    "A company that is not Veteran friendly"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - UXO Technician in Fort Irwin, CA
    Former Employee - UXO Technician in Fort Irwin, CA

    Pros

    Company logo looks kinda interesting.

    Cons

    This company has fired at least 10 veterans at the Ft Irwin site in the past year. Nepotism is in fashion. Too many related people are managing the site. Company Policy 105 from the Employee Handbook is not enforced. Firings are frequent. Anyone with experience and team spirit is no longer employed. Leadership is non-existent. Good place to work if you like continual threats or just like poor treatment.

    Advice to Management

    Very simple - find people with more field knowledge and leadership skills to manage and control your Ft Irwin site. The UXO field is dangerous. Do not allow incompetent people run your operations.

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

    Pros

    ERRG provides a positive and challenging environment to grow your career. There is the corporate support to allow you to succeed without being micromanaged. The company has real safety and quality control programs that work and are not just for show. Coming from another small company I was amazed at how well the company is run and what great work they do. I have had a great experience so for and hope it continues for the foreseeable future.

    Cons

    The communication between the corporate office and regional offices could improve. The compensation and benefits would probably be better at a larger company.

    I have been working at ERRG full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    This company provides a high degree of autonomy and opportunity for growth at every level. Very supportive of ideas outside the box. If you are self-motivated and can show you can get the job done no one will micro manage you. Office environment is friendly, cooperative, and sometimes intense (deadline driven).

    Cons

    Small company with few corporate resources (do everything yourself from procurement to xeroxing).

    Advice to Management

    Work on consistent, clear communication. Sometimes there are too many/mixed messages coming from the ownership group.

    I worked at ERRG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Depends on the person in charge of you when you work there. I was lucky enough to get 2 great bosses in a row and I was thrown into the deep end almost immediately . One took the heat for me when I made a mistake and the other was very knowledgeable. Extremely nice co-workers and like the other person said the employees are very much in cliques. Luckily, I started before these cliques were formed so I was on the in crowd. I have no idea if this is still the case but I got to visit gorgeous places, do interesting work, be thrown

    Cons

    Their is a ceiling at which unless you dedicate your life to ERRG you will stop advancing. This happened to me. I decided to switch over to the construction based side of the project work and it was a giant mistake because I had autonomy before and now I had multiple bosses.I found myself at the bottom of the totem pole again and given projects that others had messed up. For example, I was given a project that was impossible to turn around and make a profit from, let alone minimize losses. The work hadn't even started and we had spent almost all our money. I began to get stressed out b/c the day was never over. If a gust of wind blew the tarp off a pile of soil I had to hop in my car and go cover it.

    One time when the fence blew over due to a poor job by a new laborer setting it up. I was called and asked to go to the Presidio and pick it back up. I was honest and said I'm out with my friends at a bar. I told them, "I can't go to the site now. I've had a few too many." This was the beginning of the "he isn't a team player BS".

     As I began to work more on the construction side, my favorite groundwater projects were taken away and I began to run out of work to do. It was a HUGE mistake on my part. Also, the amount of trash talking about other employees that occurs within the company is not right. I can only imagine what they said about me. One mistake and they will tell stories about the time that person made a mistake FOREVER. It gets old very fast hearing the same stories over and over again about that time.....

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. If an owner or senior manager is coming on site and slowing down a project then he probably is. There is no advantage of lying about this for the employee. Its their boss. The rumor mill was true and a senior employee was doing things unbecoming of a senior employee. Set an appropriate example for the rest of the work force.

    Pros

    The people, local, ability to grow quickly in any profession and have a greater impact on what you accomplish that you can not have at larger companies.

    Cons

    Lacks formal strategic planning, although general direction the company is heading is known. Company has experienced some growing pains due to fast growth in the past 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Develop strategy for the company and communicate from the top down.

    Pros

    Other than meeting some amazing hard working individuals, I have learned what makes a company good and bad. Learned to spot issues with management.

    Cons

    Nepotism is a huge issue at this company, ERRG seemed pretty promising at the start of the contract. They had issue after issue it seemed like and went down hill pretty quick. If you work there just keep quiet and lay low to avoid getting backstabbed or fired at will.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at who is the real issue, Its not the workers.
