    Pros

    Having worked for Dominion Enterprises for almost two years, the most exciting thing is to see that DE is a company that is committed to getting better. They honestly care about their employees and invest in their careers. They offer a great work life balance while allowing individuals to work on exciting projects. I have really enjoyed my time here and look forward to coming to work in the mornings.

    Cons

    I had heard, prior to taking a job at Dominion Enterprises, that they were a stodgy place to work. It was only by a recommendation from a friend that I decided to work here. I am glad I did because they are aware of this perception, which I have found not to be true, and are actively working to offer the best work environment/culture in Downtown Norfolk.

    Advice to Management

    Continue making the progress that I have seen over the last two years. Its encouraging and exciting to see that the company is committed to improving the lives of their employees.

    Pros

    Good technology company to work for.

    Cons

    Could be more opportunities for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those that are high achievers, not just the squeaky wheels.

    Pros

    Open culture, good pay, decent benefits, dedication to remote workers, casual attire, and depending on your business unit, a real sense of "family" in your teams.

    Cons

    Distributed teams and business units cause longer delivery times. Communication falls apart at times causing issues and delays.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in tech. It'll expand your reach into segments you may not have considered before.

    Pros

    -Work Hours are Felxible
    -Relaxed and Encouraging Atmosphere
    -Opportunity to take on projects outside of your department (inter-department collaboration)
    -Exposure to all areas of the business (This really depends on you manager & VP--Personally, I've had an wesoem experience with this!)
    -AMAZING Work-Life Balance
    -Lots of events to help you grow as a professional
    -Great office culture
    -The company sponsors tons of events to connect employees and their managers in a Social setting
    -WONDERFUL benefits--best vision, health and dental plan I've ever had!
    -Wellness program is the best!

    Cons

    -The individual companies within DE are still fairly disconnected with the exception of building-wide events
    -Salary increase structure needs improvement

    Advice to Management

    I'd say perform a building wide survey on how individual employees feel about their manager, keep the employee anonymous of course but find out why some of us are having an amazing time truly developing as professionals while others are a bit miserable--inconsistent management perhaps? let the ones who have managed the art of leadership teach the others! This would probably reduce the turn over in some departments/companies.

    Pros

    If you are seeking a strict environment full of red tape and stifling controls, Dominion Enterprises is not the company for you.
    However, if you are seeking a fun loving environment that promotes talented and innovative people, then this is the place to be.

    Cons

    The cons are few but it is my opinion that there could be more diversity in the Senior Management team, hopefully that changes over time.

    Advice to Management

    The company has changed significantly since I have joined.
    There is an emphasis on employee satisfaction and morale.
    My advice to Management would be to continue to promote smart, vibrant, creative people who are dedicated to making Dominion Enterprises a company that we can all be proud to be associated with.

    Pros

    - Engineers & Developers are set up with great workstations, typically Mac (though you can choose a Windows machine if you want)
    - Teams gather inside & outside of work to celebrate promotions, project completions, and going-aways.
    - Administrators are starting to see the value of R&D, comfortable dress, agile development, embracing new technology, and other aspects of smaller companies.
    - Company hackathons and opportunities to take a project you love and turn it into something real
    - Pretty competitive pay for the area
    - Work/Life balance is great. You can comfortably come and go as long as your work is done and you're not missing important meetings. Work done outside the office usually helps you stand out.

    Cons

    - During periods of transition some developers and engineers get lost in transition which has caused some high turn-over
    - Some leadership positions are still filled by people who don't bring much to the company other than time of service
    - There's a lack of senior-level engineers to act as mentors

    Advice to Management

    Please focus on continuing to become a technology company. Giving people (not just developers) projects they can own is the best way to get the best out of them. Hire more selectively and be willing to pay more for top talent.
