    Pros

    Entrix is a first rate environmental services firm. Professionals are treated like professionals. Very little micro management and the access to junior staff is excellent.

    Cons

    The company is going through a growth stage via the acquistion process. This could lead to internal competition amongst the sister companies.

    I have been working at Cardno full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Large corporation that managed to weather the economic storm of 2008 - present. Strong suite of services (some are commendable).

    Cons

    May be a good company to work for - in about five years. This is a word of warning to potential employees: Let the dust settle before you risk working for a company that's still trying to find its north star. Top management talks a good talk, but it becomes clear after the gloss fades that their lofty goals are based on dollars in their back pockets, with no anticipated trickle-down effect to the workers. Vertical accountability with no teamwork makes for a difficult work environment. If you need professional mentoring, look elsewhere. It's every man/woman for him/herself right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We see potential "lifetime" career-minded employees at all levels jumping ship. Your growth goals are impressive, getting there with your current employees would be much more impressive. Blaming your missed company-wide goals on the economic environmental has become a lame (worn-out) excuse. Blaming it on the reduction of an environmental-response (i.e. short term) project makes you appear short-sighted. Blaming it on the weather makes you appear that you didn't know how to "save for a rainy day."

    Pros

    very flexible, Co-workers are great to work with, office environment is great. Willing to spend money on new equipment, which cuts down on field work time.

    Cons

    The pay is awful, never recognized for hard work. After being bought out a lot of higher management is jumping ship.
