Our offices across the country were in awe of the Solar Eclipse! Here's a shot from our Boulder team.—30+ days ago
At Cadmus, in partnership with our government and commercial clients, we deliver services and solutions that transform markets and behaviors, create social and economic value, and improve people’s lives. We emphasize technical excellence and believe deep technical expertise is critically important. But we’ve also repeatedly proven that the most effective results are achieved when experts across diverse disciplines work together to dramatically expand the solution set available to our clients.
That is the collaborative consulting environment we’ve created at Cadmus, leveraging exceptional expertise in the physical and life sciences, engineering, the social sciences, strategic communication, architecture and design, law, and policy analysis to support our clients and advance social good. In the future, we aim to continue to expand the capabilities and expertise we offer our clients to ensure we can support their goals on any issue that advances their interests and the interests of society at large.
Cadmus’ LEED-CI Gold certified headquarters in Waltham, Mass.
Cadmus has made a commitment to achieving healthy, productive, high performing office environments that create a smaller environmental footprint in all of its major offices. To accomplish this, in our search for new office space, we prioritize and choose ENERGY STAR® certified buildings, LEED® certified buildings, or similarly high performing buildings whenever possible. In some cases, we've transformed the efficiency of entire buildings through the concerted efforts of our staff.
We purchase energy from renewable sources equal to 100 percent of our electricity consumption for all of our office locations as a participant in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Green Power Partnership. Cadmus’ green power purchases avoid an estimated 700 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year, according to EPA’s Green Power Calculator.
Since 2004, Cadmus has been proud to be ranked among the one percent of U.S. businesses known as Best Workplaces for Commuters for meeting the National Standard of Excellence in commuter benefits created by EPA and the National Center for Transit Research. We select office locations that maximize opportunities for public transportation and shorten commutes, and provide subsidies to our employees for using mass transit.
In 2014, Cadmus was recognized by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments’ Commuter Connections program for our outstanding transportation incentives. We’ve also received MassCommute’s Excellence in Commuter Options (ECO) Award.
We encourage commuting to work on bike by subsidizing the purchase of a bike for each employee, offering an annual bike maintenance stipend, and installing bike parking and storage for all our offices. Thanks to the subsidies for mass transit passes and other commuter benefits we offer our employee-owners, Cadmus is helping to reduce traffic, cut traffic-related pollution, and improve our staff’s quality of life.
Cadmus has formed partnerships with select organizations to provide financial, material, and in-kind support for activities that align with our strategic vision to create social value through actions that protect the natural environment and improve people’s lives.
The Charles River Watershed Association (CRWA) is active in the Boston area that is home to Cadmus’ headquarters. Founded in 1965, CRWA is one of the nation’s first watershed organizations, dedicated to using science, advocacy, and the law to protect the 80-mile-long Charles River and its 308-square-mile watershed. Cadmus has supported and actively participated in CRWA’s annual Charles River Cleanup since 2007.
Morrison Child and Family Services delivers specialized support services to children and families in the Portland, Ore., area who are coping with adversity and trauma. Cadmus has been a proud partner of Morrison since 2000. Members of our Portland staff are involved in activities with Morrison on a regular basis, including a monthly employee donation, garden clean-ups at the Morrison Center, and supply drives throughout the year.
The Nature Generation (NatGen) is a national organization dedicated to inspiring responsible environmental stewardship in the nation’s youth. NatGen’s annual Green Earth Book Award acknowledges authors who write and educate about the environment for school-age children. Through our partnership with NatGen, Cadmus supports and leads educational programs in the Greater Washington Metro Area near our Arlington, Va., and Bethesda, Md., offices. Many of our executive leadership team members serve on NatGen’s advisory and executive boards; staff at all levels volunteer to lead environmental education games, maintain a local nature trail, fundraise, and more.
Our employee-directed charitable giving program was launched in July 2006 by president and CEO Ian Kline, who believed we could expand the social value created through the firm’s charitable activities by allowing our amazingly engaged employees to direct some of our resources to organizations they care about deeply. This program allows our employee-owners to be directly involved in deciding how and where Cadmus provides charitable support. Because the applications are strengthened by employees’ active involvement with the programs and organizations in question, the program also gives Cadmus the opportunity to encourage the good works that Cadmus’ employee-owners support with their own time and donations.
The employee-directed charitable giving committee, composed of employee representatives from throughout the company, meets quarterly to consider staff recommendations for charities and nonprofit organizations to receive one-time contributions from Cadmus. Through careful consideration of all proposals received, the committee works to reflect the wide-ranging interests and values of Cadmus’ employee-owners.
Past recipients include:
Cadmus currently has 16 offices spanning the United States, from Oakland, California, to our corporate headquarters in Waltham, Massachusetts (just outside Boston!). While we do not always have openings in every location, each office brings a unique flavor to the Cadmus mission and vision.
I have been working at Cadmus Group full-time (More than 3 years)
You work with some great people. There is a ton of experience in the office across different areas of government, including very senior leadership positions. The employees are a pleasure to work with and the work is really interesting.
The pay is not competitive and the benefits have been slipping over the years. Not just things like the health plan and vacation (which are fine, but not as great as they used to be), but the intangibles as well, like office happy hours and group activities.
Advice to Management
Reach out to your employees and make a connection. Your staff feel expendable and we have lost too many good people.
I applied online. I interviewed at Cadmus Group in August 2017.
The initial phone screening consisted of me explaining my résumé/background with an occasional question during along with a few questions afterwards. It was about 15 minutes. I didn't make it past this interview, but was told there would be a technical interview afterwards if I did.
