A secure place to work, BUT....
Non-Union Employee (Current Employee), Richmond, VAApril 26, 2015
Pros: Job security
Cons: Salary, Work-life balance
...Overall, Dominion is a solid place of employment, but many are left feeling overworked and underpaid, especially in the non-revenue generating service areas of the business.

There are also a good number of solid performers that are treated as afterthoughts by leadership simply because they don't fit into the classic management mold or are just excellent in one trade versus good in multiple areas. But that's probably most places in corporate America though.
