    Pros

    The best projects with the best talent. We set the bar on our individual efforts. Local office connections are strong and vibrant.

    Cons

    Succeeding here at CH2M requires you to be self-driven and proactive.
    A few rough projects weighs heavy on the remainder of the staff.

    Advice to Management

    from the LYB: "There is strong statistical evidence that the staff's perception of its leaders is a major factor in motivating and holding strong people. Even though many may never have met the top people, if their perception is that the leaders are honest, intelligent humans working like mad to advance the company and those in it, the rank and file will respond in kind."
    Culture is not static: do not rely upon previous generations' efforts to maintain community within CH. INVEST in your ONE ASSET: the state and stature of your staff.

    Pros

    Good luck to all, you will realize all the problems this company has

    Cons

    Recruitment is propaganda, a bunch of empty promises and empty words during recruitment, when you're an employee all of it goes out the door and you realize the nightmare you joined, the arrogant self-important managers that put themselves on a pedestal, the incompetent arrogant leaders, the lousy / non-existent leadership, lousy projects, lousy co-workers, non-existent transparency, the list does not end

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves

    I have been working at CH2M full-time

    Pros

    Great tools and resources within the company everyone is very helpful and willing to work with you and help you keep learning.

    Cons

    In certain arrears there isn't room to move up unless you want to move far away from home and or overseas but still not to shabby I work at a airport and it is good just drive 1.5 hrs from my house one way to work and is draining.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise more promotions and incentives as well all have specific trades they all over lap due to the teamwork factor of helping one another and often don't get paid for full benefits I think management needs to realize this and compensate.

    Hi, thanks for your comment. As a current employee we would really encourage you to raise your concerns with your direct manager on this, either that or your local HR Business Partner. Thanks, Matt

    Pros

    Nice office, software that is needed is available. Friendly people at the working level (sr mgt is unapproachable). Employee owned company

    Cons

    All the "little yellow book" is just propaganda there is unfortunately nothing behind it. Can't speak for all minorities but if you are female don't except to be given the same career opportunities as your equally or even less qualified male co workers.

    Advice to Management

    This is wasted space; if management listened the company wouldn't be in the disappointing position it is in.
