I have been working at CH2M full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Stable company with a wide variety of projects.

Cons

As an engineer, there can be a lot of down time. and then when it gets busy, it gets crazy. feast or famine. Hang on for a cyclical ride.

Advice to Management

Keep employees busier in the downtime on projects that will benefit teams once work pics up.

    I worked at CH2M full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Looks good to have a Fortune 500 firm on your resume and the impression of the firm on outside is significantly better than what is going on inside.

    Cons

    Extremely political and bureaucratic. Senior management acts in the best interests of themselves and their bonuses rather than in shareholders interests. Company lacks overall strategy and direction. Senior management is fake with employees and the employees know it.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to retire before you drive the firm into the ground or are forced to sell at half of current stock price valuation.
