    Pros

    Awesome peers, flexible time and schedule, excellent work environment, great clients, independence for self management.

    Pros

    The work environment is casual and there is flexibility with scheduled when allowable. People are generally friendly. Benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    The company is very compartmentalized between offices and groups. Offices and groups do not communicate well within the company even when two separate groups are working for the same client on the same project. Work loads are not distributed evenly between field staff. There is a high degree of favoritism implemented when distributing work loads. The culture encourages clicks and exclusion at the whim of project management.

    Advice to Management

    Improve scheduling practices to create a fair work environment. Insure all employees are afforded the opportunity perform without letting middle management make all of the staffing decisions.

    I have been working at GeoEngineers full-time (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 Management

    -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.

    Amazing team. Everyone is very helpful. You learn from well trained managers. Good work/life balance. Really good benefits, especially if you have a family. Room for growth and advancement.

    Like any company there are some people that can be harder to work with than others.

    I worked at GeoEngineers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The majority of the support staff are great people. They are true professionals and wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    Upper management caters only to their "favorites", while other, exceptional workers go unnoticed and get abused to the point of quitting.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees, they are the ones driving your business! You have lost some really talented professionals by being too top heavy, short sighted, and partisan in your treatment of support staff.

    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 Management

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