Productive workplace working closely with in house personnel.
Pipefitter (Current Employee) –  Akzo Nobel / Neurion17 December 2018
Working with in house personnel was an advantage. All the personnel at the complex were easy to get along with. Had some difficulties due to contract issues. All in all was a good place to work. The best part was living so close to the complex. It made it easy when I was on call.
Pros
Lunch was paid for from time to time. Some of the necessary tools were provided for by the complex.
Cons
Health care was very expensive. Some of the PPE was hard to get ahold of.

Exclusive Culture
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 December 2018
CH2M is a good work/life balance place. However the culture is very exclusive and not open or welcoming new hires. Unless you know somebody inside, it will be too difficult to secure enough work load for yourself.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
difficult to get into the culture

Work until you drop
Safety Advisor Turnaround (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB3 October 2018
Money was okay and if you like the hours with no home life it was fine but my role was all work and no time off.
The wage was competitive but for a short duration job I would have expected it to be a little higher.
Pros
competative wage
Cons
No stability.
