Manager (Current Employee) – Fairfax, VA – January 26, 2017
Dewberry is a great company to work for if you have multiple years of experience. If you are not an Associate, there are no bonuses. Dewberry promotes teamwork, but doesn't compensate the worker bees that contribute to the success of the company and/or upper level Associates.
Land Development Intern (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – July 6, 2016
Dewberry is a great company to work as various departments can be available in one area. I learned computer skills such as Autodesk AutoCad and Bentley Storm/Water Cad. In addition, I learned a lot of each municipality and city differs from one another.
productive and friendly environment to accomplish your goals.

Project Manager (Former Employee) – Fairfax, VA – November 19, 2015
The co-workers are the best part of this company. They make up for the lack of support from management tolerable. This company is very top heavy---which wasn't always the case and its sad to see that its come to that.
Emergency Management Specialist (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – July 9, 2015
Tasks included: Scheduling inspections for affected homes to assess damages from Hurricane Sandy such as finding unsafe amounts of lead or asbestos containing materials; Uploading data collected from Lead and Asbestos Reports onto a case management system to track progress Utilizing a switchboard phone system to handle a high volume of telephone calls in order to assess clients’ needs; and Proofreading and editing Lead and Asbestos reports before entering data into case management system. It's a very lax work environment as long as you get your work done. You get your own work space and computer. You make your own schedule and the pay is hourly; I had a part time position so I was able to come in at any time as long as it was between 8am and 5pm from Mon - Sunday and complete up to 30 hours a week. Co-workers are very friendly; the environment is very professional. There are copious amounts of paperwork that you must process accurately and efficiently.
Free coffee; job location is near a variety of restaurants and stores
Contract Construction Inspector/Project Engineer (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – February 4, 2015
Emergency Management. Please let applicants apply.I performed field services for FEMA hurricane disaster management on Louisiana Gulf Coast. Involved numerous assessments and monitoring, including public and private property assessments; demolitions, salt water damaged tree removal DR 1607, DR 1603 Hurricanes Rita and Katrina.
I learned a lot at Dewberry in my field of work, and gave me the work experience I needed and involve myself in. It gave me the opportunity to work with a team, on an individual level, and on my own to develop ways to better myself and the way we worked. However, management seems a little sloppy. While I was expected to be temporary, the way it was handled was poor and was essentially laid off without being told so. While the main project was coming to a close; they told us to find other work within the office -- but no other projects were in line leaving many of us stranded.
Overall it is a fun place to work even though the compensation is not competitive compare to other organizations
Project Accountant (Former Employee) – Fairfax, VA – August 4, 2014
In this position I learn how to review contracts, PO, mod, etc. and jobs set up and to billing clients on a monthly basis. The hard part is to get project managers to submit their invoice proofs on a timely manner.
Worked extremely long hours which is preferred when working on the road.
Assessor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 30, 2014
Performed intensive assessments of damaged homes and estimated repairs required for habitability requirements. Separate calculations from Xactimate sketches were made to differentiate actual storm damage, previous repairs, new repairs, deferred maintenance and neglect. Worked with a cohesive group of talented individuals with a very wide range of background from all over the United States.
Good pay, good people, but can suck the life out of you
Technology Solutions Coordinator (Current Employee) – Winchester, Virginia – January 13, 2013
Depending on your position you can work a lot of overtime although they pay for it which is nice. The contract work can be stressful and there are ridiculous demands at times. Overall, not bad benefits and a good experience.
