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.

    I have been working at Dewberry full-time

    Pros

    Promotes professional development by providing reimbursement for professional societies, educational/professional seminars, tests, licensing fees.
    Collaborative work environment.
    Good age mix in Fairfax offices.
    Opportunities for internal mobility.
    CEO is very personable
    Good reputation

    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.
