    Pros

    Great bosses. There were many divisions, but the one I was in was led well and had many opportunities. Still wondering why I left actually.

    Cons

    Not all the divisions had the autonomy that I had in mine.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of upper management, so my potential outlook seemed bleak.

    Cons

    long hours, no technical track (only management), very male dominated at upper levels

    Increase diversity, increase commitment to science/technical development

    I worked at GZA GeoEnvironmental full-time

    Pros

    Interesting Work, Big Name Clients

    Cons

    Expects over 60 hours of work a week, top heavy benefits and fraternity-like culture. If you're not one of the "good ol' boys" you won't fit in. High turnover in low level engineers

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the bottom of your ladder. Most people at the bottom aren't happy.

    I worked at GZA GeoEnvironmental full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the most fun people I've worked with, great 401k match, laid back work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Low pay and not a lot of room for advancement. People like it here and stay a while. This leads to senior position openings being few and far between. Those that do leave typically do for better pay, better opportunities, or both.

    I worked at GZA GeoEnvironmental full-time

    Pros

    I worked in 3 separate departments. Solid company overall. Big and interesting projects. Lots of internal resources for growth. Most of the people are very professional and friendly.

    Cons

    One department had poor management and some toxic team atmospheres, resulting in me leaving the company.

    Advice to Management

    Toxic teams were likely due to resentful junior staff. Most of the senior management are very receptive to junior staff concerns and would address them, but not entirely.

    Encourage junior staff to speak up and voice their concerns. When they do, ensure it is not only acknowledged, but acted upon.

    "Engineering Technician 1"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at GZA GeoEnvironmental full-time

    Pros

    Hands on experience in groundwater monitoring programs and environmental remediation. Adequate pay for entry level employment. A great mix of field work and office work.

    Cons

    Management kept the lower level employees in the dark about the health of the company. All year the company would be doing fantastic hitting all goals then around employee reviews the company would be doing very poorly. It would be a tactic to give as little raise as possible to its employees while management received bonuses.
