I worked at Dominion Enterprises full-time for more than a year

Pros

I really enjoyed the culture. We worked on cutting edge products and technologies. The people are fun, talented, and motivated. Bureaucracy was kept to a minimum. Communication was encouraged. As a software developer, training and tools are important. We chose our own computers. We were encouraged to purchase the tools we needed to make our jobs successful. Training was always available and sponsored by the company. I enjoyed working in downtown Norfolk. DE has a beautiful building with nice work spaces. Plenty of nearby places to eat and get coffee.

Cons

For me there were not many cons. The ability to work remotely from time to time would have been nice, but I don't think that is really a con.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work. I appreciated the common sense approach to problem solving. I like how each division is allowed to make choices that are right for the division.

    I worked at Dominion Enterprises full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Parking pass, free lunches, great kitchen/lunch area, nothing about employment unfortunately

    Cons

    Management sold us on the premise that the company was solid gold and that the future was bright at dominion enterprises and homes.com. 8 employees quit within my first two months at homes.com. Was told that they had budgeted for 20 more account executives shortly after hire! The company decided to do a force reduction just before thanksgiving. Got rid of all the new hires and 3 managers. In total 15 people were let go and the kept 11. I couldn't believe they brought up the (non compete clause) after they let all of us go! Unreal!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know your budget, never hire new people and let them go within a couple weeks/ months just before the holidays, that is unacceptable
