      Smaller Size Company with a Fairly Bright Future

      Jul 8, 2021 - Distribution Engineer IV in Kennesaw, GA

      Pros

      This company is a great place to start out a career and even progress through mid-later stages of a career depending on what you value. The work culture is perfect, flexible schedules, and fairly competitive pay for 1-3 years of experience (I cannot speak for more than that).

      Cons

      Biggest complaint is the company's finances are odd, particularly ESOP. This company used to be an employee owned company with a stock plan, however they had to sell off (and use loans...) in order to payout the ESOP payments to people retiring. Employees had no say in this decision (probably for the best, otherwise Enercon would have laid off a ton of people). Regardless, huge red flag for me and sadly that was one of the reasons many had joined on initially. Raises are strange. Did not keep up with inflation. Bonuses are also non-existent for the majority due to the company being acquired by a private firm.

      Pros

      Flexible, positive, great environment. If you get your job done reliably, you are treated with a ton of professionality and respect.

      Cons

      They'll adjust incoming new hire salaries to market demand but then all the sudden the people who are doing the most will be making what a new hire makes. They do not give raises when you take a lead position; only on your annual review. With this company no longer being employee-owned with stock for people who stay, there's not much incentive to stay and take on more work when your salary increase is minimal compared to the work you take on. Good people will stay because they have a good environment - but then again, a lot will also leave, and it makes it harder on the people that *do* stay.

      Pros

      Decent salary for new college grads. You will meet and work with some really smart engineers. A lot to learn from the lead and senior engineers if they are willing to teach you and help you become a better engineer.

      Cons

      Here we go. Firstly, Enercon Services is no longer an employee owned company. A private firm has bought out Enercon in the beginning of 2021, and Enercon has to meet the other firm's quota that will change mid year screwing over the employees who have to work unpaid overtime to meet the $$ quotas. Second, the timesheet system is absolute garbage like others have said in previous reviews. I mean come on is this the best this company can do. TImesheets are more stressful than the actual work. You have to constantly beg for the hours it actually takes to complete the projects in a very tight deadline. Project deadlines are unrealistic. Management will constantly accept large projects when there is no manpower/talent to complete the projects in time. Always get thrown into projects with no resources or help and they expect 100% quality work with unrealistic deadlines. This leads to people getting burnt out fast and quitting. Mid-Senior level engineers do not stay with this company more than a year due to bad work politics and company culture. New college grads always get overworked. If you worked overtime and they don't give you the hours to charge, then you get told to absorb the "professional time". "Professional time" is your personal time and you don't get paid for this. This occurs every week, all the time. Work/life balance is not possible if you have to constantly work OT. Lastly, upper management does not care about the people working under them. Overall company culture is toxic.

      Pros

      Good people working alongside you, if you get teamed with the good ones

      Cons

      Management is completely detached from reality - budgets and schedules are unrealistic while the engineers are left to make up the difference. When this was an employee-owned company, at least the employees would see some of that profit. Now that the company has been sold (with no notice mind you), engineers are STILL overworked and required to make up for management slicing budgets and schedules for their pockets. The company evidently has the “curse of competence” mentality, I.e. the best engineers here are overworked and burnt out. Timesheet policies are abysmal, as mentioned in several other reviews, software is outdated because the industry also subscribes to an archaic mentality. And as someone else mentioned, the engineers get blamed for mistakes, even if you’re working under such harsh conditions. Engineers are just pawns to upper management. I have heard the term “professional time” way too often since working here.

      Pros

      They are very transparent about finical situations and the overall status of the company. This includes all of the underlying groups. Updates are given regularly in a way that is easy for everyone to understand. And they do seem to pay quite well.

      Cons

      Some of the groups are very hard to work in. And there are a good number of very high stress people which has a negative effect on the work environment. Plus, the software is extremely outdated, no one knows how to use excel effectively, and tracking project miles stones has just been problematic at best. I have only worked in one group, so I can’t speak to other employees comfort with their immediate coworkers. However, it is disorganized, stressful, with sub par communications from what I’ve work with so far. The work is also very boring. Plus, with the lack of templates and up to date software, means everyone spends a crazy amount of time preparing hand written calcs, then typing them in Word for a report. As well as preparing hand drawings, since very few people have access to CAD. From my experience, this is all very behind the times.
