    I worked at CDI Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing Pay
    Traveling (with Per Diem)
    Willing to Certify / Train
    Accommodating (personal life and travel)
    Fun and Friendly Co-Workers
    Best Benefits I ever HAD!

    Cons

    Contracting Issues
    Management Has ZERO Communication
    Waste so much money outsourcing. ( Giant empty industrial space. Fill it with good tools and workers and make your own goods.)

    Advice to Management

    My advice, WAKE UP! The upper management is the reason why this company is going into the gutter. CDI is making no money and the stock is plummeting to garbage. The people they hire to run this place is the joke. They don't get the right contracts or make good enough decisions which in turn ruin all of the workers lives.

    Just a quick example. Workers come to CDI Marine, looking for travel, or in house (shop work).... Why is the managers bidding jobs in Newport News? If we wanted to work in Newport News, We would go apply for a job THERE! Give us the hard and challenging jobs we deserve and desire.
