    Pros

    The money can be really good and the work is not that hard

    Cons

    The hours are long, so he times 16 a day 7 days a week for 21 days straight and you are often away from family and friends... And some times civilization...

    Pros

    At least when you work 100-hour work weeks you're *usually* getting paid for the overtime, sometimes get bonuses, and the per diem and hotel/flight/rental car points add up. They don't make up for 100% of the weekends you'll lose, but at least you get some comp time occasionally.

    Cons

    The 90-100 hour work weeks; sometimes extremely difficult to learn anything new or anything other than equipment troubleshooting; very cliquey at times; some people are lucky enough to always be on day shift--others spend about 70-90% of the time on night shift; maybe you'll get to learn a little from the Toxicologists and about environmental sampling, but don't be surprised if your 16 hour shifts consist entirely of standing in one spot watching contractors work while you enter the numbers your monitor spits out. Maybe use this job as a stepping-stone, but don't turn down a quality job offer for one from this company.

    Pros

    If you fight for it, you can learn about sampling and monitoring. You get to travel .... a LOT.

    Cons

    Management is immature, most fresh out of college with no other experience. Most are smart, but have no idea how to manage people. There is a lot of favoritism. Billing for the clients is shady. Data is manipulated.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to focus on experienced professionals rather than young kids they can manipulate.

    Pros

    Travel. Good pay and benefits. Fantastic learning opportunities. Meet very influential people.

    Cons

    Personal life is forfeit. Rumor mill is ridiculous. Questionable client billing. Be wary of manipulative upper management. If you disagree, you will be replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees. You hire intelligent people, and then expect them to ignore obvious problems. Be more selective with management choices.

    Pros

    Over all excellent small private company to work for. They give a silver lining to natural and man made disasters.

    Cons

    It is difficult to get on with them initially. You startt off as a sub-contractor and them if you can catch a break you are in.

    Advice to Management

    Try to hire more temporaries versus hiring sub-contractors. Other than that I don't see much else that could improve things to make your company a more desirable place to work.

    Pros

    CTEH offers good opportunities for overtime, with good benefits. The wide variety of projects takes you all over the country, doing a variety of jobs - some exciting, some boring, but overall interesting.

    Cons

    CTEH seems to be about billing as much as possible to the client. Some things seem shady, and the rumor mill is out of control. Company leadership lacks integrity and hiring / promotions seem to be based on nepotism. Employee moral is very low.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the field people! And communicate when bad things happen, instead of leaving it to the rumor mill to sort things out. Don't be afraid to tell us the truth.
