    I worked at Environmental Resources Management

    Pros

    ERM truly cares about the safety of its employees, so much so that they consider termination if they know that you are using your cell phone while your driving. They also have career development paths so you can know what you have to do in order to get where you want to be in the company.

    Cons

    Feedback was not as frequent or specific as possible. Started to notice that while there is personal accountability, some "passing the buck" also occurs. Nevertheless, still a great place to work.

    Pros

    Extremely focused on the health and safety of employees while on the job, good benefits, and provides a lot of new learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Little effort is made to help lower level consultants grow with the company, the focus is primarily on the partners. Office atmosphere is very political which makes career growth within the company difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Due to the drastic increase in CL1 staff, more effort should be made available to help these individuals develop in their careers. Compensation should also be more competitive.

    I have been working at Environmental Resources Management

    Pros

    Consulting is fun work, at least in my opinion. I enjoyed the working environment and fast paced type of work. I maybe worked on 10 different projects in the course of a month.

    Cons

    Low starting pay for a consulting firm. I did it more for the experience than the pay but they should pay CL1s more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the internal business flow organized better. Invest in new young employees. They add value to the ERM brand and the client much more Han you think.

    I have been working at Environmental Resources Management full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good company. If you are a quick study and a self starter, this is the place for you. You will hit the ground running and, if working in a senior level position, you must have confidence in your technical area of expertise. Only for those with a strong consulting background. Lots of opportunity. Very professional atmosphere and high expectations of all employees. Very solid onboarding process.

    Cons

    The base pay is low for this industry, but ERM is liberal with providing bonus and advancement opportunities. If you work hard and have the right stuff you can make Partner where the money is excellent. Lots of young, highly educated but minimally experienced employees. A very flat management structure that leads to odd situations where senior people sometimes work for junior project managers. The hotel concept office is a nice idea, but doesn't work too well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider higher base pay for CL-3 and CL-4 positions.
