Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – 24 January 2017
ENVIRON is an extremely quiet office. There is little phone work; visitors are generally scheduled; and there is very little activity in the office. Most employees put on their headsets and get down to doing the research and/or writing their job requires. Most communication is via email or the company's intranet site. In some ways, ENVIRON is today's office setting--employees who telecommute or stop in to work at an available open workstation. To learn about this was extremely interesting and perhaps what I learned most.
Environ is a great company with a lot of opportunities. The structure is very linear, and so there is a lot of involvement between entry level employees and principals. It was really easy to get involved with projects and develop professional relationships with people. I learn every day I work about the technical, political, and practical aspects of the environmental consulting field
