I worked at CH2M HILL

Pros

- Enjoyed working with some very talented and genuinely nice people
- Knowledge sharing
- Opportunities to grow
- Technical expertise
- Externally focused

Cons

- Benefits were relatively poor for the city location
- Too focused on making everyone a PM
- Many junior staff performing more senior roles

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on staff retention. Calgary is an expensive City and you will never make a go of it unless you up the ante. Plain and simple. There are just too many attractive alternatives in the city.

    I have been working at CH2M HILL

    Pros

    Overall good company reputation of CH2MHill based on their work on large infrastructure projects primarily for the government. Nice offices.

    Cons

    Poor execution of downsizing of offices, total lack of communication with employees, particularly department managers who had to dismiss these employees (weren't consulted with on whom should be included in layoffs, who should be kept around to complete projects, etc.).
    Lack of company executive familiarity with profit margins associated with various industries, only seem to be familiar with government project margins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before purchasing other businesses to bring under the CH2M umbrella, do much more background research regarding anticipated profit margins, business cycles.
