    I have been working at CH2M HILL

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules are great. As long as you get 80 hours in a two week period, you can work whatever hours in any day you want. This is pretty much the only good thing I can point out right now.

    Cons

    The downward trajectory of this company really took off when Lee McIntire took over. It appears he is doing whatever he can to grow the company and increase stock prices (at the detriment of his employee's well being), so he can enjoy his ridiculous stock-options.

    This review is for the Environmental Business group only.

    Nearly impossible to get recognized.
    Quotas on job performace. Only 20% of staff can exceed expectations, lumping 80% of employees into "average" reviews.
    Average 2.5% raises last 4 years, while the new CEO has raised his compenstation by nearly 1,000% in the same time frame (from $700,000 to over $12 million).
    Company's 5 year plan is to grow for the sake of growing. Had 23,000 employees in 2010, goal is to have 40,000 by 2015. No real reason for this has been explained.
    Stock prices are increasing steadily, but it's not necessarily a good thing. Executives are limiting the amount of compensation to employees in order to artificially drive up share prices.
    We keep hearing we have had another record year, yet we need to cut back on overhead costs, be 100% billable, and get miniscule raises that do not even keep up with inflation.
    Salaries are at least 15% lower than competitor's salaries.
    Morale is ridiculously low. If upper management does not see this in the very near future, CH2M HILL will experience a massive brain drain to its competitiors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect.
    No quotas on job performance. If employees perform well, recognize their efforts.
    Pay your employees more. Enough with 2% raises, when you tour the offices bragging about shattering last year's planned revenue and profits.
    Be honest with employees.
    Explain your strategies better.
