    Pros

    Great benefits (PTO, health), coworkers are awesome. Company has room to grow.

    Advice to Management

    No idea what happens at the top.

    I have been working at EN Engineering full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, if you need to leave early you can make it up or use PTO (depending on your PM). Average benefits.

    Cons

    Company is changing quickly. No longer cares about employees, or employee satisfaction. People don't know each other, people slack off but get rewarded the same as those who work hard. Annual raises are very small. Jobs are not secure, employees are disposable. People are being let go and quitting left and right for better opportunities and better work environments.

    Advice to Management

    New management needs to take a step back and see that some things were better before, there was higher employee satisfaction and people weren't leaving. We are paid much lower than industry standards, and the only way to get people to feel valued enough to put up with these continued changes is to pay them what they're worth.

    I have been working at EN Engineering full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Environment and people are friendly.
    Plenty of company outings to please employees.
    200 hours of total paid time off a year. (This is what makes most people stay.)

    Cons

    Promotions are base on time spent there and nothing else, and when they do come, the pay raises are negligible. They will pay you as little as possible as long as they can.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who are good at their job. Not just people who have been their for a long time. It demotivates people from trying to work hard.

    Pros

    Great Benefits - From insurance to retirement to PTO

    Cons

    Lack of training, Lack of organization, Lack of vision for career advancement

    Advice to Management

    Define Roles and Responsibilities. Create clear paths for growth in the company. Many people feel pigeon holed in their position.

    Pros

    Flexible Hours (9/80 or half day Friday)
    Great benefits
    Relaxed work environment
    Casual Dress
    Understanding management
    Salaried position that continues at an hourly rate when you work more. Some people can get 1.5 times their "salary" because of this

    Cons

    Pretty good chance for a ton of travel
    Some people end up in the field for months at a time working 13+ hours a day for 7 days a week
    Some of the technology that you work with feels very outdated and specific to this field

    Advice to Management

    Overall great job. Maybe creating more positions that are not travel-intensive might encourage people to want to work here, as that travel is a bit of a detractor. It is definitely a part of the industry, however.

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

    Pros

    1/2 day fridays, and PTO policy

    Cons

    Lack of organization, majority of experienced people including myself left due to hostile environment, lack of training and clear direction. After people left it just got harder and harder to be successful.

    Several of the projects had major quality issues, but instead of addressing the flawed system it was brushed under the rug.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the negative influences and strive for a better culture
