What are environmental consulting jobs like?
For someone graduating with a baccalaureate degree in Earth Sciences and Environmental Policy. How much do these jobs pay starting out? Are they very stressful when compared to government jobs? What is the scope for increasing one's salary after starting out? Please be sure the answer the questions. Don't just say something that relates to the topic unless it answers the question. Most of the answers on here just say stupid things like "w*f" or just post ads. This doesn't help me, does it? So why are you wasting my time by posting things like this?
