    Pros

    Cons

    It may be an ESOP, but the company is run by Project management.
    CH2M Hill is supposed to be one of the most Ethical Firms in the USA, but I didn't find this to be accurate.
    Part of my position was to source services. I discovered a major flow in the pre-existing plans. Through my skills and knowledge, I found a safe, lower cost and much lower risk solution. For this I did receive verbal commendations. However, the Project Manager and the JV Partner at the Project site did not appreciate my disrupting their plans - I was accused of being somehow tied to my 'blokes'.

    A role at CH2M Hill could be OK, but you have to review the REAL power structure for your job. I was not working for the PM; I wasn't even supposed to be working for the Procurement Manager - I was just tossed to the wolves by the technical director to satisfy the PM.

    Good luck to you if you go here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your entire review and discharge practices are useless and outdated. Get someone from outside (really outside, not complicit with the status quo) to review current practices. PM's are not gods (little g). Honesty and ethics are not check-offs on a webpage.If someone is a technical expert is being railroaded by a PM, ask questions. Out of control senior staff are weaknesses to the bottom line, and to the Treasury.
