    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and everyone is very friendly and motivated

    Cons

    I started working in the oil lab at the same time that someone more experienced than me did with the same position and they were very standoffish. Things began to get worse when they were given more opportunities to learn and be trained, while I had to tend to the shipping department to make boxes constantly. I worked extremely hard to prove myself even at the simplest tasks and it became discouraging to me how unappreciated and overlooked I was.

    I had no desk or phone the duration of me being there even though I was promised it. I would stay in the admin office and the manager would come in sometimes, completely ignore my existence, and make the people in the office give me work to do. I enjoyed all the kind people who worked with me as a team but began to resent my job situation after a while since there was no learning or growth in my position.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire people then pretend that they don't exist and make them feel small and inconvenient. It's very unprofessional.


  3. "Great Place To Work!"

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

    Pros

    This company has been incredible to work for, I am proud to be part of such a talented group of individuals! Definitely a leader in it's industry. Pay and benefits are very competitive. The benefits are constantly being reviewed and modified to meet employee needs. In addition The fairly new President, understands the company and has made improvements, specifically with communication and integration of internal systems. He has a great approach with the business and the people that are the "energy" of the company. He gets it!

    Cons

    Honestly, the areas that required a improvement have already been addressed and methods and strategies are in place. For example, cross functional communication and new ERP. This is a motivated group that thrives to keep moving forward!

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for listening.

    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

    Pros

    The food is great with a variety of food to chose from everyday and great people to work with. Overtime is encouraged.

    Cons

    Very old way of running a company. No room for growth. There is no structure in the Lab. Management lies about what your assignment will be. The administration roles are slaved with very low pay. Would not recommend working in the lab whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees.

    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.

    I worked at Doble Engineering Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Doble has been a good employer, until recent economic and personnel changes have diminished that.

    Cons

    Recent reorganization and the recent economic climate have resulted in small downsizing and noticeable "belt tightening". More emphasis has recently been placed on overseas resources, justified by it being an "international" company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees well, for in them is your future.

    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.
