Pros

The work is challenging, there is a diverse opportunities to work on a variety of different projects. Upper level seems to be very competent. Will learn a lot over a short period of time.

Pay is average or below average. Not enough training provided. A lot of pressure to be billable. Company is very profit oriented. Projects usually have a tight budget.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you do, it seems to work. Maybe improve employee pay package.

    Pros

    As a whole, ERM offers a challenging environment with opportunities to develop your knowledge and be part of teams involved in interesting projects. There is vast opportunity to work with other cultures across the globe and, if your skills and qualifications are right, for global travel and involvement with colleagues in other offices. Good opportunity to work directly with clients on ongoing projects of large scope. The company offers many training opportunities to advance your knowledge and your interpersonal skills, whether company-created courses or external courses the company subscribes to and incorprates into its culture. Company promotes and encourages personal professional certification efforts.

    Cons

    There is a disconnect between management and the people. The "People First" strategy is more empty-words internal marketing than a real approach backed up by actions. The drive of billable hours is understandable for a consulting firm but the underlying message of moving non-billable time to project time is just short of truthful time reporting. Senior partners push out an elitist attitude that leaves many staff distrustful and feeling as if they are no more than cogs in the wheel of partner success. Bonus program is uneven and focused towards the partners rather than those who work on projects and deal with the clients face-to-face on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the people. Allow staff to solicit and review managers.

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

    Pros

    Lots of super smart talented people who are pragmatic and business focussed yet also care about the environment and social issues. Passionate to help companies do better for the planet and people. Almost all Partners seem to be super nice people to work with who care and support work-life balance. Wonderful new female CEO who is working to improve things and seems open and progressive and keen to listen.
    Fantastic safety culture and pretty decent work-life balance. London IT team are face to face and a great support. Bringing in a new mentoring and coaching approach. Seniors can work innovatively in some roles and do their work as they wish assuming doing decently towards targets.
    Great Sustainability reporting and ERM Foundation pretty amazing and inspiring.

    Cons

    Need to keep talent. Need more investment in external reputable academic study and certifications. Need lower billability targets for many people so they can juggle training, learning, marketing, team building, admin, safety, etc.
    Wish London office had more greenery, daylight, trees.
    Need to promote people faster in London. Some promotions turned down in unfair ways:- need more feedback and coaching for talented seniors.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on keeping talent. Lots of amazing people here but still invest in training them and if they leave it's not a great ROI! Perhaps pay a little better when needed to keep people or offer more time off, a lower billability rate, study support, whatever can be done.
