    I worked at CH2M full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Was a rotational job. 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off. Worked with a amazing crew. Definitely one of the best crews if ever worked with in the oilfield.

    Cons

    Top heavy in management and at times major favoritism went around where certain people got promoted that did not deserve it. Plus management would take any chance to stab a employee in the back to get them fired over rediculous nonsense.

    I worked at CH2M full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Time off, provides work clothes, discounts

    Cons

    Management, managements, management! I started out with veco, then ch2mhill bought them out. Ever since ch2 bought out veco it slowly got worse and worse. I worked a total of 10 years with the company. I worked rotational work in a remote part of Alaska. I have never been a schmoozer I have always let my work speak for me. It seems like it doesn't matter how horrible of an employee you are, as long as you are buddy buddy with the mucky mucks you are safe. Then there were these procedure roll outs by someone who has never worked in the environment or knows nothing about the actual work. So much money was wasted on stuff like new procedures. So when employees do an amazing job and their reviews are great but there are no raises because there is no money in the budget because someone comes up with what they think is a good idea yet have no experience, maybe you should rethink that. If it ain't broke don't fix it!

    Advice to Management

    Before deciding who to lay off, you should look at performance before deciding. I understand the oil industry isn't your forte but don't try to run a construction company like a corporate office.
