    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of diverse opportunities. Fair compensation. Good support (HR, office, IT, etc.). If you have to work for somebody besides yourself, I can't think of a better place (and no, I don't own stock ...yet). Some of the reviews from lower level people (like myself) seem a little unfair to me. It seems that some people feel entitled to big bucks and big responsibility too soon. To move in this company, you need to make yourself valuable, you have to hustle to keep up your work load, and you have to be willing to solve other people's problems-- the "find a need and fill it" attitude. When you've developed some cred --when you've earned it-- you have to be willing to ask for more. The managers are BUSY with "real' work (sign of a good company). They are not sitting around waiting to hold your hand or thinking of ways to make your life better. Too often I hear folks who sit around and wait for work to come their way and then complain when they aren't handed a silver spoon.

    Cons

    There are some growing pains/information gaps with all the merger-acquisition activity. It's inevitable-- change is always difficult, especially when you were already happy. Though there's always room for improvement and a lot of 20/20 hindsight, I've been pretty impressed with how they've handled all of the uncertainty so far.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Entrix gave me chance after graduating and has continued to aid my growth. I travel a lot with my position and they make sure every aspect of that process is seamless. Safety for workers is at the top the list for this employer and they make your you are properly trained and certified for all endeavors.

    Cons

    I travel a lot for work and sometimes its hard to coordinate personal life but in all I love working for this company,

    Advice to Management

    Give your project hires reviews and let them know what are their strengths and weakenesses
