    I have been working at CH2M full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Wonderful team of engineers and those involved with delivering project. Relaxed environment. Can be fun depending on which team you sit with. Canteen with reasonably priced food.

    Cons

    Company support functions are often an obstacle instead of supporting function - HR, office management, etc. HQ is not based in central London, although this is nice in the summer as we have a park outside the office.

    I have been working at CH2M full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, ability to occasionally work from home, mostly good projects, and mostly good coworkers. Good computer equipment and technical staff.

    Cons

    As previous review said, non-management engineers must be 98% billable or use PTO. When your PTO is gone, you don't get paid. New system gives you a supervisor in another city who has dozens of subordinates making you just another marble in the bowl. Run out of work and ask for more? Your ignored! Quarterly meetings with the CEO are filled with corporate babble and say nothing useful. Supervisors will hold staff meetings, smile at you, and tell you how important you are to the organization, then treat you like your nothing but a piece of outdated equipment.

    I worked at CH2M full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Telecommuting, flexibility in working locations, some great people.

    Cons

    If you don't have top coverage, your time on board is limited; top heavy senior management earning huge salaries and not contributing to the bottom line efficiently. Us technical people doing the work with not support. Client centricity model isn't working; having no overall admin number to charge to if you're not considered a BD person is crazy; using vacation time so as not to incur overhead costs is a widespread practice that no one open admits to but everyone does it. Not a way to manage an organization. Truly care about your people so they don't feel like they are a number on a spreadsheet and only as good as their previous project. There is no loyalty.

    I worked at CH2M

    Pros

    There are some great people still left at CH2M.

    Cons

    It is all about the bottom line. They do not take care of their people. If you are part of the old boy's club you can lie, cheat, steal and abuse people and the management of the company will do nothing. Lots of people don't get full pay checks if there isn't enough billable work. Benefits are dwindling. I worked with a manager who lied to our clients routinely. It was a very bad situation.
