Interesting

Auditor (Current Employee)
Englewood, CO

I have been working at CH2M HILL full-time for more than a year

ProsMostly flexible working schedule, mostly friendly work environment, stability. Being involved with projects is very interesting work.

ConsDifficult to move up/out into different departments or business groups. New CEO brings a lot of changes, the impact (positive or negative) is yet to be seen. My particular department is very small and the company environment can be political (even petty) at times. If you're younger, be prepared for a lot of industry knowledge along with a lot of old school/dated practices/management styles.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Lost

Construction Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at CH2M HILL full-time for more than 8 years

Summer Internship

Structural Engineering Intern (Current Employee)
Portland, OR

I have been working at CH2M HILL as an intern for less than a year

ProsVery welcoming team. Structured internship program with weekly seminars. I was given ownership of my own projects at the end of my internship. Opportunity to work in other areas of the company or the USA.

ConsI rarely had enough work to keep me busy. Was bored at my desk a lot. Not much of a teamwork atmosphere. Felt very competitive and demanding between coworkers. The company frequently reorganizes which makes job retention stressful.
