    I worked at Enterprise Automation full-time (Less than a year)


    EA has assembled and exceptional team of engineers and is continuing to grow. The team is the greatest strength of the company. Everyone trusts one another to be accountable, deliver a quality work product, and live up to the company’s core values. I have been lucky to learn controls engineering alongside EA’s veteran engineers. They have taken the time to help me learn and grow as a professional. I love working with the team to implement controls solutions for vital client infrastructure. EA also does a great job of keeping the project management, sales team, and engineering team functions separate, allowing the engineers to focus on the detailed project work without getting to involved in proposal writing and schedule management. However, these opportunities are available to engineers if they want to learn more about those aspects of the company. I have greatly enjoyed my time with EA and I would highly recommend the company to any engineers excited about a career in controls engineering.


    Due to the nature of the work, there can be periods of downtime with little notice. The company encourages you to fill your free time with valuable training, but those experiences rarely are as engaging as the normal work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow the team and maintain the high quality of the employees. Focus on rounding out the engineering team with more strong middle level engineers to take some burden of training new hires off the more experienced team members.

    Controls Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Enterprise Automation (Irvine, CA) in February 2020.


    A little different from typical 1on1 interviews I've had. I came in and as usual, you speak about yourself and ask you a few questions based off your resume. This is where it became a bit different. I was given a sheet of paper showing a triad with coding, mechanical, and electrical on each corner. They asked me to place myself on the triad as to what I believe best represents me and then the interviewer showed me where EA is on the triad. After, I was given another sheet based geared towards a behavioral question where I had to write out my though process.
