    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Quick responses to all inquiries, fun atmosphere while getting work done, management eager to offer guidance if you are eager to learn

    Cons

    Obviously as another reviewer stated, ERT is not based on a Silicon Valley culture; so although the people are friendly, there are few young people and some systems in the company could be updated

    I worked at Earth Resources Technology, Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company pays on time and HR is responsive.

    Cons

    ERT is infamous for hiring Project Managers or Contract leads that simply don't possess any work ethic and instead only know how to talk. They are then forced to let go of these PMs once the contract is driven to the ground and the client is furiously upset. Of course leading a bad mark on the company.

    Advice to Management

    Make note on lessons learned from previous mistakes, extremely with management recruitment.

    I have been working at Earth Resources Technology, Inc. (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Compared to the other contractors I have worked for, this one is a breath of fresh air. Atmosphere is easy going, not a lot of company demands on my time, so I am free to do the best I can do for the client. Useful monthly meetings at contractor site, with lunch hosted by ERT, has enabled me to meet all my colleagues and network. Easy going manager, available when needed--always gets back to me same day. Flexible on leave. They are winning contracts and expanding quickly.

    Cons

    Definitely lowballed me on the offer because they new they were the only game in town at the moment on where I wanted to go.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing, by and large. Resist the temptation to become like other contractors and load employees down with stuff that takes time away from the actual work. Keep it like a family.

    I worked at Earth Resources Technology, Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to groom your skills. Good pay but horrible pay schedule Good Benefits

    Cons

    Still a growing company. No tools, poor communication with management They treat workers without regard, your sub-contract could end anytime and you would be out of a job and the management would leave you in the dark. Need more robust infrastructure. They need to take care of the staff in remote locations and not make them feel neglected Management is hapazard

    Advice to Management

    The management needs serious restructuring. Money cannot be the goal.

    I have been working at Earth Resources Technology, Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers & peers are pleasant.

    Cons

    The management team from the top down is ineffectual and lack basic management 101 skills. Rather than help improve performance of an employee, they fire them - a costly move. They don't believe in positive reinforcement. High turnover!

    Advice to Management

    Take courses in best management practices. Build a culture.

    I worked at Earth Resources Technology, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Good pay. Good benefits (before Affordable Heathcare Act).

    Cons

    The company is comprised of stand-alone contract units that are scattered throughout the US. My experience is that the company hungrily grabbed/won a government contract, hired a person who had previously worked on the contract (under another company) to "manage", and simply forgot about the contract and unit. It was a disaster. The individual who "managed" the unit and contract had no business being in charge of anything, and the entire contract was ripe with unprofessional behavior, personality disordered conduct, and bullying. In summary---perhaps not all of ERT's units are the same in culture, but the fact that the company would allow such misbehavior and dysfunction is evidence of a greater problem. I do not recommend the company as an employer to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Take some courses. Learn about culture. If not, you will entirely fail sooner or later, or get the heck sued out of you. The fish rots from the head down.
