mixed bag
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  MissouriJuly 5, 2016
Good benefits, good products. Inept management, NO training or support. Sales goals are unattainable for newer employees. Read the fine print, they are a transition job at best. The lack of leadership will be their demise
Pros
Benefits, work/life balance
Cons
Lack of leadershipo, management, horrible training.

Being your own boss
Associate (Former Employee) –  Norfolk, VAJune 16, 2016
A typical day at work was enjoyable. I learned alot about the marketing and advertising business. For the most management was friendly and professional. The less favorable part of working with Dominion Enterprises is that change is constant which could result in loss of employment.. The most enjoyable part of the job was the location of DE in the heart of downtown Norfolk. Compensation and benefits competitive along with great employee appreciation and perks.
Pros

Cons
Position elimination

Good money to be made if you work hard
Marketing Leads Specialist (Former Employee) –  Norfolk, VAMarch 29, 2016
Majority of pay is commission based, so is not for everyone. Benefits are sub-par. Money can go either way (good or bad). Timeshare industry is very corrupt.
Pros
Money to be made.
Cons
None to be made if you're not motivated.

Exciting Online Advertising Solutions
Internet Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Norfolk, VAMarch 24, 2016
Measurable results for online advertisers. Daily effort and initiative toward acquiring new business opportunities for marine dealers including web site platforms; SEO; banner and classified advertising campaigns. The office environment was exciting and energetic, while focused on development and success exceeding sales goals. Management was anxious to assist and serve the team environment with group and one-on-one meetings and training. Coordinating sales presentations with the understanding that every "No" answer gets you closer to your next "Yes" was sometimes troubling. Yet with such a quality product and support, the "Yes" answer was that much more desirable.
Pros
Tremendous benefits package and an exciting work environment
Cons
Charge backs were poorly handled by management

Productive and Fun Workplace
Assisting customers (Current Employee) –  Tallahassee, FLJanuary 28, 2016
My time working at Dominion has been nothing but enjoyable. I have been able to learn and adapt new computer based and customer service training in a hands on and fast paced working environment. Coworkers and management are genuinely friendly, and dedicated to the success of the clients as well as surrounding employees. Everyone here is consistently friendly, compassionate and willing to help whenever needed. Not at all the typical office environment.
Pros
Free Food, Kind Coworkers, Customer Service Appreciation Week

20 hour days
Sr. Systems Administrator (Current Employee) –  Norfolk, VAJanuary 25, 2016
20 hour days are the norm when working within the ForRent company. There is absolutely NO compensation, not even a thank you for all the overtime worked, but you are expected at your desk for your 8 hour shift.
Managers and Supervisors have their favorites that are able to call their own hours and are left alone accordingly. Manager offer no direction for the employees, only ridicule.
The "open door" policy that HR recommends is only the fast track to get an employee fired.
This company does not recognize their employees hard work and going above and beyond.
The only time you see the CEO is when he wants the employee to donate to United Way.
Pros
Casual attire, paid parking
Cons
Poor managment, non-existent CEO, long work hours, no appreciation

Improving Their Culture
Ad Operations and Technology (Current Employee) –  Norfolk, VAJanuary 2, 2016
Overall, Dominion Enterprises is improving and innovating at an amazing rate when you consider who thrifty and budget-conscience the culture has been. Due to how many subsidiaries the company has, to rate DE would be unfair as each one operates as its own entity.

One of their particular subsidiaries is either one of their biggest revenue earners or possibly the biggest revenue earner. They have been close to being profitable as a subsidiary many times. Considering the high turnover rates in some of their smaller departments, the amount of resources used for on-boarding, background checks, salaries, vacations, and miscellaneous, they are constantly plagued with perpetuating new hires.

DE has been improving its company culture after a poor review from a former employee and it's evident in that the company slowly moving away from its conservative views to a semi-liberal view. This is not saying that the individuals themselves have transitioned, but the overall company culture has been now made aware that they are moving to a more liberal company.

Overall, my time at this department provided some technical work but not nearly as much as I have been accustomed in previous experiences. With that being said, I neither have bad or good feelings toward DE as a whole.
Pros
Some holidays off
Cons
Heavy workload with little room for promotions due to the small department

Overall a decent place to work, and I'd recommend to a friend.
REGIONAL SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Norfolk, VANovember 2, 2015
A lot of great people and a fun environment to work in if you consistently make your monthly sales goals. Great paid leave and benefits package. They offer numerous perks with a decent ability to move to other departments and/or advance.

While I was employed, there was a lot of turnaround, and at the same time, too many people who should have left or fired were allowed to stay longer than they should have been able to. At times, the sales goals were not reasonable with the products and territory we were given.

Management, listen to your sales staff more since they are the ones in the trenches and have a better understanding of what is going on with the team and with clients/products.
Pros
A lot of great people, a fun environment to work in if you consistently make your monthly sales goals, Great paid leave and benefits package, They offer numerous perks with a decent ability to move to other departments and/or advance.
Cons
There was a lot of turnaround, Many people who should have left or fired were allowed to stay longer, The sales goals were often not reasonable given the products/territory.
