    I worked at Enerflex full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Enerflex paid a good salary and had decent benefits.
    The atmosphere is very laid back.
    Work life balance is good.

    Cons

    I was disappointed with the lack of organization in our department.
    Very little formal training, be ready to learn on the job.
    They did not have many management layers so it way difficult to be promoted.

    I worked at Enerflex full-time

    Pros

    None really, at all, zero

    Cons

    No chance for advancement
    No raises or bonuses for 3 years
    Gossip mill like none I've ever seen before
    Management has no clue what is going on
    After Jerry F. left it was all down hill.

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

    Pros

    Enerflex has a very laid back atmosphere, and casual dress code. The manufacturing facility is extremely nice.

    Cons

    The morale in the company has been steadily declining since the market turned in late 2014. Between the layoffs and the employees that have voluntarily left, the company is hemorrhaging employees. This only makes the morale lower, as the remaining employees seem to have an ever increasing work load. The work life balance has been especially poor lately, and the pay does not reflect the increased workload and responsibility of many employees. As people have left, there is a growing sense of disorganization and a general lack of direction at the company.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to do something to address the low morale of many workers. Empower and encourage your leaders to hold team building activities. Leadership also needs to address the root cause of the poor employee retention experienced lately. There needs to be more emphasis on planning, especially on large projects. Poor performing employees, that repeatedly make mistakes that cost the company money need to be re-trained or removed from their positions.

    I worked at Enerflex full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The hours during the high oil prices
    The group of workers that become family over time
    The chance to improve on your skill set and grow
    Paid lunch while on night shift - changed in 2014

    Cons

    Management - Some are just bullies (meaning ripping your doc excuse right in front of your face)
    Write up for every little thing if you're not on their butt kissing side (being on the phone while not on shop floor, not following a procedure not shared to the group)
    Leadman only worries about their core group instead of being a brothers keeper that safety and Hr promotes

    Advice to Management

    There are leaders and some are just pushers in the shop floor. Workers will respect a hell of a lot more if they were with a leader in their group than just a pushy manager wanting things done even if cutting corners on safety.
