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

Pros

- Flexible Schedule
- Compensation (this is a pro on a case by case basis, but if you ask for it and understand your value, you can be compensated well)
- Meticulous Staff
- Open to ideas
- Is wanting to improve
- there are focus groups within organization that have opportunities for growth and innovation

Cons

- Lack of unified vision throughout organization
- If you ask for a better compensation and deserve it, you might get it.. but management does not take professional efforts to identify and reward talent
- Lack of consistent quality of employees hired and retained

Advice to Management

Learn to build your company from the bottom-up and integrate relevant groups under a unified vision

    I worked at Dewberry full-time

    Pros

    Fair compensation & benefits
    Wide variety of available projects

    Cons

    Hiring managers will do whatever it takes to ensure they get a potential employee, with no intention of keeping their promises.
    Skimping of technical staff in branch offices, yet still expect to deliver a product which is 120%.
    Day to day work schedule is very robotic with no social events throughout the year, except for Christmas.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that are qualified and act more ethically and follow the tenets that are set out.
