    Pros

    Consulting in general gives good exposure to the employee.

    Cons

    You can be at the mercy of the markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that employees that work on-site with clients feel like a part of the larger overall team. Sometimes they can feel like they are on an island with no relation to the larger organization.

    I have been working at CH2M Hill Industrial Design and Construction

    Pros

    It's a big company with large, wealthy client base. There is consistently work even in economic slow downs. Compensation is average.

    Cons

    Employees don't have any say when management makes decisions. For example moving an employee home office from downtown Portland to Hillsboro; 40 minute commute time increase and no additional incentive or compensation is available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should show more respect to employees by giving them choices in matters that directly affect them. Incentives should be offered to encourage employees to work at project sites when management requires such a situation.

    Former Employee - CAD Manager in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I worked at CH2M Hill Industrial Design and Construction full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This was an excellent place to work. They hired me originally on work experience and once complete, employed me full time. I quickly moved from CAD technician to CAD manager. There was a great atmosphere around the office and it was a very relaxed environment to work in.

    Cons

    The salary was low starting off. I felt I needed to leave in order to get the money I was looking for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management provided me with every opportunity to improve and impress.

    Pros

    CH2M Hill is diverse. So a wide variety of experience is available. The nature of the business that CH2M Hill is involved in provides avenues to many career paths.

    Cons

    There is a high degree of tribal knowledge that is not documented or freely given. Often you are left on your own without any direction or the ability to discern avenues to complete tasks that are assigned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be less dismissive of employees. Often times employees want to help the company or try to share ideas. These ideas are dismissed and or no follow through is given as is promised by management.
