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

    Pros

    Competitive pay and willingness to pay more for good people. Competitive benefits. Management that cares about the employees. Opportunities for bonuses. Promotion from within.

    Cons

    There are a lot of great people working here, so the bar for high performance is set pretty high. It's also a contracting company, so uncertainty and anxiety at the end of each contract is typical. But, if you are really good at what you do, then they will do what it takes to keep you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work; keep standards high; and keep listening to your employees.

    Pros

    This company offers you an "in" into the federal government contracting market.

    Cons

    Do not by any circumstances accept a job from this company. They falsify information in future security clearance investigations and try to sabotage former employees. The HR department lies to cover the other employee's butts. They will claim and lie that you falsified records and your resume in order to try to sabotage you from getting a better job later in your career.

    Advice to Management

    Get the toxic people out of there and stop trying to sabotage people's future employment. It is disgusting that the higher ups let this happen. I'm shocked this company is still gaining work and hasn't been sued out of business yet.

    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

    The best company I have worked for in the government contractor field (15) yrs. Very organized, friendly employees, and managers. They are still growing, and the employees are given opportunities to grow with them.

    Cons

    There are no cons for me, maybe a better deli down stairs

    Advice to Management

    keep up the great work

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

    Pros

    The company has Stability, strong financials, and nice headquarters. Don't have too much to say that is good. Lots of the employees seem like they have given up, and they don't expect much of anything from the company.

    Cons

    There is no emphasis whatsoever on employee development or mentorship. Overtime is expected, leaving on time is frowned upon. Lots of backstabbing. Indifferent leadership. Extremely expensive benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of the employees seem like they have given up, and they don't expect much of anything from the company. The leadership is mocked and not respected. The leadership is very indifferent to any issues related to the employees. They are all about money. Focus on what you can give to your employees instead of what else you can get out of them.

  8. "Fun company and helpful management"

    Pros

    Quick responses to all inquiries, fun atmosphere while getting work done, management eager to offer guidance if you are eager to learn

    Cons

    Obviously as another reviewer stated, ERT is not based on a Silicon Valley culture; so although the people are friendly, there are few young people and some systems in the company could be updated

    Pros

    Company pays on time and HR is responsive.

    Cons

    ERT is infamous for hiring Project Managers or Contract leads that simply don't possess any work ethic and instead only know how to talk. They are then forced to let go of these PMs once the contract is driven to the ground and the client is furiously upset. Of course leading a bad mark on the company.

    Advice to Management

    Make note on lessons learned from previous mistakes, extremely with management recruitment.
