    Pros

    Smart people, challenging and interesting projects

    CH2M leadership was focused on large/risky projects and selling firm to sell their shares. I left as this was happening. Now merger with Jacobs is complete.

    I worked at CH2M full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Large company to gain contacts.

    Cons

    Too big and can end up just being an employee number. When times are good they are good but the minute things aren't good they start dumping employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at CH2M full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some of the best and brightest co-workers that I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Deep technical expertise in the company. Flexible work policies (teleworking, work hours not set in stone, etc.)

    Cons

    Consistently shifting management that does not seem very well connected to the day-to-day delivery of projects and the needs of particular offices. The performance reviews are a waste of time.

    Current Employee - Project Manager in London, England

    I have been working at CH2M full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Generous benefits, great staff network. The potential to land on some very interesting projects with some great clients or great consortiums. Very good work-life balance - short days. HR are great at considering your home needs when placing you on projects.

    Cons

    Career paths for progression are not advertised. Information about the 'next step' is only obtainable through hearsay and internal conversations. This can be tricky in such a large and complex company where you might be based permanently away from the office and therefor, not able to network you into the next role. As a solution, CH2M put 'Managers of Talent' in place and these people are gifted with the power to place you on projects, influence pay and permit training. These people can make or break your career, but all too often, they tend to be too busy/uncaring to reply, not people-interested and tainted by biases (one was sexist - but only one!). Due to the often intangible nature of the work, a meritocratic environment has been hard to create and most senior people are exist only as a function of the time they have spent in the company.
