    Pros

    Good opportunity to work with with people supporting various clients (Army, Air Force, and the Environmental Protection Agency). Fair salary and great benefits.

    Cons

    The current contracting paradigm of contracts being awarded based upon lowest price technical acceptable determination is troublesome. Quality companies like HGL are losing contracts to less qualified less experienced firms.

    Advice to Management

    Management has a good strategy to remain a competitive viable business. Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Hydrogeologic full-time

    Pros

    Non-management colleagues are, for the most part, knowledgeable and enjoyable to work with. Support amongst those employees tends to be high, which is necessary due to the cons.

    Cons

    Management is very poor, to put it bluntly. Pay is average-to-below average. Favoritism abounds, and true career growth isn't likely here. I was grossly under employed during my employment; since moving on I've increased both my pay and responsibility quite significantly (in a very short time-frame at that), and I feel I lost valuable career time while there. If you're in a technical field, your opportunities to perform state-of-the-art work here is limited, and you'll likely spend a lot of your time being under utilized and intellectually underwhelmed.

    Advice to Management

    A complete management overhaul is in order. Chase the right projects. Increase your wins by doing this. You have capable staff, but you're failing to utilize said staff fully.
