    Pros

    Golars was started on December 24, 2008. In the matter of seven years, Golars became of the largest environmental consulting firm in Indiana with nearly 40 employees. Expanded services in six Midwest states with a second office in Illinois. Client retention rate is almost 100% based on the seven year history.

    Golars has excellent benefits program, its been over two years since an employee left the company to work for a someone else, also pays for over-time work.

    Every year all employees volunteer for a day, the company has donated over $200,000 so far to various charitable organization.

    The quality of work is excellent. Over 95% of the reports submitted to the clients are approved without comments. Golars is one the financially sound environmental companies, with relatively good backlog.

    Golars has some of the best equipment for their employees use.

    Cons

    New company, less diversified work, not well known in the industry

    Advice to Management

    Continue good work and its only matter of time before you are recognized as the best engineering firm in the State of Indiana.

    Pros

    This company has a limited time frame on market, you can't buy off the federal government.

    Cons

    Working here almost certainly destroys any reputation you may have in environmental consulting.

    Advice to Management

    Can't buy work forever, everyone is wise to your game and it will catch up to you.
