CDM Smith in transition

Project Manager (Former Employee) Irvine, CA

ProsThere are many talented and dedicated expert individuals in this organization. I learned much and appreciate the time spent there.

ConsThe economic downturn of 2008 finally caught up with CDM Smith as the backlog of projects decreased. A tremendous amount of focus is on personal utilization and projected billable hours, so staff who may be meeting or close to their utilization goals but have a decreasing projected long-term workload are susceptible to facing initial reduction in hours or being laid-off.

Advice to Senior ManagementReduce costs at upper management levels especially in Cambridge and build up talent within Client Service Managers. Build up transportation practice beyond just transportation planning.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
