      An Executive blinded by themselves

      Pros

      There are many, just not feeling them right now. This latest restructure has been a woefully executed process. Change happens, it's often not fun but necessary. How you implement change is a leadership litmus test. A test this CEO and executive have failed.

      Cons

      No bottom line growth in years under the leadership of an exec and BG exec management who've contentedly protected their own interests while failing to support, understand or capitalize on growth outside of their pet focus areas. Leading to more restructuring...opportunity to make impactful change....but no.... different structure, same people, new titles, appointing the same buddies to roles around them. If these people failed to perform, lead and grow the business in their previous roles, why are they still tasked with this responsibility?

      Pros

      The Pros are not very special than others.

      Cons

      Poor management as so many layers of layers of business, local , regional and global management. Need to get all layers approval to bid works and as a results too late. Ch2 avoiding to do design work in engineering and it will lead to dead end of the business.

      One Star Rating Based on ANZ Business

      Pros

      It is unfortunate that CH2M HILL has not acted quickly to remove the business ethics and practices of former Halcrow Group Directors and Senior Executives with the ANZ business as the impression is that overall CH2M HILL internationally has a good employee culture.

      Cons

      The business is top heavy in Director and Executive levels who deliver little. Within ANZ it has a large issue with former Halcrow Group Directors and key Senior Management team who have no track record in delivering opportunities. Within ANZ there is complete mismanagement which is leading to a decline in business opportunities and CH2M HILL do not appear to be taking a decision to remove key former Halcrow Group senior management who are underperforming.

      Pros

      Good People with a wealth of technical experience in the field they work in. A large global reach to leverage expertise from.

      Cons

      Constant restructures. Lack of vision and direction. Difficult to get support from global resources due to the silo mentality across the company and geographies. Very risk averse organisation. Still US centric.

      Pros

      Excellent technical experience in the right team. Good leadership overall in most areas.
