I have been working at CDM Smith full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Decent salary, privately held, improving R&D program

Cons

Pigeon Hole, management promoted based on "metrics" and not leadership skills, no bonuses for mid-level and below.

Advice to Management

Production centers are NOT the future. Moving headquarters to the suburbs will cripple the company, no one under 30 will want to work out in the sticks.

    I have been working at CDM Smith full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Many career paths. Company owned. Flexible work hours. Highly skilled technical staff.

    Cons

    There's some red tape as can be expected with a large company but, overall, it's a well managed company from top to bottom.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to embrace and implement change. In a rapidly changing world environment our ability to change and change rapidly is vital to our long term success.

    "Uninspiring job, morale is very low. Very few independent thinkers in management. The work was inconsistent at best."

    I have been working at CDM Smith full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Average salary, not great but not bad.

    Cons

    Poor morale and a very conservative workplace that isn't great for young employees. Company financials unstable at best.

    Advice to Management

    You've been doing business the same since 1980, time to get some independent thinkers in management. People hate working at CDM Smith, whether they tell management or not. Take a listen around the break rooms if you're actually interested in learning about how to fix working conditions.
