    I have been working at Earth Resources Technology, Inc. (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Compared to the other contractors I have worked for, this one is a breath of fresh air. Atmosphere is easy going, not a lot of company demands on my time, so I am free to do the best I can do for the client. Useful monthly meetings at contractor site, with lunch hosted by ERT, has enabled me to meet all my colleagues and network. Easy going manager, available when needed--always gets back to me same day. Flexible on leave. They are winning contracts and expanding quickly.

    Cons

    Definitely lowballed me on the offer because they new they were the only game in town at the moment on where I wanted to go.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing, by and large. Resist the temptation to become like other contractors and load employees down with stuff that takes time away from the actual work. Keep it like a family.

    I worked at Earth Resources Technology, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    If you can stick it out, you can have NASA on your resume

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible
    Pay is not competitive
    Every Monday there is a 2 hour meeting to publicly shame you in front of the client
    The client is impossible to please
    No room for growth or advancement
    Most of the work is at least 300 times more tedious and cumbersome than it needs to be. The client increases the amount of useless info needed in the reports so that he can beat you over the head with it when you leave something out.
    Everything is report driven, and they are needlessly long.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up to the client.
    Actually value your employees and offer them competitive pay and benefits in the Bay Area.

    Pros

    Good place to groom your skills.
    Good pay but horrible pay schedule
    Good Benefits

    Cons

    Still a growing company.
    No tools, poor communication with management
    They treat workers without regard, your sub-contract could end anytime and you would be out of a job and the management would leave you in the dark.
    Need more robust infrastructure.
    They need to take care of the staff in remote locations and not make them feel neglected
    Management is hapazard

    Advice to Management

    The management needs serious restructuring. Money cannot be the goal.

    I have been working at Earth Resources Technology, Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers & peers are pleasant.

    Cons

    The management team from the top down is ineffectual and lack basic management 101 skills. Rather than help improve performance of an employee, they fire them - a costly move. They don't believe in positive reinforcement. High turnover!

    Advice to Management

    Take courses in best management practices. Build a culture.

    I have been working at Earth Resources Technology, Inc. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The overall culture that ERT creates is that of professionalism as well as a company that is "fun" to work for. ERT management truly cares about their employees and fosters an environment where an employees voice is not only heard, it is also acknowledged. I have been working on a contract that ERT won originally in 2007 and it has been one of the Best contracting jobs that I have ever had. There are competitive salaries along with generous benefits packages. Yearly events are planned and paid for by the company.....including Company Picnics and Holiday Parties. Starting from the CEO to all of the Management Team, all are courteous and truly appreciate their employees and what contributions that their employees make in the workplace. I have been contracting for over 20 years, have been with 3 different companies. I have to say that ERT is one of the best Employers out there.

    Cons

    I have nothing negative to say about my experience with ERT. After being with the company for over 8 years, they just keep getting better and better.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to management would be to "Keep doing the stellar job that you are doing". You truly seem to get that if you take good care of your employees, that you will continue to prosper and win more contracts. Clearly you do have a good name here in Silver Spring, MD.

    Kudos to Jingli and Staff! I consider it an honor to work for your company

    Pros

    Pretty good work/life balance allowed for flex schedules. On-site management tries to tend to employee needs, but it seems as if he is overworked thus can not attend to minor issues.

    Cons

    Salary is not competitive and raises are minimal despite my contract being in Silicon Valley. Health care options are ok and expensive for families. No opportunity for advancement since management is hired directly.

    Pros

    The company/managers barely communicated with me one on one for most part of my employment and considering my experience when they finally did, that was a good thing.

    Cons

    Ethnicity based company whose manager blatantly favors and sneaks unprofessionally with her subordinates. With the manager and the CEO's petty and non existing leadership , their approach for dealing with work place conflict with the customer is, at best, to watch on the sideline and side with an awful, bully customer managers when the opportunity present itself

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be less vicious and embrace diversity.
