Pros

Great work/life balance, great work atmosphere, every office is different however.

Cons

Getting laid off was biggest con.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to place potential employees slated for lay off into other positions for which they may qualify. Even if it is in another office.

    I have been working at CH2M HILL full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Complex projects, incredibly access to senior engineers company-wide, great advancement opportunities and benefits. CH2M Hill definitely lives up to its reputation as a great company to work for. I am happier here as a staff engineer than any of my friends who work with our competitors. I have the opportunity to work on very interesting projects and the support of my supervisors in finding work that appeals to my career interests.

    Cons

    I have not found much about the company that I do not like. I have heard that salaries may be marginally lower than at some competitors, but I have no evidence to back that up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer stock options of compensation in the form of stock to younger employees. Because the company is entirely employee-owned and its aging demographics mean that many of the older staff will be divesting of their company stock in the near future, now is a perfect time to encourage younger staff to become deeply invested in CH. This will really please younger staff (e.g. myself)

    I have been working at CH2M HILL full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Started in an entry level support role, gained a ton of experience and was able to move up to better positions internally. Many people starting in that entry level spot moved on to bigger better things within the company. Bust your butt, get rewarded. Work/Life balance is good. Allow teleworking and are good with time off.

    Cons

    The IT support structure of this company is huge, and teams do not communicate well between each other. This results in a lot of damage control. They are taking steps to re-organize these groups and improve upon these things in an effort to grow exponentially over the next couple years. However, that resulted in most senior IT folks leaving the company. So there is also a talent/knowledge drain at the moment. Also, raises are annual, but minimal, no matter how hard you're working.
