I worked at EN Engineering

Pros

EN Engineering has the potential to take an incoming engineer/designer and train them well in most areas pertaining to the design of natural gas distribution and transmission systems. With time someone with a marginal amount of experience in the natural gas industry can improve skills and knowledge required to make the next step into another company. Many of the design engineers are intelligent and are good at what they do. The work environment between engineers and designers is positive.

Cons

The major con of working at EN Engineering begins and ends with the management. They have the tendency to steer the careers of their employees unlike any other company I’ve seen to date. If you let them they will perform on you what they call “Cross Training”. This is when they take mechanical engineers, put them into a civil department, and vice-versa for the civil engineers. Employees there to this date feel as though they are stuck in jobs they do not want to be involved in and have no visible prospect of getting out. Employees are hesitant to approach management with the fact that they would like to venture outside of what they are doing for fear that they will lose their job all together. If you do muster up the courage to move on something else, management will meet you with the philosophy of, “This is your job; take it or leave it.”

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more flexible with the path your employees want to take. When interviewing candidates, be specific and honest about all aspects of the position applied for. Work towards healthier relations with employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is too much work and responsibility piled onto the PM's. All of their time is devoted to phone calls with the clients and preparing estimates, leaving little time to guiding their team.
