In tech we have many buzz words such as microservices, the cloud, frameworks, and artificial intelligence. Travel also has buzz words, and as of late, Iceland has been one of the biggest. Being a UX/UI Designer, I spend most of my days behind a computer. With two-thirds of the country being uninhabitable, a trip to Iceland is bound to be rustic, rural, and isolated, so the promise of spending most of my vacation outdoors was enticing! After stepping off the… [continue]
E-g Focus on Values series As we pass our 19th anniversary and head into our 20th year as a business, we felt compelled to bring a little of the intimacy of our quaint company out into the open. Or as Don put it, “letting the internal leak outside a bit.” And so, we launch our “E-g Focus on Values” blog series! There are no “big personalities” here, and so we’re not strutting around presuming we’re the authority on any of… [continue]
Another year has passed. We’ve covered a lot of new ground over the past year on our journey of life together here in the E-g family. We’ve seen some new breathtaking views, and had some new thrilling life experiences. We’ve endured deep personal losses together that none of us are ever truly prepared for. We have also been pleasantly surprised by life more times than we can count… And yet with all of that “new,” we find ourselves in familiar… [continue]
We have an informal saying around here: Do Right and Risk the Consequences. One of our E-gineers had that as a bumper sticker awhile back, and it just seems to apply pretty universally. We all have countless opportunities to do a little something for someone else – something completely selfless and sacrificial. It seems so often we let those opportunities slip by – for a myriad of reasons, for sure. Add to that: with our abundance of technological connectedness, we’ve… [continue]
Is your career in a STEM Field? Have you ever been the only female on your team at work? Did you graduate with a STEM degree, yet the percentage of women in the graduating class was less than 20%? The answers are all yes for me. Last week I participated as a chaperone for sixth-grade girls at Ignite Your Superpower (IYS). IYS, sponsored by Women & Hi Tech, provided middle-school girls a whole day to discover more about Science, Technology,… [continue]
Adulthood. Coming of age. Voting. High school graduation. These are all things that greet us here in the US when we turn 18. So it seems E-g has finally come of age! How do we celebrate our 18th anniversary? Just like we do the rest of life here at E-g – like a family. We gathered at one of our beautiful local parks, swung open the gates, and said, “Have fun!” Honestly, we needed little instruction after that!
Being recognized among the Best Places to Work in Indiana – a hard-working state filled with so many excellent companies – is an incredible honor. But being named the #1 place to work, in a year in which we moved from the Small Companies up to the Medium category, is downright indescribable. As we have grown from a folding table in a garage almost 20 years ago into 80+ people and around 20,000 square feet of office space today, the… [continue]
Earlier this year we put together a Christmas Card Workshop for employees to bring their kids. We invited them to EG on a Saturday for cookie decorating (and eating of course), Christmas card making, and some fun family portraits. We even had some silly props to make it more exciting! When our monthly lunch rolls around in December, we like to celebrate the season with some good food (pulled pork/brisket bbq of course), and a little fun. Alongside the… [continue]
