    Pros

    Great benefit package, great projects and opportunities, a good place to learn, wonderful colleagues

    Cons

    terrible senior staff, detached from project and employees. Too hands off on important projects and give lousy feedback to employees. Owners seem uninterested in projects except for financial gain.

    Advice to Management

    stop putting all your eggs in one basket. there are a ton of opportunities for growth in the environmental field but you must get rid of senior staff that do not yield resutls
