I have been working at Environmental Resources Management full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of interesting variety as an engineer. Many interseting projects working with experienced people right out of school. Lots of neat travel opportunities in the contaminated site management practice area. Company is on a strong growth track.

Cons

Average pay. Must have the ability to multi-task and switch gears very fast between projects and teams. Jobs require a lot of "business" tasks that might be handled by non-technical staff in other companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase junior salaries. It was justified to keep them average during the recession, but not now.

    Pros

    Partners do care about professional growth of the staff on their team, and would organize team building activities frequently. The company also often organize events to foster team spirits.

    Cons

    Each region of the firm operates more independently, therefore, not all offices function the same way. Some are not as friendly as others.

    Pros

    Some of the advantages of working at ERM is the ability to gain project experience quickly and add valuable experiences to one's resume.

    Cons

    The main disadvantage in my view is the low compensation ERM offers for the type of work. Projects can be demanding and require specialized knowledge which is simply not being compensated. Work-life balance is hampered by project deadlines and stoked by over-worked partner-level ERMers. ERM also does a poor job tracking its internal talent and is not uncommon to have talented staff unutilized and not being actively match to project internally. That is because ERM still operates as a network of independent offices, rather than ONE company (despite for years they have been trying to instill that culture).
