    I have been working at Environmental Resources Management full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.
