    I have been working at EMG Corp

    Pros

    Great work environment with devoted and committed employees. Everyone at work WANTS to be there, which you do not see often.

    Cons

    Office space is dated, but will be expanding soon!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at EMG Corp full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Liked most of the work; it was a pretty good fit for my experience and skills.

    Cons

    Poor communication, not much support, little regard for Project Managers safety, basically no one cared about you, just getting the report in on time. Everyone seemed overworked and scrambling -- no time for them to help you with your job. "Get that roof shot no matter the consequences". Unrealistic time and site visit expectations too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about job safety, improve communications, support, supervision, and training. Get more help to PMs.

    I worked at EMG Corp full-time

    Pros

    Liked the casual attire. Could wear jeans anytime. Ability to work from home. Decent amount of vacation.

    Cons

    Super unprofessional. Beer should not be served to employees at 4pm on a Friday. It's irresponsible and dangerous. Job description pretty much changed daily. If you weren't a manager you weren't appreciated. Too many management changes, all managers contradicted each other. Would be told one thing, and then would be yelled at about it the next day. No breaks allowed. Pay was WAY under standard. Didn't take employee opinions into consideration, only did what was best for the executive team. Don't ever expect to get credit for your own ideas. Age discrimination. Held it against you if you worked from home. No opportunity to advance, they just hired over you. No game plan, everything was done on a whim. Very unorganized company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have less employees and pay them more. Actually value all employees instead of just acting like you do. Treat everyone as equal and take all employees' thoughts into consideration when making big changes, like changing locations of the office. Be more professional.

    I worked at EMG Corp

    Pros

    I'd say all of the directors and executives are AWESOME. They seem true really care about the rest of us down the totem pole. Great culture, sense of company pride.

    Cons

    Pay is down right pathetic for the amount of hours worked. Communication can suffer given that most employee work remotely. Certain reviewers are on a "power trip".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, please reconsider what you're paying people (especially PMs). We are responsible for traveling all over, spending hours at sites, stuck in airports, away from our families, writing reports for 10+ hours every day. PMs deserve a piece of the bonus pie at the end of the quarter, just like TRRs and SECs.

    I worked at EMG Corp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Ability to telecommute if you have an issue or there's inclement weather. Great community giving spirit.

    Cons

    Cliques, once you are known as doing "x," you will never break out of the mold. I agree with another reviewer that advancement is very political. Pay is extremely low in comparison to the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When jobs are advertised and you know people within the company have applied for similar jobs, approach them. Encourage advancement/growth within the company. A LOT of talk is made about this, but it doesn't really happen. The only way to advance is to leave.

    I worked at EMG Corp

    Pros

    Client base is consistant; services expand with available personnel experience or market demand

    Cons

    Growth is admirable, but continuity drives the services although there is little Real Estate with mimics the evaluation of another and markets are generally not cost predictable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very capable but may need to be open to consultants / employees cost recommendations and insight into intent of code vs. text of code.
