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

    Pros

    Making you a better person, both professionally and personally. They genuinely care for people as individuals to grow, and not just to help the company. enVista spends a lot of time to challenge you, but set you up for success in those challenges. They have incredible benefits as well. I am not sure about the other reviews, but in the past year, I have not seen anything to that detail nor have I heard about it either. The managers don't micromanage either; they want to give you tasks, and come back to you when you need more work (which there is plenty of). Work / life balance literally cannot be better, they have 'work hard, play hard' in their principles, and really push that. Rarely do you work outside of your normal working hours unless it is crunch time on a project (to be expected based on project demands).

    Cons

    Upping the free onsite massages to more than once a month would be nice.

    Pros

    Great company that invests in people, cares about their employees, and cares about their customers.

    Preach a lot about accountability. Make sure and know that going in. If you are able to do what you said you can do, you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    It moves fast there. Always new challenges and new opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication going to all levels even when you continue to grow so fast.

    I worked at enVista full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I began as a Supply Chain Consultant right out of college and it was an amazing experience
     - The position is very hands on, with a lot of face time in front clients
     - Placed in challenging positions, which helped develop technical, operational, and interpersonal skills that my peers from other companies were lagging
     - Perfect for those who want to travel and see the country [some clients are even international]. I was able to spend considerable time in big cities, such as New York City and Minneapolis, almost entirely on client dollar.
     - Managers are flexible and will work with you to help with work/life balance
     - PTO is respected. When you want your time, you are given it, no questions asked.
     - Very team oriented work environment

    Cons

    - Due to the industry, client engagements may require working some weekends. However, I was always compensated with my 'weekend' days later on.
     - If you do not like to travel this position is not for you

    Advice to Management

    - Between long client engagements, give consultants a few weeks at home before beginning the next project

    Pros

    Nice office in Carmel
    Company provide good hardware
    Very welcoming to new employees
    Both owning partners are smart guys that know their stuff

    Cons

    All about image and politics, become friends with the right people and you are safe.
    Somewhat ridiculous company culture, like the existence of the "Sustainable high performance committee" i mean, really?
    Does not encourage a healthy work-life balance
    CEO openly says that if you care about money you should work somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites

    I worked at enVista full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good job if you never had a job before here. Ignorance is bliss. If you never want to make more than $50K a year, this place is great. Offices are nice and the benefits are kind of ok. Not great..just ok.

    Cons

    They find a way to screw you on EVERY commission check. Let me say that again...EVERY comission check. You bring them the business and they will find a way to NOT pay you. The only people who make money here, are related to the owners or are the owners. Nobody stays at enVista long. Life is way to short. Find a good company that values their people. This is not one of them. In one phrase "Don't work here."

    Advice to Management

    Stop telling your people that they will make money here. You can fool them in one commission check. You cant do it in two. Stop giving the money to the kids/relatives of the owners. Everyone knows that you are doing this and hates you for it. There is way too much politics here and with subpar management who will always be spineless when it comes to standing up for their employees. There are too many good companies that need good people. And they will pay. This one...won't. I left some time ago, but I still talk to people who are there. This place still sucks. You can only hire so many one year and done employees. Make people feel like they are valued. And PAY them. Unfortunately, this place WAY under pays graduates from great schools. DON'T just make the owners rich. Make your employees rich too. Prospective employees, don't fall for the BS that HR will spew out to you. Look at the turnover rate. NOBODY stays here long. There's a reason. The current trajectory at this company is for enVista to be out of business within the next 3 to 5 years. And they will screw their people to the end.

    Pros

    High growth
    Good benefits but on the lower end for compensation

    Cons

    There is a lot expected from the employees. If you do not go above and beyond and consistently work over and weekends, you are not thought of as pulling your weight. Work/life balance is supposed to be a key factor of the culture but, in reality, working late and weekends is more the norm here. With the rapid growth in the last five years, the culture did not keep pace.

    I worked at enVista full-time

    Pros

    - Energetic CEO. He makes a lot happen.
    - Some good people onboard.
    - Sales pipeline seems due in large part to frenetic efforts of the CEO.
    - Good place to work if you are highly ambitious, want a lot of experience and are willing to work long hours with not much time for the rest of your life.

    Cons

    - Some execs are actually just bad people. Screaming/swearing at employees, management-by-fear, lacking basic social etiquette.
    - They often take on work that they haven't adequately vetted or scoped, because the mantra is to "make it happen". Incorrect expectations set up front with clients lead to client disappointment later.
    - Clear expectation of long work hours whether in consulting or in development. They reap the profits of the additional billable hours in consulting at your expense.
    - CEO make a lot happen, but also drops a lot of balls. He tries REALLY hard (it's exhausting to watch him), but he's mostly chasing deals instead of setting up good systems. I saw a LOT of money lost because basic sound financial/management operations weren't in place.
    - Too much happens based only on the ever-changing whims of the CEO.
    - Not enough systems and processes in place for a company this size. Too many expectations go unmet and opportunities unnecessarily lost.
    - Many employees (in my teams) were not even A or B-players. Mostly C or lower.
    - Despite the corporate-speak otherwise, the different business units operate mostly as silos.
    - Not a good place to work if you have a family and young kids (CEO doesn't have kids. The business is his baby. So I think he has a hard time relating). Some people with families do make it work somehow (mostly those that have been life-long consultants).
    - Promotions have the appearance of being doled out based largely on how well you get along with the good-ole-boys of the entrenched management team.
    - I saw many good people leave recently because they were frustrated with poor executive decisions and uninspiring project conditions.
    - Cannot have a conversation with the CEO without him frantically checking his phone or getting distracted.

    Advice to Management

    - Think about what would happen if the CEO got hit by a bus. Do you have the right people and practices in place to survive? I would say "no".
    - Hire A/B-players. Cut the C/D players. Most A/B players won't tolerate working with dummys and slackers for long.
    - Shift your focus from growth-for-growth's-sake at all cost. Instead, focus on providing a better value to clients and employees (the profit will follow).
    - Stop seeing your business as separate units. Create a culture that builds coordination and cooperation between these teams.

    Cons

    CEO must let go and attend to the needs of the business internally
