    I have been working at Cardno part-time for more than a year

    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.

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

    Pros

    Cardno appears to be a company based on integrity, which speaks loudly in today's business climate. The top management appears to be stable (even with the recent change of CEO). The diverse suite of services and business locations is impressive by anyone's standards. I'm very proud to say I work for Cardno.

    Cons

    Numbers are the "gods" of big business; which is unavoidable. I'm no longer a valued employee, but rather a valued number as long as all my micro-managed numbers line up properly every moment of each day, and I have backup to prove it. The future is no longer relevant beyond next week. While Cardno's vision for 2020 is being presented, current employees are catching on that the vision may be at their expense for future employees to enjoy. The atmosphere has become reactive rather than proactive. It's every employee for themselves. HOWEVER... given the changing climate, things will likely get better (how can they not?).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace the future, but don't forget the work force that is getting you there. Right now the term "organic growth" is tossed around like a bad slang term. We see top management promoting themselves to new heights... really hoping that isn't the extent it.

    - Very disorganized company

    - No teamwork, everyone is on their own
    - No communication between managers and employees
    - low salary
    - you have to drive your own car and pay gas and tolls out of your own pocket to schools with no reimbursements from Cardno ATC
    - No training for new hires

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Cardno full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a steady job with a steady income. There is a lot of freedom in this office to create your own schedule and work style.

    Cons

    This office lacks leadership and useful training. In a entry level position I have found it difficult to gain skills or direction for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the time in to properly train your new employees. Training mudules do not replace leadership and strong project managers.
