    Pros

    This is a great place to expand your knowledge of environmental health and safety regulations. The company is expanding and is always looking for talented professionals. You will have the opportunity to work in diverse industries.

    I worked at AARC Environmental full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I learned a lot about environmental regulations. I did not have to sit at a desk from 9-5. It was a good first job.

    Cons

    The hours are long, especially considering the low pay. Salaried workers do not receive overtime, so managers do not care about piling on more work and making you stay late. You often have to travel for days with little or no notice. You have to pay out of pocket for gas, meals, and hotels when travelling and then wait weeks or months to be reimbursed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    provide better work/life balance, pay expenses quicker or provide better advances, plan better for travel

    Pros

    As an environmental consulting firm that provides compliance-related services, they seem to have a good concept. Managers appear smart and informed.

    Cons

    New hires should not get comfortable, even when getting positive feedback. AARC's reputation in the industry is as a company that does not value or respect employees, and rightly so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foremost, be honest with your staff. Also? Rely less on 2x/week Skype meetings. You spend 20 minutes each meeting just saying "Can you hear me?" and end up going to conference call service 80% of the time. Not very efficient.

    I worked at AARC Environmental

    Pros

    To understand how a shrewd business operates.

    Cons

    Understaffed, unfair, personal life has no value. Expect to travel 80% or more, when it will be pitched as 40 to 50%. If you don't choose to be best friends with the boss and attending bar visits and drinking, it will effect how you are treated in the work place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff up, and pay your employees fairly.
