    Plenty of freedom, poor leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThis is a steady job with a steady income. There is a lot of freedom in this office to create your own schedule and work style.

    ConsThis office lacks leadership and useful training. In a entry level position I have found it difficult to gain skills or direction for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut the time in to properly train your new employees. Training mudules do not replace leadership and strong project managers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great first job, gained a lot of valuable experience but professional growth is difficult

    Staff Scientist (Current Employee) Concord, CA

    ProsReally fun work and lots of opportunities to gain valuable experience for recent grads.Lots of things are changing with the recent merger with Cardno. Some of the bad apples have been asked to leave or have left on their own. Steps are being taken to train middle managers to promote organic growth.

    ConsPromotion is completely arbitrary within the company and largely depends on the office you work out off, the working group you are in and especially the manager you have. Opportunities to work toward promotion can be difficult to come by; as employees become proficient at or exceed the expectations of their level they can be held there in the effort to keep project bids competitive with other less expensive consultants.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide lower level employees more professional training. Prompt middle managers to give constructive criticism. Guard against blacklisting employees without feedback. Standardize promotion standards between offices and working groups.
