    I worked at Envista Forensics full-time (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 (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. Paying for the cost of training was generous. Supportive of training to support career advancement.

    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).

    I have been working at Envista Forensics full-time

    Pros

    Working from home. Occasionally low work load with no impact on pay. Good PTO

    Cons

    Repetition of work can be difficult to deal with sometimes. Once the job is learned there are very few mental challenges and can be difficult to stay enthusiastic about the job.

    Advice to Management

    We need to have more company get togetheres. Employees can feel a bit isolated, the meeting in Chicago was great.

    Pros

    Clear and open communication channels across all levels and divisions of the organization. Extremely intelligent top management that continually looks to promote and grow from within; provide excellent guidance, mentoring and growth opportunities for eager, hard-working and motivated individuals. Company is in an incredible growth phase and the work we do is extremely interesting. Dedicated to internal staff development and this is paying dividends.

    Cons

    While employees who put in exceptional efforts are rewarded, this can be challenging/busy.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build the team from within, be resourceful with internal capabilities.

    Pros

    Management is engaged but provides lots of freedom to get the job done. Great team atmosphere with management and seasoned employees willing to help. Lots of variety and not tied to a desk. Focus is on customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    Due to our industry, many of the projects are last minute and urgent. This really isn't a con, but last minute travel is required. This job is fast paced but is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your are doing.
