I have been working at CDM Smith full-time

Pros

Nice people, growth opportunities in different locations in US and globally, new executive leadership team who will hopefully make some big changes for the positive, interesting work that makes a difference in the world, diversity in workforce.

Cons

Conservative culture that sometimes needs to get out of it's own way and understand what is happening in today's global market and labor force. US dominated. Some IT systems a bit behind.

Advice to Management

Look to future and think outside what's always been done. It's time to think like a leading company as opposed to thinking we are 2nd to others.

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

    Pros

    Very stable life and career style before CDM merges with Wilbur Smith to form Wilbur Smith.

    Cons

    The merge/acquisition destroyed everything. They closed down a field office which included a lot of PEs and EITs. It actually happened for the benefit of me since my new job had a 30% salary increase. Still, having worked for CDM for four (4) years, it really hurts to see the company going down the hill.

    Advice to Management

    Review system is unfair to the new kids.
