Our Culture

Coastal Resources, Inc. is a team of knowledgeable professionals who truly enjoy the work we do and the people we do it with.

CRI fosters a culture of teamwork and collaboration, where all employees feel their impact on the work of the firm as well as the success and morale of their colleagues. Employees hold themselves to a high standard in meeting deadlines with the utmost quality, and we pride ourselves on scientific rigor and accuracy in our work.  CRI staff are some of the most experienced environmental professionals in the region, allowing us to provide high quality, hands-on, in-house training to our newer staff in a wide range of natural resource and engineering services. We value a growth mindset and encourage staff to pursue their professional interests in and out of work. Many of our well-established service areas were originally developed or expanded by enthusiastic staff pursuing professional expertise in an area of personal interest. These values nurture continued professional advancement without the traditional corporate ladder.  

I would like to sincerely thank the Ownership and Management of Coastal Resources for the opportunities provided to me over the past 5 years. [You] have succeeded in creating a happy and healthy workplace with a skilled and driven group of people. Thanks to the trust and autonomy you’ve placed in me, I have felt empowered and valued while working with this company.
