    I worked at Ecology and Environment (More than a year)

    Pros

    I liked the Salt Lake office. Once some changes were made, the atmosphere was better. The new office manager as of May/June 2014 is MUCH better. I did learn a good amount while at E&E but unfortunately didn't see myself advancing anywhere fast.

    Cons

    Took some time to make some necessary changes. Very old school and good ole boy type feel with upper management. Some updates could definitely be made to bring E&E into the 21st century. Very hard to get integrated at times. Seemed folks had their preferred people for work and, as a new employee, was hard to get work and stay billable. Didn't see much room for advancement. Pay was pretty low and had heard there were no raises in the last few years.

    Advice to Management

    Come into the 21st century. More effort to integrate new employees. Make some much needed decisions faster.

    Pros

    I have been given opportunities to advance my career here. The company has been loyal to me.

    Cons

    Work life balance is out of whack. Many cut backs trying to turn the company around. Raises have been very poor over the last 3 years. Hopefully with the new President things will get back on track.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and treat employees like humans. They have a choice in working there and without them, you don't have a company. Give them raises.

    I worked at Ecology and Environment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ample opportunity to work on various projects in far flung locations. Some people are particularly talented.

    Cons

    Office politics are tough. The offices fight each other. Junior employees given little instruction or support.

    Advice to Management

    Merit-based promotions will go far. Support young talent, reward initiative, and improve the compensation and benefits program by limiting/reducing overhead.

    I worked at Ecology and Environment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting projects, good quality of work

    Cons

    Top management uses intimidation to rule. This creates fear and lots of sucking up for the middle managers.

    Advice to Management

    The top management should retire, because they are unable to change and grow.


  7. Long hours, good pay. Travel time was far and wide. Lived in hotels for years it seems

    Pros

    Enjoyed the variety of project work and locations I was able to visit.

    Cons

    Competitive environment with "good ole boy" style management. Way too top heavy with not enough techs and field personnel.

    Need to work on the bureaucracy side of things.
