    I worked at CH2M full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have nothing positive to say.

    Cons

    Low pay, arrogant colleagues, poor management and business practices, no chance of career progression - I literally have no positive comments about working here except that it pushed me to explore another career I enjoy much more with a different employer that thankfully is excellent. I suffered panic attacks while working here which I never experienced before or since.

    I have been working at CH2M full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Better than average pay for this industry and location, yearly review and pay review. Detailed projects and works which you might not normally see in this area, chance to work with some very intelligent people who know some niche works in the market. Ability to work from home, and also to work in offices around the world and a chance to travel for site works. Chance for professional development through training and chartership.

    Cons

    Company going through acquisition, potential for some jobs may not be secure. My location is dependent on one project and if works cease there, more work may not be available. Work life balance is a little off (at least in my team)

    Advice to Management

    Ensure work life balance is a little more set, seems to be a little bit of a culture on who is seen leaving the office first and last at the end of the day.

    I have been working at CH2M full-time

    Pros

    Better than average salary, large projects, very friendly people

    Cons

    The type of work is not as varied and complex as it could be (Scotland), work typically gets assigned to people with previous experience, low possibility for professional development (e.g. courses, training etc.)

    Advice to Management

    You have two types of employees. The ones that want a job, and the ones that want a career. The ones that want a career want varied work, challenging work, higher risk work, along with support from more experienced staff. Listen to those who want more than just a job, invest in them, or you will lose employees.
