    I have been working at Dewberry full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being family-owned, there is very limited bureaucracy for a company of this size, and I have found that creativity and initiative are encouraged and rewarded. Company values are walked, not just talked. Leadership has been supportive through some tough times with clients/projects; if you know what you want and treat the company as your own opportunities abound. Salaries and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Overhead costs are strictly evaluated and limited. Do not expect frills or flamboyant spending at any level. Basic needs are met well and frugality is a highly valued employee trait.

    Advice to Management

    Need to spend more on local office IT support and compensation for support staff.
