    Pros

    Dewberry as a company is not bad. They seem to care about their employees.

    Cons

    PDPs are a joke. Moral in the IT Department is at an all time low and no one cares. It is every man for himself and only a select few are allowed to make any mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at your employees moral. Happy employees will go above and beyond.

    Pros

    Interesting Projects, Flexibility in work schedule

    Upper Management makes decisions on here-say and perception. Very little, if any direct communication.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your people and communicate directly with them. Stop operating on perception and try to understand the facts.
