    I worked at Dominion Enterprises

    Pros

    They had offered Decent benefits, and the series of managers I had were fine; small office lends itself to close family-like environment.

    Cons

    Field offices completely out of the loop from corporate. Commission rates consistently lowered over 10yr tenure. You can only advance by agreeing to relocate.

    I have been working at Dominion Enterprises full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very relaxed and laid back environment, decent work culture, very accessible lower management. The developers at any level have a lot of say in the technologies and tools that they would like to use. The company is ready to adapt the latest technologies. Regular user groups and Hack-a-thon events(with more food than one can eat) are very fun to attend, and also useful for socializing across various businesses.

    The company provides multiple career paths and you get to work with your manager time to time in working personal development. Flexible with work hours and depending on your manager you can choose to work from home occasionally. No limitations on when you could use the PTOs. Norfolk hq is a beautiful building with great views to downtown and harbor.

    Cons

    Very slow growth rate at a personal level. Most of senior management is from the print era and needs to embrace the latest trends in web. Not very clear business goals. Relatively less employee retention rate. Lack of diversity among the leadership. Less formal training and usually not everybody gets to attend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on hiring experienced talent. Establish clear goals. Aim higher and find ways to compete at a larger level.

    I have been working at Dominion Enterprises

    Pros

    Dominion Enterprises promotes from within and because of that you see a lot of tenure within our current employees. If you are a hard working employee management notices and will spend time mentoring and developing you to get you to the next level. The company also has a great culture and the activities committee spends a lot of time thinking of creative and fun activities for everyone that works here. There is also a lot of flexibility in work hours if you have personal things outside of work you need to take care of.

    Cons

    I think the compensation levels could be increased. It is a very competitive market place and can be hard to attract and keep top talent.

    Pros

    DE is a great company that embraces constant change and values healthy lifestyles. Careers here encourage autonomy with merit-based performance and rewards. Forums, user groups and committees drive the culture. Community outreach is huge.

    Cons

    Figuring out how to best advance your position if you're not in a sales role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in the people that would rather be the CEO of their own company.

    Pros

    The employees are very friendly and management has been very supportive of employee growth and happiness. Any time there has been problems they are dealt with very professionally. The company hosts a number of different events each year that are fun and allows different groups to socialize and team build. The central building located in Downtown Norfolk is in walking distance of many restaurants and shopping making eating out or doing shopping during lunch.

    Cons

    The company is large and the way the businesses are located in the building its common to not have a lot of interaction with people outside of your day to day work.
