Here is what some SES Family members have to say about CHOOSING Southern Earth Sciences AS A CAREER HOME.
Southern Earth Sciences has been much more than my employer for the past 30 years because this company is loaded with outstanding quality people and a management team that really cares about their employees. This professional family atmosphere promotes security and loyalty from all of us who work at SES. My family and I are truly blessed to be a small part of this organization.
SES has provided me the flexibility I need to maintain a good work/life balance. I am able to schedule time with out of town family and friends as well as flexibility in my work schedule when my husband was in the hospital for 3 weeks. I like the family atmosphere in our branch office. Corporate made a lot of effort to support us after the hurricane and getting us things that we needed. I have enjoyed being part of the Southern Earth TEAM. Helping other offices gives me satisfaction that I am working as a partner. Also knowing that I have additional resources to keep my projects on schedule is good at maintaining client relations.
