Poorly managed at best
Jr. Environmental Scientist (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PADecember 4, 2017
Terrible management, high turnover rate, and deplorable work life balance.

The interview is the only time a hiring manager will respect anything you have to say.

After your 1 week crash course they call a training seminar, you are thrown to the sharks and left to fully furnish your company vehicle with everything you could ever need while in the field. This is costly and Its expected that you pay for everything: tools, tolls, gas, etc.

While I was hired to work out of the office in western PA, my PM was in Philly and was impossible to communicate my needs to. Again, while I was hired to work out of western PA, an overwhelming majority my time was spent driving to central and eastern PA to work. This required weekly hotel stays and a depressing work life balance.

Do not work here. Do not accept contract work with promises of a full time position. You deserve better.
Pros
Competitive pay, high safety standards
Cons
Everything else

Unstable Poorly Managed Company
Project Geologist (Former Employee) –  Altamonte Springs, FLJuly 10, 2017
Company provided low cost services and delivered low quality products due to non-standard management practices like package pricing. Work culture is poor. Management was only concerned with client satisfaction and did not seem to care if employees were happy. The company was very unstable leading to multiple rounds of layoffs. Offices are encouraged to complete with each other for work instead of working as a team. Salaries were below average.
Pros
Safety oriented culture
Cons
Lack of job security, poor management, internal competition
