    Environment is pretty good. Casual attire makes it more relaxed and fun atmosphere. But employee turnover rate is high.

    Pros

    Casual attire. Down to earth employees. Trying to be a more relaxed environment for employees but still a cubicle farm. Culture is improving.

    Cons

    Underpaid. Definitely not competitive pay to the area. Also, not always clear direction and not clear what you can do to get promotions. Assuming that's why there's a high turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees invest in you, invest back. No incentives gives people no reason to work harder or stay longer. Also, relax. Get rid of the cubicles. It's not 1994 anymore.

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

    Pros

    -You can wear jeans/causal clothes
    -Peers are great people
    -Jack Ross is a decent CEO
    - Benefits program is decent

    Cons

    1. Good ol' boy system - promotes the same managers over and over. I can't remember the last time a peer was promoted to a manager. MIT program is a joke. Only people that are well liked are chosen to go through it and even once your done there is no where to go because the same people get promoted.

    2. Cubie world is alive and well. 3 grey walls is what you get. They try and make it cool buy adding a couple chairs as a "lounge", but it's seriously lacking. Not everyone is allowed stand up desks. Company should be promoting the idea of open areas and ways for people to stand up vs. sitting down all day.

    3. VP's have and do make you feel that if you make a somewhat decent salary after years of employment that you should be grateful to have it and that they can take it away anytime they like and have. They have no issues changing pay just because they can. Even if, as a division, you made budget/goal for the entire year.

    4. Some departments have the opportunity to adjust their schedules to accommodate kids or school, etc. But other departments want to make you feel that your work hours are this and there is no exceptions. Not fair for hard working employees to see other departments enjoy this opportunity and some are not. Same goes with people working for home 1 day a week and most employees can't when we ALL would love it!! Again, micro managing gone crazy and stuck in the 90's office mentality.

    5. Senior level VP's need to get more involved with division level changes and make sure that all divisions in the company are even and fair (flexible schedules, etc...). You have great employees here, but you have managers in place that make you feel like it's their way and there is the door if you don't like it.

    6. Impossible to get on a committee within the company (activities, united way, etc...) unless you are in with the "in" crowd.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more involved senior VP's - find out if the changes people are making are in line with all the other divisions.

    Get out of the 90's and look at other companies and how they have their office's set up. Promote stand up desks, hell maybe even 15 minute yoga breaks in each quad to destress!!

    Pros

    Team environment
    Young, fresh talent
    Creative atmosphere
    Good health insurance benefits
    Nice 401k benefits

    Cons

    Very low salary - below the average
    Lack of direction among executives
    No clear path for advancing within the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to be willing to pay employees competitively in order to retain them. Also, a lack of direction among executives/upper management created a rift in the positive culture of the company.

    Pros

    It is a decent place to get your first experience in an office enviornment.

    Cons

    Low pay, heavy workload, unappreciated by management, no incentives. They talk the talk and it all sounds great but reality is far, far different. You move up if your a man or part of the right clique. Hard work is rewarded by piling more on, and ignoring the employees when the legitimately say that they can't take on any more. 11 - 15 hour work days are the norm. Raises are 2%, regardless of how good of a job you do. Very little real communication from the "Head Office", Tenure means nothing - no added benefits, no ability to get promoted and no regard for years of dedication and hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No point in giving advice - they don't listen to anyone anyway. Their turnover rate really ought to speak volumes. Especially when they see tenured employees leaving.
