    I have been working at Environmental Resources Management full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on diverse projects and within disciplines outside of your academic expertise. Acquires smaller firms with excellent reputations within industry.

    Cons

    Salary is below competing firms primarily because positions are salary based but designed to require greater than 50 hours per week to avoid layoffs. Management has lost client confidence because talented staff leaves then projects backfill with "FTE" rather than qualified staff. Therefore, quality of the product diminishes and clients decline ERM proposals.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on staff more than Partner bonuses. As always, the bottom rung is critical to achieve deadlines and quality products. Retaining quality staff is critical to succeed in this market. It appears you are more focused on being acquired by a larger firm in the future than attending to the work on the table today.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Environmental Resources Management (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Before an in-person interview, they sent a pre-interview questionnaire. They said my answers would be assessed for the content and depth or answers as well as writing skills. Beyond career and employment-related questions, most related to skills received from thesis/research projects, what was learned, and how they are relevant to environmental consulting projects.
