    I have been working at Essintial Enterprise Solutions full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I've been with Essintial Enterprise Solutions for almost two years. Although everyone's experience is there own, I can truly say that working for this company has been a extreme pleasure. Working at Essintial has allowed me the opportunity to grow and thrive in a career that I enjoy.

    Cons

    In all business there are downsides. Essintial manages to keep the employees first, and that very important when running a business.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to Promote from within. Those who truly care about the company. It will keep it intact for years to come.

    Pros

    There are some great dedicated hard working indivuals with morals, then there the rest.

    Cons

    No QA No training Raises are few and far between Poor work to life balance Forced to work weeends and holidays Poor health care with high premiums and deductibles. Every October to March are layoffs due to poor money management. I could keep going but that should be good enough.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and they will take care of you. Stop holding things against employees from years ago, move forward.

      I worked at Essintial Enterprise Solutions full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      I ended up working for Essintial Enterprise Solutions through a merger...... pre merger was a great job, after merging with the east coast company to form EES was the worst group of management I have ever worked with.

      Cons

      Management from the top down does not have a plan to grow. Management fails on decisions and moved on up the ladder after failure. Call Center leads cannot explain procedures to accounts that they are the leads for. Garnering technicians to go on site through Field Nation platform to perform on site work representing Essintial but technician has no connection to Essintial so on site work can end up pretty destroyed. Pre...

      Advice to Management

      Either acknowledge you need help with your position and promote accordingly or find yourself a new career because once EES closes the doors there will be nothing for a group of management and leads who ran a company into the ground.

      I worked at Essintial Enterprise Solutions full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Enjoyed working with co-workers. Able to work remotely

      Cons

      Very poor Executive Management. No pay increase in over 10 years.

      Advice to Management

      A service companies product is there employees. You need keep your most experienced and knowledgeable people. Essintial seems to let those people go. I was released with over 20 years of service for the reason of decline in business. There were 3 new people recently hired in my department with less experience and knowledge. If this company wants to grow and be successful, they need the most talented people on the team....

      I worked at Essintial Enterprise Solutions full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Ability to work from home / virtual.

      Cons

      1) Uninformed Leadership 2) Use of industry trending tools are non-existent 3) Leadership team experience is primarily leveraged from prior roles within the company. No competitor or industry best-practices employed. Rather, decisions/solutions are based on Essintial only analytics which extremely poor and highly inaccurate and do not represent REAL WORLD data. Thus, wins/losses/program P&L tend to be very ambiguous....

      I worked at Essintial Enterprise Solutions full-time

      Pros

      Work when needed. Not the best work, but its work.

      Cons

      They thrive on NCR. Big money maker for them. Known them for years through Field Nation. They call you constantly asking you to take on assignments with NCR. NCR is not good either. Got asked to work for Essintial and I accepted it. Seemed like a good idea at the time, but soon thereafter I come to find out that the person I was working for was very immature. Told you that you belong to them and not to take on any...

      Hire real leaders. Hire more personable people that know how to communicate. Less conference calls unless it is a dire emergency.
