Pros

DE is a nice place to work. It's relatively low-stress, nice people, good location. Managers tend to let there employees manage themselves.

Cons

Limited opportunities to show what you're made of and potentially move up. Lots of "cooks in the kitchen" on a lot of projects I've dealt with. They've under gone some re-org in the past few months to help with this issue, but up to now it's been fuzzy on who reports to who and who has the last word.

Advice to Management

Waffling makes people lose confidence in your ability to manage. Lead and we will follow.

    A few bad apples ruin what could be a great company

    Pros

    work/life balance is good except when short staffed
    centralized office complex
    standard work week, rarely weekends
    well known businesses

    Cons

    very bad management
    drab corporate culture and identify crisis
    operated like a collection of feudal confederates
    pay is horrible
    in order to boost profits, they make you take 5 days off without pay

    Advice to Management

    Always a source of friction between those that run the businesses and product. You have a collection of people in the field making decisions that know nothing of the web. Instead of holding people accountable, they just restructure the company.

    It's a place to hang your hat, but I would keep my coat on until management shows some competence and real leadership.

    Pros

    It is disappointing to see the bad reviews and reputation Domnion has on this site. However, I also believe that the majority of these reviews are credible and accurate. If I had to list to Pros, I would include:
    Professional work environment and nice office environment
    Good training department, though resources are scarce
    Decent benefits package
    The businesses are recognizable
    Management leaves you alone for the most part if you perform (but doesn't develop people)
    Smart collegues among the rank and file

    Cons

    While I don't want to get caught up in a series of rants, there are some things about this company that are highly frustrating and disappointing. These include:
    Low pay for industry
    Inconsistent compensation package (depends on who hired you and when)
    Senior management team communicates one thing but appears to do another
    Too many reorganizations so many people are always wondering about future layoffs
    Unpaid time off in order to help become more proftiable (5 days right now)
    Management seems to operate in a "company for sale" mode
    Most departments are always under staffed, especially operations and IT
    Senior management team doesn't seem to understand technology and trends
    CEO isn't a strong leader and is not very inspiring

    Advice to Management

    This company needs to communicate its vision more clearly and then start making decisions that support it. Please share with us more detailed information and treat us like adults - we can handle the tough decisions if we simply have a better understanding of what our business challenges are. How about some long term profit sharing or a 401k plan that encourages people to stay long term?
