    I have been working at Dominion Resources full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Dominion Resources as an intern

    Pros

    Flexible with the work schedule, lots of intern events (meetings with executives from different departments, tours around various Dominion facilities, Family days, volunteer service etc), friendly work environment, competitive pay based on your grade level in school, on the job training in various things, big emphasis on safety

    Cons

    They don't give the interns a lot of actual work to do, it is mostly you shadowing the people in your group or shadowing people in other departments. There is also not a lot of ability to collaborate with others, at least not in my experience; people rarely leave their cubicles except to go to the bathroom or do various other things. I heard people in other groups talking through the cubicle walls though, so there's that.

    Advice to Management

    Make more opportunities for your interns to gain more experience through work/shadowing other departments

    Pros

    Co-workers are extremely friendly and helpful. A great place to work all in all. The company encourages moving around within in order to find a position that fits you.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    High pay scale, flex working hours, stable work, company actually cares about employees, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Some days involve big drives in a dominion vehicle. Some people don't pull their weight. Sometimes communication on projects isn't good

    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

    Pay, Benefits, Opportunities, Safety, Educational, Training, Pension

    Cons

    Sometimes staff expectations are slightly too high, but only slightly.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't give advice to management in a blanket statement, it's made up of individuals.
