    I have been working at Trinity Consultants full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work, lots of responsibility given early on. Minimal egos, very supportive and collaborative. Large variety of projects. Good career growth guidance and training. Smart people, but still very team oriented.

    Cons

    Consulting is tough. Long hours once in a while.

    Advice to Management

    Proactively show appreciation to high achievers. Career planning program is very good and well-developed. Managers should spend more quality time with employees on this.

    I worked at Trinity Consultants full-time

    Pros

    Good, nice, people to work with
    Highly respected in the air quality consulting world
    Good work environment
    High respect for office managers & management
    Good pay for management - if you stick around
    Very low turnover <2%

    Cons

    Performance is valued above everything
    They have many office across the U.S. so your experience is very dependent of the office you work at.
    Not much social interaction with coworkers - these are all top notch students who are used to working hard and getting things done.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to encourage friendship & bonding in the office setting.
    Performance will always be important here, just be careful not to make an idol out of performance.

  4. "Boring Job"

    I have been working at Trinity Consultants full-time

    Pros

    Can work from home or can assist other offices without physically being there. Can get a lot of hands on experience from first day at work.

    Cons

    A lot of pressure to maintain 90+% billability from supervisors. Constant monitoring on how hours are spent. Work life is largely dependent on which office you are located in. PTO is not that great with 10 days a year. Most importantly, the job can get really monotonous.

    I have been working at Trinity Consultants full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Learn a lot of leadership and project management skills very quickly.
    Flexible schedule.
    Can remote work.
    Lots of resources provided.

    Cons

    High billing rates to clients mean you are working as fast as you can at all times.
    Lots of hours

    Advice to Management

    Lower the utilization goals for lower consultants so you don't burn them out or have them recent you. Take more time to give detailed instruction. Stop raising your already high billing rates.

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Large company. Lots of career options and opportunities. Salary is above average for the industry. Health benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Holiday and PTO are mediocre. Only get 8 paid holidays per year (New Year's day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving day and day after, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day). Previous firms that I worked for had 11 paid holidays (in addition to the 8 mentioned, we got New Year's Eve and 2 floating holidays to use anytime like Martin Luther King or Good Friday). PTO policy is the worst of any company I've worked for. PTO is for both vacation and sick days.

    I have been working at Trinity Consultants full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Entry-level employees do important work, are involved in products submitted to clients/regulatory agencies, and are valued for their input. More tenured employees do not keep their experience secret, and share their knowledge when asked. Stable industry, air regulations are over-complicated and impossible to navigate without help (intro Trinity Consultants!).

    Cons

    Not a lot of formal training (all on-the-job), which can make accomplishing work succesfully difficult. Performance is, on a company level (office managers are more understanding), is largely based on achieving 90% billable work, which (1) may not be up to you (no work that you are capable of, as an entry-level, (2) you can't ethically bill (entry-level, you require a lot of training, spend a lot of time spinning wheels someimtes), (3) by the time you use the restroom on occasion and need time to respond to client/supervisor/peer emails, 90% is not feasible without 45-55 hours of actually work-time. If you are a hands-on kind of person, you will not enjoy air consulting, as you rarely (if ever) get to see the fruits of your labor. It's all kind of ethereal.

    Advice to Management

    Air consulting is just such an ambiguous field that it's hard to have formal training (much of permitting is based on un-written experience and un-written precedent dependent on State, EPA Region, and Industry). However, more formal (non-webinar: actual sit-down learn for 2 days or something) training would be encouraging to entry-levels. And just to meet peers would be nice (entry-levels).
