      Pros

      Good HR policies Some very good people to work with. In all a very ethical company.

      Cons

      Unfortunately bad managers can ruin the good policies and act of their own accord. Onsite work is very stressful and needs long hours without extra compensation.

      Biologist II

      4 May 2017 - Biologist 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Working alongside some of the smartest people I know. The company hires good people (on both a professional and personal level). The benefits packages are good but trending downward (from what I hear).

      Cons

      The company can be a bit cheap at times. Salaries are about average. But it's the little things that make a field biologist feel jipped - like when the company gives it's employees a reduced receipt-based per diem and provides all of the company's sub-consultants get a flat cash per diem on the same job (and the subs are paid more).

      CEO Approval

      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.

      Profit margin and bottom line is their greatest concern

      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The people I worked with were generally very good people

      Cons

      When I first started with CH2M Hill (WE were Lockwood Greene and CH2M Hill bought us) it seemed like I great place to work. Then the last of the founders retired and things went down hill. Profit margin became the most important thing and if you were not 100% billable you were out. Loyalty to employees became a joke. It was good and now I'm glad I'm out.
