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...

FedEx Day 2016

This May marked the 6th annual FedEx Day! All five of our offices participated in this year’s event. This special day allows our employees to dedicate an entire day to a project of their choosing that they normally would not have time for. This year, projects ranged from planting a garden on the Chicago office’s rooftop patio to making many different types of applications. Preparation for FedEx Day takes a lot of time. Each employee brainstorms what they want to do and gathers the...

Houston YOE 2016: Everything is Bigger in Texas

This spring, DMC held our first Yearly Office Event (YOE) in Houston. This was a great way for the Houston office to show employees from other offices a good time down south.

DMSki 2016: Our Biggest Ski Trip Yet

Since 2011, we have made it a tradition to take an annual ski trip out west to Colorado. This year, since the trip was so popular, we have decided to introduce the ski trip as our first Yearly Office Event (YOE). The YOE grew out of DMSki, which attracts employees from across our offices. It's a great opportunity to bond and promote OneDMC, so we decided to create a similar yearly event in each of our locations. We had a great time on our 2016 DMSki trip. Day 1: After landing in sunny ...

DMC Chicago Virtual Office Tour

In January of 2016, Google released an Android app called Cardboard Camera, which can turn a single smartphone camera into an impressive 3D panoramic image-making machine. Using this tutorial, we learned how to convert those images into a 360 view YouTube video, which allows us to create a 360-degree, interactive panorama that can be viewed across a multitude of platforms, operating systems, and browsers. Android users with VR headsets (such as Google Cardboard) can even view the video i...

OneDMC: Where Bigger Meets Better

OneDMC: Where Bigger Meets Better

In 2015, DMC opened new offices in Houston, Texas, and New York City, expanding our team from three to five locations. Also in 2015, we paid two random people to write and perform rap songs about us. These seemingly unrelated events have an important common thread: OneDMC. So what does "OneDMC" mean? The term originates from first-time visitors to our offices, who love to ask us if we have any relation to the rap group Run DMC. The idea has really grown on us, though, so the term...

Chicago's Wild Holiday Party at the Zoo

DMC's holiday parties have taken us everywhere from the 94th floor of the John Hancock Center to a former prison. This year, the Chicago office decided to go wild at the Lincoln Park Zoo.  After an onsite smell-test, we selected the zoo's Regenstein Small Mammal-Reptile House. The 32,000-square-foot building holds around 200 small mammals, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates, and birds. Cocktails in the Ecosystem The Regenstein offered the benefit of enjoying two diffe...

DMC's Holiday Cheer Extravaganza 2015

For the past few years, as another holiday season passes, I have observed that each holiday felt less and less like I remember. This year, the source of my waning holiday spirit finally dawned on me: I'm an adult now. I was determined to restore the festive spirit. On November 31st, I stayed at work until 8pm adorning my space with ornaments, lights and shiny silver garlands. I sprinted headfirst into December with a dazzling display of wintery cheer. Within a week or so, string lights, t...

DMC Bubble Soccer Activity Fund Event

Just before the leaves began to turn this year, DMC's Chicago office decided to take advantage of the end of our good weather and head to Lincoln Park for some fun in big, bumpable bubbles. If you've never heard of bubble soccer, it entails climbing into massive, inflated plastic bubbles that make sports infinitely more fun (and challenging!) The bubble soccer company had a slight misunderstanding and ended up going to the wrong place in Lincoln Park, which resulted in 12 people from DMC...

DMC Welcome Party at Adler After Dark

For my welcome party to DMC, we went to the Halloween edition of Adler After Dark at the Adler Planetarium. We hung out at the office for pizza, beer, and general hanging out before heading over to the museum. I had never been to the Planetarium before, so I was really excited to see what they had to offer. Once we arrived, we made our way to Café Galileo's glass pavilion where we enjoyed various beverages in front of a spectacular view of the Chicago skyline. The "Dark Matter" ...
