    I have been working at Enthone full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Focused energetic company, lean manufacturing, challenging fast-paced work environment and decent margins on product catalog. Benefits are excellent but costly, the workforce tries hard and generally works well together to accomplish goals.

    Cons

    Lack of management support, lack of cohesive structure, under-staffed, and no room for error. The satellite facilities receive no support from upper management and the upper management mostly has no idea what goes on in the facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better management and retool job and management directives

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Global capability, very solid semiconductor market position, leaders in six sigma capability, sales training system

    Cons

    Underfunded R&D for a technology company, poor rating on R&D project funding and overall effectiveness due to too many projects and too few R&D resources, short term vision of management - lots of high level turnover, overly complicated operating systems to make any changes

    Advice to Management

    Increase R&D spend and commit to improving NPD effectiveness, manage for the long term, not only to the quarter and year end numbers

    I have been working at Enthone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is decent benefits are so so and you get a car allowance but the sales tools are horrible .

    Cons

    Horrible work environment no plans or marketing for future and very toxic and de-motivating culture and management insist on stick vs carrot

    Advice to Management

    Work to consolidate marketing efforts and focus goals on the region. Use team building approach and focus on the culture. People are unhappy because they are treated as robots there is no team work and the management focus on using the stick vs carrots. It's difficult to perform for a company 13 hours a day with no support and personal growth and team atmosphere

    Pros

    Benefits - Health care, 401K.

    Cons

    Low annual Pay across the board. Way, way, way ,way too lean of a company. Culture needs improvement. Lack of Leadership and strategy.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to grow, you needed to hire more people yesterday. Low wages will not attract the talent you desire. Take a good look at your company, and be realistic....if you have read Good to Great, then you will realize Enthone is in a doom loop.
