I loved working at ERM. The employees are great, most if not all of them love what they do and have a clear purpose.
ERM tries very hard to invest in their people, unfortunately do not listen to the experts in the field when it comes to how to keep staff motivated and engaged. The regions are governed by a global team that thinks they know it all.
Pros
Brilliant people, open to learning, want to make the world a better place
Cons
Need to invest more in people, people managers need to be held accountable for managing their people

ERM Southern Africa is the worst company to work for. Work is distributed based on friendships. Yet you are required to be billable. Unsatisfactory performance bonus that is biased. Position based on race.
Pros
None
Cons
So many

Some good people work there and there is opportunity for learning, but the management culture is not employee friendly. More of an intimidating style that minimizes accomplishments.

Large environmental consultancy with a fair bit of bureaucracy and advancement is totally dependent on who you know, but there are many interesting projects and talented people.

Encourages hard-working and highly billable employees. The company encourages self-starting employees with strong technical writing skills. High performing employees have the ability to advance.

Mundane tasks were plentiful for lower to mid-level staff. More varied, long-term projects were frequent. However, many employees, including myself, were met with resistance, roadblocks, and outright discrimination once one expressed interest in professional development not usually provide by the company or an extraneous life event occurred (whether planned/unplanned or positive/negative).

I was a contract wetland delineator on a team of two individuals. Our task was to delineate wetland and stream channels through the SW portion of West Virginia related to the proposed corridor of large electrical transmission lines. I feel like I was well compensated but my boss was younger and I feel, threatened by my knowledge base as evidenced by the lies I caught him telling other individuals. As with many large corporations, there is a 'pack of wolfs' mentality and everyone is clawing to stay on top. If you are mature, confident, and truly know your environmental science, ERM is a great company that is at the forefront of many infrastructure, maintenance, energy, and environmental industries.

It is easy to get hired, and you will be exposed to a wide variety of tasks; but there is a high turn-over rate and no room for growth. Not a bad place to work for a few months to a year.

I did drafting for this company. Diverse projects using many skills such as goos judgement, mathematical calculations and new software. The only negative part of ERM was that everybody was white. Very few minorities.

Was able to telecommute! I was able to do more work in the day and facetimed when necessary in order to "put a face on the name". That was very helpful.

Plenty of work...too much. Clients are large and projects are interesting and engaging. You'll gain a lot of experience here. However, the company sets increasingly unrealistic goals which are only attainable if you wish to have no life outside of work. Even if you attain your goals, you aren't likely to be recognized or rewarded...it is expected of you.

There are many talented people working here, and I can say that I have nothing bad to say about anyone I've worked with closely. However, it increasingly feels like a consulting sweatshop.

High pace, frequent travel, and demanding, worry constantly regarding billable work. Management has an unrealistic expectation regarding billable work. Personnel at my level have no control of how much billable work the company brings.
Pros
Work independence
Cons
High travel demands, constant unrealisic pressure from management to be fully billable

Work based off of billability. Consulting is a tough field because of that and if you don't have a lengthy work history it's hard to find constant work. Compared to my peers, I was given the grunt work that nobody wanted and the impending doom of being fired due to not having 100% billable time. Very stressful but I think that's how all consulting firms are.
Pros
Felxible, work from home, cool experiences, etc.
Cons
Stressful work, cutthroat industry, etc.
