    Pros

    None , Enercon is a SINKING ship!

    Cons

    Accepting Enercon's job offer was the MOST TERRIBLE CAREER MISTAKE I
     MADE! Enercon provides CHEAP and LOW QUALITY service to the nuclear industry by SLAVING poor off-the-school engineers. All employees know that the Company is on the verge of BANKRUPTCY despite the management's effort on proving the opposite! READ THE COMMENTS BEFORE JOINING!

    Advice to Management

    I don't wast my time advising them cuz they won't listen.

    Pros

    Good compensation, flexible schedule, paid overtime, great people to work with

    Cons

    Management exhibits extreme favoritism rather than rewarding high performers. Poor work life balance. No appreciation for hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Start recognizing and rewarding top performers. Change the trend of "the best always leave." I worked extremely hard and in the end, management showed zero appreciation. Deeply saddened and disappointed.

    I worked at Enercon Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work on complex technical projects (nuclear & non-nuclear). Opportunities to lead from within the division if you put in the effort and take ownership/responsibility of your work product. Benefits are excellent. Compensation is good at many levels/positions.

    Cons

    Communication between divisions needs improvement. The workload is extremely demanding (but ultimately worth it in my opinion). My compensation was lacking, but was due primarily to my immediate manager at the time I was hired...compensation was my reason for leaving.

    I have been working at Enercon Services full-time

    Pros

    Great people, organized better than most other companies (overall), salary is not too bad, get experience and network opportunities. ESOP is great when company is doing well, but very risky since you could lose a lot of money when company under-performs (Could be a Con if not risk tolerant).

    Cons

    Very stressful work environment with most projects you will do. It is very hard to ensure that your project is financially stable and on time when you have to do engineering and learn and perform project management duties, which is expected in this company (Could be a Pro if you are into this).

    Advice to Management

    1. Increase pay and benefits.
    2. Stop under budgeting projects by getting input(s) from people who will perform work.
    3. Start making accurate budgets.
    4. Stop creating levels of management if company is not doing well.

    Pros

    The people here are great (at least for the most part). There's a sense of camaraderie among your engineering peers. The pay is at least on par with the nuclear power engineering consulting industry, which tends to be higher than regular industry. The Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is actually a really good deal compared to your typical 401k matching, as long as you plan to stick around enough to vest completely (6 yrs). Gainshare bonuses are somewhat nice to see, but shouldn't be expected to make a big impact on your overall compensation. As far as the work itself, projects typically are long-term, which adds stability to your schedule, but they never seem long enough to squeeze the required amount of work into it. The company itself, though it hit a bump last year, has done exceedingly well year over year, and is reflected in the company's valuation (and stock price).

    Cons

    Yearly pay increases are fairly stingy, and you might feel like you're falling behind compared to new hires at your level (advice: negotiate a great starting salary). Holidays and vacations aren't as abundant as I had been used to. Only 10 holidays a year are given, and all vacation and sick days are lumped together as part of your PTO allotment. No 401k matching, but the ESOP makes up for that quite well so long as the company continues to grow. The industry requires lots of paperwork and processes due to the nature of the work, but they seem to continue to pile onto each other forcing most of your time spent on paperwork and compliance as opposed to productive engineering tasks. Management focuses too heavily on completing daily timesheets and hours must be requested from the PM which is manually entered prior to beginning the work . This is very frustrating, and takes time away from the task at hand. Advancement opportunities can be hard to come by, especially if you are forced to volunteer for an on-site assignment and are away from the main office for a year or more.

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of the spirit of the Nuclear Promise and work to eliminate unnecessary processes that hamper productivity. Also, re-consider the 9-80 work schedule.
