  • Senior Management
Former Employee - Project Professional in Redmond, WA
Former Employee - Project Professional in Redmond, WA
No opinion of CEO

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.
