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

    Pros

    Most of the people I worked with at Enercon were great.

    Cons

    This company doesn't care about their employees, they pay way less than average (which in my experience is typical for out of state employees who have offices in CA), and there is very little room for professional growth, especially for administrative staff.
