I worked at Dewberry full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

This company does a great job of recruiting the best. They have innovative ideas for select departments within the company.

Cons

The company is currently management heavy leaving no ladder of growth for individuals starting at the bottom. Each Department within the company is different and should be valuated individually. Be careful, you may be interviewed by a whole department and then placed under one person to do a completely different job.

Advice to Management

Listen to those who work underneath you about company and personal needs. Inspire and encourage innovation.

    Cons

    It's a very conservative company, which can be a pro or a con.

    Advice to Management

    Get more creative with benefits package...consider adding a wellness program.
    Bonuses--we rely heavily on selling our services; consider adding a bonus for those who work on major, successful projects and/or client retention bonuses. You need to reward your employees more often for the results they generate.

    I worked at Dewberry full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good training for the entry level engineers, good people to work with and decent work atmosphere. Work/life balance is good. Technical expertise is available in the form of senior engineers.

    Cons

    Project managers not interested in employees' career growth. Management very self-centered. Basis for promotions is not clearly defined. Employees have to keep begging for promotions. Incompetent project managers are promoted easily.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the project managers are interested in their team members' growth.
