    Pros

    Some access to a diversity of work. Some potential to grow/be promoted.

    Cons

    Very disorganized corporate structure, leading to a variety of experiences, good and bad. The pay also varies greatly, with some technical and senior employees paid competitive salaries, and middle-management and entry-level positions paid below competitive rates.

    I worked at Eastern Research Group, Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people at ERG are genuinely nice. The environment is friendly, and fellow colleagues are there to help you, not to compete with you. The work schedule is very flexible, and if need be you can work from home on occasion. There are some wonderful, considerate people, and the company strives to help you solve personal issues.

    Cons

    ERG's fantastic support for personal issues doesn't extend to professional issues. It is a challenge to get feedback from managers, even when prompted. This is mostly because they want to be nice, and make everyone feel comfortable, but it ultimately presents a challenge to personal development, and growth within the company. Furthermore, though ERG strives to build a strong community within the office, it's not an ideal place to build your social life outside of there. Employees for the most part have their social groups outside the office.

  3. "Great People, Lack of Innovation"

    I have been working at Eastern Research Group, Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    ERG is filled with smart, kind, hard-working colleagues. The work has a positive mission helping federal environmental initiatives. ERG really emphasizes work-life balance and rarely expects you to work more than 40 hours a week, which lowers job stress.

    Cons

    The pay is too low if you're not an engineer. Management doesn't foster career development; you really need to pave your own way, and you'll often end up languishing on the same projects for years (although of course with new ones thrown in to mix it up). ERG is behind the times because federal government work doesn't foster much innovation. It's not an environment for questioning.
