    Pros

    Enaxis Consulting is a great place to work if you are in a Consultant/Analyst/Project Manager or essentially a Management Consultant with a background in IT, Telecom, Process and Organization Change Management, Program and Project Management, and or Outsourcing Advisory. Enaxis Consulting is a great place for growth and development, opportunities to work with/consult Fortune 500 companies, and contribute to meaningful projects while enhancing the organization itself. Enaxis welcomes ideas and promotes knowledge management in a way that fosters growth and a team environment!

    Cons

    If you are not working within the organizations key revenue producing fields, the opportunities are limited.

    Advice to Management

    To allow everyone an opportunity to grow. The employment relationship is a two-way concept, what the employee can do for the company AND what the company can do for the employee.

    "Very negative work environment"

    Pros

    - Small firm, gets to know everyone, rather than just being a number
    - Excellent coworkers
    - Interesting projects to work on

    Cons

    - During economic hardship, decided to cut people's salary by 50% but still expecting them to be happy and put in 45 hrs a week. Meanwhile, one of the owners was buying a new 5,000 sq ft house in Bellaire City.
    - Extremely political. Promotion/project placement are based on whether the leadership likes the person, not the capabilities.
    - Cheap. Terrible/non-existent internal training and no external training offered (unless you are well connected).
    - Very negative work environment where management only pretends to care about the wellbeing of employees. Have heard the owner said: "we pay them enough for them not to complain."
    - Pays at 40hr/week but expects everyone to bill 45hrs a week to the client. The "up to" 10% bonus is suppose to compensate for the extra hours, but management finds any reason not to give it out. Examples include taking vacation/sickness (counts against total utilization if you take time off), not on a project, or that they just don't like you.

    Hostile work environment where someone might yell at you for little reason. Or be extremely nice and then turn around and back stab you. Basically, in order to work/survive the place, bring in your own project or kiss up to the leadership.

    Pros

    Smart people on teams, interesting clients and projects

    Cons

    leadership has a tendency to 'avoid' bad news to staff, making things worse instead of facing them directly

    Advice to Management

    Keep things simple and fix interal processes as you grow the client base

    Pros

    I like the people at this company, they are honest, smart and fun. The company is growing, so as expected there are growing pains, but if you do your job well they appreciate you and you know it. I think the management team is very fair, if you have a concern or an idea, they listen and act on it if they can. The management team is making lots of changes, including adding a ton of training that anyone can attend. They also have happy hours once a month, a holiday party, and other family friendly events. Not sure why the folks above don't think there is enough communication, at the monthly all hands meeting there is almost TOO much communication, as the meetings go over an hour sometimes! They tell you all about the revenue, goals, new clients, etc.

    Cons

    Smaller company so they don't have the perks of larger Management Consulting firms. They also ask for an average of 45 hours a week, but I know for a fact that big consulting firms expect MUCH more than that.

    I have been working at Enaxis Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Good client base - good for making contacts
    * No/limited travel (rare for consulting)
    * Do your job, keep your head down, and you will be left alone

    Cons

    * Low pay for industry / owners getting rich
    * Bonus plans are weak / benefits the owners
    * Like most places, very political

    Advice to Management

    * Re-evaluate industry standard pay
    * Just be honest and admit what you are (pimps that pimp out consultants) instead of a pretend "family" where wealth is distributed evenly

    I worked at Enaxis Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Contract opportunities with Houston's oil and gas players. Good place to start your career if you're undecided about where you're going

    Cons

    Most opportunities are staff augmentation. Bonus percentage is not 10% as pitched if you ever take a day off. Marketing processes still being developed, lack on internal synergies amongst staff, trust and a den of dishonesty and lies, catering to those who thrive in such cut throat back stabbing environments. Hire turnover rate, revolving door, most people just stay for a short while then leave.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp internal ethical practices, marketing, pay, training and retention. Perhaps hiring a consultant company to identify and assess why people never stay and execute their recommended changes.

    Pros

    Fast growing, small so lots of opportunity to get on board and advance. If you are someone who likes working for very large companies, don't work here, as this is more like a fast growth entrepreneurial environment. Also fast pace, lost of ideas floating around, lots of changes (which I like) but isn't always easy. Good people who are really smart and driven.

    Cons

    Growing pains...people can be gossipy but I think that is true anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    operations needs to be expanded, need better 401k matching.

    I have been working at Enaxis Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Incredibly talented co-workers, tenured with advanced degrees
    - The company is growing very rapidly with promotions from within
    - The office is in Greenway Plaza (30th Floor) with a great view of Houston
    - Clients typically include Fortune 500 and 100 companies, rewarding work
    - Great incentives with profit sharing, stocked kitchen, sponsored events

    I started with Enaxis Consulting a little over a year ago and since then have been on several projects for one of our oil & gas clients. The biggest change is having a locally based client and not having to travel every week. The work has been challenging and rewarding, there is always a senior manager or partner to provide guidance.

    The company is very supportive of in terms of reimbursing for certifications and core competency trainings. What really stands out for me is the collaborative company culture and support of one another. While the company is growing very fast, since I've been here the founding partners, Dhiren and Jonas, have always emphasized growing the right way and hiring the right people and not just growing for the sake of growing which really shows. Everyone is incredibly talented and SME's at what they do.

    Cons

    The speed of growth has been challenging but the company is making the proper adjustments by revamping communication tools and adding additional resources in the administrative and marketing departments.

    I have been working at Enaxis Consulting full-time

    Pros

    The majority of the company practices the principles of working like you own it but not working for the glory and supporting each other as a team. The standards by which you are measured are clearly laid out. Achieving them takes hard work but the reward system for the work also exists.

    Cons

    The company is growing fast which always causes some pain during the transition.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the rewards and expectations transparent and fair. Good people will continue to gravitate to you and gladly contribute their expertise and effort.
