    Pros

    Cardone is great at hearing ideas and having an open door policy! I have been with the company for a little over 7 months and already being pushed to think about what my next career move is so I can get training on it. There are so many learning and training tools available in an atmosphere that is collaborative!

    Cons

    There are none to share!

    Pros

    Solid financial company. Most coworkers are helpful. Management gives you the tools to succeed.

    Cons

    CEO is a loose cannon. Quality of some product lines are poor. I feel like they follow the competition rather than blaze their own trail.

    Advice to Management

    Get truly innovative and stop following the competition, Focus more on quality and become partners with your customers. Right now many of your customers are not satisfied with your attitude.

    Pros

    Work/life balance is in correct proportion.

    Cons

    Ownership and senior leadership is rudderless at this point. Hemorrhaging customers and shifting operations to MX all at once is a recipe for disaster. Business model is seriously flawed. It's unfortunate that once it was left up to the kids to run, they dropped the ball and continue to do so on a daily basis. The only way to salvage the business now is to sell to a capital investment group that can right all the wrongs of current ownership.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a CEO that actually has a vision and can convey that vision with honesty. There is an air of mistrust that permeates throughout the place. They need a CEO that shoots straight and is honest with the employees and maybe the family can right the ship. Unfortunately I believe the damage has already been done.

    I worked at Cardone Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Peers and professionals, on the most part, were great to work with; those that had been with the company for 10 years or more understood the culture from "back in the day." I worked there 14 years in various operational and business roles, so I was gainfully employed and opportunities definitely existed.

    Cons

    The leadership of the company changed drastically in 2011-2013 and lost the family-feel; this became very evident after a failed attempt to sell to an investor group. They tried to bring the family back in to save face a bit with the employees, but many saw the inevitable coming. Plus, nearly all the manufacturing that was once in Philadelphia had been transferred to Mexico, so many people had already lost their jobs along the way. Worst part of working there was low comparative pay and the ongoing cycle of pushing performance reviews out, later and later (first they waited until Feb, then the next year it was March...and so on).

    Lastly, the quality of the products became a significant problem and new ways of remanufacturing needed top be introduced and old timers needed to realize that a part had changed drastically after being rebuilt multiple times in 30 years. They were resistant to change and would not invest money into new methods/equipment.

    Advice to Management

    None
