At Pricewaterhouse, a new hire with a bachelor's in a construction-related field can start at $50,000 or more and receive an annual bonus of $10,000, with an "even crazier" package for a newly minted master of business administration with a bachelor's in engineering, Braz
confirms.Pricewaterhouse hires 4,000 to 6,000 new grads annually, including 500 to 700 from design and construction programs, adds a company spokesman in Chicago.
Rather than try to outbid any "crazy" offers, some firms try to win over new grads with a holistic approach.Compared to Pricewaterhouse, where new hires often work such long hours that Pricewaterhouse is trying to let them work from home on Friday nights, CH2M Hill promises to support a balance between work and family.In the past year and a half, CH2M Hill also upgraded its policies on tuition reimbursements, casual dress and telecommuting–and decreased its overall attrition to 9% last year, down from 12% in 1999.
