    Pros

    Enviva truly allows each individual to grow in the company. Self motivated people with growth potential excel at Enviva regardless of education or background.

    Cons

    We are quickly growing company and we tend to have a fast paced environment. This is truly not for everyone who are used to sitting at their desk without the desire to embrace and overcome true adversity. I embrace the challenge and excel here.

    Job With a Purpose

    Pros

    Rapidly growing business that is having a direct and positive impact on improving the environment. Many opportunities for career advancement. Great compensation package!

    Cons

    Rapid business growth and pressure to meet customer volume demand creates a demanding environment that requires workers to have high personal accountability traits and "grit". I honestly don't see this as a negative -- but it does increase the difficulty of sourcing great talent that can handle the day-to-day tasks while developing the systems and processes to continually improve.

    Great place to work if you want to build and grow with great people

    Pros

    Enviva is a great place to work if you want to build and grow with them. It is a fast moving and fluid, growth company where you have plenty of opportunity to develop and build out solutions to help them scale for the fast growing demand for their sustainable, environmentally friendly fuel. If you are looking for a cushy, easy, boring job where you can hide behind the contributions of others - this isn't the company for you. However, if you want a challenging job at a growing company that pays well - and be surrounded by great people that are committed to reducing carbon emissions - Enviva is for you.

    Cons

    If you aren't willing to roll up your sleeves and work - and you only want to do the 1 or 2 of the same tasks over and over again - Enviva is not for you.
