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

    Pros

    Benefits and the opportunity to pack a box to move to another company.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency and follow through. The raises are actually insulting, especially after speaking with colleagues on the same level. The project managers are the only ones that receive recognition and raises. There is virtually no feedback to analysts on how they are doing until it has become a larger issue. Lastly, there is a lot of drama throughout the office. If your quality was needing improvement, you would only hear this from someone on your level. Management should communicate the efficiency of employees discretely. Very rarely are opportunities available, and if they are, most people do not hear about them. Dishonesty.

    I worked at Dewberry full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very nice people, mid level staff always open to helping college level hires integrate and get design experience Opportunities to work at different offices Competitive salary base and you get paid OT, sick hours and vacation time are combined into one pool Not a high stress environment

    Cons

    Disconnect between upper management and lower level staff No incentive to really push or challenge yourself, work gets boring after a while Rare that younger engineers get any client facing time, can get stuck working on the same project or client for years 401k match is a joke, no yearly bonuses, not many other financial incentives Lack of company culture, the attitude of staff really varies from office to office. Feels like fragmented offices instead of one consolidated firm.

    Interesting projects, energetic staff, experienced managers. Friendly coworkers and bosses. Staff encouraged to participate in industry events.

    Benefits are average, not bad - just average for industry Overtime required - but are paid for it and it is known in advance so you can set your own schedule to work.

    Pros

    Dewberry as a company is not bad. They seem to care about their employees.

    Cons

    PDPs are a joke. Moral in the IT Department is at an all time low and no one cares. It is every man for himself and only a select few are allowed to make any mistakes.
