"Waste of time, bad planning by upper management"

Former Employee - Staff Geologist in Pasadena, CA
Former Employee - Staff Geologist in Pasadena, CA

I worked at Delta Environmental full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Can't think of any, sorry.

Cons

They hired to many staff at one time and was in the middle of an environmental contract they couldn't do for the low bid price. As a staff I was yelled at if I went over by 0.25 hrs. They couldn't afford to train me but since I had no training I couldn't drill myself. I was left filling papers in the office. All project managers were over worked and couldnt train the staff. Quit after 3 months.

Advice to Management

Don't bid on a contract if you can't do the work for that price.

    Pros

    Very flexible with schedule
    Great people (local staff) to work with
    Fun environment (fun people)
    Smart and competent project managers
    Good opportunity to gain technical experience on petroleum remediation and investigation projects

    Cons

    Pay is below market (at least, in the Pacific Northwest).
    Corporate management is too removed from staff and therefore not supportive of staff or interested in keeping good staff happy.
    Most of the work is fixed fee, unit cost, extremely low rates for clients, so employee compensation is forced to be low and corporate management pushes 110% utilization of employees to maximize profits.
    Forget about bonuses.
    Company's standard cubicle quads (open floor plan) are good for staff communications but bad for privacy or phone calls with clients.
    Resource-sharing between business units was difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Be more supportive and respectful of staff when they do a good job.
    Offer occasional bonuses or incentives in an effort to retain good people.
    Also, try to at least pay in accordance with regional markets, instead of below the going rate.
    Re-organize business units so that resource-sharing is not a problem and so people can work on mulitple portfolios for different clients.
