Pros

You can make your own career but you have to be extremely proactive
Flexible policies for schedule and overtime (if you prove useful to the right team)

Cons

Information flow is extremely fragmented as the company is trying to figure out how to become a one company instead of a several small very specialized ones.
The company is private and very avert to change

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company is private and its underlying mission is to maximize profit of the owners. That is understood. However, senior management needs to be serious and confront the fact that they cannot grow with the current company structure. Realistically, unless the company dissolves all legal barriers between sibling companies and generate a single entity (culture), it won't be able to compete. It will eventually be consumed by larger ones.

    Pros

    Dewberry is large enough that you can have opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    As in any larger company, the conditions vary from division to division and even within the divisions. It all depends on the manager. Some are very good and others are very bad. Unfortunately, upper management seems oblivious to poor managers and rank and file moral. As long as the money is coming in and they get their bonuses, there’s no reason to change anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the people that actually do the work. Senior leadership needs to get anonymous feedback about senior managers and middle managers and act on that feedback. Bad managers are driving off good people.

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

    Pros

    Good company to get early career experience.

    Cons

    It is an engineering firm first and foremost. The architecture arm of Dewberry has tons of talented people, but it struggles to really develop into a top rate firm because corporate is ambivalent / out of touch with its needs.
