    Pros

    You will be paid on time. Yes!

    Coffee is provided. Yes!

    It seems like decent place to get your geospatial career started, one or two years spent clicking your mouse all day will allow you to put something on your resume before leaving.

    If you like to be left alone this is perfect for you, as geomatics management will rarely come and talk to you. No joke my supervisor has not said a word to me in ten working days.

    There is frequently extra pizza or Qdoba from meetings, you will not be involved in the meetings but you can eat their leftovers. Win!

    Flexible hours.

    Many geomatics employees are looking for other work, so you can network and help each other find different companies to work with.

    Cons

    Bland, tedious, and unchallenging work that will not change from day to day.

    A college degree is not needed at all to perform my daily tasks, but is a requirement to get your application through HR.

    No path towards advancement or opportunity to grow.

    Guidance from supervisors is non-existent. I have no idea if I am doing satisfactory or poor work.

    Many people are unhappy and openly talk about applying to other companies and their interviews.

    A companywide mentorship program is non-existent in the Geomatics department.

    Management gives the impression that they are unhappy.

    No one says anything when you sneeze. You remain with a snotty tissue and no blessings.

    Any jokes about bringing a twelve pack to a company BBQ on a Friday afternoon will be met with stern smiles and disapproving comments from senior employees.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees. Simply asking them about their day will show that you care about them and the work that they do. The art of communication is the language of leadership.

    Say hello, good morning, good evening to your co-workers.

    Train, lead, and mentor your employees. Develop a clear path for growth that your ambitious employees can focus on. Why would you want minimally trained subordinates?

    Push information down to your employees, they should not have to pull information from you. Uninformed employees are just as lost as untrained employees.

    Leadership is not about a title, it is about impact, influence, and inspiration. You have to inspire your employees or they will do poor quality work.

    Workers do not leave bad companies they leave bad managers.

    Pros

    None unless you like being pigeon holed into a job with no advancement similar to working on a glorified assembly line. A great place for under achievers who have no drive and have no desire for advancement.

    Cons

    There is no opportunity in the geospatial department. Be prepared to stay in the same position for an extended period.

    Advice to Management

    Haha.

    Interesting, innovative project work in a wide variety of industries. Very good employees, overall. Growing form with strong sales pipeline.

    Cons

    Heavy emphasis on federal contracts, poor intra-firm cross selling of service offering. Lack of senior technology leader to guide technical direction of the firm. Insufficient external marketing capabilities.

    Advice to Management

    Improve employee access to corporate stock options!

    I worked at Merrick & Company full-time

    Pros

    The company itself is great when it comes to flexible work hours to accommodate medical, children, etc - life.

    Cons

    Certainly not much room for advancement. Once you're in a position, you're there for good, so you best like it.

    Advice to Management

    When HR posts on the company intranet page that bonuses are for everyone regardless of position, contribution to the bottom line, etc. - and then entire departments (apparently departments that are not project based) are left out of bonuses - that is sheer bogus. To hear that we didn't get the annual bonus because we "are just doing our jobs" does nothing for morale. Then to see other project department personnel who couldn't work a full 40 2 weeks in a row be rewarded with a generous bonus - gee - thanks! It's all who you know and who's butt you kiss at this place.

    Pros

    Very diverse, employee-owned professional services firm. Good people. Good vision.

    Cons

    Mid-sized firm (~500 employees), sometimes too small to take on the really large projects and sometimes too big to compete with the smaller firms.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the next generation and provide opportunities for career growth
