    I worked at AARC Environmental full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am just appreciative that I discovered the red flags before it was too late. The coffee was decent, though.

    Cons

    Doesn't believe in having a personal life. Big on micro-management. Discourages employees from talking to one another (i.e., cannot have lunch together). Delays paychecks if they cannot account for what you did every minute during the workday.

    Advice to Management

    Relax. Trust your employees with doing their job. People don't work well if they must constantly look over their shoulder.

    I have been working at AARC Environmental (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for AARC off and on for about 7 years. I started very young (21) and left for another opportunity. I never felt right at any other company. AARC is family and HOME!

    Cons

    We are understaffed. Everyone that works here has been here for over 1 year but we need more. Business is booming and we need more employees to keep it up.

    I worked at AARC Environmental full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learn a variety of businesses and if you like travel, you will get plenty of it. Training was decent but it was trial by fire is most cases.

    Cons

    Expected work hours for salary employees was a bit steep. Favoritism was noticeable.

    Advice to Management

    Manage with respect and dignity, not yelling and threatening.

    Pros

    It's a good environment. Fast paced!! Small Company and employees at times are pampered. It had a lot of tenured employees!!!

    Cons

    Every Company has it's opportunities!! When employees decide to come on board they need to understand you are working for a mom and pop company so you will be required to wear several hats.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!!!

    I worked at AARC Environmental full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I learned a lot about environmental regulations. I did not have to sit at a desk from 9-5. It was a good first job.

    Cons

    The hours are long, especially considering the low pay. Salaried workers do not receive overtime, so managers do not care about piling on more work and making you stay late. You often have to travel for days with little or no notice. You have to pay out of pocket for gas, meals, and hotels when travelling and then wait weeks or months to be reimbursed.

    Advice to Management

    provide better work/life balance, pay expenses quicker or provide better advances, plan better for travel

    I worked at AARC Environmental full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As an environmental consulting firm that provides compliance-related services, they seem to have a good concept. Managers appear smart and informed.

    Cons

    New hires should not get comfortable, even when getting positive feedback. AARC's reputation in the industry is as a company that does not value or respect employees, and rightly so.

    Advice to Management

    Foremost, be honest with your staff. Also? Rely less on 2x/week Skype meetings. You spend 20 minutes each meeting just saying "Can you hear me?" and end up going to conference call service 80% of the time. Not very efficient.
