    I worked at Dominion Resources full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Pay, Bonuses, Coworkers and some Management

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime due to weather conditions.

    Advice to Management

    To maintain a level of support due to unforeseen situations in life, and to hire Management that is fair and truly concerned about their employees. Because everyone has different circumstances in their lives that they have no control over. I felt that it was 10% of managers that were a little self centered and tried to cause havoc with some of their top employees. Which caused a lack of trust and discontentment with the employees.


  2. "Overall Good Company"

    Cons

    Being a utility, it can sometimes be a bit bureaucratic

    Pros

    Competitive benefits, pension, medical, dental, 401k. Vacation, sick time, dependent care. I like that you're also given 8 hours to volunteer how you choose.

    Cons

    Communication is not always complete. Evident in merger with Questar Corporation. Employees left in the unknown for far too long.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees of plans and the overall picture sooner.

    Pros

    Good Pay, Tuition Reimbursement, Good Benefits.

    Cons

    Prejudice, it still feels segregated between races, Management and Union is always an problem, Work/ Personal life balance is horrible, Overtime is ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Award those who deserve it, not those who you "like".

    Pros

    Good culture. Most depts have room for advancement. Makes you work hard and learn a lot. Great benefits and pay.

    Cons

    Some people are moved or hired based on who they know then actual skill.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and promote those with the skills. It hurts more than help when the wrong person is put in a seat.

    Certain people have a negative mentality, but it seems like it can be based on managements approach to fixing issues that arise.

    Pros

    Stable employment, decent benefits, tuition reimbursement, decent pay, active volunteer program & opportunities

    Cons

    At least in my area, all employees were given the same % "merit increase". It didn't necessarily pay to be an outstanding employee. Some employees were able to abuse the sick policy with little consequence.

    Advice to Management

    Base raises & promotions on actual merit. Do not give the same percentage increase to someone who goes all out for their job as you give to the employee that just shows up.

    Pros

    Big company with lots of family connections.

    Cons

    Unethical hiring practices, yearly declining benefits, unqualified individuals hired that increase cost of rehiring and retraining,

    Advice to Management

    Promote leaders not managers. HR needs restructuring and retraining, on ethical and fair employment practices.
