    The company atmosphere is amazing. All of my colleagues are like family. Management takes the time to make sure you are provided with the time and material to train and develop professionally.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than most companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep reading the yearly employee survey and improving the over all corporate atmosphere.

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

    Pros

    Cool industry and why I got excited about the role. Parent Company is Hands off.(good and bad for the Marine division). Solid group of co-workers.

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking. Marketing sort of runs things for the President who is in another country.
    When I talk to our customers, they tell me how we are perceived as not listening to their needs, and we(Marine) thinks we can do anything we want. They are right, and that is what we are told. Every problem I try to solve for our customers is blocked, unless there is significant dollar for dollar return. No concept of helping he customer because it is the right thing to do.

    Advice to Management

    Stop responding to the negative reviews asking us to reach out and talk, because the belief is there will be repercussions. Stop soliciting positive reviews, just improve the culture. Local leadership is needed for a workforce out size.

    I worked at Dominion Enterprises (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent coworkers: Many were very hardworking, conscientious folks willing to go the extra mile.

    Cons

    Terrible benefits (except 401K was pretty good).
    Management failed to lead, and then blamed those they were in charge of. Upper management (I mean the very upper management) needs to look at the areas of failure and hold the managers from the VPs on down accountable. When you have good people, that work hard, and you take advantage of that and still fail, that is a leadership issue, not an employee issue.

    Advice to Management

    Hold VPs accountable for the failures they oversee. The answer is not always, if ever, to replace the grunts on the ground.

    Pros

    The people here are great. DE has done a great job building a good culture and family environment. Employee development is a high priority and they do a great job of providing resources for you to lean, connect and grow. If you want a career and not a job - this is the place to be!

    Cons

    I would love to see a more creative environment for all of the core businesses to interact. We are missing out on some good collaborative juices and interaction.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your ear to the street and keep listening to the employees. You have done a great building an great culture off of employee feedback and recommendations. It's great to be heard!

    I have been working at Dominion Enterprises full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment. Able to work from home when available. The work/life balance is good.
    They do have a decent insurance package.

    Cons

    Completely behind the times in both thinking and technology. No sense of urgency in any phase of business. Completely content to trudge along. Only focused on bottom line numbers and will not put any effort into improving the business.
    Only way to get ahead and advance is to either be "grandfathered in" or kiss the right behind.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to employees and people "on the front lines" and not just stroke each others egos. Take some pride in the business and stand up for growth. Don't be SO afraid of going against the upper level management.
