Great people, interesting projects, lots of good stuff to learn

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Anchor QEA full-time for more than 8 years

ProsExcellent employees who are very good at what they do. They have a niche in contaminated sediments, but are rapidly expanding in other areas. They do high end technical work on some of the most challenging environmental problems. Company culture is structured to promote free exchange of ideas and projects. Annual company retreat is a great way to promote camaraderie.

ConsOpportunities to work are mostly concentrated on the East, West and Gulf Coasts, and the Great Lakes region. Not too many opportunities in the middle of the country. Getting mentored by senior partners in your area of expertise can be a challenge if you work in a small office.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the company culture.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Nice people, assuming you "fit in"

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Anchor QEA

ProsIt's a company concerned about the environment, and about it's employees. Company retreats are always fun, and a great way to get to know coworkers.

ConsThe company tends to be very cliquey, and the partners definitely contribute to this. If you befriend a partner, you can expect to be taken out to lunches and happy hours. If you don't, you can tend to feel like an outsider.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
