Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Paducah, KY – 28 March 2017
One to three emplyee business. Management is the owner or his wife. She has little authority. Owner is on the road A LOT. Work load is steady, but short turnaround for the steel rolling industry. Management expects much and provides little. It takes much to want to stay. Most do not make it more than a year. Machines are wore out. Not a good place to work at for any reason. Your best day is when you walk out the door. Bad reputation with local area trade school.
Depending on where you work, it can be good or bad
Consultant (Former Employee) – North America – 17 January 2017
Working for ERM is a mixed bag, and your experience will largely depend on who you have as a manager, and business unit you sit in. There are opportunities to be part of some pretty interesting projects. There are projects all over the world, ranging in scope from environmental to social to safety consulting.
The company does have a great attitude about flexibility in their hours and working from home. If you get what you need to get done, done, and the clients are happy, that's the primary concern. There is no mandate that says you have to be in the office from 9-5, or that you can't work from home if traffic is particularly bad, your kid is sick, or you have to wait for the cable guy.
Advancement and raises are another matter, and the path to victory is pretty narrow. Depending on your field, it is non-existent.
Management is out of touch and tone deaf (but where isn't it?), but the biggest concern is that it's weak and they don't have much control over the partners, who seem to do what they want for the most part.
Morale is pretty low coming off a tough year.
Job stability is not guaranteed, and everything is driven by billable hours.
Interesting projects, possibility of travel for work, flexible work arrangements
Management is weak, not much camaraderie, low advancement opportunity, uneven support of furthering education outside of ERM
ERM has had a lot of good employees over the years but had is the key word. This is not a stable company to build a career with. The current leadership is not high quality, some of the worst managers I have seen.
high turnover, Partner-in-charge/PM model doen't work, lies about partnership opportunities, unethical handling of environmental issues
Engenheira de minas, sem cargo especificado (Former Employee) – Belo Horizonte, MG – 3 July 2016
Trabalho tranquilo de ser realizado,sem muito stress, com paradas para café da manhã, almoço, café da tarde. O principal aprendizado, durante minha permanência na empresa, foi o gerenciamento do pessoal técnico, tanto no campo quanto no escritório. Quanto aos trabalhos técnicos, não houve muito aprendizado, uma vez que já tinha vários anos de experiência na execução dos mesmos. Direção e gerência da empresa deixaram a desejar, a meu ver, a empresa poderia ter uma gestão bem melhor. Com exceção dos proprietários, diretor e gerente da empresa, os colegas eram todos muito jovens e sem muita disposição para o trabalho e para a aprendizagem. O difícil no trabalho foi gerenciamento do pessoal técnico, composto de funcionários muito jovens, sem foco, distraídos e com muito pouca disposição. O mais agradável era a liberdade para tomada de decisões.
Scientist (Current Employee) – Annapolis, MD – 3 May 2016
This was a nice company to work for, but the management has made decisions that have been driving good employees away in droves. After a few rounds of knee jerk layoffs of some of their best employees, other employees are getting out at an astonishing rate.
Your work life will be about nothing other than maintaining the highest billability possible so the company can meet unrealistic profit expectations. While trying to find your own work to maintain that elusive billable goal, your rates will be inflated so project managers will cut your hours while still expecting you to do the same amount of work...thus lowering your billability through no fault of your own. Sick days will also lower your billability, as will the umpteen pointless meetings they will make you attend every week.
Unless you are a field person, don't expect to meet your billability goals with our working at least 50 hours a week. Also expect to work late into the night and over the weekends on projects for senior people who waited until the last minute to meet a deadline. Your personal life means nothing to them...also, they ate up all the budget for themselves so you can't bill all your time to the project.
Some great coworkers, interesting projects

Technical Writer (Former Employee) – Hong Kong – 9 January 2016
ERM offered an attractive remuneration and welfare package, with a 5-day work and 20 days of annual leave, which is quite exceptional in Hong Kong. The risk team has a vibrant culture with friendly co-workers holding parties and activities from time to time. As the technical writer of the team, I was responsible for drafting proposals, coordinating the input from local and oversea consultants. In addition, liaising with the client to keep track of the submitted opportunity was a major part of my duties so that requests from the client will be addressed in a swift manner. Sometimes handling multiple proposals within a tight deadline is the most challenging part as the associated coordination effort is enormous. Fortunately, a group of helpful colleagues have a propensity to monitor my workload so that a balanced work environment is maintained.
Administrator/Analyst Receptionist II (Current Employee) – Melville, NY – 10 September 2015
Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape and politics, but this is expected The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my colleagues and learning from them.
SAP EHS-EHSM Expert (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – 4 June 2015
I used to work for this company. This is the WORST company to work for, the management is two face, they tell you all the great things FALSELY FABRICATED which will in a few months turn out to be a bunch of lies. There is NO JOB SECURITY, they will hire you for a specific project or role and once the project ends they will make up an excuse and fire you on the spot. The management has too many politics and issues among themselves. I WILL NEVER WORK FOR ERM AGAIN AND WILL NEVER RECOMMEND ANYONE TO WORK HERE.
Any Pros will be temporary and false advertisement
Healthcare could take 2 months to start, Fire you on short notice when project ends
Un ambiente de trabajo agradable, gente profesional.
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) – Ciudad de México, DIF – 29 May 2015
Llegar al lugar que previamente reservaste en el sistema de desk booking, saludar a tus compañeros, conectar la lap, checar los mails, revisar si hay algo urgente o pendiente, terminar el trabajo del día. Si estas en campo es muy diferente, tienes que llevar el EPP requerido, levantarte mas temprano, informarte antes que hacen en la planta, que tipo de visita es, etc. Si vas a tomar avión (ida y vuelta) coordinar la llegada con el cliente, revisar las condiciones meteorologicas, etc. Si vas a quedarte mas de un día, preparar la maleta, revisar la logística del viaje, en la noche en el hotel, revisar mails y cosas urgentes que pudieran surgir en la ausencia.
ERM is a good company to work for if you're a consultant.
Receprtionis/Admin Support (Current Employee) – Cape Town, WC – 24 April 2015
A regular day at work is very interactive and Involved.
I've learned alot and have been happy to work for ERM for the last year and four months.
The hardest part for me in my day or experience at ERM and the main reason I'd like to leave is. I dont like the being confound to my desk and cannot move to even go to the rest room without requesting permission to do so.
The most enjoyable part of my job is talking to the people around me.
Consultant (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – 12 April 2015
Leadership is nonexistent. Some departments desperately need a management change. Partners seem to promote people who are incompetent and arrogant. Most PM's are not very knowledgable in the their field of 'expertise' and play the blame game when review time comes around. Limited chance for advancement with current management. The only performance metrics that ERM seem to care about is sales targets, face to face meetings, and billing percentage. Those are hard to achieve if you are not writing proposals and denied direct contact with clients. Forget about proper training and mentoring. These important development activities are essentially nonexistent and when you can help, it's unappreciated.
Nice location. Most people are friendly.
Poor leaders, demoralizing, unfair, open office environment.
Senior Consultant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – 25 March 2015
The company is a very good one to work for. The Information Solutions groups is basically a separate company from the Environmental Consulting side, which is unfortunate. There seems to be a lot less internal competition and insecurity in the Environmental side. A lot of opportunity if you have SAP experience.
