SWCA was a lousy company to work for. Project Directors regularly threw underlings under the proverbial bus in order to cover their own ineptitudes. Good archaeologists & biologists were regularly replaced & overshadowed by less skilled, but more ambitious & cutthroat coworkers. SWCA also regularly overcharged clients, purposely did shoddy fieldwork, & arbitrarily changed pay. Out of the several Cultural Resource Management firms I have worked for, as well as other places of employment in other fields, SWCA was easily the most unethical, devious, & all around negative work environment.
Ambitious coworkers, unethical practices
