    I worked at Cardno full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nothing positive about this company.

    Cons

    Pay is lowest in field, very few holidays, NO bonuses, raises are insulting when you get one. No upward movement, particularly if you are not white. Total lack of leadership at all levels. No respect for workers.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue about how to keep employees happy and retain good ones, fire the deadbeats and crybabies. Respect your employees and pay them a living wage!

    I worked at Cardno full-time

    Pros

    Depending on your role you may have special perks such as working remotely, a company phone and laptop. In general, people are friendly & supportive.

    Cons

    Lacks diversity, not too many people of color. I was the only non-white in a group of about 50. They are cheap with their holidays. You become very disposable.

    Advice to Management

    Get direction!
