Drum Roll Please, the Top Ten Reasons to Work at Dominion are…
We recently asked our employees to provide their thoughts on what makes Dominion Consulting the best company to work for. Each employee received an email from our anonymous survey provider, TINYpulse, that included this question about corporate culture. Our purpose in asking this specific question was to find out what people really looked forward to about work. Having this type of information allows us to focus on maintaining a great corporate culture.
Here is what they said:
#10 Company Events
Our team outings are must attend events! …. No, not because they are ‘corporate required’ but because they are always a good time. Here are details on a few of our upcoming events: Our team picnic for employees and families was this past weekend at the National Zoo. We had a private space near none other than – the awesome Great Cats! It included local BBQ, Carousel Tickets, Moon Bounce, Face Painter, cornhole, and even – a snow cone cart! Additionally, our next bi-annual employee event will be at the Nationals’ stadium, where we have rented out the Bud Light Loft. Activities will include: speed pitching, mascot appearances, and a tour of the ballpark. To read more about our awesome approach to quarterly meetings, here is our post: Fear Not Our Corporate All-Hands Meeting.
#9 Community of Practices
Our Software Developer Community of Practice (CoP) is a group of our team members interested in coming together to learn and share technical development information. Discussions include emerging trends, new software development tools, and prototype solutions. Specifically, a few of our most recent CoP get togethers have included topics, such as Docker and Angular… Oh, and of course – these also include snacks and beverages to keep the creativity and learning flowing!
#8 Snack Boxes
On a quarterly basis, each employee receives a box full of delicious snack goodies! The box includes everything from chocolate to nuts to freeze dried fruit to candy to breakfast cookies. The range of contents has something for every mood and craving. And trading snacks is highly encouraged to try to even further customize your snack selection. The fun filled snack boxes provides each employee a little box of happiness.
#7 Washington Nationals & Capitals Tickets
We have four tickets to both the Washington Capitals & Nationals. Both seating locations are in prime 100 level sections. They are the perfect seats for enjoying local sports games (or if people watching is more your thing, they’re just as good for that). These tickets are available company-wide and are opened to employees prior to the season starting. Each employee typically attends at least one to two games from each sports team per season.
#6 Our Office
Our suite is available for all team members at any time. Although, our most popular time is during the monthly in-office events, which include ice cream socials or parties in our parking lot (don’t knock it until you’ve tried it). Our suite includes high definition TVs (likely airing the latest sports happening) in café areas, a fully stocked fridge with sparking water and beer, granola bars, fruit, foosball table, darts, shuffle board, and a chalk wall! The office has a good vibe to it, which allows team members to provide excellent work product while taking much deserved breaks to enjoy the fun here.
#5 Employee Rewards
Who loves gift cards? Everyone… Great. Because we love to give them. On a weekly basis, we provide Core Value Awards to team members who are doing great things – such as earning certifications, impressing the clients, or doing awesomeness in the community. Also, for our work anniversary awards, each employee receives $100 for each year that they have been with the company.
Our leadership team is highly experienced and successful within their respective solution areas and industries. Our leaders follow the lead by the way you want to be led approach. We encourage the open-door approach to employees, which allows everyone to feel comfortable to talk to anyone on the team. Each is very distinguished in his or her own field but also approachable – making Dominion feel more like family than co-workers.
Our teams are making a difference. Employees serve in roles that are meaningful, such as to better secure our nation’s borders to keep everyone safe. Our federal projects span many agencies from the Department of Defense to the United States Department of Agriculture. We want folks to join Dominion for a career and stay for many years – whether or not on the same project/role as he or she initially started. We look for growth and movement across our employee basis as we expand our company.
#2 Benefits & Work Life Balance
Our benefits and work-life balance provide employees with much more than just the essentials to keep folks happy in and outside of work. Health insurance is at no cost to the employee for an employee-only plan. We have multiple floating holidays & holidays in addition to 20 days of Paid Time Off (25 days after 4 years of service). We have a variety of appealing benefits that include a tuition reimbursement and volunteer time off. And our 401k is at a 4% match on a 5% contribution – that has immediate vesting because we want you to stay here because you love it – not for an invested 401k match. And we know you will love it!
#1 Our People
Our employees are the greatest. Simple as that. Without them, Dominion would be just another faceless government contractor.
