You can learn a lot depending on what office you work at, but you won't earn near as much as you learn. The only other pro is depending on your department, your position, or what time of year it is there can be an okay work life balance.
They constantly cut your legs off with knee jerk reaction management decisions based on short sided economics and then tell you to go run a marathon. If you are still able to produce and keep clients happy after all of that, then you still don't get anything in return. Sounds like they " value their #1 assets" to me. I predict that the various bits and pieces of Cardno that don't make the expected billing rates and can't just flip a switch and start charging more money will eventually be sold off to some other company.
Advice to Management
Upper management talks a good game but doesn't even come close to delivering. Eventually you are going to have to run a business like is should be run instead of how you think it should based on the share price. Take a good long hard look at the management structure and tighten the belt in that area instead of letting go of administrative staff that is necessary and vital to the operation. 10 admins equals 1 of the upper manager club that keeps getting bigger.
