    Pros

    Great learning experience and set me up to be successful at my next job.

    Cons

    High favoritism and outdated management techniques. Work 60 hours one week and receive no extra pay, but if you need to leave 15 minutes early for a doctor appointment and that comes out of your PTO.

    Advice to Management

    Read a management book.

    I worked at Dewberry full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Dewberry wins many high profile projects and has some fantastic people. Upper management does seem to care about employees and are passionate about the work.

    Cons

    Its culture is stuck in an older mindset in that decisions are made that appear to do the bare minimum to keep employees at the company. 401k matching is 2%, the health plan isn't great and extremely expensive, no cell reimbursement, no bonuses unless you are a corporate officer, and the IT equipment provided to employees (at least in our region) was terribly inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to attract and retain the best people, work on the company culture. It's a big ship and has a long way to go.
