    I have been working at Dominion Resources full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Benefits Package is outastanding, Safety is held to the highest priority and the work environment makes it easier to spend five days a week there instead of home.

    Cons

    The sick leave policy doesn't make a lot of sense. After you obtain 1200 hours of sick time, you are no longer allowed to acquire anymore. You also may not use any more than three sick days in a quarter of a year without use of FMLA.
    You are required to work a full 16 hours within a 24 hour period in order to qualify for 8 hours of rest. For example, if I work from 0700 to 1530, and get called in to work at 2330 and work until 0700, I am required to work for the rest of the day because I have only completed 15.5hours of work in a 24 hour period and have not earned 8 hours of rest.

    Advice to Management

    Be apart of the team instead of a sovereign being over it's subordinates

    I have been working at Dominion Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is so nice, and the atmosphere is so proffesional and courteous. If you can get on direct, its a great career path. I would say 75% of the workforce will be retiring in the next 15 years, so if you can get on and stay on till then your set!

    Cons

    Getting on direct is near impossible. The waiting list of drafters with engineering degrees, as well as designers who have been contractors for twenty years waiting to go direct is long, at least in the fossil and hydro engineering department.

    Also, if the work your assigned to is file management, its mostly pdfs, and that can get very boring.

    Advice to Management

    Retire already!
