    I have been working at CH2M HILL full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of passionate and extremely experienced employees who really care about the company. Seen as a leader in a number of different markets.

    Cons

    Lots of politics, and more politics. People leaders aren't well trained to be people leaders, are usually promoted due to technical expertise but not ability to manage. Pay and benefits are not very competitive for the most part. Organization is too slow to change, lots of mixed messages in communication from upper management and actions being taken.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you say you're being transparent - actually be transparent. We know you're just dodging questions and telling half-truths. Get younger employees more engaged. We've seen the same reasons for attrition over the past five years and yet little has been done to address this. The trends are still increasing.

    I have been working at CH2M HILL

    Pros

    The unique nature of the business offers a lot of interesting challenges for managing IT Infrastructure in the over two hundred offices around the globe. Management has a good attitude and staff are good people. Variety of clients with different requirements. Overall positive place to work. Opportunities to telework and a large number of locations to work from.

    Cons

    The IT culture is to buy "magic bullet" products on promises that it will solve CH2M Hill's unique challenges; which they never do. You probably aren't going to work with the latest and greatest IT technologies at CH2M, pretty much vanilla Windows Servers and telecom equipment.

    Pros

    Typical environmental consulting company. Same projects, different clients. Large clients only.

    Cons

    Not much work diversity because management focuses on a few big ticket clients at the expense of smaller work. Reorgs constantly.

    I have been working at CH2M HILL

    Pros

    I am fortunate to have my job and was not included in recent layoffs.

    Cons

    Company cutting jobs and overhead, yet are spending money on 'rebranding' and cute internal facebook look-alike. There seems to be a huge disconnect somewhere along the line. Employees are questioning actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate management needs to take a good hard look on what messages are being sent to employees by their actions
