    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Cardno full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great benefits; obviously going through transition but working towards positive goals.

    Cons

    Based on Matietta, Georgia office location (now ATC) poor management; hostile work environment; less than encouraging atmosphere for women in Field Technician roles; bogus investigations into sexual harassment by HR into accused coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    No advice since Cardno sold out to ATC. ATC WORSE than Cardno in all above cons.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Cardno full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with and work for. The company is large so there's lots of room to move around or upward if you're hard working. It's an international company which allows for transfers to other parts of the world if that interests you. Benefits are average.

    Cons

    As a consulting company most jobs require travel. Some projects are 1-2 years long which can require A LOT of time on the road. For some folks this is a positive and it was for me as well in the beginning but it can be draining after several years. The company (my sector) is very top heavy and the folks at the top of paid well but the lower and mid level employees are not. Moving into leadership roles can also be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation to your younger and mid level staff. Take the time to recognize those with potential and invest in them through their salary, training, and encouragement. Doing these things will likely result in very loyal employees who appreciate and respect the culture you are trying to maintain.
