What are perks and other benefits like at Doble Engineering Company?

Pros

Super friendly and welcoming team culture Relaxed environment for the most part Benefits and perks package Company team effort- everyone is willing to help and offer guidance if needed Great learning experience for interns or college grads The chief is amazing and the food is good Interesting work The president is approachable and always a pleasure to speak with I’m never unhappy to go to work- yes I really did just say that Honestly great company and people!

Cons

Building is old but we’re moving soon to a much better building with new office supplies and materials included. Some of the jobs are required to be hourly which doesn’t make sense in my opinion for people who aren’t in the field and who have everyday office positions. The whole clocking in/out and tracking your time is super annoying.

Advice to Management

Keeping hiring young talent and growing them through your business.

What are some insights into the strategy or vision at Doble Engineering Company?

Pros

Only the brand name, nothing else behind the company. Please make Doble Great Again !!!

Cons

Since 1920 the company became one of the leader in power industry. BUT, since 2001, Doble struggles to provide innovative products. Doble prefers to purchase companies such Morgan Schaffer (old technology) , Manta (poor market), Vanguard, Doble Lemke (company shut down 4 years ago). BUT, they have not invented any innovative products such the competition like Omicron or Megger. You cannot overcome to your weakness by only purchasing companies.... you have to be innovative. If you are looking for a safe job, never apply to Doble. Look for much stable company like Omicron or Megger. Doble is more like a financial oriented company, held by its parent company ESCO. Of course, you will get a reasonable salary working with Doble, but you will never know if you are still with Doble tomorrow. From the New President ( who does not have any experience in Doble industry and making wrong decisions 1 after others) , to VP up to Directors, you will never get to have a proper strategy or direction within Doble. Customer Services is very poor, repair of products always comes with reliability issues. Doble Products are always having issues when delivered to customers in states. HR is very poor also by not providing a long term HR visions. Doble relies too much on their brand name. ZERO marketing ! The Doble Services Solutions is peanuts compare to world class companies such CESI, UL or even ELIA Grid... But it is not enough when you have competitors such Omicron or Megger providing world class customer support. Our HQ in Boston will soon move somewhere in order to sell our historical building. Doble needs a serious thinking about customers needs like Omicron or Megger. I could have wrote a much longer text, but I guess you get the overall picture. Doble is like a old company collapsing. Mr Doble's President, Please Make Doble Great Again !!!!

Advice to Management

Provide to your employee a safer job environment, and please listen to your customers.

From the New President ( who does not have any experience in Doble industry and making wrong decisions 1 after others) , to VP up to Directors, you will never get to have a proper strategy or direction within Doble.

What is the feeling of job security at Doble Engineering Company?

Pros

Decent benefits. A potentially good stepping stone to a better opportunity elsewhere.

Cons

Job security is poor. Poor decisions and missed commitments by the new CEO results in layoffs while “salary normalization “ potentially means little to no salary increase.

Advice to Management

Bring back the family culture of Doble’s legacy. Quit making so many org changes. There’s no time to mature and the industry and competitors are using the perceived instability to their advantage. Expertise in this industry is difficult to come by. Provide at least an inflation adjusted salary increase. Company Values have become meaningless as fairness doesn’t seem to apply. Doubtful that anyone thinks that a layoff is fair while being one of the most profitable companies in the industry. Especially by those that helped the company get there.

Job security is poor.
