I worked at Dewberry full-time for less than a year

Pros

This company does a great job of recruiting the best. They have innovative ideas for select departments within the company.

Cons

The company is currently management heavy leaving no ladder of growth for individuals starting at the bottom. Each Department within the company is different and should be valuated individually. Be careful, you may be interviewed by a whole department and then placed under one person to do a completely different job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to those who work underneath you about company and personal needs. Inspire and encourage innovation.

    Cons

    It's a very conservative company, which can be a pro or a con.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more creative with benefits package...consider adding a wellness program.
    Bonuses--we rely heavily on selling our services; consider adding a bonus for those who work on major, successful projects and/or client retention bonuses. You need to reward your employees more often for the results they generate.
