    I worked at Clarke Environmental full-time

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers willing to help, great benefits, full week of Christmas vacation

    Cons

    Hours, not much training or support, hostile coworkers not willing to help, no personal or professional growth, some ideas and concerns go unheard, no schedule flexibility, too much stress that really affects what little life you have outside of work

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to listen to your employees and hear out their concerns as well as their long term career goals to try and retain more employees. Hire more people in upper management everyone is spread too thin
