Not the great place it was when Ralph Peterson was there and who hired Lee Mc? What a joke!

Pros

Flexible place overall depending on who your boss is. Teleworking allowed depending on who your boss is. Can be an awesome place to work...depending on who your boss is.

Cons

Having an overpaid supervisor that doesn't know their job or yours even after 3 years of being employed with the company. Having a manager that allows the nonsense to go on for so long when the company has let so many qualified people go who were paid less money. It's frustrating when management doesn't listen to the staff when the staff are the ones doing the work and understand the job. Ralph Peterson cared about everyone; Lee Mc. is out for himself and allows the overpaying of people who really need to be demoted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a grip on what's really important. From the top to the bottom of the pay scale, everyone should be treated with respect and receive recognition for things they do for the company. Take care of your employees and they will take care of you.

    Pros

    Some great people to work with and some dead wood to work around, all in all an interesting place to work.

    Cons

    Management always harps about how employee's are the most important resource the company has, yet pay is lower than most other companies in the same business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying people better and you might keep some of the more valuable employee's instead of loosing them to competitors.

    No opinion of CEO

    Work environment is good, but pay is lower than other shops and upward mobility is restricted by the good old boy system

    I worked at CH2M HILL

    Pros

    The Job is enjoyable if you are satisfied with being a mechanic. They have very good equipment and tools for use. The shop environment is like any other, but with more comrodery, they go the extra mile to try and keep you satisfied with where you are.

    Cons

    The pay is lower than similiar jobs on the slope with other companies, they seem to bring in management from outside so getting promoted into a managment position is limited, and I feel very rare. The good ol'boy system is in place on the slope and CH has not been able to erraticate it in their management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review management positions for the opportunity of finding a good manager in the common ranks of the work place. May want to restrict current management from, 'dangling a carrot', to keep employees around a little longer with no actual intention of promotion.
