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

    Pros

    Flex hours, PTO structure, flexible schedule. Only pros are basically HR-related.

    Cons

    Training is a joke, it's on the fly and you're just supposed to be proficient without any type of feedback. Management styles vary greatly between PMs, some overly and unnecessarily micromanage, causing unneeded stress. Promotions are not based on skill or work, rather on how long you've been there, who you know, or what your popularity status is. Too many cliques between departments, but that happens when everyone is so young. Events have been cut, raises are becoming less and less, promotions are lessening, people are being fired or quitting left and right, and employee morale is plummeting.

    Advice to Management

    1. Create mandatory standard training docs in each dept. Provide a learning curve for employees switching between clients or programs. Offer certificates or incentives to continue education.
    2. Have some sort of conformity between PMs and how they treat their employees. Some employees are miserable and wish they could work under others.
    3. Create a hierarchy system where employees feel they can work towards a promotion with some sort of raise (even if small), with some recognition for hard work. Something to separate the, fro, their peers who may not be working as hard as them but have the same title.
    4. Only minimal cost of living raises, cutting most events, and draining all the fun is going to really start hurting productivity the more you kill morale. Stop spending money frivolously on unwanted events and shake things up.

    Pros

    Self driven career path, challenging workload, flexible hours, multiple offices, Helpful co-workers.

    Cons

    Very little training, you have to be self motivated to learn. Workload can be overwhelming sometimes....but it usually isn't constant.

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

    Pros

    ENE offers very good Benefits

    Cons

    Lack of procedures makes day to day work difficult if you're just beginning your career in the design/engineering field and a little frustrating for seasoned designers/engineers. ENE has been working to improve this for years however with the company growing so fast it makes implementing processes and procedures more difficult.

    I have been working at EN Engineering full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great backlog of work
    PTO is nice
    Overtime there when you need it
    Depending on the office the type of work you do can vary and increase your knowledge of various clients in the Civil industry
    Great CEO

    Cons

    Disconnect from upper management and midlevel management
    When you become familiar with a type of work, you're pinholed into doing strictly that type of work
    Compensation for hardwork and dedication is no difference from that of other employees doing the bare minimum of work
    "Teams" aren't teams, usually 2-3 people doing the jobs of several people

    Advice to Management

    Restructure management
    Start looking at who your hardest working employees are and compensate them and make them want to do more
    Stop promoting those who do the bare minimum work but are socially connected to management
