    Pros

    This is a great place to get your start in CEQA and environmental consulting. This company is very employee forward, looking to help develop your career.

    Cons

    Steep learning curve for entry positions. And some project managers are not always willing to help teach or mentor the new employees. However, there are enough that are willing to teach that it isn't really a con.

    Lots of great people to work with. Large variety of Project Managers and different projects.

    Cons

    Not much raises/promotions. Vertical growth is limited due to large amount of senior people, but lack of junior staff.

    Advice to Management

    Consider internal growth for the employees not as an external title but as a way for employees to feel important.
