Former Freelancer - Civil Engineer

I worked at CH2M

Pros

Interesting projects, ample technical support, advancement opportunities, flexible schedules.

Cons

Pressure to increase billable percentages and attract clients.

Current Employee - Vice President

I have been working at Cardno full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Great environment for career growth. Relatively flat orc structure. Each employee has the ability to work on great projects, with great colleagues, and make a Cardno home. The company has been... really supportive during Covid with flexible work schedules, work from home,( if position viable viable from home)

Cons

There still seems to be a little siloing between business areas, but we have made great strides.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you’re doing, Cardno is becoming the go to place to work.
