interesting business model...

Environmental Scientist (Former Employee)
Bridgewater, MA

I worked at Coneco Engineers and Scientists full-time

ProsGreat experience for recent graduates looking to get into environmental consulting
Young and fun work environment
Freedom and variety of projects
Very few unnecessary meetings and overhead tasks - you have a great amount of time and freedom to accomplish your tasks

ConsLIttle to no female management
Not always enough projects and work to go around
Undesirable benefits and employee appreciation
Pro-profit, not pro-environment
borderline un-PC

Advice to Senior ManagementIt seems the business model is to hire recent college graduates and keep turn-over high to keep payroll and service costs low. This is great for recent grads who need experience and can move on, while keeping those that are a good fit for the company. My advice, however, would be to let go of uninterested and incompetent workers. Having these people breeds negativity and lessens productivity in the office.

Don't bother if you've had experience with ANY other company

Environmental Scientist (Former Employee)
Bridgewater, MA

I worked at Coneco Engineers and Scientists

ProsThey give you enough rope to hang yourself. If you are really good at just keeping your head down and doing exactly as you are told without any independent thought, this is the place for you.

ConsPoor communication skills by management, poor pay, poor compensation/benefits, bad overall workplace environment.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A good place to learn the business

Scientist (Former Employee)
Bronx, NY

I worked at Coneco Engineers and Scientists

ProsGood work / life balance. Everyone is given enough room to learn on their own and given the opportunity to learn new skills.

ConsSome individual employees do not have a good attitude and can bring down the rest of the team with their negativity.

Great place to start an environmental career

Project Environmental Scientist (Former Employee)

I worked at Coneco Engineers and Scientists

ProsLots of hands on experience with a variety of field related tasks. Client interaction, and high level of personal responsibility and accountability.

ConsManagement doesn't always communicate overall goals of the company, or allow others the tools they need to effectively expand business development. Too few regular clients puts supplying the majority of work and revenue.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet others have more responsibility for client relationships where applicable. Provide reasonable incentives and compensation structure to all deserving individuals.

Good place to start

Environmental Scientist (Current Employee)

I have been working at Coneco Engineers and Scientists

ProsGood work/life balance. Very flexible. Can have the opportunity to work on many aspects of a project.

ConsVery limited feedback on ones work. Senior management does a poor job of communicating with staff about important company issues. Pay is bottom of the barrel. Very little networking or connection to the industry. Reliant on a small pool of clients

Advice to Senior ManagementShow respect to your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
