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

    Pros

    Many opportunities to work on diverse projects. Flexibility to switch practices and locations. Opportunities to work from home. Friendly work environment. A lot of support if you know who to ask.

    Cons

    Not much vacation. Not many holidays. Not many perks. Political. Too much of a stress on billability to the point of being counterproductive. Poor project management program. Lots of jumping through hoops to get things going. Difficult to get promotions. Definitely getting underpaid for the value of work that I am doing. I would make much more at another consulting firm. Many consultants are overworked and still hoard project work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop putting so much pressure on employees! Pay employees what they are actually worth.

    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.

    I have been working at Environmental Resources Management

    Pros

    1. various opportunities and project in short time period
    2. lots of travel (if you like)

    Cons

    1. horrible / terrible management skill. over rapped managers but not many actual workers. all tech staff leave the company as they cannot get any support if they are not lined up with upper management. (most of tech staff leave the company within 2 years)
    2. a mangers appeared from nowhere (usually good friend with upper manager) to milk your money and project by doing nothing. those managers charge a lot a lot a lot of money by signing the contract or reading your paperwork. cannot advise your report or technical side as they do have some random experience. they only overstate their relationship with good / big companies even many complaint from them.
    3. work life balance is terrible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of all unnecessary management people pay extra attention to your technical experts not only your good friends.

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

    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.
