    I have been working at Environmental Resources Management full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The most amazing variety of work, both in UK and internationally. Never a dull moment. A bonus scheme that actually delivers some bonus. Working alongside some of the best in the industry. Working for some of the best clients who value environment and sustainability.

    Cons

    An expectation that you will travel away from home to a reasonable extent, good if you like it, but not if you don't. Tough on setting targets and judging how these have been met

    Advice to Management

    Consider the need for more than one model of the various roles in the company - so a Partner might not just be a super salesperson, they could have other attributes just as valuable

    I have been working at Environmental Resources Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People are great at ERM and I really like the fact that we put people's safety first. The company has been on a journey of change to innovate our service offerings and also the way we deliver projects in some areas. There are different career development routes and interesting/challenging projects to work on.

    Cons

    It would seem that the company can improve on training initiatives.

    I have been working at Environmental Resources Management part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lots of different areas to work in.

    Cons

    Over the last 4 years ERM has become much more global, with a lot of top down policies and less autonomy for individual regions or offices.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that not all employees are the same.

    Pros

    If you are want to build a career with a pure play, global sustainability and EHS consulting business then look no further. ERM is wholly focused on servicing its clients needs in this space and is building for the future.

    Cons

    It really is hard work, you have to put your heart and soul into it, so if you fancy a solid nine to five existence then look somewhere else.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Environmental Resources Management full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Colleagues are great. Cross consultancy working is great for networking.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible. Projects that ERM do are very cool but only very senior people seem to get to work on them. Everything is focused around London office.

    Advice to Management

    Ask people what their interests are and give them a chance to use their skills. Many graduates are put into roles that don't match their degree or interests, do that role for a while and ask to move onto other things. More often than not, this doesn't happen.

    Pros

    Friendly company with some of its original ethos surviving. Work / life balance is excellent.

    Cons

    Poor project management, inexplicable management decisions that contradict stated aims, constant reorganization and over ambitious targets.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce unattainable targets, invest in initiatives rather than paying lip service to them.
