Good Company

Software Developer (Current Employee)
Boca Raton, FL

I have been working at Dominion Enterprises as an intern for less than a year

ProsGreat place to work. I actually worked in the Homes Media Solutions branch in Boca Raton, Fl and co-workers are phenomenal.

ConsI was an intern for this company and I could say I do not have any complaints about it. Even though they said the intern program is relatively new I found it was really great.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Fragmented Company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ProsGood benefits, great place to start a career. Generous vacation policy and most federal holidays are observed.

ConsThe company headquarters are based in Norfolk, and if you work at any of the other locations it is very difficult to advance outside of your specific business unit. Senior management has a "good old boy" feel, and seem to take care of those they know at the expense of more qualified folks who do not directly interact with senior management in the course of their normal duties. Salaries are relatively low, and raises are based off of a predetermined formula rather than merit based.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good company to work for if you negotiate your salary from the start

Director (Current Employee)

I have been working at Dominion Enterprises full-time for more than 5 years

ProsStable work, good benefits, company shows that they care about their employees. Flexible work environment (depends of manager).

ConsVery hard to get salary increases (like most private companies), most of the time they lose talent because they see increases as percentage instead of number. They like to pay low compared to average, company compares salaries to low salary locations like norfolk, texas etc then everyone else is overpaid for them.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop loosing good talent, what's the point of doing internships or hiring beginners if you cannot increase from 40k to 80k because its 50% increase. only the mediocre remains and the raising stars leave to get paid better somewhere else. At the same time you have senior people doing nothing and making 3 times the money.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

DE Is Not a Happy Place to Be!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Dominion Enterprises full-time

ProsGood benefits, Nice Office Building, Wonderful Co-Workers!

ConsHigh Turnover at Cycle Trader, Low Morale, Little Respect for Employees and Customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementWe have lost so many employees from the Cycle Trader division of DE the past few years, it is very sad to see. Maybe our managers need to stop telling other people how great our culture is, and actually start treating people better. Many teammates are afraid to speak up at our office, and the result is we keep losing good people!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Former regoinal manager at Dominion Enterprises

Regional Manager (Former Employee)

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

ProsGood benefits, reasonably fair expense policies, financially stable company, interesting work (at times), some travel regional involved

ConsUpper Management did NOT listen to middle management's suggestions. Customer problems with billing seemed to go on far too long without resolution. Lots of ego among managers at the corporate office.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management needs to address problems MUCH FASTER. Customers would be infuriated by the amount of foot dragging that went on constantly. I left by choice because it was not a healthy culture.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
