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

    Pros

    ERM is a unique hybrid of science/engineering consulting and management consulting. We help our clients with business decisions and environmental compliance, and get them a better result than I've seen at other companies where they focus on doing a high-volume of reports or audits without understanding how the work affects the clients.

    I've worked at a couple big environmental engineering firms and ERM offers many things they don't:
    - At ERM environmental work is the main event, not second fiddle to engineering
    - ERM focuses on sustainability, and puts out an annual report that demonstrates these values
    - ERM has a foundation that contributes to sustainability programs around the globe
    - ERM offers international work opportunities if you want to move abroad to work.
    - ERM is owned by partners who are accountable for the success of the long term business, instead of being owned by Wall Street. They care about the employees and the outcome of the projects.

    My coworkers are fun, smart people and the partners care about the employees and the work they do. Everyday we get to do something good for the environment and have fun doing it.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours are long, but that is just consulting.

    Pros

    Clearly defined vision for the Company and its employees provided by Leadership;
    Collaborative culture that promotes diversity and inclusion;
    Employee development and retention of employees is highly valued;
    Menu of services and bandwidth of technical expertise positions ERM to provide great value proposition for its clients

    Cons

    None that come to mind;
    You need to have an entrepreneurial approach to your work so, if you don't have that, ERM/consulting may not be for you

    Advice to Management

    As you have already been demonstrating, continue to listen to employee feedback with an open mind and take appropriate actions to validate and address the feedback received. From previous employment experience I've had, there's nothing worse for employees than being asked for feedback and then seeing nothing done with it.

    I worked at Environmental Resources Management full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the people are nice. The work was interesting.

    Cons

    There are a lot of expectations, but little explanation of how to accomplish those expectations. For instance, a deliverable needs to be reviewed, but how that is supposed to happen is not explained and ends up being haphazard if done at all. A lot of critical information is not given to employees up front such as goals and expectations. Performance reviews are hit and miss if you get one at all. This is the only employer I have had that actually answered my questions dishonestly. There was no reason for the dishonesty so why not be truthful?

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront with employees and invest in them. They might stay long enough to be useful.
