Do Not Work At Enviva
Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Faison, NCOctober 9, 2018
Worst experience I have ever had in ~30 years in engineering. This company's culture is hostile, intimidating, and completely disfunctional to the core.

Numerous examples of executive leadership resorting to yelling expletives to their subordinates.

Numerous examples of short cutting safety. Even saw plant manager witness an employee enter a confined space with no lockout or confined space permit.

Overall, hard working and dedicated hourly staff being led down the wrong path by leaders who have no clue about how to treat the company's most important asset...its people.
Pros
None
Cons
Too Many to List

Dumping hoppers, Conveyors, Re-chipper (Former Employee) –  Franklin, VAAugust 8, 2018
Lots of things you can learn from this place. I enjoyed most of it. It is a mill so you have swing shifts. Most of the people were OK. The hardest part was trying to do something one way and someone else try to tell you to do there way

Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Franklin, VAJune 29, 2018
If you are considering this, just stop. Back stabbing conniving people everywhere. Management is terrible. A revolving door of knowitalls that never ends. No accountability. Everyone just wants to be a boss and blame somebody else. Non skilled labor makes as much or more money than skilled labor.
Pros
Make a paycheck
Cons
Just about everything

Former employee (Former Employee) –  Franklin, VAApril 22, 2018
Everyone is a target. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Not a good experience. Members of management are incompetent of decision making. Everyone there thinks they're in charge but accepts no responsibility.

"You all suck, and everyone knows it."
Manager (Former Employee) –  Southern USJanuary 19, 2017
That's what a regional manager told the employees in a group setting. This is the morning after half the plant had worked well over 24 hours to return to service following a failure that was caused by senior managements failure to provide resources needs to prevent the failure.
Pros
Good people at plant level
Cons
Senior leadership are tyrants

Enviva LLC
Project Control Specialist (Former Employee) –  Wilmington, NCJuly 28, 2016
Typical workplace except for the turmoil through out the job site due to project management not having the knowledge needed to run a project or site and keep everyone on the same page. When you have hired 7 project control analyst over the past year and a half there is something wrong with that process, and how the information is processed on a daily and weekly basis. When you can't even get the sub-contractors to acknowledge that they have any issues on site with the crew and getting the master schedule updated every week in a timely manner there is something terribly wrong with that overall process!

I have moved on and I hope that and those above issues have been turned around but from what I have been told over the past two months not much has changed in the day to day processes!
Pros
Primavera Software, Location, Beach
Cons
No Team Players, Tracking Down The sub-contractors every week for schedule updates, sub-contractors and management not showing up for meetings when needed

Shipping Helper (Former Employee) –  Ahoskie, NCApril 16, 2014
Typical day of work included filling up trucks with pellets, cleaning up different areas when not busy and getting to learn new areas. Management was nice, understanding, willing to talk and get your perspective and ideas on things.
Co-workers were very fun and nice willing to help you learn new things and ways to improve.
Hardest thing about job was leaving.
Most enjoyable part of job was finally having a job I loved and people i enjoyed working with and being outside.
Pros
working outside, people very laid back, willing to joke and be fun
Cons
leaving
