    Pros

    interesting projects
    good salary
    opportunity to work internationally
    pleasant working environment

    I enjoyed my time at Cardno. The company has a large presence in the oil and gas sector as a civil design and construction management firm. There are benefits and drawbacks to working for a multi-national firm, and I eventually decided that I would prefer working for a mid-size firm based in the USA that was more focused in my area of expertise. I would still consider returning to Cardno.

    Cons

    large corporate bureaucracy
    poor work/life balance
    huge overhead costs cut into funds available for employee raises
    poor market sector outlook (oil and gas)

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend that management seek to diversify the business more out of the oil and gas sector. I would also recommend cutting through red tape and bureaucracy, which sometimes seemed to occupy more of my time than actually doing my job.
