"Interesting work, but not much actual engineering."
Environmental Engineer:
Pros: As a consultant, I get a lot of variety. I work on several projects at a time, and my tasks/role within the projects is always changing. The work is interesting, and I feel good about doing environmental work. Environmental consulting is also a good balance between technical work (i.e. Data analysis), technical writing, and interpersonal interactions (with colleagues and clients).
Cons: As a junior staff member, I don't get to do a lot of the really exciting decision making or data analysis. I kind of get the data or report ready for senior staff, who then get to decide how we will handle the given problem. In general, environmental consulting does not offer a lot of opportunity for engineering design or "real" engineering work. I don't feel like I use most of the knowledge and skills I learned in school. Writing skills, people/management skills, and attention to detail are all much more important than technical prowess, at least at the junior level.

Environmental Engineer:
Know the median salary before accepting an offer. Always negotiate your salary.
