    I have been working at GeoEngineers full-time

    Pros

    Great CEO, optimistic about newly developed strategic plan

    Cons

    GeoEngineers hires great people, most of which have a masters degree but your salary to be below the poverty line for the greater Seattle area. It's frustrating to work so hard attaining such high academic achievements (a requirement to get hired) to then start your career where you can barely afford to live, let alone pay off student loans.

    Advice to Management

    Really look at employee satisfaction, life/ work balance, happiness with position and I think you will be shocked. The current surveys you provide do not address the real issues and probably give you a false sense of employee satisfaction. Increased pay will help greatly.

    Pros

    Flexible company, good benefits and salary, employee owned, a variety of clients and projects, several offices throughout the Puget sound area.

    Cons

    Having an environmental planning focus in a in a company that is primarily geotechnical engineering is difficult. In order to have a successful career track you have to be voted by your peers to become an associate or Prinicipal.

    I have been working at GeoEngineers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Friendly place to work because peer staff make it so!
    -Great benefits for family.
    -At the time of writing this review, the executive management is probably its strongest that I have seen it in years.
    -The company isn't cheap on everything, but rather well off and is also well respected by their competition.
    -The bitter staff (as they happen to make their way into any company) don't seem to want to stick around too long.

    Cons

    -Both Redmond and Seattle office locations make getting to work difficult unless one lives in their proximity. (However, the commute to other remote offices isn't as big of an issue).
    -Some management is too grand-fathered in their positions, but could use some shaking up now and then to make sure they are still well-suited for the company.

    Advice to Management

    -Reward current staff more by promoting within first if possible, versus bringing in outside candidates.
    -Work on molding all of the various offices together to function more as a collective unit versus the remote offices that they are.
    -Need a better review system of managers by their direct reports.
