    I worked at Dominion Enterprises part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    When you don't hold a manager position you don't have many people looking over your shoulder. The people are really nice.

    Cons

    This is your typical Corporate America business. Promotions come from how long you've been there, not necessarily if you are right for the job. A lot of middle management is doing nothing and can't manage their employees well. They also over work and way under pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees what they are worth. And actually promote for ability not because they've been there forever.

    I have been working at Dominion Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedules and understanding when it comes to family.
    Location
    Relaxed dress code
    Great stepping stone to gain knowledge and experience, but if you are not careful, you'll look up and the time has gone away.

    Cons

    Management lies, openly talk about their people and one another behind their backs and the leadership comes from the reps. They act more like high schoolers than adults and treat their workers the same way at times. They will take your ideas and pass them off as theirs, get the bonus and give you a pat on the back. The raises are horrible. They say you can only get 2% because that is all that's allowed but they make 6 figures. You never get promoted unless you are one of their buddies...then not only will they promote you but they will create a bs position to keep you around. That's what friends are for right?? There's no advancement, and you'll be trapped in the same chair forever. You'll get worked to death and given none of the credit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know the value of your employees and fight for more than 2% when they are more than deserving of it. Upper, upper management...please give a cost of living increase and catch up with inflation. This company can be great. Give the managers extra training on leadership and listening.

    Pros

    excellent work home balance. good compensation, paid parking, good work environment, excellent training program

    Cons

    no opportunity to move up with in the company. I felt I would never get another raise. I was already at the top, and nothing to strive for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    encourage your internal community by providing annual raises, make promotions possible.

    Located downtown in its own building, comparative pay and benefits. Some fun projects, good mixture of culture.

    broken into so many smaller companies under one roof, a little unpredictable.

    Forging signatures of manager and sales reps on sales contracts is common place. Company has no integrity.

    I worked at Dominion Enterprises full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    None none none none none

    Cons

    Was told proudly by a Regional Manager that DE doesn't train, employees are expected to figure out how to do things on their own. Staying for 7 years. The most negative, back stabbing, dysfunctional place I ever worked. They fake their own search results by asking all employees to download, use and falsely overrate their own apps and search tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Until they remove Jack Ross and Terry, I married the owner's niece to get where I am today, Slattery, this company has no hope.

    I worked at Dominion Enterprises full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The best pro about this company is its location, also there was a lot of flexibility given with personal life but I honestly think that was because of my particular manager.

    Cons

    This company needs to work on their business practices which are so undefined you truly are in a state of confusion at all times. Management needs to be reconsidered in regards of qualifications and consistency. It seemed to be that everyone around me was content on doing things haphazard, wrong, without any kind of communication with other teams in which their job was dependent on a goal getting met...there was never any questions asked, just a team of frustrated and confused workers doing things the way they have been told even if it made no sense. New systems were implemented without in plan in place. The worst factor was the moral of the company. Between the blame game and petty and unnecessary dislikes going on, it made for a very tense environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IF this company doesn't fold with the next couple of years, I would suggest management (QUALIFIED) get in a room and do a total overhaul of their business plans.
