Good salary, but the corporate culture is lacking in every way
Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) – Richmond, KY – September 5, 2016
My primary role as an engineer is to support production. I could be a functioning alcoholic and do that job, so my "free time" is completely un-monitored such that I can pursue my own projects (AWESOME) and I do almost anything I want, with a reasonable budget, but...it comes at a price. I have zero technical support and no mentor and as a first year grad, that's not good. My manager's technical ability is far less than my own and we frequently do not report actual results to the corporate office because of the subsequent fallout that can occur from "doing too good of a job with [insert program here]," which could (would?) result in the reduction of manpower, which our operation desperately needs.
To further explain, the corporate office continues to dictate policy and practice, but does not care to involve itself in understanding the daily activity of the production facilities. This creates an underlying mistrust throughout the company. The corporate office is viewed as a cost cutter first and foremost, without taking into account what actually happens when services or manpower is reduced.
My co-workers are awesome.
My manager is a terrific guy but either cannot or will not hold a reasonable dialog with our corporate office as to why our automation programs simply cannot justify the reduction in manpower (due to recent, additional responsibilities placed upon the facility)
The hardest part of the job, for me, is the political atmosphere. I love the people I work with, but I need something more like academia where I have collaboration with fellow professionals.more... I just don't have that in my current role and I'm not willing to move to Reading, PA to attain it.
The most enjoyable part of the job is doing whatever I want (that adds value to the organization). I have a lot of people that recognize my value, but the political atmosphere is such that they are either unwilling to give credit for fear of having to pay me even more money, or want the credit for themselves. Either way, the atmosphere is toxic.less
Good health, dental, vision benefits, flex spending, willing to negotiate vacation on hire
Forced to take vacation on plant shutdown times, inter-company political climate, cold atmosphere, internal secrecy that appears almost scandalous at times
Assembly (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – July 24, 2016
I worked at this company for 14 yrs it was a great experience I did assembly parts for battery chargers we built chargers for airplanes nd tow motors or forklifts did most of the jobs required great place to work but unfortunately I got laid off and just recently the company decided to close doors and move out of state.
Challenging work place with profitable manufactured product.
Controller (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – May 31, 2016
I was responsible for payroll, accounts payable, the general ledger, maintain the integrity of SOX reporting, all standard cost reporting, and monthly closing. A typical workday after close would be closing analysis to plant and corporate management. Payroll was on a bi-weekly schedule and maintaining the G/L and standard costs were a daily challenge.
I reported directly to the Plant Manager, with a dotted line to Corporate Cost Accounting in Reading, PA.
Hardest part of my job was Union Negotiations, the most enjoyable was the daily challenge..
Good pay, decent production jobs, bad place to work due to people
Charging Technician (Former Employee) – Richmond, KY – March 9, 2016
Most jobs are not bad, the people you work with and the management are horrible. I am talking a whole new level of horrible. Horrible people, horrible management but a good job with great pay and decent benefits. It would be up to you on how much you can take and what your willing to deal with if seeking a job here.
Enersys as a company is as bad as most of their employees, The people and employees are very childish and continually try to get one another fired.
My job at Enersys was very comfortable,i enjoyed working for the company,they treat there employess very well,everyday that I would come into work I didn't have to worry about no one looking over my head while im working,any assignment that was sue I always completed on time to prepare for shipping out....
production associate (Former Employee) – Warrensburg, MO – October 23, 2015
I worked for Enersys in the Warrensburg location. This is not a bad job all in all and as far as factory work this is probably the easiest work you will find in the area for the money. Management shows a lot of favoritism on all of the shifts. This is a very unstable job and if you want to be laid off around the holidays they are known for that. All in all not a horrible place to work but not good for a steady reliable income.
Not to hard of work
lead exposure, to many shutdowns a year (1 wk in July, 1 in Nov if slow, and 2 wks in dec)
Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) – Novi – September 25, 2015
Management is never available, mean co-workers, negative attitudes, lot's of favoritism, lack of training, never complimented for a good job but ALWAYS called out when doing wrong, all in all a very unhappy work environment.
