    I worked at Dominion Energy full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Generally good pay and benefits for everyone. Work isn't too hard or stressful for most (though outages can get a bit crazy at times). Generally though, the pace is very steady and manageable. Lots of good people and coworkers. Cool place to work.

    Cons

    Outages can get a bit wild for most. Thankfully, they only last about a month per year. Communication and planning can get spotty at times. Nuclear work culture isn't for everyone. It's not like working anywhere else. The pressure, stress, and workloads of the outages can turn some good people into rabid warewolves, especially some managers. Thankfully, once the outage ends, the workloads are deliberately reduced...

    Advice to Management

    There's a lot of preaching about the importance of safety and the site's safety culture, but sometimes, especially during the outages, where time and deadlines are of heavy importance, shortcuts get taken by some and good people can and sometimes do get hurt. Don't let the temptation of bonuses get in the way of other peoples' well-being. Fully live and embrace the safety culture you guys preach about so often. Giving...

      I have been working at Dominion Energy full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Good pay, good benefits, can wear jeans to work, don't have to tuck in your shirt (seriously).

      Cons

      4% 401k match is pretty low. Company policy states we can work 4x10's, but management won't let engineering, even though other departments at the same plant can. The best way to get a raise or promotion is to have another job offer and be on your way out the door.

      Advice to Management

      Reward employees, follow your own policies, increase 401k matching

      I have been working at Dominion Energy full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Flexible work schedule for some employees, 3 weeks vacation, 4% 401k match, good dental insurance, EPS based yearly bonus 8.5 - 15% based upon job title, good work/life balance

      Cons

      Lower 401k match than most companies, removed the pension plan for employees, extremely high health insurance costs and deductibles, lower than average salaries when compared to industry standards, extremely biased based upon sex and race for management positions, refusal to pay OT for positions that should be paid OT - only eventually changes with threats of legal action

      Advice to Management

      give better benefits packages, increase salaries to industry standards, count previous work history with other companies towards years experience, stop trying so hard to be diverse because you're becoming racist/sexist, stop denying OT pay to roles that should be paid OT according to the FLSA

      I worked at Dominion Energy full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Friendly colleagues. Newer construction efforts to upgrade old buildings.

      Cons

      Old fashioned culture. High school club mentality. Strong nepotism. Technology is antiquated. Upper management and leadership are less educated than most new employees coming in from external corporate environments. Mom and pop shop mentality. No accountability or leadership in departments, much falls through the cracks. Hiring process is bad, with minimal training in the industry, lied to in the interview process,...

      Advice to Management

      Annual surveys of upper management behavior are given to employees in all locations and these issues are reported and nothing is done to correct the problems stated above.

      I worked at Dominion Energy

      Pros

      Good pay and benefits with flexible work schedule. Management is easy to get along with and the people there are for the most part great to have as co-workers.

      Cons

      Company pretty rigid and not easily swayed on new ideas. Promotions are unheard of unless you are part of the inner circle.

      Advice to Management

      Be more interested in the talent pool and rewarding that talent.
