    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Great benefits. Good pay. Opportunity to advance. Everybody is on first name basis. Opportunity to contribute. Management has a vision and works had to advance the vision. Character is important to management.

    Cons

    It takes a while to really fit in. It is difficult to get much knowledge about projects unless you are assigned to them. Training and cross training could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    EDG is a great place to work and I miss it. Training program needs work.

    Too many upper-level managers with fragile egos

    Pros

    Good salary. After two years you earn three weeks' vacation rather than the standard two.

    Cons

    Don't get sick because sick leave accrues at a snail's pace. Principals place emphasis on being a Christian company with values and morals, but at the end of the day, they're just a poorly-run business where the almighty dollar is king. That's fine, but just own it and stop being hypocritical. Also, during slow times peoples' jobs are cut while the upper crust still lives high on the hog, spending money and living it up like they're Wall Street execs from the 80's. Revolting. Nepotism runs rampant as well, so if you're related to someone, good for you - job security and freedom to do as you please. This is not a company that's open to change, practicality, or stepping into the 21st century, but if you're a 'Yes' man, (and I emphasize the 'man' aspect), this just might be the place for you.

  3. Nepotism at its worst

    Pros

    They try to have an event for the employees once a month. The sodas in the vending machine is cheep.

    Cons

    The HR interviewer made insulting comments, like "they probably pay you that much to keep you happy...you are a well paid employee where you are". They lied about upcoming projects. They hire people for short terms. The average veteran I have direct contact with is less than 2 years. Within a short period of time they went from having jobs to concerning employees with possible layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    EDG has strayed from developing their people like they boast about in the interview. The interview process should have been a red flag that shows EDG doesn't train or keep up training on their employees. I have yet to see any training offered (safety, specific programs, code of conduct, ext.). Develop solid standard and stick by them. If you already have solid standards, then the ball was dropped on employee knowledge of them and where they are located.

  6. Good company with fair people and an opportunity to advance for those willing to do so.

    Pros

    Company management is fair and willing to give you a chance if you show that you understand what it takes to lead and appreciate that you need to know what you're doing before you try to lead. They appreciate your having a good knowledge base and will give you the chance to put it to use if you indicate an interest in doing so.

    Cons

    The company overall is pretty great but there are a few people here who think way too highly of themselves and their abilities. There are a couple more experienced engineers who expect respect no matter their capability or management style and a few younger ones that just seem like they should be given a free pass for showing up and knowing something. Not willing to earn their spot but rather demand it. Overall though the people are a big reason why this company is great.

    Advice to Management

    If someone is not really as good as they think they are tell them. It will do wonders for the individual and for the company.

    Pros

    Small Projects, No personal growth, No proper work distribution, Only two week of vacation even if you have 20 years experience. Stay away.

    Cons

    No grass root projects, All maintenance work type of projects, No technology and expertise in any field, Not a single in house programs or soft wares. Uses others programs. No training to young engineers, Just hires fresh foreign graduates who are not resident and uses them by paying very low salary with lie that we will apply for the resident card. No one should consider this company. Do not believe what they say in Interview.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of old racist and religious fanatics. Hire young energetic engineers with broad experience. Get better experienced people and get better projects. There are only few core people and rest are temporary. All the core people and supervisors treats others very bad. They consider them as a religious but they are ready to slash your throat.

    Pros

    EDG is growing unbelievably fast but they manage to keep that smaller company feel where everybody knows each other.EDG is also a place where if you show potential and work hard you can advance to where you would like to be. The pay and benefits are great and the office in Houston is conveniently located at the Beltway 8 and Westheimer. The other great thing about EDG that I have never seen anywhere else is the open door and approachability of management. When they say it they mean it here.

    Cons

    I have worked other places and there are no cons worth mentioning at EDG.

    Advice to Management

    Continue in the current direction with the constant upgrading of equipment and software and the monthly employee events.
