    I have been working at ERRG full-time

    Pros

    - 20+ year old company that has all their sh*t together... very professional and have many employees who have worked with the company for over 10 years. Nowadays, it is not common to see so many people stay at a company for over 5 years, ERRG is different, it knows how to treat their employees right and keep them

    - Great work environment where you are not micromanaged and are trusted to do your job. The management trusts who they hire and will be vocal if there is an issue. For the most part, employees are extremely trusted. I have never experienced this in my professional career and treated with the respect that I do here. They let you work at your own pace and allow you to jump between tasks, as long as your deadlines are met

    - Multiple offices (Martinez, SF, Redmond, SoCal, Hawaii) not all packed into one location, so it creates a close-knit feeling of a small company but the benefits of a larger one with better pay, benefits, etc. that a small company may not have. Also more developed after 20+ years in business

    - Just the right sized company where it is not massive to where you feel lost and like a cog in the machine, but not too small where you know everyone. You can make a difference here and management/executives are willing to listen to lower employees

    - A very open company where even lower employees can be "in-the-know" about the company's financial situation or any major projects that are in the works. You feel respected because you are not an "outsider" from the executives, they are very involved with lower-level employees. This is experienced through at the "All-Hands Meeting" every year

    - Easy to ask for help, there are so many people willing to help who are just a phone call away

    - Annual reviews are very thorough to help you improve and praise what has been done well

    - Deeply caring employees and management

    - An amazing HR team who helps employees receive the best benefits

    - Very hard working employees... shout out to all our regional managers, executives, and engineers!

    Cons

    - A lot of management and engineers seems overworked

    - Intimidated by the extremely knowledgeable people who work here (especially all the engineers!)

    Advice to Management

    None!

    I have been working at ERRG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good team work between your co-workers. Everyone works together to get the job done, while looking out for each others safety.

    Cons

    There is poor communication between supervisor's, and foreman. Resulting in things and people falling through the cracks, which gets blamed on lower positioned people.

    Pros

    Company is Phoenix on the rise. Hopefully the positive trends continue.
    Very relaxed atmosphere.
    If you do good work you will be respected.

    Cons

    No bells and whistles - Not many gatherings or scenarios to get to know your co-workers. Limits collaboration and teamwork. There are Pot Lucks, but doesn't quite cut it.
    No 401K match
    Appear to be light on benefits for EEs

    Advice to Management

    Seems like the company is getting there, but expand events. Other than that keep up the successes and trickle down to the little people via such events/benefits/ etc!

    I have been working at ERRG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've only been here 3 years but have had the opportunity to work with leadership, back office, front office, scientists, engineers and folks in the field. I can honestly say that there are lots of good professional people here. I spend most of my waking hours here than with my family during the weekdays so the work environment is super important to me. I would have moved on if this wasn't a great place to work. Love you guys!

    Cons

    I'm hoping some of the benefits that were discontinued can come back soon.

    Advice to Management

    I don't think people need acknowledgment for doing work they're supposed to do. But if someone goes above and beyond, a simple "Thank you" or "Great job" goes a long way. If it starts from the top, I'm sure it'll make its way down throughout the company.

    I have been working at ERRG full-time

    Pros

    The staff. Everyone is willing to help and takes time to answer questions. The company will also pay for professional certifications (EIT, PE, PMP, etc.) which is a great perk.

    Cons

    Since it's a smaller company, the benefits aren't always as good as larger companies. Currently no 401k match. Hopefully that will change in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Not much, just keep doing what you're doing, and continue growing.

    I have been working at ERRG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Honest, hardworking people. Senior/regional management seem comprised of honest people who enjoy what they do, and who are long-time industry veterans. I truly like my coworkers and have not yet found any bad apples (hopefully it's not me!).

    Cons

    1. No company jet.
    2. No free McDonalds.
    3. I am getting fat because my coworkers constantly bring food to share at work.
    4. Our people work hard, but find me a job that isn't tough.
    5. If you are looking to make millions, go to Stanford Law School and become a patent attorney.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on employee safety, good culture, and serving our clients.
