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

    Pros

    There are a variety of projects to work on, there is an independent work environment and the company provides great benefits.

    Cons

    Managers play favorites, It's either micro-management or figure it out yourself, Some employees get away with laziness while other employees have to make up the workload and A few long time employees ruin the easygoing vibe of the office.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and realize the cliques that plague the office and some employees are not pulling their weight.

    Pros

    An interesting problem space if you are into environmental issues.

    Cons

    Not a software company - their focus is on GeoTechnical and GeoChemistry consulting. Software development is a money sink for them.

    I worked at GeoEngineers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    GeoEngineers is a company that does extremely well in taking care of its people. Not just in 'benefits' (which are fine), but in terms of company culture. There is a huge emphasis on taking care of it's people both professionally and personally. I learned a lot about the power and importance of building good relationships, and built many because of the quality of people there.

    The work life balance was very good for me.

    Cons

    Aging workforce of 50+ year old engineers doesn't cope well with change. Company says the path forward is doing things differently, breaking into new markets, leveraging technology, becoming a disruptor; but very little time or effort is dedicated to actually doing so. There's a lot of power held by a few who really get in the way of being better.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to put some real teeth behind change efforts, otherwise people are just going to continue to do what they've always done.

    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.
