CDM Smith

Project Engineer (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

ProsVery intelligent and articulated coworkers. Corporate structure encouraged new and exciting employee development. I enjoyed working there with the right mix of entry level engineers through experience engineers. Very efficient and effective engineering processes, after 100 years of business this company has a lot to offer and to learn from. Great engineering culture and business management.

ConsMargins are razor thin in the industry and billable hours were very important to keep high as a new engineer. Jobs are very related to the amount of work being "won".

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work! Keep up the great job in attracting talent and creating an engineering culture.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
