    Pros

    Great work life balance, very friendly people, quiet spaces to work. Great benefits. Employee centered environment. Managers are very responsive and inviting with any concerns or questions. Definitely a lot of growth potential.

    Cons

    Can be challenging at times with the workload but that is the fun part being able to juggle responsibilities and priorities. I wouldn't necessarily call it a con because it pushes you to learn, grow and develop in your role.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. It is refreshing to come to a new company and be in an environment where you can tell that you want your team to do well and are willing to provide whatever training is necessary to assist in that process. The benefits help to keep employees engaged and wanting to come in each week.

    Pros

    Talented individuals worldwide. Company truly is the technical leader in environmental services. Excellent problem solving teams. Project execution is very, very good. Benefits are very good. Compensation is probably lower, but work environment and benefits good tradeoff.

    Cons

    Company is de-centralized, but try to be a centrally managed company at the same time. Synergy between locations and divisions can be trying, but usually works very well. Not enough trust from corporate to the local business units, often hindering business.

    Pros

    High pay, good benefits (though have been declining), ability to transfer between locations.

    Cons

    Poor policy, company wont put anything in writing allowing them to change policy between locations and at will with mgmnt change. Employees treated like dirt, pass up for promotion with inch impotent mngmt. 9 years with company x-fered to industrial from municipal O & M. 4 project mngrs, 5 HR mngrs, 2 area mngrs, 2 maint. super's in 2 1/2 years at current location, while business went south. But mngmt stood behind incompetents. Attitude is mngmt can do no wrong!

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach! Look at employees who don't fit in "Make no waves" category, they might just care!!! Make no waves might be numb!!!

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity. The organization needs a lot of work. For someone who is younger in their career, this is a great place to cut your teeth.

    Cons

    This place used to be a good place to work. Work life balance is lacking. Management is very critical of your work product. No tolerance now for anything that questions the status quo. No communication from senior leadership regarding direction.

    Advice to Management

    Need for stronger leadership and communication during the reorganization. Need for tolerance and promotion of core values and civility towards one another. Need to ensure all employees are treated equally and fairly. Support of core teams is needed to ensure that they have the tools and support needed through the change.
