    I worked at Dominion Enterprises full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked at Dominion Distribution, which was once a subsidiary of Dominion Enterprises. The pay and benefits were okay (though could be a little better). I really liked the fact that the goals were very clear and consistent. The best part about working in Dominion was the fact that the management allowed a lot of freedom and leeway. You were given your goals and you had the freedom, responsibility and discretion to accomplish them the best way possible. It was a very empowering experience and showed trust in employees. I also liked the fact that there was great work life balance within the company. There wasn't a lot of overtime, and the management would often allow us to go home early on the last day of a week before the holiday. I felt that they valued their employees in how they respected our time and trusted us in our responsibilities.

    Cons

    The pay and benefits, though okay, could have been better. Also, there wasn't a lot of room for promotion or lateral transfer, at least in the city I lived in. Another part of the job that was problematic was the fact that the department of Dominion I was in was slow to adopt new technology. Because of that we couldn't compete with other marketing companies in my area. As a result the profits would go down and this would result in downsizing and a lot of layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    I enjoyed the freedom and responsibility of working in Dominion. My only suggestion is to invest in better technology to make Dominion more competitive with other marketing businesses. Also, the pay and the benefits could be a little better.

    Stop hiring folks if you know you're selling the entire company , it's selfish and unethical
