    I have been working at CDM Smith full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Everyone works together as a team and is like a family

    Cons

    We have a new CEO, we shall see what changes are in place for 2018. Communication is getting better; don't like admin's having to use utilization hours because all the newer/younger engineers are doing their own work.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider UT hours for different levels of staff

    Planner II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at CDM Smith (Austin, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied the Transportation Planner II position, and got contacted with a senior planner of this company. The senior planner was very nice, who encouraged me to join their company. I got HR's phone interview several days after I applied. She was nice and we had a friendly chatting. After a couple of days, I was arranged to have a phone interview with the hire manager. We also had a wonderful chatting. Then I got an on-site interview opportunity after several days. The on-site interview was arranged with one or two employers at a time. And I was interviewed with 5 employers in total, spent 4 hours or so.
