    I have been working at ERRG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    ERRG provides a positive and challenging environment to grow your career. There is the corporate support to allow you to succeed without being micromanaged. The company has real safety and quality control programs that work and are not just for show. Coming from another small company I was amazed at how well the company is run and what great work they do. I have had a great experience so for and hope it continues for the foreseeable future.

    Cons

    The communication between the corporate office and regional offices could improve. The compensation and benefits would probably be better at a larger company.

    I have been working at ERRG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've had a positive experience working at ERRG. I've been exposed to a wide amount tasks that are either technical, construction, remediation, or management related. Compared to colleges at large businesses, I find I'm exposed to a wide number tasks each day so it's not redundant or boring. Some people complain they have to do too much management support (like procurement, financial tracking, etc.) . The more in touch you are with the day-to-day processes the easier it is to add value to the overall process.

    Cons

    There is a lot of opportunity to do a wide variety of work and to move up for most staff. Because it is a small company advancement for senior staff appears limited. It seems like the company has lost and might lose strong senior staff unless the company is better about showing the path for them to advance/grow. Also, it does seem like there is a bit too much favoritisms with some staff that have been with the company a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Work on sending a consistent message to the staff in the company, work cohesively as a team, and support your senior management/regional managers. Try not to let your own personal experiences with individuals influence your decisions too much.

    I have been working at ERRG (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    ERRG gives its employees the opportunity to learn and grow. If you are motivated and a hard worker, ERRG will challenge you and foster your career growth. Senior management encourages staff to grow beyond their current job title and responsibilities. I have learned a lot at ERRG. I enjoy working with my co-workers at all levels of the company.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize valued staff with higher compensation.

    I have been working at ERRG full-time

    Pros

    Small company with good people. Get to touch in all aspects of construction, construction management, design, invoicing, contracts, project controls, procurement, etc. Lot of room to grown and you down feel like a pawn in a large company. They also do not regulate your over time hours and you are compensated if you have to work long hours which does not happen to much unless you are at a job site. In the office you might average about 40 to 45 hours a week and in the field 45 to 50.

    Cons

    Compensation is not that good, especially at entry level positions. They do not match your 401K contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Need to promote more from within and give better compensation to keep good employees, rather then hire expensive employees who end up not working out.

    I have been working at ERRG full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    This company provides a high degree of autonomy and opportunity for growth at every level. Very supportive of ideas outside the box. If you are self-motivated and can show you can get the job done no one will micro manage you. Office environment is friendly, cooperative, and sometimes intense (deadline driven).

    Cons

    Small company with few corporate resources (do everything yourself from procurement to xeroxing).

    Advice to Management

    Work on consistent, clear communication. Sometimes there are too many/mixed messages coming from the ownership group.

    Pros

    Small enough company to gain more project management experience

    Cons

    They don't match 401K contributions

    Advice to Management

    Please value your employees by trusting them, offering company-paid training courses, and attempting to retain them if they have been offered a position else where (this can be done by other means than monetary). Also disseminate important company information to employees when appropriate.


  11. Seek employment else where or if desperate take while you desperately search

    Pros

    Few people that are human and honest

    Cons

    Pretty much everything, back stabbing boys club. If you are an honest hard working person this is not the company for you. Very "old school" and not in a positive way. Swearing, sexist comments and high school like cliches are a standard.
