Unbelievable experience at CH2M HILL


Uppers

The company structure and beliefs, views, respect on work. The people that work there.


Downers

Didn't get the opportunity to work on a large project


Advice to Potential Interns

CH2M HILL is a great company to work for and you can't go wrong. The people there are great and so it is the work. Definitely recommend an internship ir job there.


Advice to Management

Maybe try and train interns on a specific aspect of work such as a days training course so people leave having that under thier belt as well as the intern experience.

Thoroughly enjoyable as well as thoroughly enlightening


Uppers

The people and the experiences made the internship extremely entertaining.


Downers

There appeared to be some office politics as well as a disconnect between upper management


Advice to Potential Interns

CH is better than any other internship that I have had or have ever heard of anyone having


Advice to Management

There needs to be less political issues throughout the office as well as better cooperation between each management level. Everyone needs to be on the same page.

Introduction to Engineering Workforce, Integration into Office, and Much Hard Work


Uppers

being accepted into the office, helped by coworkers, given new and challenging work whenever possible, supervisors try hard to keep me busy


Downers

the constant urging to participate in the 'intern program': networking, conference lectures; the benefits: I have to call to make sure they don't take away from my paycheck for a 401k


Advice to Potential Interns

work hard, be friendly, be willing and ready to learn and to ask for help


Would You Recommend

Yes

My Summer Internship as an Instrumentation and Control Intern was really a wonderful opportunity for me to learn and explore new things.


Uppers

Hand-son work experience.


Downers

Not Applicable.


Advice to Potential Interns

From my point of view, the Summer Internship opportunity was really helpful for me to get the hands-on experience in the field I am pursuing Master's degree. I was able to apply the knowledge gained in University and gain skills.

An great experience that really opened my eyes and has helped me realize where I should focus in my remaining years at school


Uppers

The people I worked with, the ability to ask questions at anytime and always getting and answer. Being challenged. Learned new skills and new ways to view problems. Being able to be on site to see actual construction. Seeing what CH2M Hill values and their values of keeping employees involved. The intern presentation and university presentation


Downers

There were some days when there wasn't much to do and i wasn't able to assists so I look on the web site and became more familiar with the company. It gave me a chance to see what other aspects of the company I may have interest in. Tried the make the best out of a slow day


Advice to Potential Interns

Be ready to learn, document, ask a lot of question and never be worried about sounding "stupid". We all start from the bottom and as we ask and learn, we grow and skills and knowledge become better. Always inquire about why things happen. Pick the brains of co-workers, show initiative and interest.


Advice to Management

I had no issues with management at all. I would say that I was not able to call in to all the intern presentations and some were taped. I feel that if all were recorded, on those slow days, we can listen in and catch up. I thought with my experience that i could have been paid a little more but as this point, money isn't the issue, learning and new branch on eng. was my goal which i achieved. I like the flexibility in hours, especially since i had summer classes.

Bridge to the Future


Uppers

Socialising with other graduate engineers, gaining an insight to office and on site experience, learning what will be expected of me when I graduate and enter full time employment


Downers

The occasional scouting for work, very rarely happened but when it did I was left without work for an hour or so and felt a bit useless!


Advice to Potential Interns

Go for it! - The team are so lovely and friendly you will be settled in in no time at all! If you are worried about being stuck on something or not having the knowledge and understanding for a certain task, there are always people around to give advice and talk you through the processes.

So much more than an internship


Uppers

I was challenged through the many different types of work I was given, and respected by my collegues as a true contributor on the team.


Downers

The general types of projects at CH are very engineer heavy, so there isn't as much design freedom as there would be in a fully architectural firm.


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure you want to be working for the company you choose to be with, but once you've picked... go all in.

Yes
