    I worked at VHB full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    it has a lot of projects to work

    Cons

    people work all the time even at lunch and learn hours. It gave me so much stress for not working as many hours as others.

    I worked at VHB full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Overall company culture was good, slightly above-average compensation and benefits. Very flexible with schedules and working from home. Good office environment. IT and equipment were great.

    Cons

    I will preface by saying that this review is limited to the New Hampshire office. Management is variable. The few good PMs and senior managers are outnumbered by those who struggle to perform. Morale is regularly at extreme lows due to unrealistic workloads caused by employee turnover. While regularly stating that they are a generational company, few junior staff have long-term plans at VHB due to poor current management. If you are in the environmental field, avoid this office and look elsewhere; better opportunities exist.
