I worked at EBI Consulting

Pros

They're good enough at what they do, and people are generally very nice. Everyone in HR and Marketing is great.

Cons

There's not enough communication between divisions and it's too much of a family business for what's now a mid-size company. They have no interest in progress.

    Pros

    Top performers are routinely recognized for their contribution, and the company has made adjustments to the management structure over the past year to provide more opportunities for advancement. Diversified service lines offer many avenues for employees to advance their careers, if they show initiative and aptitude. Generally speaking, the company places a greater value on quality of work more than quantity of hours. Those who succeed are those who consistently take on challenges, exceed expectations, and ask for more. If you sit back and do your 40 hours per week and wait for a promotion to fall in your lap, well, you may be waiting a long time.

    Cons

    Being such a decentralized company, employee engagement is always a challenge. A 40-hour week is definitely not the norm, and you can get overwhelmed if you don't learn to say "no", which you are fully empowered to do. It comes down to each individual's personal work/life balance equation. Even though the company has expanded advancement opportunities, they are still relatively limited. Those who work in remote locations far from the corporate office have to work harder to be recognized for their efforts. Establishing good professional relationships within the company is critical to success, so if you don't possess good interpersonal relationship skills, you are at somewhat of a disadvantage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue efforts to improve remote employee engagement. There is still much to be done in this area.

    Pros

    Flexible work situations (remote status encouraged)
    Some Discretion given to employee schedules
    Good support for key business areas (environmental due diligence and site acquisition services)
    Firm has some decent technology to support commodity services

    Cons

    80% of workforce is remote, this can make it difficult to reinforce firm culture
    Strong top down management style
    Dissent is not encouraged
    EBI is a family owned business and the current management structure reflects this fact
    Employee engagement is lower on the totem pole than at most competitors
    High turnover with senior management-hard to drive improvements
    Difficult to chart career path unless employee is well aligned with family
    Profit motive trumps most infrastructure and employee engagement initiatives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move to higher employee engagement culture
    Create incentives to keep key senior managers
    Consider modifying ownership structure to encourage longevity
