Our Culture

Our culture is who we are.

Enterprise Automation endeavors to maintain the founding culture of the company as continuing success brings growth. We have endured many lessons over the past couple of years that have committed us to this cause. Our culture is defined by three fundamental elements:

  1. Our core purpose (vision and mission statement)
  2. Our core values
  3. Our team members

The core purpose and core values define EA’s core ideology – the timeless character of the company. We did not invent our core ideology, it’s the nature of the people in our team. Visitors often notice these traits when they are around us.

Vision and Mission Statements

Enterprise’s vision statement represents the future we strive to achieve. The mission statement defines the day-to-day business activities we engage in pursuit of our vision. The core values define the expected behaviors of all EA team members.

Vision

Our name is known within the industry, where we are revered for our exceptional solutions. Our people are assumed to be the best simply because they work here.

What Does This Mean?
“our customers will feel relief simply from seeing the Enterprise Automation logo on your shirt, even if they have never met you”

Mission

Collectively foster an environment that values communication and collaboration.

Ensure that our industry knowledge and technical capabilities remain both relevant and world class through continuous training and mentoring.

Continually improve the efficiency of our project execution methodologies and internal systems.

Ensure that we are responsive, respectful and patient in our interactions with our customers, vendors, and to ourselves, acknowledging that our reputation is our greatest asset.

Core Values

For core values to mean something they have to permeate a company’s business plan, hiring, policies, procedures, and day to day activity. Authentic values remain fixed even as the world around changes.

Driven By Excellence

We are immensely proud of the work we produce. We do not accept anything less than our personal best, nor anything less than the best from our colleagues.

We Protect the Company

We constantly seek to identify issues that create risk, threaten our reputation, run counter to our core values, or impact the company’s welfare. Once discovered, we are proactive and take the initiative to either self-resolve or escalate. Our vigilance spans across the entire organization, not just the work areas to which we are assigned.

Collaboration

We share our knowledge and leverage our combined talents whenever possible. As a result our work is improved and each of us becomes stronger. Loners do not survive here.

Adherence to Standards, Methodology, and Process

We believe in the importance of defined standards, methodology, and processes, and understand that taking shortcuts and skipping steps increases risk and jeopardizes our reputation.

Details Matter

We believe that when details are overlooked, risk increases and problems follow. If something doesn’t make sense, there is most likely something we don’t understand. We need to trust this intuition and seek to learn more and ask questions until we achieve clarity.

Peer Review

We demand that others check our work. We know this is the most powerful way to increase the quality of our work and creates a significant opportunity for professional development.

Nothing Leaves Enterprise Untested

We believe that without testing, we nor our clients, could have any confidence that our objectives have been met. This is the single greatest defense we have to protect our reputation and distinguish ourselves in the marketplace.

Work Environment

Company Events

The company sponsors various events throughout the year to give back to the employees and acknowledge their hard work. The events are intended to foster fun and rewarding experiences that employees can enjoy. Some of these events include company races, family picnics, and the holiday party.

Company races are when we sponsor employees and customers to sign up and participate in local race competitions or triathlons. Participation can be competitive or just for fun! Employees and customers can join as individuals or as teams. These races are great at stirring up competition and training amongst the employees in the weeks leading up to the race day. The excitement leading up to the race and the participant results usually become fun talking points for the year.

The Family Picnic is an event that is usually organized in the summertime. Employees and their families are welcome to come and enjoy the food and games provided. Games are set up for adults and kids alike and are a great opportunity to meet everyone while bringing the company closer together. Experiences at the family picnic are typically the highlight of the year for our employees.

The holiday party is another way we choose to thank the employees for their contribution throughout the past year. The holiday party includes a nice evening with dinner for employees and their significant other. It is a chance to reflect on the past year and celebrate together as it comes to a close.

Activity Fund

The Activity Fund is used for employee social activities of their choosing. The activities are intended to be fun events that bond the team closer together. The monthly $400 “use it or lose it” fund can be used by the employees for any group activity of their choice. Our Activity Fund policy includes more details about the use of the funds, such as at least four employees must be participating. The activity is entirely organized by the employees. Past activities have included going to movies, go-kart racing, laser tag, and bowling. These activities are great opportunities to step away from work and foster team camaraderie.

What is it like being an EA team member?

Here are a few casual observations of EA’s environment (our team members like things this way):

  • We are all intelligent motivated individuals that want to work with other ‘A’ players (i.e. the good lab partners from class). We seek individuals that naturally adhere to our core values.
  • Team members, from day one, are empowered to question and improve our processes in order to drive efficiency and clarity.
  • Average work hours are 43 hours per week, however, they can range from 40-50 hours per week, typically when a system enters testing or there is travel involved, such as with system startups or design workshops.
  • Work-life balance is important and respected amongst team members.
  • On occasion a ping pong tournament will break out.
  • Because everyone who works here has high expectations of themselves and cares about work quality first, the team is easy going with each other and highly collaborative.
  • We all feed off each other’s ideas every day.
  • Seniority is not worshipped – passion, initiative, good ideas, and capability are.
  • Drinks and snacks are free and in abundance.
  • The facility is modern and clean. Every engineer has at least one large 32″ monitor and one 27″ monitor. This is how all engineers should work.
  • Personal development is a frequent theme to our team members. While not quite a core value, it’s pretty close with how curious everyone is.
  • There is frequent athletic activity between team members that ride bikes, run, strength train, go to the golf range, or play basketball. There’s almost always someone around who’s up for some exercise. There is typically 1 to 2 company sponsored short course triathlons per year.
  • Team members become more highly skilled at computers, networking, system development methods, and quality control than with most other integrators.
  • A few times a year we each install the control systems we built and bring our client’s facilities to life via equipment checkout, process verification, and finally handover!

Chris Schleich

Engineering Manager

I targeted the controls industry out of college when I realized I wanted to conduct the orchestra more than build an instrument. Scott Pickford hired me and the rest is history.

I expect this of myself and everyone at EA.

I have twin daughters and experiment with endurance sports. In 2013 I sold my game stations and started reading as much as possible to accelerate learning. “Growth Mindset!”
