    Pros

    Location to the rapid transit lines is fantastic
    Developed long term relationships

    Cons

    If you not politically connected,then advancement is not in the cards
    You will be training new incoming staff who would be make at least 10K more than you.
    Management has no formal training, laugh, and eat lunch is their management objective

    Advice to Management

    Revamp the Human Resources Department. They have no clue except do what is they are being told without investigating the facts

    I worked at CHA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Get exposed to a lot of different types of projects. Lots of smart and experienced engineers, project managers to learn from. Good work- life balance and good culture.

    Cons

    Pay is below average. Benefits are below average. Very difficult to get promoted. Company is focused on acquisitions and not on developing employees and becoming more efficient. Company is very top heavy - i.e. shareholders get all the perks & good pay while entry & mid level employees suffer

    Advice to Management

    focus on developing your employees and doing better work

    Pros

    I never visited the home office.

    Cons

    Signed on to work with interviewer. To be trained by in house specialist. Neither happened.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire someone to work on a remote project, give them legitimate CHA leadership. Not some weasel with a gmail account.
