I have been working at CDM Smith

Pros

The nature of the work, the fact that the position was not for everyone. The company policies were fair and promoted someone to grow in their role.

Cons

The senior management is seemingly disconnected to the rest of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the clients for the fate of the company rests with their opinions.

No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at CDM Smith full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    My immediate colleagues were great. Had flexiblitliy in my schedule. The location is convenient to public transportion and parking available.

    Cons

    "That's the way it's always been done" was a standard answer whenever the status quo was questioned. Those who "went along to get along" were rewarded. Those who bucked the trend were treated poorly. There wasn't a clear career path for HR and lack of development opportunities. Leadership in the group was sorely lacking. Never felt like anyone had my back. Lack of bonuses made compensation package uncompetitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stuff sweating the small stuff and let the experts you hired worry about that stuff. Focus instead on the big picture. Revamp the compensation package to reward a larger group of employees.

    I worked at CDM Smith full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Projects are interesting and diverse. The scientists and engineers that I worked with were professional and polite. Clear goals and milestones.

    Cons

    Sometimes the upper management liked to change things just so people knew they were there.
