    I worked at EBI

    Pros

    EBI can provide a good opportunity for someone who wants to learn more about environmental consulting and get some hands on experience. You will be assigned to a particular department, (real estate, ehs, etc.) but it is possible to move if you demonstrate interest. There are many young, like-minded professionals and the company tries to provide a pleasant working atmosphere.

    Cons

    Salaries are low but the chance to gain experience is worthwhile. There is not a feeling of company loyalty: I have seen people let go without much warning.

    Advice to Management

    The more loyalty you show your employees, the more they will want to work hard for the company in return.

    Pros

    Production bonus. If the company succeeds the production workers succeed.

    Cons

    Raw materials do not always arrive on time which delays production. For office staff not enough room for advancement.


  3. Very dysfuntional environment.

    Pros

    Great product, as far as background screening systems go.

    Cons

    High turnover, low pay, inconsistent policies and procedures, upper level management are lacking in any skills and expertise needed to lead a department, it seems to be a stopover, for anyone with any common sense, and they move on to a better position.

    Advice to Management

    The culture and environment, in a company the size of EBI, is set by the top executives & therefore comes from above. If the President of EBI could be realistic on how bad the example is of how he acts & the tone he sets, he would then realize that he needs to get some help from the outside in restructuring the company and all new management that can supervise people with fair and reasonable guidance.

    Pros

    Very busy work environment, never bored.

    Cons

    Company seems to be in a constant state of "change". Outsourcing is not producing desired results, and employees are overworked and underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your employees for their Hard Work and Dedication. More focus from Senior Management on Employees and Team Building / Motivation.
