Northwestern vs Notre Dame Football Game Tailgate

DMC is always growing and has alumni from schools around the US and world including many alumni from both Notre Dame and Northwestern University.

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...

Cocktail Making & Starting at DMC

Cocktail Making & Starting at DMC

One of the many perks of joining DMC is that whenever new employees come onboard, welcome parties are planned to celebrate the occasion. David Wylen and I chose to have our welcome party be a cocktail making class at the Chicago Distilling Company. The event proved to be more informative than expected, but as much fun as we hoped. It then dawned on me, with the help of a Russian mule, that the process of making a cocktail is an excellent analogy to the process I underwent when I joined DMC. P...

DMC Chicago YOE: Fun By Land, By Air, & By Water

This year, the DMC Chicago office decided to keep things local and hosted our third annual Yearly Office Event (YOE) right here in the Windy City.

Bowlin' to Dodgeballin': DMC Chicago 2018 Sports Leagues

Who doesn't love a little friendly competition with coworkers? DMCers have participated in a variety of sports leagues over the years, from beach volleyball in Chicago to kickball in NYC.

An Intern's Guide to Surviving a DMC Summer

Three months ago, I got a call while walking home from class in the last few weeks of the Spring semester. Immediately upon seeing the Chicago area code, I knew that this was the moment I had been waiting for—the decision from DMC for a marketing internship that coming summer! I was so excited to hear Jessica, my new boss, on the other end of the line congratulating me for getting the job. I called my parents to tell them the good news, "I’m moving to Chicago! I got the posit...

DMC's Internal Operations Team Sets Sail

"If this boat sinks, the company would be *in real trouble." This was the starting remark as DMC's Internal Operations team left Belmont Harbor on President & CEO Frank Riordan's boat. Every summer, employees are invited to take part in one of Frank's favorite hobbies. Boating on Lake Michigan is a wonderful time for us to enjoy each other's company and recognize the work we do throughout the year. On Wednesday, July 18, DMC's Chicago-based ...

Employees Lead Company Improvements During FedEx Day 2018

DMC recently took a break from day-to-day tasks to participate in one of our favorite company traditions, FedEx Day. Routine work on hold, our offices still brimmed with life and projects while everyone worked on whatever they wanted.  FedEx Day is always an opportunity for fun, learning, and collaboration, with only two catches: the project must in some way help to improve the company, and it must be deliverable by the end of the day. This year, our employees took on everything ...

DMC Does Goat Yoga

This month, several DMC Chicago team members were lucky enough to participate in Goat Yoga as a team building activity at the Garfield Park Conservatory. Goat yoga is the latest yoga trend where baby goats run around the participants, climb on their backs, and make everyone smile during the class. We had three new employees attend this event, Justine (Accounting), Anna (Marketing), and myself (Marketing). This was an excellent way to introduce ourselves to some of our...

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 to update the company on what's new. If you browse through our YouTube channel, you'll 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 o...
