    I worked at CH2M full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best and brightest co-workers that I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Deep technical expertise in the company. Flexible work policies (teleworking, work hours not set in stone, etc.)

    Cons

    Consistently shifting management that does not seem very well connected to the day-to-day delivery of projects and the needs of particular offices. The performance reviews are a waste of time.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to steer the ship from a distance and utilize local managers who are connected to the projects in particular offices.

    I worked at CH2M full-time

    Pros

    Excellent group of tradesmen! These men and women are hard excellent workers but management doesn't notice it.

    Cons

    Some clients are over demanding even with the short staff that they (CH2M/Jacobs) had. They don't care and will bad mouth the techs daily. PM did not have a clue on client satisfaction nor did he understand everyone's role and what they did on a daily bases. The PM is out for himself and himself only. Micromanaging at its finest (from his office).

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your office and see the clients EVERYDAY! You have to build that rapport. Go see your different areas of operations, like the grounds crew; do you even know what they do? Let the leads do their job! Stop micromanaging.
