    Pros

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

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

    I worked at Dominion Resources full-time

    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,

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