Field work is fun
Field Biologist/Botanist (Current Employee) –  Pasadena, CAJuly 21, 2015
This job is really fun and the work load is just enough were you don't feel overwhelmed. Although the work is project based, so some times it gets really slow. For example I had a couple weeks where I only worked 5-8 hrs. The Management is awesome.

Real Science
Proposal Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXApril 9, 2014
The best part about SWCA is that they have the technical expertise that provides the client a high quality environmental review in accordance with all regulatory requirements followed. The team works long hard hours. The pay is lower on the scale, but the offset is in other benefits such as health insurance, investment options, and profit sharing. The name sake of the firm is very much involved in projects in most, if not all offices. SWCA is a large firm, but with a small firm feel.
Pros
practicing real science
Cons
low pay

This company only used me certain times when projects came up in the area in which I went to school. The projects were usually very short and only required start up work on my end.
