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.

    Pros

    ERG is a great place to work if you're in certain work groups. There are many opportunities to switch groups, work on new projects and become 'the expert' in new areas of work. My fellow employees were smart, motivated, and hard-working. There is a certain pride that goes along with working for a company that does important environmental and policy work.

    Cons

    If you work for a manager who doesn't ecognize accomplishment, or even good work, then you may not get satisfactory reviews and raises. Bad behavior is sometimes tolerated from employees in very visible positions. I was shocked to have a door slammed in my face by a very senior person (fortunately not my manager).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good hiring practices but implement a more structured review process.
