    I have been working at Doble Engineering Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working at Doble for 7 months now and it's a great company to work for. There is much information sharing between departments and we all work together as a team to ensure our customers have the best possible experience with our products. The pay is very good as well as the benefits.

    Cons

    Some business production tools are antiquated, but Doble is in the process of updating those, so there is not much to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving in the direction we are heading.

    I worked at Doble Engineering Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    moderately good work / life balance, profit sharing after about 10 years of service can account for plus 10% to annual salary.

    Cons

    the salary non-exempt category tends to catch it the neck, they rarely met the obligation to compensate for un-paid hours worked.

    Advice to Management

    newer, (cheaper) employees without the proper background may save money, but they won't get the job done

    I have been working at Doble Engineering Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very interesting job with co-workers who are willing to assist when needed. Doble has earned the respect of their clients who depend on the technical expertise of Doble personnel.

    Cons

    Training and communications could be better. People leave and notice is not provided to coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the "old Doble" people as they are the ones who help make this a great and well respected company. Review travel policy personnel who spend a lot of time away from home. The new president has not been in the position long enough to evaluate.

    Pros

    Great culture and amazing colleagues. Relaxed and dynamic atmosphere, lots of opportunity to grow and advance your skill, fun and exciting projects.

    Cons

    Health insurance benefit is below average compare to other company in this State, probably its because parent company is in St Louis.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and if possible do something about health insurance.
