Pros

ERM used to be the engineering leader in site investigation and remediation and contaminated site management. They enjoyed a good reputation for their skills and knowledge. Many of those experienced geologists are still around and most are very interested in sharing knowledge with junior staff and promoting an excellent product. However, the SIR and CSM service lines look like they are being phased out. Newer service offerings, (ex. information systems, EIA, sustainability, etc.) are not mature enough yet to draw a conclusion on quality and market eminence.

Cons

Very political and very closed-door leadership. There is absolutely no management training or mentoring so future partners are 'recognized' "the day they come in the door." Advancement appears to be based on political alignment and personality synergies more than on qualification or experience. "Partner-track" candidates are largely caucasian men. Lack of diversity in upper management appears to foster this status quo.

    Pros

    Easy, casual atmosphere. Interview was pretty straightforward. Good supervision (not too overbearing). Decent paycheck. Friendly people, Would recommend as a place to work

    Cons

    Was hoping for more people around my age (was interning here during one summer). Most people were friendly, but some didn't bother to get to know you.

    Advice to Management

    Hire interns for all different groups (IT, Marketing, etc) and have them get to know each other so it's more welcoming.

    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.

    Cons

    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.
