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

    Pros

    I have worked for Enviva over a year now and have to say it is constantly changing as it scales with its growth. The change presents an incredible opportunity for those that are career minded. They aren't afraid to make decisions and are very focused on the health and safety of the employee. Human resources has been a fantastic resource for nuturing career growth. They have been evolving over the past year, with a certain determination. The company holds quarterly meetings internationally to keep all employees up to date and encourages feedback from employees to help it make the best choices going forward.

    Cons

    Growth means constant change. As with any company you have employees at different levels of expertise, and experience in the corporate world. The hardest thing for an employee is to realize they are an important piece of the company's success. Then take that realization, and apply themselves as team players, recognizing that everyone on the team has their part to play, and are important as well.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay focused, and continue utilizing the quarterly meetings to keep everyone aligned with corporate goals. This is a great company.

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

    Pros

    Great forest conservation. Free food. Compensation is pretty good, just expect to give away your life for it. You will get experience to take to other jobs, not sure how many good managers are left to teach you however.

    Cons

    - Working with a cast of external consultants.
    - Inability to maintain a set schedule. Month end close seems to drag on all month long.
    - Most personnel are struggling to survive.
    - Achievements - this is an interesting one. The company loves to recognize nearly nothing anyone accomplishes. Except for a few favorites inside of the finance group, some of which dont work here any more.
    - We rely on people with a not for profit accounting background to establish an entire ERP system & controls. Not to mention allow IT to be wooed into buying a big flashy system that has provided very little value outside of consolidation abilities. (Even thats debatable.)
    - People in the field are replaceable, always. Very little respect behind closed doors. Some of us really do appreciate you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying and show a little integrity for the mess you have made. A little accountability would be awesome. The only value you follow is determination, to save money at full time employees expense and eliminate anyone that is competent enough to be threatening.

    I worked at Enviva full-time

    Pros

    I really didn’t find any “best” reasons to work for Enviva. Yes, they do offer “free” snacks mind you that’s not consider free if you are working 50+ hours a week without overtime pay.

    Cons

    Work hard all you want but nobody will appreciate it. There is no work life balance so if you like working 24/7 then this company is definitely for you but just remember you will not be getting any acknowledgement for your hard work. I have never seen a company this badly structured with so much of nasty politics. Also, It’s all about MEN!

    Advice to Management

    Respect and acknowledge your employees

    Pros

    Ha!!! The exit interview and when you finally GET OUT (I believe another review referenced this movie- minorities heed the warning)!!!

    Cons

    EVERYTHING! Take the advice of this review, and the last review posted, and run! This place is NOT worth the notch on your resume! I’ll say this and will exit: if you’re a minority, you’re LITERALLY not worthy of any kind of promotion to a power holding position or raise!! And if you’re a minority female?!? Ha, good luck! NO MATTER how experienced and educationally advanced you are comparatively to those around you, it makes no difference to them: you’re not worthy!!

    This place is just NOT WORTH it! They will try to attract you with high pay, but thats the devils money! You’re expected to sacrifice your personal life for the company with NOTHING in return! A great show is put on for prospectives during the interview process, then you get in and speak to the honest people in the company and realize you sold your soul for the little extra money they offered you over the other offers or your current company. You’ll literally work under people who in any other company would NOT be in the position they’re in, but they were offered the position because: 1) they’re a caucasian male and 2) the company won’t DARE hire someone who should rightfully be in the position because they will go against they’re (the company’s) will and try to show the company the correct way things should be handled, and they can’t take/stand that person because they want yes people!

    Tread lightly if you go against this advice and accept any offer at this company!

    Advice to Management

    It doesn’t matter, you’re not listening!

    Pros

    Fast Promotions, and an Okay pay for Newer Facilities

    Cons

    Newer Facilities tend to have Managers with no experience or are hired due to who they know. the hours you work and the way you rotate shifts every 2 weeks is rough.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees fair and with respect it goes a long way
