    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.

    Pros

    Company gives you flexibility in both work approaches and work schedule. Freedom to pursue opportunities in the market and choose your own career path.

    Cons

    The organizations is pretty compartmentalized between offices and business units. Not a lot of collaboration across the organization. There are also quite a few big egos in the company that can be hard to work with.
