Large company with many possible career paths if you're young and / or without a family. Very political, like most company's now a days. Good employee ownership progream.
Top leadership changes company goals on a regular basis. Change or restructuring is the corporate culture.

Interesting work. This company can be an opportunity to learn, no matter your level of experience. The company also occasionally provides educational or instructional opportunities which can be a benefit to an employees career.
If projects slow down, layoffs begin. This can happen with little or no notice. Establishment of a long career may not be an option unless the employee is willing to leave the employ of the company and return at a later date.3CH2M Response9y

Good people working for a company that is cutting benefits to offset too much overhead.
Corporate managers trying to drive the bus with out a clear vision of the local roads.8

Talented world class engineers everywhere. This company is filled with leader in their field and it's great to be surrounded by such experienced people. They value personal development and are committed to making every employee achieve everything which is possible.
It's a large organisation and can feel overly bureaucratic at times.CH2M Response8y

There are some talented and intelligent people within the company that you can learn from.
There is obviously a major issue with leadership at the GE program. Turnover is out of control and even loyal employees that have been with the program for years are finding it difficult to justify staying. An honest Glassdoor comment outlining issues and commonly shared views sparks a mandatory program-wide meeting to claim the issues don't exist rather than dealing with them. Instead of throwing more bodies at issues (who let's face it - are just going to quit after a few months) why not invest in the program with some much needed tools such as software to help automate. The people in charge push ethical boundaries to the limit and sometimes cross them and it is widely known by the employees.14CH2M Response8y

I loved this internship! The culture at this company is so friendly and easy going. People took me under their wing and went out of their way to help me adjust to the new location and environment. I couldn't of asked for a better internship experience.
I honestly cannot think of a con. I wish it was more diverse but it's the engineering industry so that's just how it is. They did take initiatives towards increasing and welcoming diversity.

- Company understands and supports work/family balance. - Opportunity for growth in company because the company is growing and the baby boomers are retiring. - The people who work here are great! - Company has very talented/technical staff who are good mentors - Opportunities for travel if you prefer to travel - Good local market penetration
- As the company grows there is an increase in bureaucracy/processes. - As the company grows they are focusing on larger and larger projects/clients.1

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

Pretty free flowing by the employee company. You seldom are micromanaged. Very good and positive people. There are a lot of good people that work for this company and are very supportive of what we do together as a team.
Only top 10% get bonuses. System changes lately are very cumbersome. Evaluation system should be eliminated as it doesn't seem to fill any purpose. Would like to see them eliminated and allow the supervisors to control their own budgets based upon the margins of their particular projects.
