    Pros

    ERM always puts safety first. Recent changes in management gives new air within the company. Strong global network and easy access to technical experts are very helpful for project management and execution. Collaboration among peers are strongly encouraged. Most supervisors push employees to explore different types of work and will not let anyone gets pigeon-holed. There is a good opportunity for career advancement if you know how to network internally. Some offices are flexible and allow employee work from home partially.

    Cons

    Different offices have slightly different cultures, so aspects like working from home, flexibility, and opportunity may vary slightly.

    Pros

    Depending on what work you sell, you will gain diverse experience and be forced to learn how to build client relationships, manage and budget projects and compete with your coworkers to meet the bottom line. You will learn how to fend for yourself and be spared by the wolves, or otherwise be sabotaged. Great coffee machines and dinnerware.

    Cons

    Dog eat dog. Cut throat.

    Open work spaces. Cubes, even for Partners.

    A lot of travel required to meet your numbers.

    Don’t be alarmed if you pass a coworker or manager in the office only to have them ignore you or not make eye contact when you say hello. Maturity and professionalism is not a strong point of this firm.

    Bottom line focused. Work-life balance is frowned upon, 60 hour workweek is not abnormal. Flexible work hours and location, unless you have a family, then you’ll be discriminated for doing so. “Cold hearted business” has led to “mean coworkers.” Many people fear for their jobs. Successful employees will sell work during the day and complete their billable work in the evenings or over the weekend.

    Personal development is discouraged unless you do it on your own dime and time. The company has tailored training that supports its own business goals.

    No to little bonus, though it is advertised to job candidates and given mostly to Partners who will come up with any excuse to hold onto their own bonuses and not giveaway to the lower level staff working their arses off. Pay is poor and not up to industry standards. You will not be promoted or given a raise, unless you have very much exceeded your previous year’s goals and have a full pipeline for the following year already in the bag.

    High turnover because the company and managers don’t care. They’re all too busy trying to save themselves and keep the investors happy with their lofty promises each year.

    Many old school and ratchet personalities who are allowed to trample others because of their history with the firm and their $$$.

    If you are a glutton for punishment and enjoy feeling like you’re never good enough, work here. If not, steer clear.

    Advice to Management

    There is no hope.

    Pros

    Ability to move up for talented individuals, Clients are some of the most well known companies in U.S.

    Cons

    Travel time exceeded 70% when 30% was advertised. No ability to work on projects you wanted to, management decided what you worked on.
