    Pros

    Was not very fast paced and usually could work on homework in downtime.

    My location was in the basement of the GE aviation facility in Evendale. Air quality was a bit worrisome.

    Current Intern - Planning Intern in Portland, OR

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at CH2M for more than a year

    Pros

    Big company provides access to a variety of projects, geographically, budget, size wise, content wise. This hasn't been my most favorite experience, however it has been my most valuable. I highly recommend anyone offered this opportunity consider accepting it. **Insurance is an option for interns, it is expensive w awful coverage, but having it as an option is a nice courtesy.

    Cons

    To access projects requires pitching your skills and being persistent at searching for work. It is a challenge to be the bottom feeder. A position like this is best suited for someone who wants to stay at the company, making the time investment of doing grunt work to create relationships where slowly more skill enhancing work begins to filter its way to you, slowly improving the balance of grunt work to professional work. Understanding this aspect of the position before going in should be really helpful. CH2M is a great company if this type of strategy and negotiation is a forte and is fun to you.

    I worked at CH2M

    Pros

    The environment was exceptional. Everyone was kind and ready to help you if you had any questions or problems. Learned more here than at school.

    Cons

    Your first year as an intern can be kind of slow since you're inexperienced. If you return for a second year the experience will be even better than the first.

    • Senior Management
    Engineering Intern in San Francisco, CA
    Recommends
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at CH2M for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, responsibility in complex and long-term projects (worked as a junior engineer), was invited to attend to attend high-level meetings with clients and felt welcomed by executive management, ability to explore career interests outside of direct assignments, strong Junior and Mid-level Professional (JuMP) networking opportunities, strong intern support program through weekly skype trainings, friendly and hard-working people--no slackers!

    Cons

    Many full-time employees work remotely--good for work life balance but bad for forming relationships since in-person interaction is inconsistent. CH2M was recently acquired by Jacobs Eng. so there is a lot of uncertainty with job security, management changes, and shifts in company culture.
