Management is top heavy and totally disconnected from the realities of the staff

I worked at GeoEngineers

Pros

Great benefits and great people to work with. Unfortunately, a few bad apples have ruined the place.

Cons

Management is extraordinarily top heavy. The number of technical staff is minor compared to management. Staff typically work very long hours and do way more work than they should and don't get any constructive feedback from management.

The environmental group is plagued with political infighting amongst the staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more staff people. Spread the work load around, fairly. Give equal opportunities to all field staff, instead of allowing particular staff to work only in the office and others only in the field.

    I have been working at GeoEngineers full-time

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible work schedule if you want it. Opportunities to work from home when you need to.

    Cons

    Experienced scientists and engineers are often forced to complete tasks several levels below them because senior management does not hire enough staff. Company puts profit before its people. Compensations is lower that all firms I have worked for in the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more staff. Make the firm a better place to work. Instill pride and loyalty in your employees.

    I have been working at GeoEngineers full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -Friendly place to work because peer staff make it so!
    -Great benefits for family.
    -At the time of writing this review, the executive management is probably its strongest that I have seen it in years.
    -The company isn't cheap on everything, but rather well off and is also well respected by their competition.
    -The bitter staff (as they happen to make their way into any company) don't seem to want to stick around too long.

    Cons

    -Both Redmond and Seattle office locations make getting to work difficult unless one lives in their proximity. (However, the commute to other remote offices isn't as big of an issue).
    -Some management is too grand-fathered in their positions, but could use some shaking up now and then to make sure they are still well-suited for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Reward current staff more by promoting within first if possible, versus bringing in outside candidates.
    -Work on molding all of the various offices together to function more as a collective unit versus the remote offices that they are.
    -Need a better review system of managers by their direct reports.
