DMC Cares Guerrilla Giving Initiative

A few times a year, DMC holds an All Day Company Meeting (ADCM) in each of our offices.

Our past ADCMs have provided us unique experiences like ziplining in Wisconsin, ice skating, and even a Ferris Bueller-style day in Chicago. This ADCM focused on a few different topics. The day started with small group discussions on our core values and customer service fundame...

DMC Chicago 2016 Golf Outing

DMC Chicago is back on the links! Using DMC's Activity Fund, nine DMCers hit the course after work in hopes of finding some lost birdies and maybe even an eagle. The weather leading up to the event was dire, with all weather services reporting a 70 percent chance of thunderstorms for each hour we were scheduled to be on the course. We were hopeful as we trekked about 30 minutes from the office to the beautiful Sydney Marovitz Golf Course along Lake Michigan. Wou...

The New and Improved DMC Coffee System

The New and Improved DMC Coffee System

At DMC's Chicago office, coffee is an extremely important part of everyone’s day. We've been using a Keurig K-Cup system to make decent coffee. Although they are easy and convenient, K-Cups have a high per-cup cost when compared to just buying coffee beans and they create a lot of plastic waste. Our old Bunn Drip Coffee Brewer does make a lot of coffee, and it is easy to control the strength of the coffee. On the down side, the coffee is brewed at a very low, inconsistent temper...

Android users with VR headsets (such as Google Cardboard) can even view the video i...
