    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.

    I have been working at Enercon (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    1. Pay on time and flexible on vacation

    Cons

    1.No salary increase after 10 years devotion. Injuries are the most prize you can get.
    2.The training from local is really poor. Why cancel training from Gemeny.
    3. What do H&S officer contribute?
    4. Why office guys keep pushing us to work unsafe to reach their performance target. They get all the bonus. We got nothing but exhaust mind and body…sigh

    Advice to Management

    1.Be nice to those technicians whom dedicate 100% effort on their job. They deserve more salary and respect!
    2. Be generous to technicians. Make clearly reward and punishment.

    Pros

    Absolutely none, I would rather be unemployed

    Cons

    Absolutely awful company. The pay is terrible, NO training is given, just told to 'learn as you go'. There are no benefit packages in place. There is no such thing as work life balance, reward and recognition or appraisals. Everyone is set in 'enercon' ways with NO room for any change. An embarrassing company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Have trust in employees, look at competitors salary. Rewrite the whole organisation.
