I worked at Cardno

Pros

Intelligent staff, honest consulting, science, not business driven focus. Technical skills are required and can be learned from the senior staff.

Cons

No transparency from Senior Management in business decisions, no room for training or advancement for those without their PhD. Top heavy with PhD staff and too little focus on supporting staff that produce the work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep your employees in the loop and provide more structured training opportunities and career path options. Know you have talented staff and reward them as such in their career objectives.

    I worked at Cardno full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good training, exciting job sites, safe work environment stressed, travel (per diem) and where I worked, we mostly all got along well. Christmas (holiday) parties were nice. Overtime pay makes up for lower salary. This was until I left in 2010.

    Cons

    ERI was being bought out by a larger Cardno in 2010, and things started to change from a small company feel to big company games.
    The pay was at the lower end of the spectrum (for my position) while I was there.
    In order to get contracts, ERI under bid some projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A Certain branch manager used intimidation to get his job done. When this didn't work, some people found themselves out of a job.
