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

    Pros

    It was a good company and still is. It's just now owned by a really big company that puts numbers first.

    Cons

    Jacobs now owns CH2M and is hacking away at jobs for profit. A lot of jobs are being transitioned to Poland and India. If you are a subcontractor wanting to get paid, you have a hard time getting an answer to when you will get paid. Subs need to read their contracts and know their contract terms. Don't settle for Paid when Paid terms.
