    Pros

    Great senior leadership. Lots of contests and opportunity to earn a trip to President's Club.

    Cons

    Keeping customers renewed and happy for the long run can be a challenge. No bonuses on renewals or incentives to keep long term business

    Advice to Management

    Keep the contests and new products coming. It helps to have something new to present to new and existing customers.

    Pros

    I'm in a sales division and have a very autonomous work environment based on trust that we reps will get the job done. My work from home schedule since 2008 (have been with Dominion since 2001) has been a dream come true and allows me a wonderful work/life balance. I am trusted to telecommute because I perform and produce. My income is healthy and although I could earn more elsewhere the flexibility for my life and the benefits I receive make it worthwhile as there is a good balance.

    Cons

    No sales incentives or bonus structure, no sales contests. Management is very analytical but not very motivational. They are fair however and approachable and open to ideas. Just have to motivate yourself as there are no cheerleaders here!

    Advice to Management

    Besides being 'task focused managers' look at becoming 'vision focused leaders' implement some fun into the work environment by way of sales contests, fostering group discussions and leading through motivation with vision.

    I worked at Dominion Enterprises

    Pros

    Decent Pay and vacation time.

    Cons

    Pointless meetings and conference calls that are just a waste of time. Monthly "One-on-One individual meetings, as well. This company wastes half of your time having you sit in meetings AND driving back to the office in the middle of your day, to get on a conference call that can easily be taken from the road.

    Advice to Management

    Leave the sales reps alone and let them actually sell.

    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

    -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.
