ENGlobal US, Inc

Civil Structural Department Head (Current Employee)
Tulsa, OK (US)

I have been working at ENGlobal full-time for more than 8 years

ProsENGlobal is going thru up and downs adjusting to the market place, they provide support and space for employees to adjust and work hard with management to remain competitive and looking for ways to become more competitive and provide more value to our clients

ConsFor a while to much upper management related to size and type of projects in hand, modifications were taken and ratio is much better know.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue improvement, adjusting making ENGlobal a dynamic firm that can fit in today's ever changing environment.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

It's a good place to work, needs a few changes

In-Plant Personnel (Current Employee)

I have been working at ENGlobal full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSafety is held in high regards. Recognize safety with safety rewards and celebrations.

ConsThere is no recognition for hard work or a good job done. Especially for in-plant personnel. The quality of work from the engineering office is lacking. There's no opportunity for advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementMiddle management does not value the opinions of the people doing the work on a daily basis.

Letting pipefitters run company - no associate review process in place. Over 15 years seen company go downhill.

Piping Designer I (Current Employee)
Beaumont, TX (US)

I have been working at ENGlobal full-time for more than 10 years

ProsLong-term employment. Good pay and work life balance

ConsBenefits continue to decline. Middle management not experienced and seem to promote through the buddy system instead of merit. No HR system in place to review associate work so no recoginition program in place.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more involved in what is going on in your Beaumont office. Be more forward thinking in offering associates reviews and bonuses.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Not keeping up with the rest of the industry

Project Manager I (Current Employee)

I have been working at ENGlobal full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSmall company atmosphere
Friendly people by and large
Large volume of work at times
Reasonably flexible schedule depending on manager
Finally beginning to take safety seriously. In the past it has been lax at best.

ConsNo longer a respected company in the industry
Poor pay and benefits compared to competitors
Several years of losses every quarter has hurt a lot of peoples faith in upper management, especially since no changes have been made nor has a plan to revive the business been discussed/rolled out

Advice to Senior ManagementIts time to focus on your employees instead pushing to expand beyond financial and workforce means. You can't fulfill contacts without people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
