Pros

Great benefits and great people to work with. Unfortunately, a few bad apples have ruined the place.

Cons

Management is extraordinarily top heavy. The number of technical staff is minor compared to management. Staff typically work very long hours and do way more work than they should and don't get any constructive feedback from management.

The environmental group is plagued with political infighting amongst the staff.

Advice to Management

Hire more staff people. Spread the work load around, fairly. Give equal opportunities to all field staff, instead of allowing particular staff to work only in the office and others only in the field.

    Pros

    Great CEO, optimistic about newly developed strategic plan

    Cons

    GeoEngineers hires great people, most of which have a masters degree but your salary to be below the poverty line for the greater Seattle area. It's frustrating to work so hard attaining such high academic achievements (a requirement to get hired) to then start your career where you can barely afford to live, let alone pay off student loans.

    Advice to Management

    Really look at employee satisfaction, life/ work balance, happiness with position and I think you will be shocked. The current surveys you provide do not address the real issues and probably give you a false sense of employee satisfaction. Increased pay will help greatly.
