    Pros

    Great staff, easy to work with and very helpful. Pretty great internship and it helped in a lot with future employment. Great atmosphere. I a lot of interaction with management.

    Cons

    Sometimes I did not have a lot to do, which is understandable as just an intern. Must be able to interact easily with people (not very hard there) and ask for more if you need more.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. It was very great working there. I would not change a thing about my experience with Enerfab.

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

    Pros

    - Great group of people to network from
    - Great co-workers
    - Possible room for advancement

    Cons

    - Apparently underpaid
    - No clear direction of what they want from employees
    - Old company wants to stay in its old ways

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to learn new ways to gain advancement in the field and office. Staying on the path of being this old company isn't going to work. Treat employees better and the ones that actually work. Listen to the employees, not just a select few. Help younger employees learn the tricks of the trade instead of being threaten by them.

    Pros

    The company treats their customers great, and that's about it.

    Cons

    Low salary, they use the flexibility to make you feel obligated to work overtime. Very stressful. Joke of an IT department can keep the work stations running smoothly. No professional training or development.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, quit being selfish.

    Great working enviornment
    Great people to be around.
    Had a great boss that seemed to love his job.

    Gave me simple tasks that a toddler could do.
    Had to sit and stair at the wall with the lack of things to do.. probably because i was an intern

    - Constant turnover across multiple positions

    Advice to Management

    - This company is going to fail due to its inability to retain good employees & as a result will be a cancer to the rest of the office.

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

    Pros

    Direct leadership, (no longer present) was solid, and the team put together was the best around.

    Cons

    Bonuses promised were never delivered. C level management consistently make poor, and clearly self-interest based decisions that have negative rippling effects across the company. IT was considered a disposable commodity, not a partner. This led to multiple failed initiatives, a complete lack of policy and procedure, and little to no innovation. This continues to be the reason the organization can not grow, as they refuse to learn from these mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Base your bonus structure on values that drive success in the business, instead of incentivizing self centered behavior. Bring in business consultants to evaluate your operations throughout and be prepared to make big sweeping changes. And be prepared to significantly increase your technology spend to compensate for previous technology based decisions, as you have now moved this function outside of your organization.
