    Bullies at best

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Dominion Enterprises

    Pros

    Very talented people unfortunately not above low level management. Great way to gain digital media experience.

    Cons

    The mentality is to lead through bullying not through empowerment. I expressed my concern about my direct report -It was treated like an isolated incident and I found out its been ongoing problem throughout his career. Insult to injury he was promoted to a new position and has an arrogant "untouchable" attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will continue to lose talent by promoting within until you address some major "good old boys" elitists.

    Pros

    A vibrant community of professionals
    Across the company there's a lot of collaboration
    Working with some fun technologies

    Cons

    Benefits are quite light
    Individual businesses can have some pretty poisonous cultures
    Big disconnect between high levels of leadership and the business unit goals
    There are a few really bad executives that create an unhealthy air of politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow the culture that some of your younger, up-and-coming managers brings to the company
    Get rid of the most politically scheming and dangerous executives

    Pros

    Training in Norfolk was top-notch
    Lot of potential
    Pay was decent

    Cons

    but for the inflexibility of my then manager, who did a 180 when I told her I needed time to be with a terminally ill family member, I'd still be there...probably in her job..ha

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    call a spade a spade and get rid of some of the middle management rif-raf

    I have been working at Dominion Enterprises

    Pros

    Company premise and purpose are based around customer commitment, industry changing technology, and *ideally* open-mindedness.

    Cons

    Too many Chiefs, not enough Indians.
    Focus on process alteration 95% of the time, focus on customer feedback is the miniscule 5%. It seems that management within this company isn't willing to get their hands dirty. The vital members of management are usually golfing or vacationing.

    I worked at Dominion Enterprises full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A comfortable, safe, and well organized working environment. My co-workers and supervisors were a joy.

    Cons

    Pay does not suffice the workload responsibilities.
    Upper Management is rigid. Their SOP's were branded in stone. So, sometimes moral got low, and you are typically treated like a number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please see above statement.
    I wouldn't recommend this company to just any friend. A chosen friend would need to be a "text book" qualified candidate for the right employment opportunity.

    Pros

    The people, the atmosphere, and the growth potential. I love my career Dominion helped me build, their confidence in me, and their support helped me to be successful and grow within the company.

    Cons

    All companies have their up's and down's. There is effort to try make employees happy, as well as the customers, which is hard in an industry that changes sometimes daily.
