    I have been working at Integral Consulting part-time

    Pros

    Amazing colleagues, very interesting project work, good company culture and benefits. There is a real emphasis on having a work/life balance, and plenty of room for professional growth if you work hard.

    Cons

    The company is too top heavy, and salaries are good, but not great.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to hire a CEO, CFO, etc. to properly run and grow the business. Company is run by very intelligent people, but they're scientists and technical experts, not businessmen and women. This would mean some growing pains, but it would pay dividends in the long run; no one has the cojones to say this, but it needs to be said, and heard. The powers-that-be really need to invest in junior and mid-level staff in order to keep them; salaries are good, but not very competitive compared to similar consulting firms. It makes more sense to pay to keep the worker bees, rather than paying new hires to replace them. Otherwise, keep the positive culture, cohesiveness, and collaborative spirit going.

    I worked at Integral Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone was kind, throughout the company. The structure was remarkably flat without people looking down on entry-level employees. There was a feeling that the experienced management was always helping to develop and groom the younger employees. That is good to see in any company.

    Cons

    Finding billable hours was occasionally difficult when you start. However this goes away quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps have a more structured project-to-staffing hierarchy for internally distributing and staffing projects.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn and grow. Very good pay. You are trusted to do a good job and non micromanaged.

    Cons

    Atmosphere is very cold and corporate. People don't interact face to face much. Can be very isolating for new hires. In the time I've been here, many staff have left or been laid off.

    I worked at Integral Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Management listens to your desires for growth and tries to find you appropriate opportunities. All the offices I visited are fantastic environments with natural light and without cubicals for the most part. Supervisors do not micromanage and most of them seem to be good advocates of their employees. Most of the people I worked with were friendly and generally kind people.

    Cons

    Typical highs a lows of environmental consulting... work is feast or famine and you're usually worried about lay offs during the famines. (However, while lay offs did happen they seemed slower to lay people off than other firms I have worked for).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive office atmosphere you had in the past.

    Pros

    Diverse, interesting and challenging work. The experience here is what you make it - if you are driven and hard working there will be many opportunities to excel and build your career. Team oriented environment.

    Cons

    Like any consulting firm - the ebbs and flows of work need to be navigated and there are periods that feel to busy and those that feel too light.

    Pros

    Integral tends to avoid commodity work, so each project is unique, challenging, and an opportunity to do something interesting and rewarding. The people tend to have higher education degrees, and Integral fosters an environment of specialization and research. If you are passionate in a specialized subject, Integral is a great place to explore that in your work - the projects are very diverse. It's also a small enough firm that, if you do great work, you'll be noticed. It's employee-owned, transparent about financial health, and fosters good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Like any small-to-mid-size firm, Integral can be susceptible to sudden losses due to unanticipated stops of work on large projects.

    Pros

    Integral really tried to hire the best of the best and is an especially good place to work for highly technical consultants with specialized areas of expertise. Salaries for higher level staff are higher than most firms - very good benefits and work life balance.

    Cons

    As the company has grown, it has had a hard time developing and keeping junior staff. In an effort to expand business areas, senior management have made some missteps at the expense of junior staff. Can also be a little too lax on time off or flexible schedules which can impact coworkers. Not enough business savvy senior folks.

    Pros

    I have worked at several environmental consulting firms, and have found my time at Integral to be the best. It is a difficult industry that may not be suited for everyone, but if you have the will to perform this type of work, you can go far at Integral.

    I enjoy the culture, and interact with the highest levels of management on a daily basis. I appreciate seeing them working hard along with more junior staff to make deadlines. I believe they care about the work and integrity of the firm and don't check out early and leave others to finish the work. This is a rarity in the consulting world. If you work hard, you will be given opportunities.

    Cons

    There have been some recent growing pains during the growth from a small to medium sized company, but I feel that this growth has also presented additional opportunities for staff.
