Environmental Consultant Reviews

What is it like working as an Environmental Consultant?

Environmental Consultant in Grahamstown:
"Working as an environmental consultant."
Pros: I enjoy working on many different project types in various fields: renewable energy, mining, agriculture, etc. You're often encountering new plans and schemes in the early development stages. There are great opportunities to travel if your company works in other countries.
Cons: I do not like the "cut and paste" that is common when writing reports. Often the same information is regurgitated from one report to the next, and is not innovative at all, and you can get bored easily. I do not like the ethical dilemma consultants and companies are faced with: we are hired and paid mostly by the mining companies, developers, etc that just want us to rubber-stamp their development. Therefore, we are often expected by our client and employers to ignore our personal reservations about the environmental damage a development might cause and just write our report and move on. Also, developing a reputation as a company that is hostile to development will ensure that no one hires you. So it's impossible, the way the system is set up currently, to not be biased in your client (the developer's favour).
