I should have kept looking...

Environmental Scientist (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA

ProsThe Human Resources and GIS Departments were great to work with. IT support was good too.

ConsVery high turnover in senior and junior staff and management. Few women in senior positions - certainly no where close to the 50 percent it should be. No training at the start - you are placed at a desk and then you are on your own. Written requests to management went unanswered - it was like a black hole. (eg, change of status, training and conference requests, etc). Little cooperation between the field scientists and much of the work is for the fossil fuel industry. The renewable energy department is non-existant and undersupported. The client-firm relationship is too friendly, favoritism abounds, and field observations were skewed in the reports, or buried, or in at least one instance, completely changed. Too many yes men.

The office where I worked is not on a bus line for those who perfer public tranportation. There are a few individuals who are personally concerned with sustainability and even handled empting the recycling bins, but its pretty much a green wash.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe new fossil fuel iniative announced by Corporate is folly in both the short and long term.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
