    Worth working for a few years.

    Field Engineer (Current Employee)

    ConsPay is low for what you do.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If you don't mind some travel and some occasional work outdoors, you will love this place!!!

    Engineer (Former Employee)
    Knoxville, TN

    ProsThe people are knowledge and awesome to work with. The compensation is fair and time off is available when schedule allows. The job sites are diverse and keep you from getting tired of the same office and faces.

    ConsThe offices are smaller in number and you may not have the most room for upward mobility if you are looking for such. The nature of the business tends to bring about a very hectic and spontaneous schedule.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    All you gain here is experience.

    Environmental Technician (Former Employee)
    Palatine, IL

    ProsAdd a little experience to your resume.
    Coworkers are a great bunch of people to work with.

    ConsLong hours with poor OT compensation
    Always traveling
    Compensation is lower than expected for what you sacrifice
    Advancement opportunities are none
    Benefits: No dental.
    Safety is not a priority, but they say it is.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees are your most valuable asset. Provide them an environment to flourish, and one that is safe.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Some great people, but very hard to move up or get raises

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Palatine, IL

    ProsLoved some of the people I worked with and loved being allowed to be independent in my work. They have a great health insurance and 401k program.

    ConsThe position I was in did not allow for me to move up (which is normal for safety at a small company)but they are very bad about giving raises for good, hard work. They will compliment your work until the sun comes up but won't give you a penny for it. This is true for many positions. They keep older ("there since the beginning") employees even when they have out-lived their usefulness to the company and continue to give them raises even if they aren't doing anything more than sleeping at their desks. They are also VERY slow to replace employees who leave or move into different departments. I would not recommend this company if you are looking to grow in your career or if you want to stay at a company for more than 2 years.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great people to work with, but terribly lacking in promotions and compensation

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Palatine, IL

    ProsEmployees are mostly good to work with, excellent 401k benefits.

    ConsSalaries are not competitive. Employer does not realize this is why they have such a problem with high turnover.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEvaluate salaries more often and offer more incentives to boost employee moral.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not that great...

    Field Engineer (Former Employee)
    Palatine, IL

    ProsI liked working in the field, seeing manufacturing and energy plants, and making a solid group of friends. The field engineers are mostly great guys to work with

    ConsPay is very low, especially considering lots of the guys who work at Clean Air studied engineering while they were in school

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more sympathetic to employees, dont give ridiculous assignments, and find meaningful work to do when the engineers are in the office.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
