I worked at Dominion Enterprises full-time (More than a year)

Pros

excellent work home balance. good compensation, paid parking, good work environment, excellent training program

Cons

no opportunity to move up with in the company. I felt I would never get another raise. I was already at the top, and nothing to strive for.

Advice to Management

encourage your internal community by providing annual raises, make promotions possible.

    broken into so many smaller companies under one roof, a little unpredictable.

    Where is the excitement and where is the CEO presence?

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good entry level job for sales. Not too difficult of a sale considering you will be reaching out to endemic advertisers. Not that difficult to sell boat dealers or boat OEM's on www.boattrader.com or Cycle dealers on CycleTrader.com. Especially since almost half of it is paid through their OEM co-op program. The dealers almost have to spend the money. Where else would an OEM spend?? Dominion basically owns verticals in the powersports and marine industry. If you are unable to sell these dealers or OEM's with all of the mentioned weapons you should quit sales immediately. Great group of people. Lots of team building and a pretty good culture. Building is packed with cool down to earth people. CEO is a really good guy.

    Cons

    Low pay.... company very resistant to change. Operates at extremely low cost. Dominion is not very innovative and is always years late to market. Many of the senior managers were in the print industry and were automatically promoted to online presidents even though they had never worked for an internet company. High performing sales reps have caps on commission. This is not a cap that will you will find in your compensation plan, however; If you start making over 100k they will take accounts away or change your commission plan or even change your job. Middle managers make crap wages. Also in terms of their Real Estate properties Homes.com and ForRent.com are shrinking and getting out spent in the market place 10 fold by Trulia and Zillow. No real battle plan or investment to change this. Good talent is bailing on the company after years of frustration. I actually think top top level management is good but their judgement on hiring other managers is awful. If you have never been in sales then you should not be a SM. If you are a print guy/gal you just don't get handed the reigns of one of Dominion's internet companies. Not good decisions. Dominion has a culture of basically just doing what they can with what they already have. When they do invest in new initiatives it is not planned out very well and often hire people who have no knowledge of the business to run it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your troops on the ground and take care of your young talent. Play to win a championship... Don't just play to win a few games. Go for it. It would probably take 100 to 150 million to even make Homes.com viable in the marketplace again. Might be too late. A internet property is only as good as the amount of traffic it has all things being equal. Time to invest heavy and take risk or just sell the place.
