    Pros

    Great communications. Assignment of a central point of contact who responds to my queries quickly. Great supporting team. Very happy to get competitive benefits through CDI.

    Continue with the great communications which is essential to great rapport.

    I have been working at CDI Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong history
    Clients appreciate CDI
    Benefits are adequate
    Great Colleagues at the working level
    Unlimited potential that could be tapped if Executive Management had a clue
    Strong liaison with existing clients

    Cons

    No leadership
    Management by threats and fears
    Doom and gloom outlook
    Extremely high turnover
    No appreciation of hard working employees
    Inability to maintain talent - Ongoing leak of excellent talent
    Top Management never worked in the industry and are clueless
    Quarterly reorganization’s over past 5 years has resulted in complete chaos and no focus
    Most people are looking for an escape route to get out of the company
    High level of gossip by HR leadership about employees within hearing distance of their friends
    Those that succeed are “yes”folks
    Retaliation if anyone questions decisions, procedures or suggests a better way to do things

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company as soon as possible
    Position company for strong future
    Hire a real LEADER (or two) and let them do their job; better yet, promote a couple of existing and proven leaders to step into Executive Management to replace the ones we have that don’t know the oil and gas business or clients.

    I have been working at CDI Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Resources are thin and everyone pulls at least double duty. Just know if you work here, you will be doing more than your original job description for sure.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and focus on having quality people to gain more sales to raise the bottom line, not firing employees to reflect a "cost savings" on financial reports.
