Welcome To The Enaxis Family
It’s common for consultants at large firms to feel underutilized, or stuck in narrow or accidental specialties. This, combined with the feeling of not being able to make an impact on the firm of such a large size, can be uninspiring for some people. We know because we’ve been there.
This desire to do more, combined with a passion to excel, helped inspire us to create Enaxis as a different kind of firm… where teams succeed and individuals thrive.
Diverse in who we are, how we thinkBeing part of the Enaxis team means working alongside exceptional colleagues who are diverse in their backgrounds, specialties, and experience levels.
A key motivator for consultants to join our team is the chance to work alongside both industry veterans and up and coming professionals, where raw skills as well as the insights of experience are routinely traded. In the course of this collaboration and mind share, the team brings out the best in each other.
Life beyond workWe realize that there’s much more to life than work and we encourage our employees to lead well-balanced lives with activities that are important to them. At Enaxis, you will find a variety of people with interesting stories–both personally and professionally.
Our consultants also enjoy the opportunity to work with and get to know exceptional people. We hold company events throughout the year where employees can get to know each other and their families, outside of work.
Enaxis Consulting provides competitive benefits to attract and retain the best and brightest employees.
We also provides a rigorous performance management framework that includes semi-annual evaluations and bonuses. The evaluations consider meeting previous goals and setting new ones. Enaxis Consulting employees are evaluated in three different, yet equally important categories:
Enaxis has created a system that constantly rewards their employees and also motivates them for both professional and personal growth.

I have been working at Enaxis Consulting full-timePros
Value offering to the client is immense. My colleagues are very high-caliber consultants, and it is a truly collaborative team. I have both reached out for and provided expertise in areas where a colleague (or me) felt their skills needed a boost. You are never out there alone on an assignment -- I feel like someone's got my back at all times. Training and continual education offerings are excellent. You really can grow here, if you have the right attitude and make the commitment.Cons
Senior management is brilliant and personable, but often too busy to understand an issue in full. Everyone is spread thin, possibly an effect of such a dynamic firm. I work a lot -- not sure I have ever achieved that work-life balance that is talked about... Expectations could be made clearer; onboarding process is good, but has not covered enough.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Approach growth cautiously. Do whatever you can to not lose the collaborative, family-feeling that keeps so many of us there. Also, maybe spend some time with each of your consultants on a regular basis to maintain that personal touch, take one of your employees out for coffee every day.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
