    Pros

    Semi- flexible hours
    young people
    will hire people straight out of college
    lunch and learns

    Cons

    I applied for a Sustainability Consultant position and was offered the position of Energy Analyst about 3 weeks later. There was no second interview which should have been the 1st red flag, the 2nd red flag was that the position they offered me was different than the one I applied for. I had doubts because I got negative vibes from the person who was going to supervise me during the interview and that turned out to be the case once I was in the company. The supervisor was very unfriendly, constantly giving me attitude and talking down to me, and provided very little guidance and training. I had to report this supervisor to HR several times while I was there. Although the job posting states that they provide training once on the job there is no formal training and you have to fend for yourself. The company adopts a sink or swim strategy and the turnover is very high. They are constantly hiring new people, it seems like most people stick around for 2-3 years and then leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to provide younger and inexperienced supervisors with extensive management and communication training before allowing them to take on more responsibility. A person may be very good at their job and have a certain technical expertise but that doesn't mean that they have the skills nor the maturity to effectively supervise or train new hires.
