Work, not much else
Environmental Monitoring Technician 1 (Current Employee), Township of Cranberry, PAMarch 20, 2014
Pros: fieldwork
Cons: pay, no opportunity for advancement
Its a good job, I have fun at the job. What you get paid when you start your job is pretty much what you're going to get. Don't expect good raises or promotions

Pros: nice offices
Cons: sterile, cold, selfish people
Groundwater & Environmental Services, Inc. has no identity of itself. There is no cohesiveness, top to bottom. They would like you to believe that this company is a perfect place to work , with the best minds, and utmost attention to safety. They don't really care about safety...only the numbers associated with safety. Bright minds, yes, but all for – more... themselves, with little upward potential unless you belong to a click. – less

Pretty typical corporate environmental consulting company
Environmental Scientist (Former Employee), New YorkApril 28, 2013
Pros: good benefits, culture of safety
Cons: culture of safety, company doesnt bid on work other than from oil companies
Laid off after less than 1 year of service due to lack of work... made me wonder why I was hired in the first place. Too much micro-management, too many managers. Company feeds off oil companies

Only if you really need a job...
Environmental Scientist (Former Employee), Marcellus Shale RegionApril 23, 2013
Pros: ...
Cons: numerous.
Mundane and monotonous routine. Management was not interested in training junior employees. Excessive travel for below average compensation was the norm. Mass hiring and subsequent layoffs were commonplace. There was an extremely high turnover rate amongst employees that weren't laid off. Morale was extremely low during the entirety of my tenure with – more... the company. Not a conducive environment for a burgeoning career as a scientist. – less

Good place to begin your career, but leave after some experience
Jr. Environmental Scientist (Former Employee), Neptune City, NJNovember 9, 2012
Pros: cooworkers were all very pleasant to work with, easy commute
Cons: not challenged to learn, low salary, catered too much to client needs and no loyalty to the employees, creating low morale and high turnover.
When I was with GES, there was a very low company morale, and a very high turnover rate of 37%. The salary was low, in comparison to similar positions with other firms. Most people left after one or two years. Additionally, senior management would cater excessively to client demands, and did not hesitate to make personnel changes upon their demands. – more... This created a low morale and a disconnect between local employees and senior management. – less
