    Pros

    Great firm with excellent benefits package. Benefits start on Day 1. Plenty of sick leave (twice at much than an average company). For retirement, you'd get a 401(k) with company match AND pension plan. Very rare.

    Cons

    Improve training system, which is very weird. Management needs to listen to all other staff in the group as well for insights.

    Pros

    You may learn a lot depending on the projects and managers you get to work with.

    Cons

    Different offices do things differently. Baised promotion and growth potential across the firm.

    I have been working at ENVIRON full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good work culture, not as political as big companies can be. Most people have good work ethics. Depending on what area you're in (i.e. consulting vs. support), you have good progression opportunities.

    Cons

    Very little vacation time and too much sick time available. Could encourage more healthy work culture like healthy snacks or fruits available in office, encourage people to work from home, etc.

    No rules, no direction, but a great place if that suits your needs.

    Pros

    Good pay for higher-level managers. Plenty of room to practice your areas of interest with relatively little interference from the management. Good network of offices in the UK, Germany, and the USA. Air group is world class.

    Cons

    Management does not provide much direction or guidance on the future of its staff and the company. Utilization rates and multipliers are relatively high for managers. You are asked to work and sell but get little support for the latter.

    I worked at ENVIRON full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Consulting work is never boring
    The people in Nashville were great to work with, I miss the friendships

    Cons

    Bonus structure discourages collaboration among managers and different offices
    Nashville office still behaves like its not part of the rest of the company
    Growth is all through acquisitions, no organic growth seen in the company
    Each manageing principal treats his office like a personal fiefdom.

    Former Employee - Associate in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at ENVIRON full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    professional support, training, benefits, frequent exposure to various practice areas--brown bags, opportunities to work on projects outside your proper practice area. The people are smart, genuine, mostly excellent at their jobs, much nicer to work with than those in the East (e.g., Princeton, Arlington).

    Cons

    Company: pay, work/life balance, chronically low budgets to stay competitive (billing rates are higher than those of the general market). Industry: repetitive work, management roles didn't appear very interesting.

    The work varies a lot from office to office, some are good and rewarding, some are really bad

    Current Employee - Associate

    I have been working at ENVIRON full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working environment
    Was able to work with a lot of people in other offices
    Good training opportunity – conference and some other online training classes
    Good rewarding policy: promotion and salary increase

    Cons

    Over time is NOT paid at all

    Inefficiencies in the processing workflows and controls - Associates did the same thing again and again without clear instructions

    Principles/Managers are good engineers, but not professional managers. You have to be very very proactive to gain feedback to keep career moving forward

    Work can be very repetitive - Associates dis the same kind of reports/calculation for different clients again, again and again

    Some managers have their favorite associates and don't trust any others. Some associates had very had time to learn new things and do different projects

    Office environment is weird - company hires the family members of potential clients and promote the people that are not qualified

    Principle consultant does not appreciate the overtime hard work of associates and always give last minutes request

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the hard working people and reward them
