The Lord of the Rings Meets the Chicago Symphony Orchestra

The Lord of the Rings Meets the Chicago Symphony Orchestra

At DMC we pride ourselves on our geeky interests and obsessions. So, when someone mentioned in a weekly company status meeting that the Chicago Symphony Orchestra was going to be at Ravinia Theater to play the soundtrack of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King in time with the movie, we had no dearth of interested employees. With twenty-two committed attendees, we eagerly anticipated the Friday night extravaganza, ordering a spread of sandwiches, wraps and hummus from Mariano’s...

DMC Gets in Gear for Company Bike Ride

Lately at DMC, we’ve been on a mission to be a healthier, less-stressed company. With weekly yoga, stretching and meditation classes as well as de-stress walks, we’re well on our way. So, when Ken Brey suggested a company bike ride along the Lake Shore path, we had more than one reason to acquiesce. In addition to mental health, here at DMC we enjoy a challenge above all else. Our bike ride totaled 20 miles, starting at our Chicago office on Elston Avenue and riding south towar...

DMC Ranks #5 in Chicago Bike to Work Week Challenge

Last week DMC joined close to a thousand other Chicagoland companies and organizations to participate in the Bike Commuter Challenge. This is my sixth year participating in Bike to Work Week in Chicago, but my first at DMC. I was excited to share my lively enthusiasm for bike commuting with my coworkers. We normally have a handful of devoted bikers commuting to work, so this was a great opportunity to encourage new riders to get out on the road. Sure, there are risks to bicycling, but ther...

DMC Chicago Welcomes its Newest Engineer

DMC Chicago Welcomes its Newest Engineer

This is only my second month at DMC, and so far everything is going great. I’ve had the opportunity to work for a couple of exceptional companies prior to DMC, and so my expectations of what a great job ought to be were already pretty high. DMC, though, has exceeded all my expectations. Everyone at DMC did a lot of little things to make me feel welcome and to help me hit the ground running. I got to the office on Day One and everything was ready to go; even my business cards were alr...

The DMC Portal: Connecting Chicago and Boston

The DMC Portal: Connecting Chicago and Boston

For my FedEx Day project, I worked from DMC Boston on the DMC Portal (a name-in-progress). The DMC Portal is a system of two stations – one in DMC Chicago, the other in DMC Boston – with a computer, television, and webcam apiece. These are connected via internet, and each shows the other’s kitchen, allowing the two offices to interact on a more informal basis and maintain some continuity in that way. Currently, each is running Skype, with the ability to create a connectio...

DMC Cooks Up Communication at Our All Day Company Meeting

For our recent All Day Company Meeting (ADCM), DMC headed over to Cooking Fools in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood. It's fun day of formulating goals, brainstorming, and teambuilding that has taken us to places like Wrigley Field, laser tag, and on a Ferris Bueller-style tour of Chicago in the past. We started off the morning with breakfast and a few brief presentations on effective sales communication. Then it was time for us to take on the challenge and brainstorm our own sal...

DMC Welcomes its Newest Employee with a Fiesta

Last Friday witnessed the welcoming of yours truly to the DMC family in the form of a Welcome Party. At DMC, we welcome every new employee with a party at a location of their choice, and I chose Taco Joint for their unlimited tacos and margaritas. The event proved to be one that everyone enjoyed thoroughly and that few wanted to leave even after the food and drinks had ended! The Welcome Party tradition is very valuable for new employees at DMC because it gives them the chance to know their c...

After being named to the Crain's Chicago Business List of "Best Places to Work" in Chicago, FOX 32 News swung by the office to chat with DMC President Frank Riordan and see what DMC is all about.

Our colloborative and spacious office space, Wiskie the office dog, our Swayze room (named after our admiration of Patrick Swyaze's customer service in the movie Roadhouse), and our monthly activity fund to name a few.

Shamrock Shuffle 2014 Meets the DMC Competition

At DMC, an opportunity for a healthy dose of competition never goes untapped. Our annual participation in the Shamrock Shuffle 8k is always a good excuse to get our competitive muscles burning (and our real muscles too). DMC employees have been running the 4.97 mile race throughout Chicago's cityscape since 2005; and every year, we do our darndest to not only beat each other, but to beat our past times as well.  The Chiberan temperatures parted ways for a few rays of sunshine on ...

DMC's Favorite Sips from the Chicago Cider Summit

Anyone living in the Midwest will agree that this winter has been full of too much snow and cold weather. So, when the Chicago Cider Summit was announced, we DMCers just couldn’t let go of the chance to warm up the winter. On this typical February afternoon, a group of us met at Navy Pier for the event. It was a blast! There were numerous ciders that we had never tried before, such as herbal ciders with a basil taste, dessert ice ciders, and apricot ciders. There was a lot of de...

DMC Digs In at Chicago Restaurant Week

Restaurant Week in Chicago was one of the few things that helped us Midwesterners pull through this year’s Polar Vortex. With a line-up of restaurants spanning cuisines from the east of Asia’s influence to the coasts of Peruvian perfection, DMC employees were not wanting for either innovative or traditional menu selections. Our Marketing Team made reservations at Tanta, Embeya, Demera and the Pump Room with employees having the option to dine at one or more of the restaurants. On ...

WhirlyBall Welcome, DMC Style

WhirlyBall Welcome, DMC Style

Our recent outing will definitely be inducted into the DMC Welcome Party Hall of Fame. For my welcome party we took our “talents” to WhirlyBall around the corner from our office. I had heard that WhirlyBall is a DMC favorite and I myself had never tried it, what a perfect opportunity! If I had to sum up the night I’d say we came, we saw, but we definitely did not conquer. However, in true DMC fashion we stayed true to our sixth core value and we definitely had fun! The turn...

DMC Company Poker Tournament

We DMCers can get pretty competitive in just about anything: from WhirlyBall to golf to bowling we like to keep a friendly air of rivalry live around the office. This past Friday was no exception as we wrapped up the work week with a company Poker Tournament. Complete with DMC card decks, authentic poker chips, pizza, Wiskie (the dog), whiskey (the drink), a fine array of bourbon and scotch, and a host of eager players, we were ready to kick the weekend off right. This isn't the...
