Featured Review

Current Employee - Process Engineer

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

Pros

Familiar office, good team and leaders.

Cons

Uncertainty due to Jacobs acquisition and lack of projects

Former Employee - Environmental Scientist

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

Pros

Good structure and training, plenty of opportunities for CPD

Cons

Bureaucracy and inefficiencies abound in the international offices and there is little recognition of different work practices outside of the US

Advice to Management

It's probably not worth making new hires in Saudi Arabia sit through driving on icy roads training...
