I have been working at Cardno part-time (more than an 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

    Pros

    Tremendous amount of potential that is not actualized. Opportunity to work with scientists from a variety of fields. Fast paced (and unchecked) growth leaves opportunities for promotion. Cardno is a conglomerate of many acquisitions which operate as separate businesses, of which ENTRIX is one. This business model could allow for some excellent collaboration with professionals in a variety of different fields, if it was encouraged. My office has great staff and I wish the same could be said for top level managers. The quality of your experience with Cardno ENTRIX varies greatly depending upon which business unit/upper management team you are working with. Some of these individuals were great managers but....

    Cons

    Remote office management from unrelated regions. Upper management has micromanaged projects out of project managers hands and this hurts client relationships and makes project management extremely stressful, sometimes taxing professional reputations as a result. Large scale and poorly thought out knee-jerk layoffs often land ENTRIX understaffed in the very areas in which they need to be expanding growth. This has been achieved in an effort to preserve the jobs of a certain good old boy network of senior members in less economically productive areas. It contributes to an air of instability and expendability that is causing voluntary resignations across the board and detracting from the company's economic viability as a whole.

    I worked at Cardno full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    My office was filled with great people. Wish the same could be said for Corporate folks.

    Cons

    No support. In some ways you are set up to fail. Benefits are horrid. Senior management is pathetic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many managers. There needs to be a corporate housecleaning of senior staff, VPs, and principals.
