    Pros

    Team environment
    Young, fresh talent
    Creative atmosphere
    Good health insurance benefits
    Nice 401k benefits

    Cons

    Very low salary - below the average
    Lack of direction among executives
    No clear path for advancing within the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to be willing to pay employees competitively in order to retain them. Also, a lack of direction among executives/upper management created a rift in the positive culture of the company.

    Pros

    Company culture is awesome! Activities and benefits are great with some of the best in the area. Employees "seem" generally happy.

    Cons

    Favoritism abounds! Beware the "open door policy". If you go to the boss's boss prepare to be written up - hard. They seemed very lenient at the time, but absences became a player in the write up. It definitely depends on the supervisor you have as to how happy you are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management knows there is a salary mismatch of the jobs being performed. We spend hundreds of thousands on training, but they do not have a corporate trainer on site and spend money every month to fly them to the corporate location. Couln't we have that moey towards our paychecks?

    Pros

    A vibrant community of professionals
    Across the company there's a lot of collaboration
    Working with some fun technologies

    Cons

    Benefits are quite light
    Individual businesses can have some pretty poisonous cultures
    Big disconnect between high levels of leadership and the business unit goals
    There are a few really bad executives that create an unhealthy air of politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow the culture that some of your younger, up-and-coming managers brings to the company
    Get rid of the most politically scheming and dangerous executives

    I have been working at Dominion Enterprises

    Pros

    Company premise and purpose are based around customer commitment, industry changing technology, and *ideally* open-mindedness.

    Cons

    Too many Chiefs, not enough Indians.
    Focus on process alteration 95% of the time, focus on customer feedback is the miniscule 5%. It seems that management within this company isn't willing to get their hands dirty. The vital members of management are usually golfing or vacationing.

    I worked at Dominion Enterprises full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A comfortable, safe, and well organized working environment. My co-workers and supervisors were a joy.

    Cons

    Pay does not suffice the workload responsibilities.
    Upper Management is rigid. Their SOP's were branded in stone. So, sometimes moral got low, and you are typically treated like a number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please see above statement.
    I wouldn't recommend this company to just any friend. A chosen friend would need to be a "text book" qualified candidate for the right employment opportunity.

    Bullies at best

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Dominion Enterprises

    Pros

    Very talented people unfortunately not above low level management. Great way to gain digital media experience.

    Cons

    The mentality is to lead through bullying not through empowerment. I expressed my concern about my direct report -It was treated like an isolated incident and I found out its been ongoing problem throughout his career. Insult to injury he was promoted to a new position and has an arrogant "untouchable" attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will continue to lose talent by promoting within until you address some major "good old boys" elitists.

    Pros

    Training in Norfolk was top-notch
    Lot of potential
    Pay was decent

    Cons

    but for the inflexibility of my then manager, who did a 180 when I told her I needed time to be with a terminally ill family member, I'd still be there...probably in her job..ha

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    call a spade a spade and get rid of some of the middle management rif-raf
