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

Pros

- normally lots of work
- great place to get networked with real companies
- primarily hire from without

Cons

- fair to poor pay
- non-existant growth opportunities within the company
- primarily do not hire from within

Advice to Management

Stop treating non-lifers like rented mules. The high turnover is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Responsibility for the companies failings is yours. It can't be subcontracted; you're the common denominator.

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

    Pros

    Primary contract is onsite work with NOAA. That ensures an 8 hour workday, a schedule that matches the government, and it's convenient to the metro and buses. Some of the work is very interesting and there are opportunities for lateral moves across projects if you want a change.

    Cons

    The company doesn't stand up for its employees even when the customer may be out of line or just plain wrong. Quick to fire. Despite the contract not being personal services the company allows meet and greets that equal interviews. Task orders are won or lost strictly on price and the company grows (and shrinks) by winning work from other companies and absorbing their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treating people fairly doesn't really take much more effort than ignoring them.
