Recycling of paper mill waste sludges
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  GA, AL, FLJuly 26, 2017
Great concept and well received by large paper mills. Long sales cycle and the investors became impatient when the results took too long to generate. Had conceptual agreements with (5) mills in place when management pulled the plug.
Pros
Great Product
Cons
Long sales Cycle

Don't do it.
Operator Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Honolulu, HIMay 5, 2017
Not paid enough for what you have to do. No training at all. They expect you to know everything without even training you properly. Get mad if you take breaks even though every shift is 12 or more hours.
Pros
Coworkers are all friendly.
Cons
Terrible management.

Unique company
Sr. HR Shared Service Coordinator (Former Employee) –  White Marsh, MDMarch 16, 2017
Synagro is a fast growing company. With that there is a lot of chaos. There are great workers but management had that belief that if you couldnt do the work we could get someone else that can do it, instead of asking for assistance.
Pros
pays well
Cons
no work life balance, depending on department management doesn't listen

Unstable Company with perks if you could sustain your job
Wwtp press operator (Former Employee) –  Lancaster, OHMarch 10, 2017
Constant turnarounds meant a new office every couple of months but once you became settled the atmosphere was welcoming and the job fulfilling. If you could overcome the smell it was a pleasant place to work.
Pros
easy laid back atmosphere
Cons
hours in peak season

Synagro was a great place to work.
Power Plant Operator (Former Employee) –  Waterbury, CTMarch 9, 2017
Synagro was a great place to work. Employees were knowledgeable, pleasant and organized. Synagro was a fun place to work for many years. The opportunity to be part of the Synagro staff was a great experience. I spent a lot of time employed at Synagro and have to say that my fellow colleagues were great individuals.

Good pay & good job, but you'll sacrifice any social life
Plant Operator (Former Employee) –  Miamisburg, OHJanuary 12, 2017
Overall it was a decent job and good pay. The overtime was there and the money....but they weren't very understanding. If you don't have a family or friends and don't like to relax or do things on the weekend then this is a great company. If you like to enjoy life besides working, then maybe not.
Pros
Overtime available, long hours, good company
Cons
Management is not very understanding

Difficult place to work ... not cohesive... company continues to struggle
administrator (Former Employee) –  White Marsh, MDJuly 12, 2016
A couple members of the executive management team are difficult to work with. Company is not making money; employees work hard and don't receive bonuses. Executive team gets their bonuses - must comply with what is written in their contract right? Employees that work there really give it their all and that is the discouraging piece of it - they don't feel acknowledged, hence, morale is way down.

The CEO is very critical of much and does not know how to be open minded about alot of things. He is always away from the office for himself. He needs to get out and meet with the employees in the field, work their job for a day, get dirty, listen to what they have to say. Might be a good idea for him to move on as well as the Board and have Enviva start fresh some sort of way.

Healthcare plan went up which did not sit well with employees. Employees just go day by day to make it work.
Pros
free parking, fellow employees are great to work with, location is easy to get to.
Cons
Morale is poor... the company just spins their wheels and goes no where

Great if you like being screwed
Operator (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDMay 22, 2016
Haven't had a raise in 4 years no room for advancement, glass ceiling. Management does not know anything about the plant that they manage, so nobody is listening to valid proposals, equipment goes long periods of time without maintenance fires are frequent and last but not least they take advantage of the employees

Could be better.
Bio-Solids Dryer Operator (Current Employee) –  Camden, NJJuly 14, 2015
Overall the job is great. My coworkers are a decent group of individuals, but sometimes working together as a unit can be difficult. I have learned a lot about the sludge process and how we as Synagro handle the process from start to finish. Management however is not much to desire. I think they could handle employee relations a better.
Pros
A small knit group working environment.
Cons
No wage increase in years and management
