Ch2m
CH2M was s good place to work. I learned about corporate graphic design, the company gave me my start and I loved working there. Jacobs bought it out and I was laid off so I don’t care for Jacobs. But CH2M I loved working for.

There is no stability
Jacob's will lay you off quick. This is not for long term career advancement; once the work is gone, you're gone!!!! Jacob's will not keep you for future projects.

Repetitive
Nothing special, management driven and instability, job insecurity.

I had a sweet tongued boss who was too busy saving his chair rather than be a leader for the team.

Good to work for
American company with some odd ideas to the British, but you get used to it. Good to work for with a good team and interesting work.
Loyalty seems to only go one way though (might be the bitter me saying that as just been put at risk of redundancy in the middle of a pandemic (this is after CEO video messaged a while ago that the company was financially healthy to ride out the situation!)
Pros
Free fruit, good working conditions
Cons
None

Ganz ok.
Arbeit hat mir viel Spass gemacht, aber die Konditionen (15 min Pause bei teilweise 8 Std Arbeit) ging gar nicht und viel zu wenig Kartons zum verpacken.

Difficult to Find Your Footing
Tough place for a first job; very little training; very little attention and care given to younger employees; multiple hours per day doing nothing despite asking for work

If you are part of the Good Ol' boys you'll make it
In general you are paid well but if you are not billable then you get laid off andusually with-out notice. They will tell you they have years of work and then one day shut it all down with out warning.
They recruit you you then lay you off.

Good company
A good company to work for. Most managers were effective and supportive, some were distant and not so supportive. The office had groups of old school types, working direct for clients was more pleasant.

Rat Race
If yoy are looking for a job just for the time being well this is it. You cannot trust anyone and I mean anyone at this job. There is no loyalty towards the workers and management. I've seen guys with over 25 years of service with the company, get fired without any respect given.
