Great company, sometimes short-sighted.

Pros

Great relationship with government agencies, therefore wins significant project work. Easy for a young person to rise quickly.

Cons

Difficult for people in offices outside of HQ to stay in the loop. Not much synergy between offices, but there seemed to be great potential for it. Decisions were made sometimes without regard for impact it would have on staff. People get to be known for their strengths, but often other talents go unused. Lot of competition for upper management positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think outside the box more. Tap into energy of staff in other offices. Work more to engage other offices.

    I worked at Dewberry full-time

    Pros

    Fair compensation & benefits
    Wide variety of available projects

    Cons

    Hiring managers will do whatever it takes to ensure they get a potential employee, with no intention of keeping their promises.
    Skimping of technical staff in branch offices, yet still expect to deliver a product which is 120%.
    Day to day work schedule is very robotic with no social events throughout the year, except for Christmas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that are qualified and act more ethically and follow the tenets that are set out.
