I have been working at Environmental Resources Management full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Some of the advantages of working at ERM is the ability to gain project experience quickly and add valuable experiences to one's resume.

Cons

The main disadvantage in my view is the low compensation ERM offers for the type of work. Projects can be demanding and require specialized knowledge which is simply not being compensated. Work-life balance is hampered by project deadlines and stoked by over-worked partner-level ERMers. ERM also does a poor job tracking its internal talent and is not uncommon to have talented staff unutilized and not being actively match to project internally. That is because ERM still operates as a network of independent offices, rather than ONE company (despite for years they have been trying to instill that culture).

    I have been working at Environmental Resources Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Best part of ERM is the strive for international, capital intensive projects. This allows exposure to different industries and projects internationally. The main sectors are Oil and Gas, Power, Mining and Manufacturing and Chemical.

    Cons

    Can be stressful and time intensive. Salaries are not great until you reach partner (then they are great). Low junior level staff retention. High senior level staff retention

    Advice to Management

    Pay Junior level staff more and offer better career tracks to increase Junior staff retention.
