I worked at Coneco Engineers and Scientists full-time
Great experience for recent graduates looking to get into environmental consulting
Young and fun work environment
Freedom and variety of projects
Very few unnecessary meetings and overhead tasks - you have a great amount of time and freedom to accomplish your tasks
LIttle to no female management
Not always enough projects and work to go around
Undesirable benefits and employee appreciation
Pro-profit, not pro-environment
Advice to Management
It seems the business model is to hire recent college graduates and keep turn-over high to keep payroll and service costs low. This is great for recent grads who need experience and can move on, while keeping those that are a good fit for the company. My advice, however, would be to let go of uninterested and incompetent workers. Having these people breeds negativity and lessens productivity in the office.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Coneco Engineers and Scientists (Bridgewater, MA).
One day of interview that lasted a few hours. Met with senior staff and discussed my background, what they were looking for, the kind of work they do, the clients they serve, their expectations, average tenure, and safety requirements. Never met with any of my to be colleagues, only my supervisors. The supervisors gave what appeared to be an accurate description of what to expect.
