not know, SoulCycle is an intense 45-minute indoor cycling class where you ride your bike to the beat of the music. For some (read: one) of our engineers, SoulCycle is more than just an exercise class, it’s a way of life. This ...

Take Me to Your Leader: A Planetarium Welcome Party
Whitney Wright

Take Me to Your Leader: A Planetarium Welcome Party

It was a cold January night when I donned a silver, Pringle-shaped skirt, a black unitard, swiped on some purple lipstick, and stashed a plastic gun in my waistband. It was all for a work event. Where in this galaxy could I possibly be going that required a toy gun and purple lipstick? Well, it was for my first outing since starting at DMC, of course. It was time for my Welcome Party at Chicago's Adler Planetarium! Each new employee at DMC is welcomed with a party of their...

DMC Denver Experiences the Avalanche

DMC Denver Experiences the Avalanche

Don’t worry. When I say Avalanche, I mean the Colorado Avalanche hockey team, not a snow slide. Our hockey team took on the Winnipeg Jets, and the game was spectacular. A group of us attended together using DMC Denver's activity fund, a monthly fund that employees can access to plan fun events to hang out and bond.  After a slow start to the game, Colorado scored two goals in the 2nd period only to have Winnipeg tie up the game in the 3rd period and send the game to overtime. ...

DMC New York and the Mysterious Ticking Noise

Every month, a DMC office makes their own video to share updates with everyone at DMC. In January, DMC New York took our turn.  We filled everyone in on all of the fun we've been having at events like our Yearly Office Event, DMC New York YOE - Eating Our Way Through NYC, and we told everyone all about how we are bursting at the seams with new hires.  Meet our roster of New York office engineers in this fun video, and see if we can find out the source of the mysterious t...

DMC Goes Glam at the Last Speakeasy

DMCers in Chicago recently celebrated the 84th anniversary of the repeal of prohibition in style at the Chicago History Museum's annual Last Speakeasy. In what has become a DMC tradition, we donned our flapper dresses and fedoras and bundled up as best we could to take a step back in time for a few hours.  The museum pulls out all the stops, filling up every available space with entertainment, food, and intriguing exhibits. There was a visit from John Russick, CHM'...

Hawaiian Shirt Fridays

Hawaiian Shirt Fridays

I bought my first Hawaiian shirt (which is still in my rotation) in Orange Beach, Alabama during spring break of 2001. Since then, Hawaiian Shirt Friday has become a personal tradition of mine lasting the last dozen or so years. At my two previous jobs, it remained a personal tradition, and there was never any doubt in my mind that I would continue my tradition at DMC. However, while it took a while to start catching on, here at DMC it’s become more than just a personal tradition, and t...

DMC East Coast Offices Bond in Historic Boston

DMC's New York and Boston offices recently met up for a combined All Day Company Meeting (or ADCM).

We've tried out WhirlyBall, gone ice skating, and even taken a day off like Ferris Bueller to explore Chicago. We wanted to extend this Ferris Bueller experience to our other offices, starting...
