    I worked at Envista Forensics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It was the privilege of my life to serve at LWG Consulting, briefly PTCLWG, and then, Envista. Bob Wedoff assembled an incredible team of highly talented people (just like you read about in Jim Collins Good to Great), and we all did what we do best. We built an incredible business in North America, built the leading business in Canada, built the only business in Latin America, and were in process of building an incredible...

    Cons

    There were no cons. Bob agreed with my strategy and provided the resources for execution. The only reason I left was because I wanted to be a good dad to my little 2-yr old at the time, and traveling 90% internationally/nationally was too much. Depending on what stage in life you are at, as well as what trade-offs you are willing to make, it can be the greatest opportunity of your life.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring talented people and let them drive the business forward! Now with the Cyber team firmly in place, the Danish Restoration team, expansion of the Canadian engineering group, there is a firm footprint to work on large-loss projects all over the world!

    I have been working at Envista Forensics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Interesting work, solid coworkers, company seems to be on good financial standing.

    Cons

    Disorganized, out of touch, and sometimes petty upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Organize and clarify policies. Company wide emails that come out of nowhere from various senior managers are often littered with typos and have a tone of all hands on deck to put out some previously unmentioned fire. Except the fire is never heard of again. It is difficult to manage the cumulative weight of all these little tasks on top of the already demanding core responsibilities of the job. Every time you add a new...

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Envista Forensics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They paid me what I asked for.

    Cons

    They have no ethics. They care more about what the Insurance Company wants them to say then what is technically or ethically correct. It felt dirty to work here, knowing that your impact on the community was making it worse instead of making it better.

    Advice to Management

    Stop telling your engineers what to write in their reports. Let me use their expertise and experience to opine on what can be validated and what is right. Don't use what the client wants as a validation for ignoring/compromising engineering ethics.

    I have been working at Envista Forensics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Everyone is friendly and ready to work. Good attitude about work and flexibility. Interested in getting the job done. Good work is recognized. Professional culture. Good at using technology to create a distance or virtual team. Normal benefits. Standardized, formal bonus structure for engineers and directly billable employees. Good customer focus in a reasonable, professional manner....

    Cons

    The salaries seem lower than that of competitors. While this is described as being due to the bonus structure, the effective hourly rate of the bonus structure doesn't really feel like the wealth is being shared; work beyond the fixed costs of compensation only shares about 20% of the increased revenues. Taking vacation time goes against bonus earnings.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Consider changes to minimize the effect of vacation time on the bonus structure. Be more prepared to share the benefits of additional revenues beyond the marginal costs of compensation. Look for creative ways to raise the utilization of any engineer without a professional engineer license (such as promoting certifications in related fields).
