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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Benefits are great
    People are excellent and mostly positive
    Management is very understanding of life - will close early because of traffic, weather etc.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible
    Raise freezes / Unpaid holidays
    No defined direction
    Within verticals:
    There are very limited tech savvy people in leadership positions. It's very frustrating as a lower level employee to have to explain simple things to leaders and then have to explain the same thing in a month.
    There is an overall lack of a business plan and tactics to achieve goals. Achievement of goals is independent from success because goals are set by a management team that doesn't fully understand technology.
    Good people in the wrong positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a long look at the future of the company and put a flexible plan in place with goals that matter. Put people in positions that can help achieve those goals. Leverage technology within the walls of Dominion to achieve efficiency. Be open to alternative, bottom-line affecting practices. A 4-day week, telecommuting etc.

    A company that is losing quality employees despite high unemployment

    Former Employee - Manager  in  Norfolk, VA
    Former Employee - Manager in Norfolk, VA

    I worked at Dominion Enterprises

    Pros

    Autonomy to run your business (with limited resources)
    Great building and downtown corporate office
    Good place to network and establish industry connections
    TOL brands were industry leaders
    Good work/home balance
    If you have tenure, it's stable employment

    Cons

    HR department built on compliance, not employee welfare
    Positions are created and filled without notice or opportunity to apply
    Limited or no tech knowledge by exec mgmt
    Political promotion practices and bad history of external hires
    Limited resources and outdated software
    IT has talent, but frustrated and overworked
    Cheap with essential marketing investments
    Tenure over talent and efficiency over innovation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees and evaluate your upper mgmt promotions over the last two years. You have unqualified people in place that you wouldn't even interview, much less hire, if you had to fill the same positions today.

    >Determine the desired knowledge, qualities and experience of your leadership needs
    >Rewrite your job descriptions based on it
    >Compare this to your current management team
    >Make the tough decisions based on business needs

    Until you do this, you will continue to lose good people as they will not work long term for people that can't lead in a tech environment.
