Fast paced, cool projects, stressful, little room for advancement, and little to no compensation
Fabricator and Installer (Former Employee) – Kansas City – February 1, 2018
Work and build some cool stuff but upper management doesn't seem to care much about its production staff. Production is held to tight deadlines and is very stressful at times. Very fast paced. Little room for advancement and sub par compensation for the stress and skills required for the job.

I loved seeing the new and challenging jobs that I got to work on. I enjoyed problem solving on an ongoing basis. Raises didn't happen as often as they should have. The little appreciation that was given was never aimed in the right direction.

We work with some high profile clients on some really cool projects in the Sports and Theater industry. It's really fast paced, and demanding at times. Generally the co-workers are pretty good people, and are a large part of why I work there. Management is okay; there are definitely worse managers out there. Per haps the biggest short coming of DI is their reputation to pay at sub-standard rates and raises do not come easily or often. The company has invested in growing and capital improvements, but they do not re-invest in current employees, in either continuing education or raises. Employee retention of top talent is something that is an issue for them and will continue to be so until their philosophy changes with regard to re-investing in their current employees. Overall it is a good company, with a few changes they could be a great company.
Nice work environment & facilities. Exciting work / projects.
Sub-standard pay, low end benefit package, demanding.
Exciting projects with absolutely no opportunity for advancement
Prefer not to say (Current Employee) – Overland Park, KS – January 27, 2015
Dimensional Innovations prefers to hire shop floor staff by first forcing them through a temp agency, with promises of rapid hires for the right candidate. Many temps wait months, or up to two years to be hired, regardless of performance. Once hired, many promises are made about advancement, but are almost never kept. Even when an advancement plan is shown in writing, the plan is diverted, and the employee is given "just one more test" to prove their worth. This continues until the employee is beaten into submission, or quits for one of the many better paying alternatives. They lose incredibly large numbers of good employees, who help maintain a positive work environment, with these policies. Most employees are paid well below the going rate for their job description, including engineers being paid at 75% or less of the industry average. The upper management makes certain to regularly let the lower level employees know that they are not appreciated by keeping a strong divide between those employees who get dirty for a living, and those who stay clean. DI is known for asking hourly employees to clock out for company events, which are scheduled during normal working hours, and then telling them they can earn back their missing hours by coming in early every day, regardless of their personal family situation and scheduling requirements. Salaried employees are given no such requirements. The Chief Financial Officer and head of Human Resources has been quoted as saying, "I never thought of hiring from within." The upper management is a group that got together with a muchmore... smaller company, many years ago, and never learned to scale their jobs with the company's growth. This is honestly one of the worst companies I have ever worked for, with some of the best employees. It's depressing to see how unhappy all of these good people are every day.
There is one positive review of Dimensional Innovations on Indeed. It was written by a marketing employee in the company. It is fake.less

I feel like the company does important things. We cater to several large, well known clients so to work there is a badge of honor of sorts. The majority of people I work with are very good at what they do. Advancement, or even lateral movement is met with great resistance. There is no review schedule and little hope of regular wage increases.
Great career opportunities in dynamic environment!

Dimensional Innovations is a successful, growing company with many opportunites for advancement. It is a place where management listens and provides incentives for creative problem solving. Employees are empowered to improve and impact the company through their individual strengths and ideas.The work is diverse, each project poses new challenges and possibilities. The staff is a hard-working, committed group that interacts like a family. There is always more work to be done than hours in the day, so it is comforting to have the support and respect of this dedicated team working with you.
Do not apply for these guys. They are un-reliable.
Don't want to say (Former Employee) – Merriam KS – November 25, 2012
Do not work for these guys. They are UN-reliable and will fire you with out notice, cause or reason. They go through a temp service called Focuswork forces. And say they will hire you full time if you prove your self, but will fire you for no reason just to keep you from going full time.
the make some awesome stuff.
they didn't give me the chance to do what they hired me to do.
